Gummy Running with Nicholas Megalis


I sure do love that Nicolas Megalis kid, the 24 year old musician and Vine sensation. I just bought his new single “Gummy Money” and put it on my running play list. It’s a hoot. And it encouraged me to buy some Gummy worms to make my own Vine after a recent 4 mile run, […]

The Importance of Running Partners, Jingle Bells, and Santa


Remember when Bekah, my perky running partner, set a goal to run 12 races in 12 months, but then got snowed out of the December Jingle Bells Run a few weeks ago? And then tried not to panic, because she’s a goal setter and an achiever and omg what happens if she didn’t actually get […]

12 Races in 12 Months: A Marathoner’s Story


  12 Races – A story by Bekah, the “perky running partner” I made a race calendar for myself in January. It was an answer to the question “What do I do now?” A question that presented itself almost immediately after finishing the Portland Marathon last year. I was very disturbed by the sinking bluesy feeling […]

Running Hills with my Perky Running Partner: walking counts!


As a reluctant, fair weather runner, I can always think of at least ten reasons not to run. On cold and rainy Sundays, I can think of 100. Most of them have to do with how much I hate raindrops on my glasses. And being cold. And feeling lazy. And thoughts of potential bubble baths, […]

I’m back in it to win it! And I brought friends…


Hello Dear Friends, Gosh it’s been awhile, huh? I know, I know. So much time, not enough to say. Wait. Strike that, reverse it. First of all, have you met Ken, my boyfriend? He’s a runner too! Hover over the top left hand corner of this video and press the sound icon to launch the […]

Running in the Rain: Just Do It!


If you spend much time running in Eugene, Oregon, the track capital of the world, you’ll eventually get wet. Yeah, it rains here. A lot. In fact, today is July 16th, and it’s gray and rainy right this very moment. So, what’s a fair-weather runner to do? Get used to it. Wear a hat. Stop […]

Running in Sexy, Pink High Heels: yes or no?


Sure, the pink Oh! shoes are cute and comfortable, but has athletic shoe technology really married Italian fashion design, as they claim? I decided to put them to the test, with a little help from my running partner’s baby. I say yes. Yes, yes, yes, I can run in pink high heels! Official business: This post is […]

Running Hills: Kicking butt and my short-lived advantage


The Eugene Women’s Half Marathon is coming up, and I’ve been running hills for three weeks on my own to get back into Half shape. My running partner, Rebekah, who likes to run about a minute faster than I do, was out of town for a while, so I figured I’d push myself a bit, […]

How Peanut M&M’s saved my life so I could see Johnny Depp


We aren’t buying snacks at the movie theater, I told the kids before we left for Pirates of the Caribbean. Too expensive, and we don’t need all that junk food. I hardly ever eat sugar any more, since I started the Paleo Diet, so we have less junk food in the house. Sometimes the kids get […]

The Accidental Athlete without a Race: how many points for showing up?


Here’s me, this morning, at 5:40 a.m. Outside. By a pool. That I know I’m going to have to jump into. Because this is what athletes do, apparently. They get up early and swim in the cool air, and they go running in the rain, and they ride bikes faster than they need to, even […]
