Training Over the Holidays: December 18 – 27

I would say “Surprise! I haven’t been training much because I got sick (again)” but I think we’ve all realized that my immune system may not be the strongest* (therefore this will most likely be my last year actually training for something over the winter). So although I did get a few runs and cross-training sessions in, I didn’t do…

With wisdom teeth extraction, to traveling, to getting extremely sick, it’s been a tough start on the training road to Boston. And while I mentioned I was mentally struggling last week, that quickly faded away as my body began to realize I was throwing it right back into routine and the soreness settled in.

Training Under the Weather: November 20 – December 11

Yesterday was my first day back to training and let me tell ya, it was rough. Not physically (okay, maybe a little – it’s hard to run after you’ve been coughing up a lung for three weeks) but mentally. I had been so amped to start training at the end of October but then I had wisdom teeth issues so…

Easy Turkey Meatball Recipe

I’m going to be honest and say that since I moved home, my meal prep game has been severely lacking. And you may think it’s because my mom is doing all the cooking but she honestly doesn’t do much. Homegirl sticks to the toffee and nuts (which if you haven’t had it yet, get yourself some because it’s bomb af.…

I’m A BibRave Pro x2

It’s official! I’m going on my second year of being a BibRave Pro! You may remember last April when I announced this originally (I was so excited because it was my first big ambassadorship – AH!) but I had no idea all the amazing things it would bring me in a short 8 months. Since joining BibRave, I’ve gotten the…
