Thriving and Running. It's all good.

First things first. Have you signed up for Thrive Forward yet? If not, you should. It's free. You are entered to win a box of yummy chocolate protein bars just by signing up (as long as I know about it so I can enter you into the drawing, of course). And you might just learn a few things that can improve your health and wellness. What have you got to lose?

Now, onto the other things happening in the world of I Have Run. I have been running. If you aren't on Instagram, you don't get to see my cute pink watch on a regular basis. So here you go so you don't feel like you are missing out:

Pure excitement, I know.

Those are my runs since last Tuesday. There's another one planned for today. I was actually in my running clothes this morning but ended up showering and getting dressed because I was so dizzy all morning. I have been dizzy off and on for the past few days, but today it was a lot worse. It started to make me nauseous. The only thing I can guess it might be from is something related to this cough and cold I can't seem to shake.

It just hope I'm back on track and healthy by Saturday because I have my first race of 2013. It is only a 5K, but I don't want it to be a total bust. Keep your fingers crossed for me and send me healthy vibes!


  1. Fingers crossed and sending healthy vibes!

  2. Hope you feel better! Feeling dizzy is awful!

  3. I always love to see that pink watch on Instagram. It helps me get movin' too. :) Good Luck on your 5k. The first race of the year is always exciting!

Carpet Burn On My Butt (and a giveaway)

After two lame, pathetic, lackluster weeks of running, I woke up excited to run yesterday. And today, I wore my running clothes all morning in anticipation of my nap time run today. Even in spite of sore glutes and tired quads from getting in some P90X Core Synergistics last night, I couldn't wait to get moving on Millie. I am a planner. Today I had a plan to get my run in while my girls slept, and my day was organized accordingly. I am also a creature of habit. The first thing I do when I roll out of bed every single day is make my bed and my girls' beds. If I do something else first, it throws off the entire morning. I am a creature of habit when it comes to my running routines as well. There are a few things that differ depending on whether I am running on Millie or outside, whether my girls are asleep or not, and whether or not they are joining me in the jogger. Yet, no matter when, where, how far or with whom I run, some things are always the same. My hair goes into a pony

I wasn't sure going in...

Yep, I'm checking in. Why? Because I did something completely out of my comfort zone that I wanted to share with you. Last week I went to a place near Salt Lake called Dexa Body, where I got a DEXA Scan. For those unfamiliar with what that is, I asked Google to help us out:  "Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry  ( DXA , previously  DEXA ) is a means of measuring  bone mineral density  (BMD). Two  X-ray  beams, with different  energy levels , are aimed at the patient's  bones . When  soft tissue   absorption is subtracted out, the  bone mineral density  (BMD) can be determined from the absorption of each beam by bone. Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry is the most widely used and most thoroughly studied bone density measurement technology." Since that is pretty medical sounding, here's my take. A DEXA Scan is a tool to measure your total body composition. It specifically breaks down the regional composition of your lean and fat tissue. It gives a fat distribution

Social Media: Some good, a lot of bad, and way too much ugly

There are a lot of good things that come from social media. We can connect with people we have lost touch with. We can unite as a group (runners!!) with a comment interest. We can promote a good cause. Sadly though, what social media does best is makes us feel bad about ourselves and makes us feel negatively towards others. This isn't just my opinion, although I can unquestionably support the truth behind this based on my own experience. I have spent way too much time feeling bad about myself as a result of comparing myself to others based on their Instagram or Facebook versions of themselves. And there are several people I have started feeling negatively about or have become completely annoyed with because of their IG and FB posts. It isn't just me though. There are actual studies that can back me up on the negative impact social media can have. I have read dozens of articles reviewing many different studies that show the overwhelmingly negative (vs. positive) effec
