The adidas Energy Boost 2 is a lightweight neutral running shoe for long distance running. While I would’ve loved to test this shoe for longer runs, I must confess that I couldn’t test it for runs above 10k because I’m a flat-footed overpronator who uses stability shoes.

A gym membership is essential for a runner like me. 2 out of my 5 weekly runs are done on a gym treadmill.

Wanna know how I boost my run?

With all the roles I juggle, everyday becomes a tough balancing act. They don’t call me The Bull Runner for nothing. I’m stubborn and bull-headed enough to just keep moving forward. If you love doing something, don’t give it up. Just go out there and keep working toward your goals.

No excuses. Just keep moving forward.

3 weeks to go until Chicago Marathon!

It must’ve fallen into a crack on the road during my mid-week run, so I was a ball of nerves and anxiety questioning everything and anything during the latter part of the week. Then, just like that, on Sunday, it all changed. Allow me to tell you more about it. (more…)
