Five Fun Facts with Farrah


  1. What is the most indispensable writing thing you own?

The Freedom productivity app. It allows me to shut myself off from social media (or the internet entirely) for a set amount of hours each day. I’m not sure I would have gotten through a single book in the last five years without it. 


  1. You can only have

  1. We all know you're really good at writing. What other skill do you wish you were really good at? 

Well, thank you for saying so. I’ve always wished I could learn to fence, not that that has much practical application today. Archery would be cool, too.


  1. You are a notorious Star Wars fan. A nebula is headed right for your space ship and only one can save you: Luke Skywalker? Han Solo?

I Kick Ass – July edition

It's been hot this month and I have been traveling. And have a slight injury (we're going with "slight" to be optimistic about its recovery) and I have not had the chance to do all I had wanted to do this month, but I am still going to acknowledge that I have done some great, long runs and am learning more all the time about technique, endurance and nutrition. But enough about me -

IKA (I Kick Ass!)

I am a little bit behind schedule at the moment, as I am deep in the deadline waters, but I have finally picked our latest IKA winner! Emma B! Emma had her son almost a year ago and set out to lose her baby weight. She made a plan for exercise and a deadline of his first birthday - then beat that deadline by 3 months! So congratulations to Emma, happy birthday to her son

Bring on the awesome!

Summer has certainly made her presence known with a vengeance in some parts of the country, hasn't she? But even with the heat, we try to persevere and Running for Burgers wants to celebrate that dedication and achievement. So send in everything you want to brag about this month so we can celebrate you and your accomplishments! One person will be selected as the I Kick Ass! person for June and will receive


It's so hot right now, it's important to hydrate properly, even if you're just out walking around.  That means keeping sodium and electrolytes in your body.  In other words, when it is this hot, water alone is not good enough.  I am a big fan of the Nuun tablets.  One tablet works for 20 oz, and they can be broken in half for smaller bottles.  It's sort of like Gatorade, but without all

The All Important Play List

When Moose and I go out for our runs, I have to have music.  Sometimes I need the beat, sometimes I need the company.  But I have a major complaint with the iPod Shuffle, which I wear clipped to my hat or neckline:  the "shuffle" sucks.  It's supposed to play randomly, but in spite of having three days of music stuff on that little one-inch square machine, I hear the same songs over

Running for Burgers: Off to a Great Start!

We are very pleased with the progress our little corner of the world has made in its inaugural month.  We will be giving away a little inspiration in the next few days.  Be sure and check in for more updates!  In the meantime, keep moving! This week's goal for me: Run 15 miles.  Practice Yoga Twice.  Do. Not. Buy. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups!

Wear Blue For the Fallen

Wear Blue for the Fallen was brought to my attention by Facebook friend Kim Myers.  On Memorial Day, the organization is asking all runners to wear blue to remember fallen soldiers.  You can pledge a certain number for miles to run for them, too.  Here is a link to the details. I am not running in a race, but I pledged to run five miles in blue for fallen
