Going Raw!!

For months now I have been considering changing my diet from vegan to raw vegan. It just makes sense to me that the best foods for our bodies, are the purest. Those that are provided from the earth, and not modified or processed in any way. While my health has improved dramatically over the course…

My New Unrecorded Personal Record

At the last minute I decided to run in a local 5k, the Jingle Bell run. It was something I had checked out before and was eager to take part in although I wasn’t sure that I would be able to participate due to my recent injury. I waited until the day before the race…

Bondi Band Review and GIVEAWAY!!

Running, sweating, working out, what do all of these things have in common? They give my hair a frizzy “I just went rolling down the hill” kind of look. I’ve tried all kinds of head bands to keep my hair back and hold down those little frizzies. I’ve had to pin them down, and adjust…

I’m Baaaack!

So after nine (long, long) weeks without running, I decided to get back into the game; or should I say onto the trail? A short run down of what’s been going on: I went to a podiatrist four weeks in a row, received four cortisone injections, and just before my fifth appointment, was told that my…

Newton’s running law of motion

Recently I attended part one of a two part running clinic by Newton. The event provides information to runners on natural running style and the importance of proper form.

Treat Night-Candy Apples

Every Friday night is treat night at my house. I let my son stay up a little later this night and we make special treats to enjoy. It’s a great way to spend time together as a family and create lasting memories. It is also important not to deprive ourselves of the occasional sweet treat….

Ingredients 1 medium spaghetti squash cooking spray (I used olive oil) 1/2 cup of diced onion 2 cloves of garlic, minced 1/2 cup red pepper, chopped 1/2 cup green pepper, chopped…

48-Hour Smoothie Cleanse

For the past few weeks I have been in a slump. I’ve been struggling with personal issues and have a running injury on top of it. Unfortunately, I let these situations affect my health and haven’t been taking care of myself as I should be. My workouts have felt weak and my eating habits started…

Chocolate #9 Review

If you’re a runner than you’ve already heard of energy gels. If you have no idea what I am talking about, let me fill you in. Energy gels are created as a way to give long distance runners the fuel they need to keep going. Our body burns energy through a combination of protein, carbs,…

Juice/Smoothie 24 Cleanse

Recently I completed a 24-hour juice cleanse. Lately I’ve had some pain in the ball of my left foot, so much so that I don’t bear my weight on it when I walk. I’ve also been experiencing some pain and inflammation in my other joints. I know that my health issues are diet related and…
