What’s Not to Love? Workout Playlist

Love

Happy Valentine's week! Any big plans for the holiday? It should be pretty much business as usual around these parts, except for maybe busting out in a little of this action:  {Source} Thanks to my friend Kim and a Time magazine app she passed along, I now know that if I was on track with my average Facebook friend, I'd be married in 8 months and 9 days. Ha! Rather than dwelling on being behind the curve, I'm counting my blessings ...continue reading

2014 Grammy Nominee Playlist

grammy

With the weather hovering at or around 0° several days during January, I've been trying to divert my attention from the chill and keep warm by sweating through hot yoga classes and the circuits that I teach at work. Another welcome distraction for an admitted red carpet junkie like me? Awards show season! I fused those two ideas and designed a workout playlist for Friday's AMRAP plyometrics workout that included only the hottest of ...continue reading

Stress Less Playlist

Guys. Can we talk about the fact that radio stations are already starting their 24-hour Christmas music streams?! Premature, I'd say. But the hectic holiday season IS just around the corner (the falling leaves are a stunning hint). With shopping, parties, travel and more, we could all use a reminder to slow down and just breathe every so often. So to counteract the holiday tunes, I'm sharing my most recent playlist for the yoga ...continue reading

Running Comeback Playlist!

As I mentioned on Sunday, my podiatrist and arm orthopedist both told me I may be able to jump back into (at least a little) activity around Labor Day. I'm itching to get back to running, yoga, biking, strength training, etc.—I'm sorely missing my main form of stress relief! While I stick with walking and dream of the return of my regular workouts, I put together a fun workout playlist inspired by my little accident and my subsequent ...continue reading

Rundefeated Million Dollar Marathon Playlist

I don't think I've mentioned it on the blog yet, but due to a scheduling conflict, I'm now running my Million Dollar Marathon leg on July 21 in Illinois rather than on July 4 in Colorado. Still, it's hard to believe that in less than four short weeks, I'll be running (or maybe run/walking, hobbling, etc.) through 26.2 miles. My training has definitely not been at marathon levels, so I'm very happy that I'll be able to segment my leg into ...continue reading

2013 Summer Race Playlist

Screen shot 2013-05-07 at 8.40.45 PM

This Saturday marks the beginning of my spring/summer 2013 race season! The first of many races on my calendar over the next few months: Saturday's Market to Market Relay. Our team of seven will cover 75 miles (my portion is about 15 miles total). I know I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but considering one year ago I wasn't sure if I'd run a second half-marathon, taking on my second relay is a bit laughable. See non-runnners, ...continue reading
