This weekend we are holding the Sisterhood Virtual 5K, along with EA Sports Active! Woot! How has your training been going? Are you planning on trying to run all of it or stick to a run/walk combination? My Team Bismarck 5K is going to be held on Saturday and while I didn’t train this time around … [Read more…]

So how goes the EA Sports Active 5K training? Are you training? You are training, right? Because the run is in 10 days. Of course you’re training, and you’re totally ready to go!! Are you sitting there staring at your screen in disbelief, having not a clue as to what I’m speaking of? Well, go read … [Read more…]

Now isn’t that a mouthful!!? November marks the one-year anniversary of The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans. ONE YEAR! In the past year, we’ve had 6 weight loss challenges, several fitness challenges, and mini-challenges galore. We have members who’ve been with us from day 1, and we’ve been joined … [Read more…]

Here we are, at the start of flu season. And wouldn’t you know it, I’ve already gone and gotten sick. Yup, I’m in the middle of my first ever round of Tamiflu.  I still feel pretty awful – so I’m glad I got the Tamiflu. Not sure what shape I’d be in without it. The last day I ran was on Sunday. … [Read more…]

Since we tend to plan ahead here at the Sisterhood, I knew we were going to start a running challenge early in September. This gave me the opportunity to  ask for a few key items for my birthday! An iPod Nano (5th Generation) and Nike+ iPod Sport Kit. Nike+ iPod Sport Kit ($29.99) is a sensor that … [Read more…]

I hate shoes. More accurately, I hate shoe shopping. My feet are big.  They are an odd size that isn’t normally carried on store shelves. I also have very narrow heels. When I started taking up running (which was actually several years ago…this is just the latest incarnation), I knew that I needed … [Read more…]

I am reposting this from earlier in the year! I know there are a lot of you who are doing the Couch-to-5K program or who have previously done it, and we would love to hear from you!! If you are anything like me, then you try running for a few minutes, huff and puff, can’t catch your breath, and slow … [Read more…]

I asked Beckie from BornFit if she would consider doing a guest post for us and lucky for us, she agreed! Here is what she has to say: Before my husband and I had children we hiked just about every weekend. Since the children came along we have sort of left our hiking adventures behind. Until … [Read more…]

Well, maybe he isn’t exactly a BABY, but I will forever call the twins “my babies” and I think secretly they like it, despite the outwardly protests. Awhile back, I wrote about participating in races to benefit charities. This past weekend, I signed up to do a 5K for Sherry’s Wishes, a local … [Read more…]

I know we have tons of runners in the Sisterhood, and even more wanna-be runners (like myself!), and we are all capable of walking. There is no better motivation than participating in an event for a good cause! Everywhere you look, you can find 5Ks, 10Ks, half marathons, and even marathons and they … [Read more…]

As some of you know, I have dreams of becoming a runner. Only I don’t run. I haven’t even tried since last summer. At that point, I could go for a few minutes, then walk for several, and then jog a few more minutes… catch my drift? This morning I did not go to the gym because I need to be getting … [Read more…]

Straight off the treadmill and I just had to share the fact that I ran even though I wasn’t being chased. In the past I figured why run if I didn’t have to? Well times are a changing. Yesterday Melissa posted the couch to 5k program for our Fitness Fridays and it was just the push I needed. Our … [Read more…]

New to running? Read more on how-to get started here! If you are anything like me, then you try running for a few minutes, huff and puff, can’t catch your breath, and slow to a walk. That’s my story. I have big dreams of being a runner, if only I could run longer than three minutes at a … [Read more…]
