Confirmed: Compliments Make You Run Faster!

Can I just take a minute to say this week is FLYING by! How is it Thursday already?! Happy Halloween!

Yesterday was my “long” run for the week: 5 miles. Something I learned: when people give you compliments you run faster. Or at least that is true for me.

These two lovely ladies were done with their run and walking it in, and when I ran past they cheered and said some really nice things. THANK YOU LADIES <3! That mile ended up being my fastest mile.


Confirmed: I love the running community.Β 

The Fort Lauderdale boat show is coming up soon and so there are lots of fancy boats docked along my route. I would say these boats are worth more than my life’s savings…. x10.

Fort Lauderdale Boat Show

One very exciting thing happened at work last week: we signed a client in the running accessories industry. (For new readers, I work at a marketing agency.)

It is so fun having a client in the running industry because I feel like I know runners pretty well!! : ) I can’t wait to start working on their campaigns … part of that will include working with running bloggers, so I will probably be getting in touch with some of you soon!

Actually, if you are a running/fitness blogger and open to working with a really cool running brand, shoot me an email at so I know you’re interested!

What is one thing you can’t run without?Β My phone!!

Do you like to run alone or with other people?

    I like to run alone! Even conversation is difficult at conversation pace for me. And I generally always have my Garmin with me. I’m interested to know what the company is and what products they do.

      I prefer to run alone too, it allows me to zone out which I love to do on a run. Even at races I sometimes wish everyone would disappear so I could run alone haha. I will email you soon regarding the blogger opp!

    This is why I turn on the “cheers” on my Nike+ when running!!

    I’m loving all the great runs you’ve had lately!
