Fitwall: The Numbers Game


Disclosure: This post is sponsored by FitFluential, LLC on behalf of FitWall Y’all know how much I dig my Polar, and I totally geek out over numbers and data when it comes to workouts and measuring progress (Except the scale. Scales are pointless in giving you any helpful body composition numbers). My first Fitwall workout was awesome, but because I rolled in right as class was starting, I didn’t get to sync up and get my personalized FIT Factor for the {Read More}

Fitwall: Fit in 40


Disclosure: This post is sponsored by FitFluential, LLC on behalf of FitWall Confession: I’ve been cheating on my gym. It’s been a little while since I picked a fight with a boy up a weight and I don’t even care. I’ve been all about this business lately: Each workout has a theme, but they are all about working the body as a whole rather than just pieces, so you’re burning more calories in less time while building strength, cardio, and {Read More}

Climbing Up the Wall


Disclosure: This post is sponsored by FitFluential, LLC on behalf of FitWall A while back I heard about this new (to me) company, FitWall. They had their mobile “wall” set up at our local running store for us to try out, so you know I had to give it a try. Oh, did I mention it was a super hero themed adventure run? Or maybe I just felt like Wonder Woman that day. Ha. It was pretty fun playing on {Read More}

Meet Me at the Barre!


In case you’ve lost track, we’re going on NINE months now of this tennis elbow nonsense. In my head I just keep thinking, I could have made a baby in the time it’s taking for this elbow to heal! (Dramatic, much?) Thankfully, no. There will be none of that baby talk from the womb. Ever. Again. I pray. For reals. Which has nothing to do with this post. Keep up. I have, however, been much more keen on trying different {Read More}

Road Runner Sports Girls Night Out

Beat the Boys

Every so often, our local Road Runner Sports has events in addition to their monthly adventure runs. Last night was their Girls Night Out, so you know I was all in. They know how to take care of the ladies, with the gents pouring the bubbly and a variety of cupcakes. I could seriously eat a full platter of the tiramisu cupcakes without thinking twice write an entire post about the cupcakes. As always, there were a number of raffles and {Read More}

Manitoba Harvest HempPro 70 {Review & Discount!}


Disclosure: As a SweatPink Ambassador, I was provided samples in exchange for my honest review. No other compensation was provided, and let’s face it, you can’t pay me to say nice things. That’s just not how I roll :).  I am a big lover of my protein.  Without fail, my mornings start with a good blend of protein and complex carbs to get the day going, and I have learned to always have a post workout shake with me otherwise I become the {Read More}

And Then It Was Fall


You can’t multi-task the present. No, no you cannot. Being in the present meant taking a break from the interwebs for the summer. Kinda like running, there were plenty of days weeks where I was convinced I didn’t want to this blogging thing anymore. Things were too hard, too busy, too much.  Recently, mini-me told me through some hard fought tears that it’s been a hard year. No joke, kiddo.  At one point, the mr. even told me he liked me better {Read More}

ProCakes Protein Pancakes {Review}


Disclaimer: I was sent a sample of ProCakes to review and provide my honest opinion. No other compensation was provided and if they were gross, I would tell you. It kinda feels like the days are getting kinda repetitive lately with lots of time spent at various doctor offices. I’m still going to therapy for my elbow on the reg and and since I’d had my boobie appointment last week, I figured I would change things up and get my {Read More}

Hulk Smash


If you follow me on Facebook, you may have caught something like this other morning… Maybe an overshare? Meh, I’ve always said I’m an open book, so whatevs. With the variety of injuries and bodily stuff I’ve had going on, I told Mr. Running It that I kinda feel like a car going through it’s 60k service. I’ve had X-rays on multiple body parts, had the usual blood work done, and just for kicks have had some tests done that {Read More}

Funky Town


No? Yeah, didn’t think so. I’ve been at a few blogger events recently and the same conversation happens every time: So you’re a blogger? Yes..{trail off with hesitation} And what’s your blog? Well, it’s called Melissa Running It, though I don’t really know what I’m running these days.  Yeah, my life these days. For a while, I thought I’d settled into my niche as a running blogger. 2014 started with some change as I added more strength training and didn’t sign up to run every race under the sun {Read More}
