My 2015 Running Year in Review

As Christmas is upon us and it’s just a week until the clock strikes on 2016, I’m sharing my 2015 running year in review. I debated whether to do this, since earlier this month was my first blog-iversary and I recapped a few highlights then. But since Renaissance Runner Girl started off as a running and gluten free recipe blog, and I still focus a lot on running (with more lifestyle posts now than then) I figured it was only fair to give running a dedicated post!

Monthly Recap: June Edition

It’s hard to believe, but another month has come to an end and we are officially halfway through 2015! June hasn’t been as eventful for me as May. I’ve been occupied with things that are rather mundane but are pointing toward much loftier ends come July and beyond.

Oakley Mini 10K Race Recap + Weekend Updates

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope your weekends were awesome. Mine kicked off Saturday morning, so I’ll start with my Oakley Mini 10K Race Recap and fill you in on the bits and bobs afterwards. The Oakley is an all-women’s race and was actually the first such race in the nation when it was first run in 1972. 

Friday evening, I made a delicious gluten-free return to Pizza Beach with my friend Abby, where I feasted on a shaved asparagus, Parmesan, and feta pizza with squash ribbons on the side to fuel up for Saturday morning. We left feeling quite satisfied, but of course I had to end with ice cream for it to truly feel like the perfect dinner.
