It's my 1 year business anniversary! And here is my gift to you: easy running. There's a free training plan.
I have a theory that shame keeps a lot of people from running. Tell me honestly (or at least tell yourself) if you can relate to the following story. Jennifer (Let's call her Jennifer. That's a nice generic name if you're an Xennial.) looks in the mirror and says to herself, "Ugh. My thighs are … Continue reading Start Running by Setting These 3 Expectations

I'm running the Colorado's Women's Classic 10 mile race on Mother's Day. It's been awhile since I did a race so I'm feeling a mix of nervous and excited. A friend of mine registered months ago.
