It sounds crazy, right? How could running help build your intuition? When you hear “intuition” you usually envision tarot cards, psychics, and ouija boards. However, it is through running, which I have learned to develop my intuition.

I am a creature of habit and simplicity, which may be while I enjoy running so much. All I need to go out for a run is to pop on my shoes, grab my earbuds & mighty, and head out the door. I have been reluctant to purchase a pair of wireless headphones. It always seemed easier to plug in the wired set I have. Finally, a couple of weeks ago, I gave a set a try. I LOVED them! ...Continue Reading →
There’s a common misconception that self-care is selfish and self-indulgent, and this keeps many people from incorporating it into their everyday lives. But the truth is, self-care is vital to our mental health and overall well-being. In order to truly be healthy overall, it’s not an option — it’s a necessity. If ...Continue Reading →
What is the Spiritual Side of Running?
It’s noticing the messages of spirit/god/or whatever you call your higher power. This may be an animal you see, tripping on a branch, or a sudden burst of insight. I believe these are not coincidences, but messages from God/The Universe.
What is “God/higher power/the universe”?
To me, God is ...Continue Reading →
Are all your friends are posting about all the 5ks, 10ks, & marathons on instagram and your wondering what the fuss is about? Have you always wanted to start running, but have no idea what you may need? Sometimes starting a new running program can be very overwhelming. It’s intimidating.
“What kind of shoes should I get?”

How often do you see repeating numbers or animals? Perhaps you think nothing of it or label it a mere coincidence. I am here to tell you, it is so much more. Often, God/spirit/universe will use these tools to communicate messages to us.
Since I run outside, I often see animals during my training runs. Instead of brushing it off, as a mere coincidence., I take note. There will be weeks that go by, ...Continue Reading →
You know the saying, “live a life you don’t need a vacation from”? Although I understood it, it never seemed attainable to me. I always thought to myself, “when I get the dream job” or “after the kids are older” or “if I just could ….”.
That is, until this past year.
I went on a 7 day Carribean cruise with my family and noticed a dramatic difference. I noticed a major shift this year. I wasn’t craving a week to relax because I already ...Continue Reading →
Have you ever watched the movie Cars? There is a part in the movie where Doc Hudson tells Lightning McQueen he must go left to go right. I always thought that was a genius lesson in the movie. Sometimes we have to do something that seems so illogical, but really will get us to our goal in the long run. Heart rate based run training reminds me of this very lesson.
You must slow down to speed up. In ...Continue Reading →
Why Heart Rate Based Run Training?
I train strictly via Heart Rate based run training. It’s been about 20 years since I first began distance running (I ran sprints in high school for a year, but I don’t count that!) and I was not always an advocate of heart rate based training.
Up until about 5 years ago, I trained according to my pace. I took nothing else into account…only my pace. I had a run scheduled and would check a box. ...Continue Reading →
