Among them is Charm City Run’s Sole of the City 10k, now in its third year with a new course. I started the morning with a REV60 BLAST class at Rev Cycle Studio, so needless to … Continue reading


#100HappyDays Update

Are you doing the 100 Happy Days Challenge? How’s it going? I’ll be honest – it’s actually pretty hard to post pictures every day.

Then it occurred to me that, hey, she might be doing a book tour. A few clicks on the … Continue reading

The objective is simple: every day, for the next 100 days, take a picture of something that brings you pure joy. It … Continue reading


Practicing Gratitude

Remember when your parents would tell you to be grateful for what you were eating because there were starving kids in Africa? Or be grateful that you didn’t have to walk a hundred miles to school like they did in their youth? At a young age, we are taught to be thankful, to be appreciative. … Continue reading

Maybe. In the spirit of the Olympics, Charm City Run and Rev Cycle Studio have teamed up for … Continue reading


“Would You Rather…” Running Style Survey

I came across this “Would You Rather” Running Style survey from Cori via Coco’s post. I’m a little late to the party but still enjoyed reading everyone’s answers. I’ve done very little running in 2014 (read: almost none), so this was great for motivation. #1. Would you rather run in a thunderstorm or a snowstorm? … Continue reading
