Three Winners of LÄRABAR Loot

Three Winners of LÄRABAR Loot

For this giveaway of a treasure trove of LÄRABAR products, including the original bars plus ALT bars (boasting pea protein) and nutty über bars along with some fun accessories, we asked what good advice you gals have followed lately. Before getting to the winners, I’d like to share some suggestions I followed this week:

-Listen to your body. My hips have been complaining occasionally, especially when I sleep too long on one side, so I took an extra rest day this week and recommitted to rolling on a GRID.

-Listen to your friends. My book-loving buddy Ellison urged me to read Elizabeth Gilbert’s latest novel–The Signature of All Things–and I’m so grateful she did…

Martini Fridays: Of Tracks + Tests

Martini Fridays: Of Tracks + Tests

In this edition of Martini Fridays, Adrienne Martini, training for the Pittsburgh Half-Marathon using the Train Like a Mother: Finish It Half-Marathon plan, celebrates some spring-like—or definitely not winter still—weather.

Saturday’s “only 8 mile” run felt like 20 miles, which makes me think that I needed the step-back week more than I’d thought. It was one of those Godzilla-stompin- on-Tokyo runs, where I felt as graceful and swift as a giant and clumsy lizard or, more accurately, a dude in a hot and heavy foam costume.

Working in my favor was our recent less-cold snap—I categorically refuse to call 45 degrees warn—earlier in the week…

Follow This Mother!

Follow This Mother!

Mother runner Holly Schurg, 39, trained hard for her first marathon—the 2013 Dallas Marathon—but it wasn’t to be. The December race was cancelled because of safety concerns related to cold, icy weather. The news, she says, was “so, so disappointing,” but this Traverse City, Mich. mom of two—Aidan, 10, and Abbey, 8—is staying positive and looking to future events. She’ll run a race with her son this spring—the Run the Ridge 10K Team Relay in May—and has her sights set on a summer marathon.

Best recent run: Last week I got up for an easy 4-miler and finally the streets were clear of snow and ice—and the temp was 39…

Hump Day Giveaway: Smith Approach Max Sunglasses

Hump Day Giveaway: Smith Approach Max Sunglasses

So this sweet Smith Optics Giveaway has been swirling around in my head all day long. Approach Max sunglasses. Specs that, like all the other Smith Sunglasses, are just the bomb. And by bomb, I mean barely noticeable, featherweight, non-fogging, non-slipping frames with high-quality, interchangeable lenses that epitomize the word performance. (I can honestly say that, for the past year, I haven’t run or ridden a mile without a pair of Smith specs on me, unless I was confident the run was going to start and end in the dark.)

But thing is, unlike, say, sports sunglasses in the 1990′s—hello, my name is Ah-nold, but you can call me Terminator—the Approach Max also epitomize style…
