Faithfully Fit: 7 Verses To Help You Stay Spiritually Sweaty

FFcover
"Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies." 1 Corinthians 6: 19 - 20 Contrary to the likes, follows and glossy images you see today, I did not always honor God with my body. In fact, I did the exact opposite. Diet and exercise where my god and… READ MORE

Trainers Have Trainers…I Teamed Up To Shape Up

krcover
Being a professional, in any field, doesn't mean you don't need professional help in your field from time to time. So, after a year of exceptional running and average cross-training, I decided to make the latter exceptional too. Well hold up, let me clarify average. Average in the sense that I wasn't really pushing myself. Yes, I teach 10+ classes a week, 50% of them which I do majority of the class with them, and I run (hard, almost throw… READ MORE

In It For The Long Run: How I Learned To Love Running

bf5
Yes, you read that right. I "learned" to love running. In fact when I first laced up to shape up almost 10 years ago I remember truly hating it. I was getting my MFA in Acting at The University of Texas at Austin and everyone knows what kind of running community this utopia in Texas has. Lady Bird Lake (formerly Town Lake) was only a hop, skip and jump away from campus, so many of my classmates were amongst the "real… READ MORE

Home Is Where The PR Is! My Percy Sutton Harlem 5K Recap

HR4
(Percy Sutton Harlem 5K- left 2012, right 2016) Harlem stand up! I had such a blast running my "hometown" 5K this past Saturday. The last time I ran the Percy Sutton Harlem 5K was in 2012. I was qualifying for the 2013 NYC Marathon, the Olympics had just ended and I was beyond fired up from all the "gold medal" glory - same story this year. That 2012 5K was a special race because it was the fastest I had ever… READ MORE

Life Is An Endurance Sport, So Go For Gold!

Olympics
Oh my, it's happening, I'm experiencing full blown Olympics withdrawal. Every four years I cancel all social plans, hit the gym as if I'm on Team USA and literally feel mentally high, all thanks to this glorious event. I've been obsessed with those five rings since I was little, and while a lot has changed since my first Summer Olympics memories in Seoul, South Korea, I can honestly say that Rio was the most inspiring by far. Team USA took home so much… READ MORE

Summer Running, Don’t Sweat It!

RR5
I will lay out in the sun all day and ride my bike all season. However running outdoors in the summer, two words - No. Thanks! "I have to manage my sun exposure!" This the excuse I often give. Which by the way is somewhat true, therefore fair. However the real reason I hate running in the summer is I honestly feel like I can't breathe. Something about the heat and hoofing it by foot makes me queasy. But I love… READ MORE

“Completely” RAD: 7 Gems From My 7th Half Marathon

BK5
People always ask me if I ever run out of town races, and I’m like, "Yeah I run the Airbnb Brooklyn Half!” Inside joke for New Yorkers. No but seriously, I love traveling from my Harlem Central Park trails to Brooklyn’s Prospect Park for some 13.1 fun. The energy is so RAD in Brooklyn and the course is by far my favorite. However the best part about running half marathon #7 on Saturday was I PR’d!!!!! Running a sub 2:00 half… READ MORE

Spring Training: 4 Ways To Run A Different Race

PR1
Spring is here and I can't wait to lace up and gear up for a RAD training season. Yes I run all year long, but there's something about the crisp air and layer-less fun that running in the spring provides that really rocks my world. That, and I usually run my annual half marathon in the spring. This year it is the Airbnb Brooklyn Half, the largest half-marathon in the country, again. Last year's race was my first go round with this infamous borough's… READ MORE
