I know I have not been blogging much about running but, that is simply because I am too busy doing it. I still owe you guys a recap of The Army Ten Miler and my thoughts on my first double digit run. But today I want to talk about how to find time to run with a “busy” lifestyle.

Basically, everyone in the world is suppppper duper busy. I refuse to use the fact that I am busy to skip out on my workouts and running. So here are some things I do to make sure I get my run in even on days when I don’t have time to shower.

1. Sign up for a race. I know for a fact that I never skipped a training run for the Army Ten Miler because I was training for a distance that I knew I could NOT do without training for it.

2. Find friends to run with. Even better if these friends show up at your house to run. It is impossible to skip a run if you have people waiting for you.

3. Wake up earlier or run later. Everyone has something to do during the day and you won’t always have a convenient time to run. I knew that I needed to get up at 4:45am to run at 5:30am. It was not easy but I felt awesome knowing that I had my workout done well before the sun was up.

4. Make sure you are doing something that matters to you. I am more likely to run when I am doing it for myself. I get more out of my accomplishments when I am proud of my work.

And because I am nuts I am running a 1/2 marathon in less than a month. Which is why I am out running in the dark with a headlamp and a reflective vest.

I was recently sent the Mizuno Wave Rider 18 to review and they could not have come at a more perfect time.

New shoes to train for a new running goal? Sounds awesome!

My first favorite thing about the shoes is the color. Running shoes are supposed to get dirty if you use them to right way and I am a huge fan of the color black. I also appreciated how easy it was to break the shoes in. I have no patience so I did a short 2 mile run in them as soon as I got them. No problems!

It is really important to have the right running shoes to make sure you don’t get injured while training. So head out to your nearest running store to take the newest version of the Wave Rider’s out for a spin.

The sleek style alone will have you running to sign up for your next race!

What tips do you use to make sure you don’t miss a run? What races are you training for?

Saying Hello Once Again!

Last summer I had a BLAST spending three months meeting my cousins!

 

So this summer it was nice to say hello to them once again with Lindt HELLO Chocolate Bars!

We celebrated my cousin’s birthday today! And between the cookies and cream, strawberry cheesecake, caramel brownie, and crunchy nougat flavors we all joked and laughed the evening away.

Often times we are all too busy with work and school to sit down and catch up with family members. Since we all live in different countries it’s great for my cousins and I to get together and enjoy some Lindt HELLO Chocolate together.

So, cousins shall we do this again next year?

A huge thanks to Lindt Hello for sponsoring this blog post and a good time with my family.

Would You Ever-Urban Remedy Edition

Do a juice cleanse?  Urban Remedy offered a chance for me to review a juice cleanse, a wellness kit or a sample of some of their items. I decided to review some of their items since I don’t see myself attempting a juice cleanse. I personally love certain cold press juices and I try to make my own blended juices as often as possible. I love how amazingly convenient it is to sip away at 5-8 vegetables and fruits as opposed to having to eat them all individually. That being said I love eating [...] Continue Reading…
