Motivation to Run through Winter and Holidays

Motivation to Run through Winter and Holidays

Finding motivation to run through winter and the holidays can often be hard. And just because the weather is cold, that is no excuse to not run (or atleast, that is what I tell myself!). But it is harder to leave the warmth of the bed in dark:00am for a run (or bike/swim/gym). I’m a relatively new runner with only 3 winters under my running shoes. And it hasn’t gotten any easier to keep myself motivated. But I’ve picked up…

Date Night with Andy Potts

Date Night with Andy Potts

When all3sports announced the weekend with Andy Potts, Professional Triathlete and multiple 70.3 & 140.6 winner;  my first thought went to the evening with Craig Alexander, again organized by all3sports. I was super excited about meeting Crowie and then life (and my minions) took over and I missed the event. So this time, I was determined to not let to let that happen and instead dragged my minions along (if you’d cannot beat them, join them!)! But other than the…

Consistency – Back to Basics Training

Consistency – Back to Basics Training

It is not yet January , the time for goals and resolutions. But I have my goal picked out for this season and I’m going to treat the next 5 months as a “mini-year” with goals, resolutions and check points!

And the goal in this marathon is to complete within the official time limit. But a goal…

Chocolate Fudge Balls – Borrowed Recipe

Chocolate Fudge Balls – Borrowed Recipe

This past weekend was a major Indian festival – Diwali, known as the Festival of Lights. We Indians light a lot of lamps and firecrackers, and eat a lot of sweets (oh wait, we do the sweets part no matter what the festival). I usually make a small customary sweet and skip on the rest, this time the minions wanted to make something special and I found this recipe for “Chocolate Fudge Balls” that looked super simple. (Yes, I know…

Three Things Tuesday – Favorite Posts

Three Things Tuesday – Favorite Posts

The next in my series of Tuesday Favorites (I’m looking to make this a bi-monthly post!) and I’m excited to share some of my favorite posts. This awesome 30min yoga routine for runners from Runners World. I’ve tried a lot of yoga DVDs and some of my own make-up-as-I-go poses and try to target the usual problem spots for runners. This routine hits the sweet spot. I usually get through it in 20 minutes (because I have ADHD like that!),…
