Maya and I have tagged along on her dad's business trip, and I’m currently writing this blog post from a hotel room in Peoria, Illinois. I have a love/hate relationship with traveling with my daughter. On one hand, the change of scenery is a good thing. On the other, a strange room and a break from routine can be a recipe for disaster.
My daughter Maya will be turning the big o-n-e next month and the pressure is mounting to plan her birthday party. I’m finding myself getting caught up in the details because I want the day to go perfectly. But let's be honest for a second, first birthday parties are really for the adults!
Highlights of this past week's bloggers offer tips on splitting up your long runs, snacking before runs and sleep, finding the right racing flats (if you should wear them at all), and some great reasons to be motivated to run.
Snacking used to be associated with overeating, but choosing healthy snacks before and after runs can help avoid getting too hungry and overeating at your next meal. They can also help fuel you for your run, and aid in recovery.
