The Running Mom – Healthy Lifestyle Advice from a Single Mom
Category Archives: Giveaway

Two weeks ago, I started to come down with a cold thanks to the millions of germs my 3.5 year old likes to bring home from preschool.  I thought that was the perfect time to try out some Recovery Bits – 100% chlorella algae.  I’ve had such a great experience with Energy Bits that I’ve been wanting to see how well Recovery Bits work. ...

Just because I discovered that minimalist running is the right thing for me, does not mean that I don’t feel the need to try ALL the shoes.  I love my Altra Intuition 1.5s, but I keep seeing these really cool Skora running shoes on Twitter and Instagram.  I had a really hard time deciding which ones to try because naturally, I wanted to try all...

First of all, here’s the important stuff: The winner of the Energy Bits sample pack is……Esteban! I hope you like the Energy Bits as much as I do!

I opted for the Glide with the Glide band bundle pack so I have a color to wear with every running outfit!

I want to share my love...

The Winter 100 Challenge will end on 2/29, but the fun will just be beginning for the lucky winner of the Garmin Forerunner 210. Have I told you lately that I love you? I have an insane love for my Garmin Forerunner 110 – the...

The weather here in Maryland was a total tease in the past week.  The temperatures were in the mid-60s some days and it sure didn’t feel like Winter was approaching.  Today, it’s cold again which is a reminder of why I need this challenge to stay motivated! If you haven’t signed up for Winter 100 Challenge yet, you can still do so.  There...

Every year since I started running, I have the same problem that creeps up on me as the temperatures drop – I lose my motivation to run.  Since I will be running my 3rd marathon in March, I have no choice but to keep up with my running this Winter.  However, for extra motivation and because it will be a lot of fun, I’m creating a challenge...
