subtitle: this is such a life-minutiae post there isnt disclaimer large or verbose enough. you’ll have that. I never really thought Id get married. Actually strike that. I had such a poor track-record of not wanting to hurt people’s feelings I always envisioned myself proposed to, saying YES! (while never intending to follow through), and [...]

Run faster! Run futher! (guest post)

Hello! I’m Liana from Run To Munch! I can talk endlessly about myself but I know you would prefer something more entertaining. So lets talk about running. There’s two ways to improve, you either run further or faster and if you’re really lucky, you get both! I ran my first half marathon in 2011 (Boston’s [...]

Running for the “Non-Runners” (guest post).

savannah-rock-n-roll-half-marathon

I am not a natural runner. Running isn’t easy for me. I don’t put on my running shoes and go out for a run expecting the experience to be easy breezy. No matter what my running pace – whether I’m running a race and giving it my all, or telling myself to take it easy [...]

58 days.

(running tights + running shoes + sporty long sleeve = POSER misfit)   Once upon a time, in a land where it was hotter than a motherfucker something really hot, there lived a woman who loved the iron. A twenty year long torrid love affair kind of love.   And yet, on those nights when sleep [...]

Ok, before I launch into my yammerings of love for My Race Ragz allow me to revisit what I declared about doing few reviews and giveaways. Im doing fewer reviews and giveaways (rimshot!). I will no longer do reviews without giveaways attached (to me it rings all too uncomfyclose to Neener! Neener! Look what I [...]

What’s the point of compression sleeves?

wpid-2011-08-24-05.47.21.jpg

For those of you who may not know, this is a compression sleeve: (Im lobbying for a TATTOO-pattern Misfit Sleeve!) I already knew I loved me some Zensah compression apparel. I love my Zensah compression skirt & sports bra: I adore my PINK Zensah compression tank-top: I’m painfully aware (literally & metaphorically) I’m not a [...]

“Mama, you need to start running.”

MizRunsIfDragged

(this is my kind of running) The Tornado & I were out ambling around Austin recently when she stopped abruptly, turned, looked at me and stated: Mama, you need to start running. Needless to say, since this sentiment was shared in her not soft five year old voice, it garnered more than a few horrified [...]
