One thing I knew going into this race was that I had a big PR coming. It had been 3 years since I last raced this distance (same race too), and I’ve changed so much in that time. The day … Continue reading
If you haven’t stepped inside a Gazelle Sports store, you might be surprised to see some non-athletic clothing for sale too! And as I walked around the store taking pictures, I must have been really drawn towards those because I … Continue reading
I can’t believe we made this trip again! 🤣 However, this time, I think it really was the last time I run this race. My family isn’t into the long distance races anymore, and I just can’t see coming back … Continue reading

Has anyone been out for a long run and you completely forgot to take your energy gel or nutrition when you planned to? I’ve so been there in the past! It can be frustrating to loose your energy prematurely instead of keeping it consistent with fueling. While it’s easy to stay on track when you’re on a treadmill constantly looking at the screen, it can be a bit more tricky if you’re outside. As my long runs are increasing in mileage for my spring races and I get back outside, this is something that I will be using.
Something I like to do during training is practice fueling so I know what works for my stomach and what works best for timing during a run in order to maximize the benefits of nutrition during a long run. That way, when race day comes, I feel 100% prepared!
Garmin alerts make it even easier to stay on track with your eating and drinking during a run!
Here’s how to set custom eating and drinking reminders:
Hold up button > Settings > Activities & Apps > Run > Run Settings > Alerts > Add New > Custom > Select your choice of either eating or drinking > Then select the interval either based on time or mileage (ex: eat every 3 miles or every 30 minutes).
Do you use this ‘Alerts’ feature? I love this! It’s a great way to stay on track during training runs and races.
Recently, I shared some of the words on Instagram that motivated me during my half marathon PR race last month. And ya’ll I’m STILL beaming with pride about this! haha If you’re amidst chasing a goal you’ve been after for … Continue reading
This February my husband and I decided to purchase an infrared sauna. Just a little background, before we built our home we discussed wanting to put a hot tub on our patio in the backyard for a way to relax. … Continue reading
