Nourish Savannah: Natural Bath Products

Disclaimer:  As an Ambassador for Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon, I received complementary Nourish Savannah Natural Bath Products.  Nourish Savannah is a sponsor of the Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon.  As always, all opinions are my own. Since moving to Georgia, my family and I have quickly fallen in love with Savannah.  Wandering around the squares and downtown streets exploring is one of our favorite ways to spend the weekend.  Early in December, as we shopped for Christmas goodies, we {Read More}

Life Update and Training for the Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon

Have you ever had to start over?  A few months ago, while talking with my good buddy Mar, I decided that I needed to hit reset on running.  With that in mind, training for the Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon quickly became the target on the calendar.  But, I needed to face the reality of pressing the reset button.  Since moving to Georgia, I haven’t found a regular running routine. And, that is in part because military moves are really, {Read More}

What’s in my gym bag? Georgia Edition

How on earth is it already November?! With moving to Georgia and starting a new job, I still remain active on social media but I feel as though this blog space hasn’t quite garnered the attention it deserves.  I have quite a few race recaps and happenings for 2018 so stay tuned! In the meantime, let’s just say that summer running in Georgia is not my favorite and I’m still adjusting to the temperatures. And, I find it highly unlikely {Read More}

Review: Jabra Elite Sport Earbuds

Disclosure: Thanks to Jabra, I received a pair of Jabra Elite Sport earbuds in an exchange for a review on Lisa Runs for Cupcakes.   I did not receive any additional compensation. As always, my opinions are my own. This summer, upon arriving in Georgia, I welcomed the opportunity to test out the Elite Sport earbuds from Jabra. Thanks to a hectic summer of moving, no internet at our brand new house for two months (gasp – we survived!), and {Read More}

Moving: Georgia On My Mind

Well, I feel as though, I just wrote a post about moving and settling into a new location.  Oh wait, I did!  Just last summer, we relocated from New York to Kansas.  And, this summer we moved from Kansas to GEORGIA!  In good news, we should be a here for a few years.  But, then again, with the military, you can never be too certain how long you will stay in any location. So, just like last year, I present {Read More}

Motherhood and Finding Balance

When I think about motherhood, for me, it is all about balance. For those of you that are new to my page, I like to juggle a lot. My plate, like yours, is full. I’m a mom to a vibrant 6 year-old and married to an active duty service member. Let’s just say that we move around the country quite a bit….too often for my taste. And, I also have a wonderful social work career serving the military families in {Read More}

Race Recap: 2017 Rock the Parkway

When we moved to Kansas this year, I decided to sign up for the Heartland Race Series. The series consists of three half marathons over the course of five weeks, 2017 Rock the Parkway, the Garmin Half Marathon, and the Running with the Cows. This would allow me to cross off Kansas and Missouri from my unofficial running bucket list. Plus, I really wanted to find my running mojo this year. When I first started my blog, I ran ALL {Read More}

Find your Summer Confidence with Speedo

Disclosure:  Today’s post is a sponsored conversation by Speedo USA.  I received Speedo products as compensation.  All opinions regarding the Speedo swimsuits are my own. In 2010, I founded this blog as a space to talk about my postpartum journey and rekindled love of running.  And, as I worked harder and harder on my running, I realized that my core was still incredibly weak and things were not going back to the way they were pre-pregnancy.  Long story short, I ended up finding {Read More}

2017 Road Runner Sports Craft Classic – Coming Soon!
