There are plenty of reasons to date a runner (see here, here, and here), but a lot of us are happily married. However, being a runner and marathoner is one of the first things I mention in job interviews. Why? Because that one simple fact can tell your potential employer a lot about yourself. Most runners embody a lot of traits of great employees. Here are just a few of the reasons employers should hire more runners: Continue reading “Reasons to Hire a Runner”
Another week of Hanson marathon training done! This week meant the start of 4:30am wake ups, the last week on the track for a while, and an improptu rest day due to some (non-running) injuries and pains. It’s still early in the training season, so the rest wasn’t a big deal. Continue reading “Hanson Method, Week 5, April 30-May 6”
My latest book I was sent to review is a little different than my normal choice.
A stylish, illustrated gift book from an award-winning artist that profiles
notable cat-loving men throughout history in words and pictures. Continue reading “Of Cats and Men”
I know, I know, I haven’t been keeping up with this post series. I have a good excuse, I ran a marathon and had to deviate from the plan for 2 weeks. But now, I’m back! This week was still mostly a recovery week from Blue Ridge, but it was kind of a Hanson week. Going forward, these will be much more exciting. Continue reading “Hanson Method, Week 4, April 23-29”
This past month I knocked out a lot of books. I owe a big part of it to my marathon recovery week, where I think I read one a day. The best part of this month is that none of the books have any relation. There are business books, running books, a kids book, a cookbook and more! Read below to see what all I read and what I thought of them. Continue reading “April Books”

This month’s bag was a huge hit in my book! It’s by far my favorite bag design so far— how cute is the ticket? Not only was the bag itself great, so were the products inside!
The third time is a charm. At least, that’s how I feel with marathons. My first two I bombed so hard that as soon as I crossed the finish I swore to never do it again. Yet, somehow I still found myself training for America’s Toughest Road Marathon, as an ambassador. I was given my choice of distance and something pulled me to the marathon. This third marathon of mine is the one that it took to fall in love with the distance. Despite the pain and suffering, I can’t wait to toe the line of another full marathon in November. Continue reading “Blue Ridge Marathon 2017”
Well, I did it. I survived week 1 of Hanson. Even though I have the Blue Ridge Marathon coming up in less than 2 weeks, I’ve started training for my desired time at the Philadelphia Marathon this November. Blue Ridge is a bucket list, but Philly will be to see what I’ve got. Continue reading “Hanson Marathon Plan: Week 1”
I read a lot of books. Some of them I review on here, but a lot of them I read and just move on. So going forward I want to at least touch base and give my overall opinion on those I don’t review completely. Continue reading “March Books”
