Every week I have so many little things that I read in magazines, see on TV, or find online that I would love to add to a blog post. They never seem to mesh with what I’m trying to say that day, so I end up forgetting about them. And then along came the idea to do a random post called (DUN DUN DUN…) Weekly Running Dish. I’ll probably do these every Friday, with random factos, pictures, videos, and stories – ALL THINGS RUNNING. By the end of these posts, we will have talked about running so much it will feel like you’ve run 3 miles! Yay. Let the fun commence.

Nadya and her brood of ten thousand children were on the Today Show this morning. She talked about how hard it is to financially provide for the kids, but how loved they really are. How does a single mom deal with the stress of raising so many little kiddies? Running. She credits running and fitness to her sanity through all the tabloid controversy of her pregnancy with octuplets and stress at home. She says she runs 40 MILES EVERY WEEK. Whoa octobaby! Where does she get that energy to do this? I run 40 miles a week when I’m training for a marathon! That’s impressive. Watch her interview here.
Julianne Hough has good running form.
Kim K and Heidi Klum are running buddies.
Nothing makes me smile more than seeing this. I love Heidi Klum because of Project Runway and her sweet German accent, and I love all things Kardashian. I’m ashamed, I really am.
Pippa Middleton competed in 50 mile race
Remember that flawless dress that turned heads at the Royal Wedding in April? No, I’m not talking about Kate Middleton! I’m talking about her sister, Pippa! She doesn’t look so toned and in shape just because that’s a basic right of every royal hopeful. She works for her fitness! Dang skippy! She ran 20 miles and biked an additional 30 miles across Scotland in the Highland Cross race and finished in 5 hours, 7 minutes, 59 seconds. Not only is she stylish, but the girl can run! See official race results here. See more photos of her amazing runner’s legs here.
I’ve been around an 8 year old too much!!!
My little sister’s habits rub off on me. She gets me to watch iCarly and Victorious, these teeny bopper shows on Nickelodeon. One of the songs from the show is my latest running obsession. It’s called “Beggin’ On Your Knees” by Victoria Justice. It’s so funky and cute. Takes me back to junior high school. Ha ha ha
26.2 is 4 months away
This is extremely near. I’ve never been more up for the challenge than I am now. I’m so pumped by this! Right now, I’m currently at a long distance of 7 miles. I’ll take those 7 miles, and raise you 2. I hope to top that with a 9 mile treadmill run this weekend. It’s just too hot to do anything more than 5 miles outside! What are your run plans this weekend?
See how cool running is? A British royal, octomom, supermodel, Kardashian, and Ryan Seacrest’s girlfriend all do it! It’s not too late to join the party
Only a runner can understand the freedom one gets from logging a ton of miles.
