I've been running for quite some time. The people I hang with run, my social media friends run. Oftentimes when we're talking shop, if you're new to running, it may sound like we're speaking a foreign language. There are so many terms and slang words, especially when it comes to shoes. Here are just a few:

The feeling of the warm sun on your bare skin after you've been in the cold ocean. The excitement of your body warming up as you begin a run on a winter morning. The pleasure you get when you walk into your home and see the light of a candle and smell its scent on a cool fall afternoon. Crockpots, a fleece scarf wrapped around your neck, warm baked goods, steamy bubble bath, a fire in the fireplace -- all things that bring a reaction, most of the time one of joy and comfort.

"The fastest half marathon I've run". That's how I might describe my experience running Rock n Roll Half marathon with Pavement Runner this weekend. I am not talking about time - our average pace was 10:41! - I'm talking about perceived time. This race flew by and I have never been more sad for a race to end.
It started a few months ago when Brian and I discovered we were running the same race. We were gratified to have the chance to meet since we have been friends for quite some time … [Read More...]
