New England Half Marathon Training: Episode 1

In case the last post didn't give it away, I'm not a huge fan of summer. Sweating from every inch of my body while working out is bad enough. Sweating while just thinking about going outside when it's 90º or more is terrible. Going outside to work out when it's 90º or more is the... Continue Reading →

Sweat: A Definitive Ranking

Ask anyone who's ever done anything remotely physical with me and they'll let you know that I am perhaps the sweatiest person alive. In true millennial fashion, I refuse to take responsibility for my state of sweatiness and instead like to blame it on my grandmother who's the only person I know who needs to... Continue Reading →

Racing Don’ts (and one Do)

In case you didn't know, New Hampshire has kind of a big drug problem these days. So when Mama Reven sent me an email about a trail race in my hometown that was raising money to help fight the statewide heroin issue, it seemed like a good idea.

I am by no means immune to this, but I do try really hard to keep my internet “addiction” under control—I don’t... Continue Reading →

Mantra Practice, Weeks 2 & 3

I'm half way plus a day through my 40-day mantra practice, and I've gotten way into it. It feels a lot less like a chore these days than it did at the beginning, which I suppose makes sense given that it takes about 21ish days for an [easy] change in your routine to become a... Continue Reading →
