    Review of the Bugaboo Runner

    Disclosure: I received the Bugaboo Runner for free. While I received the stroller for free, all opinions are my own.

    Recently, Bugaboo reached out to me to test their new stroller, the Bugaboo Runner. It looked like a very interesting and different stroller than I was running with and I was very excited to give it a try. Because of B’s schedule I have to do 90% of my running with a stroller, so having a stroller that works excellent helps keep me motivated and wanting to go run. Some of the main features I found helpful are the reversible and reclining seat, the brake on the handle bar, and the fixed front wheel. There are a ton more features about the stroller I loved too, but these were what really made a huge difference when running with it. Continue reading…

    La Palma 5K Race Recap

    I ran the La Palma 5K again this year. Normally I do the 10K, but with limited to not consistent running, I knew it wouldn’t be a great idea to try for the 10K, because I know I always end up racing… racing a 5K sounded a little bit more forgiving than racing a 10K. I was so excited to wear a few new Sparkle Athletic pieces including this new skirt and awesome leg warmers. Races like this are so much fun because they are small, easy to get to and this one is always very patriotic. I also grew up in the area so running where I ran in high school is always a good memory too. Continue reading…

    June Recap

    I just wrote my May recap, and June is already done! So this month I did really well getting back into running and going to the gym. I ran 41.6 miles, which is the most I’ve ran in well over a year. After my surgery in May, I waited until June 8th to run, which was when I felt awkward and not ready to get back to it. So I waited until the 15th and tried again and felt normal! So I did all my running from the 15th through the 30th which I thought was really good. My average pace was a little over 9 minutes per mile and most of my running this month was once again done with the stroller, which was fine. Continue reading…

    May Recap

    Sooooo it’s almost the end of June and here I’m coming in hot with a May Recap… Well the computer took ANOTHER crash… and finally got it re-fixed and I’m hope I’m here for the long haul because my apple care warranty is up in August, so lets pray I don’t have more issues.

    Struggling through track…

    It’s not a secret that I am enjoy coaching cross country a lot more than track. I personally enjoy running longer distances, I can actually run with the kids on their training runs and the races are so exciting. I was also one of the crazy ones in high school that enjoyed cross country more than track which is probably another reason why I just like cross country more. This year things have been a little different with track and I have my own ‘group’, the one and two milers, which has really helped me feel like I have more ownership in the program and has allowed me a little bit more one on one time with my athletes.
