Seneca 7: Relay races are the bomb

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to run my first relay race and can I just say that my heart is absolutely bursting with love. Love for running. Love for this race. And love for these women. If you’re not familiar with the Seneca 7, it is a 77.7 mile relay in which a team of […]

Officially joined the #SportsBraSquad!

Fans of Kelly Roberts (of Run, Selfie, Repeat,) don’t need any explanation about this pic or this post. For the rest of you – here’s the scoop. Roberts is a fun, fresh voice in the world of women’s running. She’s a kickass runner, but she’s not an elite. And while she has an awesome bod, […]
