Race Preview: Run Inspired 10k + DISCOUNT

In just a little less than two weeks, I'll be running my first race in months -- the Run Inspired 10k! I haven't run a 10k in quite a while, but I also haven't run in quite a while... whoops! So, on Sunday, October 23, I'll be heading up to Winterthur, Delaware for what sounds like a totally amazing race!

This race is described as, "A challenging 10k (6.2 miles) on paved pathways that lace and intertwine through Winterthur’s rolling hills, gardens, and forests." Doesn't that sound enchanting? This is all going down at the Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library, which is supposed to be a beautiful mansion/venue. I've never been, so this will be sort of a racecation for me!

The Last Day of my September Whole 30

Happy Tuesday! Can you believe it's already October? This fall is just whizzing by! 

Today is the last day of my first Whole 30, and it's a bittersweet ending. I know that it doesn't actually have to end, but it was pretty exciting having a goal and a timeline and checking off the little boxes on my calendar each day I completed. I'm super proud of myself for taking it seriously all month and not cheating! I feel great, I've lost weight, and I feel like I've finally gotten my diet back in check. I can't wait to share my final results with you - along with my general thoughts on the program - but for now, that's all I'm going to tell you until I'm done (which is in less than 24 hours! Wow!).

3 Reasons to Run the Annapolis Running Classic + DISCOUNT

It's Throwback Thursday! Since there are only 50 days left until the race, I thought I'd share this 2015 post with 3 reasons why you should run the Annapolis Running Classic. As a member of the A-Team, I gain free entry to the race, but I also get to share a discount code with all of you! Use the code ALEXIS16 to take 10% off on registration this year. Hurry before it sells out!

Today, I'm just doing a check in with you lovely readers with three reasons why you should run the Annapolis Running Classic in November.

I cannot contain my excitement for this race! I only have two scheduled races remaining this calendar year, and this will be my last one for the year. I have been training, though I really need to pick up the training a bit over the next few weeks. It is so daggone hot outside, though, so I will really need to plan out my runs!

Yesterday, my dad offered to take me through a brutal stair workout. I'm going to take him up on his offer, but I will admit that I'm scared. He knows how to kick your butt on a workout! I'm still such a wimp when it comes to running. Guess I'm going to have to get over it pretty quickly!

Okay, so you came here to find out three reasons why you should run the Annapolis Running Classic 10k or Half Marathon. Here goes!

Can I Take a Rest Day Now?

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I have been getting my sweat on ALL. WEEK. I am more than halfway through my first Whole 30 program, and I've finally gotten into a groove with fueling myself with Whole 30 approved foods so that I don't feel totally drained by the end of the work day.

This week, I'm linking up for both the Sunday Fitness and Food (with Ilka and Marathons & Motivation) and the Weekly Wrap (with HoHo Runs and MissSippi Piddlin) Link Ups! Be sure to give the link up hosts some love if you get a chance!

#AwareWithPink and Improving My Workout Ambience

Disclaimer: I received a pair of pink AfterShokz Trekz Titanium headphones to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!

Have you ever needed something, but didn't know where to start looking for it? That's how I was with wireless headphones. Time after time, I would get all tangled up in my Tabata workout, coiled up in my dumbbell curls, or get everything knotted together on my long runs. Surely there's a better way, I would tell myself. I mean, it's 2016! Somebody had to come up with a way to make it easier to listen to music while working out!

Time went by, and every time I would tell myself, I really need to research wireless headphones, I just never followed through. That's why, when I heard that I would have the opportunity to test out the AfterShokz Trekz Titanium headphones, I jumped right on it!
