My Go-To Gear I have no idea why it’s taken me so long to write about one of my favorite products. Many of you have noticed that I’m always wearing a running dress my race photos and post-run selfies. (Ok, on my 6’1″ frame it looks more like a tunic, but still….) The dresses are made […] Read More

Pilates with Gini

Long-Distance Pilates I stopped seeing a Pilates instructor who was 20 miles away and now I do Pilates with a trainer who’s 350 miles away. Wait, what?

What Would Betty Do Logo The Quest for a Good Sports Bra

On Sports Bras Gentlemen, this may be your cue to leave. Or not. Whatever suits your fancy. Back in the day, long long ago, Moving Comfort made a really great sports bra.
