Tuesday Tips! The stuff your Mama forgot to tell you.

Hey peeps, what up? Even though I’m not running right now, I am doing all the things I need to be doing to get myself healthy again and get back out there. Running is still a huge part of my life. I am always looking for ways to improve and new things to help me better my performance which is why today, I am sharing with you in a post I’m calling Tuesday’s Tips! Hope you enjoy.

I get a lot of hits for ‘peed my pants in a race’ and most likely they are because of this post that I wrote over a year ago.

Pee my pantsSince writing that post I’ve learned about a new product invented by a fellow runner and athlete, who also has this very common problem. What I like most is that you can actually request a free sample to try out the product before you buy it and that’s pretty awesome. Ladies, if you suffer from this as well and you’d like an option other than surgery, check out this product and let me know what you think.

Do you want to get fast?

All of us have that one go to blog, the one that we get great tips from. Mine is Tina Muir’s and if you are serious about running in any way whatsoever, you should visit this blog. Tina just ran a half marathon and killed it. She won the damn thing running a 1:18:37 and that’s not even a PR for her! Her PR half is under 1:15, that’s crazy fast. Seriously. She runs for the Saucony Hurricanes and she’ll be running the Chicago Marathon as an Elite. (I’m so stoked to follow along and see how she does.)

Tina offers tips on training as well as nutrition and she knows what she is talking about. Not only is she an elite athlete, she’s been a running coach as well, but that’s not the reason I love this blog. I love this blog because I get great tips and wonderful recipes from someone who is relatable and real. I really like this girl and I like the fact that she’s so down to earth and the next time I go to Tennessee, I will probably drive up to Lexington, Kentucky just to go running with her and learn as much as I can. So go visit her blog, you’ll love it.

These two shirts are my newest favorites. I need them now. Click on the links to find the stores.

Lastly, if you’re trying to decide on a marathon to run, it’s great to know all you can about the ones you’re considering. I like knowing if the course is hilly or flat, what the average temperature is on the day of the marathon and how other runners have liked it in the past. You can find out all of those things and more by visiting this site. You can also find out how big the marathon is and the entry fee, among other things. I love this site. They even offer a search function which allows you to search by location, state, or keyword. Pretty sweet stuff. Check it out. And once you’ve run a marathon, go back to the site and leave a review of your race and any tips you may have. Other runners, like me, will appreciate it. 🙂

Have an awesome Tuesday and if you have any tips you’d like to share, please leave me a comment!
