We are in the midst of our busy season here in the California desert and I am so, so busy! Which is a good thing, of course, but it doesn’t leave me much time to do much else but work. I apologize if I haven’t replied to your recent comments. I’ll be working on that this weekend. I still wanted to take a little time to share some of the things that I am currently crazy about with you.
5 Things I’m Crazy About Right Now
A few weeks ago, the folks from Stride Box contacted me to ask if they could use one of my posts in their March box! I was pretty honored, to tell the truth. They only send out 12 of these a year, and they chose my Improve Your Running by Activating Your Glutes as one of the “Do It” cards they send out with their box!
They also sent me a couple boxes to check out, with no obligation. I was really impressed with the variety of running related goodies that subscribers get each month in their $15 box! From energy bars and gels, sports wipes, lip balm, and more, plus that “To Do” workout and a recipe, runners will really enjoy their Stride Box! Check it out! And, of course, don’t miss the March box for my workout!
As I mentioned on Instagram:
So…I ran a mile today!!! My knee was feeling pretty good, so I decided to give it a try this morning. I walked a half mile, then RAN one mile! It felt good! Actually it felt better than my walking stride but I resisted the temptation to go farther. Now, six hours later, it feels fine. No swelling or more pain. I’m on my way back!!! . . I think only other runners understand that feeling of joy when you realize that you can run again! Or how it feels to be injured and unable to run for a period of time. Today #ontheblog I have tips for injured runners to stay fit and sane while they recover. It’s also the Running Coaches Corner, so join @the_suzlyfe, @running_onhappy, @loramarie03, and me and share your running related posts! The direct link is in my profile.
Yes, it’s true. I finally was able to run, pain-free, for the first time since I fell and injured my knee almost two weeks ago. The proof:
It was only a mile, but it was liberating and exciting to know that yes, I will be able to do this again!
Utah Valley Marathon
My training time may be shortened a bit, but I’m pretty sure that I will be able to run the Utah Valley Marathon on June 10! I’m pretty excited because my goal is to qualify for Boston again, and this beautiful, downhill course will be the perfect place to do so!

Daiya Greek Yogurt
Recently a friend posted on Facebook that she had found a variety of Daiya vegan Greek Yogurt at a local market. I have had a hard time finding it, so when I asked about it, she offered to buy me some because she’d be passing by the next day.
She asked how much I’d like and I said about five in a variety of the flavors. Apparently, I wasn’t clear, because she ended up getting me five of each flavor! Good thing there were only three flavors!
It’s all good, though, because it is delicious! I’m so happy that I have a large stock because I’ve been eating at least one every day. It is not too sweet, which I prefer, and it has a smooth and creamy consistency. I’m definitely a fan!
Skirt Sports Bra Sale
You all know that I’m a Skirts Sports Ambassador, right? Well, I just wanted to let you know about the awesome Bra Sale that is going on right now through February 20! You can save 50% on most bras! This is a super deal!
