Hello again! It has been almost a year and a half since our last post on Technically Running, and to be honest, for much of that time, I wasn’t sure if we’d ever come back to it. Between finishing my PhD at the end of 2014, moving to a new city and starting a new job in 2015, and some rough personal … Read More

Running in the dark can be a wonderful pastime. I’ve always found pounding the quiet, pre-dawn pavement or jogging around the nighttime streets to be peaceful and relaxing. (It’s also a great way to beat the heat during the summer!). However, if you are a runner who enjoys running in the dark, or who must because of scheduling restrictions, safety is an … Read More

Finding a pair of jeans that fits well is one of my least favorite things to do. Not only are my legs several inches longer than most people’s, but I have a generous helping of thigh and butt relative to my waist. This means that I am often forced to buy jeans that are an inch or two too large in … Read More

Advocare_24Challenge1

I’ve written a few times on this blog about my struggles with weight gain/loss. A few years ago, over the course of about 2 years, I gained a significant amount of weight. Before our wedding, I managed to lose about 25 pounds of it by counting calories and running and was very happy with my progress. That said, because I … Read More

One of my favorite pastimes is watching movies. So, now that my racing season is over until the spring and the temperatures are starting to drop outside, I decided it would be a good time to enjoy some inspirational running movies and share my picks with you!

As most long distance runners will tell you, running is just as much about mental toughness as it is about physical toughness. We’re now four days out from running our first marathon and, at this point, it feels like it’s all about the mental game. I’m confident in all of the training I’ve done, and my longest run of 21 … Read More
