My Left Knee and EPAT

Today, I went to my Dr to treat my case of Runner’s knee. I decided that I was tired of running and feeling like my knee was going to crack open. I rested for a week after my first injury but it keeps coming back. I wanted to get my pain level down to a…

The New Balance Glass Sneakers

Today, I found out, along with the rest of the world, that the Magical New Balance Glass Slippers have been snagged. Though I am recovering from the disappointment, I will live. I have no idea what I would do with glass sneakers, except to say that it would play into my Cinderella complex. It was…

Withings Pulse – Part 2 – The usage

This is a follow-up to my article on Withings Pulse. This is the year of body and activity monitors. Nike has an activity monitor geared to running. Body Media, Jawbone, Sculptec and Fitbit has another type. The Amiigo is coming out as well with their device for iPhone & Android. So many devices so little…

OMG! What’s that smell.

I had no way of knowing that this was a trend. While running in the Park this morning I started my climb up a hill to do the hill from hell, during my 3 mile run. I was breathing hard, as I tried to make that quarter of a mile upward climb, then “bang,” my…

Withings – Part 1 – The set up

Today I received my Withings pulse. Withings is a company who made an internet scale, blood pressure cuff, baby monitor and pulse activity meter. I ordered it on a whim. Yes, I have another gadget! I wanted to track my sleep patterns and most activity monitors are geared for only that, activity. I feel it…

Hydration

The other day, when I went to get my hair done, as many women do, I had an interesting conversation about drinking water and the state of our drinking water. My friends  and stylists, Meira, Anna and the business owner Peter were concerned about how to eat and drink cleanly. Hey what else do you do when you get…

The Food

  Food is not the enemy. Sometimes, I think it is. It is a hard sell for me to be neutral to it, as I have to eat every day and I enjoy it. I cannot eat the perfect diet.   I love food. It used to be used as a self soothing drug when…

Bad Run Day

This morning I awoke and got myself ready for my run. All seemed a little off as I walked to the Park for my morning run. I decided to run outside of the Park running path as the path was crowded. Those darn runners they are everywhere and it’s 6:30 am…I just laughed to myself,…

Obsessed!

  I was going about my business yesterday and I ran across a few running blogs that I have not read before. I tend to read more than I write lately. It is very comforting to see so many people writing about running and their lives. So are so inspirational it gets me thinking of…

How to Ease into Road Racing

Yesterday as I bought my new running shoes at the Adidas Store, the clerk who was helping me asked me about learning to run races. “How do I get into racing,” she asked. I asked her, “have you ever signed up for a race before?” She replied, “No.” She had never applied for a race,…

Results: Under Wear, Under There Poll

A while back, I wrote about running underwear. I started my piece with a Poll. It was not terribly shocking in itself, but here are the results of the Poll. For Women: Do you wear running bra? Yes. Of course I do. 80% No. I wear a regular bra. 20% No. I do not wear a bra. 0%…

Finally! No regrets!

Today I went to the Adidas store in Manhattan. It was not that hard to find as it was very large. I think originally the one I went to might have been smaller but this one was 2 floors. I came in and as usual. The ground floor was dedicated to Men’s Fashion and shoes….
