The Perfect Running Jam

in All Posts

Good morning.


Same old breakfast, different day.  Still tasty though.


Eggs, Soy Chorizo (from Trader Joe’s), tomatoes, and fried polenta.  Yum.  Oh, and a huge cup of the TJ’s Christmas blend coffee.



Run, Run, Run


Guess who is Women’s Running magazine’s new Blogger on the Run?  Meeeeee.  Check out the post, in which I answer burning questions like what type of my run is my favorite (hint: short and lazy ones) and what is my favorite race memory (hint: it involves almost being eaten by an alligator… kind of).  If you leave a comment on their post, you’ll be entered to win a free subscription to their magazine.


And additionally, Women’s Running is offering HTP readers a special discount on a year’s subscription to their magazine – $5 of.  That’s 10 issues for $14.95.  Wahoo!


Speaking of running, what is your current favorite running jam?  I’m really loving this Flux Pavilion song – “I Can’t Stop” – although I have to laugh because the one and only lyric is – you guessed it – “I can’t stop” over and over again. 

See?  Perfect running song.  I can’t stop…. I can’t stop… I can’t stop…

    Congratulations on the running feature! How is Pippa doing? She is gorgeous!!

    • Caitlin November 16, 2012, 9:30 am

      pretty good :) she’s fitting right in and sits on the couch with the dogs now.

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) November 16, 2012, 9:29 am

    Congrats on the feature! That’s awesome! Florence and the Machine get’s my legs going every time! When I hear them now…I HAVE to run!

  • Jayce November 16, 2012, 9:41 am

    Congrats! I like to run to “Bringing Sexy Back” lol.

    Totally unrelated: My 5-month-old almost rolled off his boppy newborn lounger this morning!! We only use it on the kitchen floor while cooking/eating. The last few days he’s been doing “crunches” trying to sit up, then this morning I barely caught him about to roll off. Be careful! Ugh, not ready for mobility.

    • Caitlin November 16, 2012, 9:48 am

      haha me neither.

      yeah we retired the boppy almost entirely a few weeks ago. sometimes i still use it to feed him a bottle but no longer can i just put him it in. henry is two seconds away from crawling.

    I’ll have to add that song to my running playlist. I ran at the gym on the treadmill yesterday and seriously had to keep myself from singing along to some of the songs like I do when I’m running outside. And refrain from the occasional dance move, lol!

    Congrats on the feature in Women’s Running! I don’t subscribe to that magazine, I’ll have to check it out.

  • Jenny @ For Your Consideration November 16, 2012, 9:54 am

    Congrats on becoming Women’s Running magazine’s newest blogger on the run! And thanks for the music rec. My iTunes needs some new jams. :-)

  • Carrie @ Fitness and Frozen Grapes November 16, 2012, 10:19 am

    Congrats on the Women’s Running magazine news! That’s awesome! I’m currently in the market for some new running tunes; my go-to playlist has a lot of Pitbull, Kayne West, and other hip-hop/rap songs, which is funny because I never listen to that genre except when I’m working out. :)

    • Sarah Anne November 16, 2012, 12:26 pm

      I’m totally with you on the hip hop/rap! Pit bull is the BEST for running/fitness. He just gets me moving. Also, unfortunately – Kes$ha.

      • Sharon November 16, 2012, 6:37 pm

        I am also a closet Ke$ha fan when it comes to running. Shhh…

  • Sarah @ Yogi in Action November 16, 2012, 10:20 am

    I will definitely be listening to that song on repeat today…to remind myself to not stop working so I don’t have to work the weekend! Very motivational.

    Congrats on the magazine!

  • KatieTX November 16, 2012, 10:23 am

    1. I love Pippa.

    2. I love that song. I play it in indoor cycle class and force my students to do sprint repeats.

  • Reenie November 16, 2012, 10:26 am

    Congrats on the article.

    … that is the cutest pic of the Pip!!! <3

  • Krisha November 16, 2012, 10:28 am

    You should probably download the real version of this song, who goan stop me by Jay Z

  • Samantha Angela November 16, 2012, 10:40 am

    Congrats on the magazine feature!

  • Katie @ Peace Love & Oats November 16, 2012, 11:05 am

    Congrats on being featured! I actually didn’t know there was a women’s running magazine, the only running magazine I know of is Runners World. Clearly I need to get out more!

  • Amanda K. November 16, 2012, 11:25 am

    congrats on the feature!
    i started running in high school and we weren’t allowed to listen to music while running. ever since then i’ve been a hardcore running purist — no music ever.

  • colleen November 16, 2012, 11:29 am

    Congrats on the feature! They clearly know a great blogger to have in their magazine.

  • Andrea November 16, 2012, 11:39 am

    I am such a nerd. That picture of Pippa just made me so happy!

    Congrats on the running gig!

  • Laura November 16, 2012, 12:41 pm

    I’m obsessed with Pippa!!!!!

  • Katie November 16, 2012, 12:45 pm

    That picture of Pippa is beautiful!

  • Katie D. November 16, 2012, 1:07 pm

    I love it when my cats do that “pose”!

  • Sam November 16, 2012, 1:11 pm

    I just keep playing The Hardest Ever over and over again at the moment. Nothing like hearing the words “You can go hard or you can go home” to give me a kick up the bum and get me moving faster!

  • Sharon November 16, 2012, 6:40 pm

    I still like to listen “Survival” by Muse when I run. And I’m so excited about the Women’s Running Magazine discount. I always pick it up in the store and have been putting off getting a subscription but wont now! Thanks!

  • Katie @ Talk Less, Say More November 16, 2012, 8:00 pm

    Yay! Congrats girl!

  • luv what you do November 16, 2012, 10:14 pm

    I love women’s running magazine! So fun that you got to be the blogger on the run. I love those posts!
