Lettuce-Less Salad Recipe

Did you make a resolution this year to eat better in some way?  I didn’t, but I think I should have because my January (not to mention December) was a nutritional DEEEBAAACLE.   Too many drinks, too many sweets, too many chips, cheese, chicken wings.  Yikes, I know why I don’t keep a food log.

But alas, […]

The Runner In Your Mind: Guest Post by Craig Lycke

One of my defining moments as an athlete was getting passed by a one-legged runner… Twice.

Columbia once had a half marathon called the Wilson’s Half Marathon Relay.  That race has since been taken over by the Roots N Blues people, but back in the day I ran it as my second half marathon and had […]

The Best Question: Resolutions and God

So….I got a little behind this week.  For those of you that know me or follow me on here, that is no real shocker.  Not only do I tend to take on more than I can handle, but in our business there is rarely a time when there isn’t something unexpected happening, something that sucks […]

What New Runners Need to Know: Guest Post by Kesta Smith

New runners often ask me, “What do I need to know to get started?”  First, find a group to run with; second, be consistent; and third, wear appropriate gear. All of this will help ensure your running journey is successful.

A running group keeps you accountable and makes it more fun. The weather may not always […]

Triathletes: 4 Ways to Improve Your Swim This Winter

I get call after call after call after call from budding triathletes who just can’t seem to improve their swim times.  And, when you look at triathletes as a whole, the swim is the absolute worst part for most.  If you are not terrified the whole time, you are at least glad it is over […]

Big Hairy Audacious Goals

When I met my husband, Mark, he was training for a triathlon.  I had never been a runner or a biker, but I did know how to swim and I taught aerobics (insert mental image of 90’s aerobic instructor).  So, I thought I would give it a go as well.  In triathlon, much like running, […]

Another Post on Being Grateful?

Gratefulness are you tired of reading about it yet?  I am/was.  It seems that every time I look at Facebook someone is posting about their gratefulness project or what they are grateful for.  It sounds so cliché to me.  Practicing gratefulness seems almost fake and just too forced to actually provide any real benefits.

I think […]

Healthy Holiday Treats…Yes, They Can Taste Good!

“Teet, Teet.”  Even my 2 year old knows how to ask for a treat.  My five year old?  He is fully aware that cookies, ice cream and candy are the jewels of his culinary adventure and he starts working deals for them as soon as he gets out of bed.

Eli:  “If I eat my breakfast, […]

The Worship of Skinny

I write this today for my friends who struggle with the incessant need to be skinny. I certainly know this does not apply to everyone, but I also know it is a silent struggle for way too many. You feel like your worth is determined by your size. Our society sends the wrong messages at […]

What Can A Running Group Teach You About God?

Tonight, I learned about God from a woman named Cynthia. I did not get a chance to talk with her a lot. I don’t even know a lot about her, but through her presence, I learned about God.
Cynthia is a nurse who runs. She has one child and a smile that makes you glad you […]

My Famous Spinach Balls Recipe

Well, the holiday season is upon us, right?  Food, more food, sweets, drinks, sweets and more drinks.   Some days I just feel contaminated.  But what do you do?

At Thanksgiving, my mom made a Heath Bar cake that I vowed not to eat.  It was a chocolate cake with caramel sauce and sweetened condensed milk poured […]

Winter Running is Definitely Bittersweet

I can still remember the first winter I considered running outside in the bitter cold. I remember because I was terrified. Can you relate? It was one of those things I knew I needed to do, but I was convinced it was going to be terrible, T-E-R-R-I-B-L-E.

Over the years, however, I have developed a line […]

Dress Appropriately for Winter Running: 6 Steps

Well, winter is indeed upon us.  It certainly didn’t sneak in, but has instead landed quickly and furiously.  This weekend I ended up running by myself and I will tell you, it was hard to convince myself to go.  One of the advantages I have that newer runners do not is experience.  When it seems […]

Knowing is Not Enough: Roasted Broccoli Recipe

Knowing is not enough.  It is the doing that matters.  Hmmmm…..how true that is for so many things.  All too often we know the “right” answers all along.  It’s just that doing them can be so hard.

Have you ever been to a nutrition clinic? I have been to A LOT of them and have actually […]

Brokenness Can Be a Teacher……

Ahhhhhh! Yes I am back. No I did not quit. I didn’t even have writers block.  My blog was just BROKEN!

My little endeavor here got a bit derailed a couple of weeks ago when we hired someone to merge it into our Ultramax Sports site. That is why I have mysteriously been MIA.

You might […]
