Bulu Box Review and Promo Code — Get Yours FREE!

bulubox

If you took a look through my kitchen and bathroom cabinets, you would find tons of not-so-well organized health and fitness products, from snacks to supplements. I'm one to try pretty much anything, and in my quest to be as healthy as I possibly can be, that means I end up with a whole lot of … [Read more...]

Putting Myself ‘Out There’

beach2007

For more than three years now, I have been keeping a secret. I have a blog. While those of you who follow me on Twitter -- my main forum for publicizing the goings-on here at "The Final Forty" -- may be scratching your heads right now, allow me to explain. I started blogging in January of 2010 … [Read more...]

Race Recap: St. Paddy’s Day 10-Miler

dscf3094

In addition to consuming all sorts of green goodies yesterday -- and, unfortunately, I don't mean spinach and celery -- I tackled a new race distance: the 10-miler. I ran the St. Paddy's Day 10-miler hosted by the Freehold Area Running Club. Once again, I cut it dangerously close to the start of … [Read more...]

Fear of the Unknown

2013-03-15-15-10-31

It's hard for me to believe that it was just a few short weeks ago that I was terrified of not being able to finish a half marathon. And yet last weekend I ran a 20K (which, come on, is pretty much a half marathon!), and yesterday I registered not for a St. Patrick's Day 5K, but instead decided … [Read more...]

Race Recap: Miles for Music 20K

dscf3029

Yesterday I took on my first 20K, and I did it for time -- unlike my first half marathon in Disney World last month. It was a race organized by a local music teacher and runner that benefits music education in schools, and I thought that was a great reason to get out of bed at 6:45 on a Sunday … [Read more...]

New Challenges, New Distances

img_4424

Ever since I returned from my Disney Princess Half Marathon trip (recap part one here; recap part two here), I've been anxious to put my half marathon training to the test. As you may recall, I didn't exactly perform at my best in Walt Disney World -- namely, because I decided to make photo ops and … [Read more...]

Race Recap: Disney Princess Half Marathon (part two)

727314-1128-0050s

Just in case you missed my previous recaps from the Disney Princess Half Marathon weekend: check out my expo recap here, and race recap part one here. When I left off, I had spotted my ChEAR Squad in front of Cinderella's Castle. Now I know what they mean by the power of the spectator in a race, … [Read more...]

Race Recap: Disney Princess Half Marathon (part one)

img_1886

I've been waiting for a long time to be able to write this particular post: a recap of my very first half marathon in my very favorite place in the world. I've decided to split it into two sections because, otherwise, it would just be RIDICULOUSLY long...especially since I thought I'd share the … [Read more...]

Recap: Disney’s Fit for a Princess Expo

dscf2603

I thought I'd start my Princess Half Marathon weekend recaps with a look at the race expo (if you didn't see my first post-Princess recap, click here). Appropriately dubbed "Fit for a Princess," the expo was pretty much the female runner's heaven, with endless booths of must-have running gear and … [Read more...]
