An Amazing Opportunity and a Giveaway!!!

Since we are coming up on a new year, I figured I would focus on what a lot of other people focus on at the beginning of the year…Being healthier.  Many of you are starting out at the beginning and looking to improve your health and fitness.  Then, there are others who may be looking to try something new in the healthy eating and/or fitness department.

Therefore, I’m dedicating the month of January to learning more about clean eating and general fitness.  There will be several guest hosts posting during the month of January, and they all have their own specialties in the realms of fitness and health.  We will have The Clean Eating Geek, Allison Sipes, The Go Fit Gals, and more!

JillC

Our first guest host, on January 7, 2013, will be Jill Conyers.  Jill is a Beach Body Coach, Swiftwick, FitFluential, Sweat Pink and Girls Gone Sporty Ambassador that is passionate about running (from my point of view, Jill is a running guru), plant-based nutrition, fitness and an overall healthy lifestyle. She is also a wife and mother of 2 who is living a healthy life that is not about perfection. Instead, she finds that it’s about commitment, effort and progress!  Jill is also the pioneering force behind 12 in Twenty-Twelve, and she has teamed up with Jen the Marathon Mom to host 13 in Twenty-Thirteen, and she will be running her first 50 mile race this year!

Jill has a wealth of knowledge for those of you who are just starting to run or even just finding your way into the fitness and health world. She also can help those of you who are looking to improve your fitness and health “game” even further.  And guess what?  She is willing to answer questions you have about running, fitness, training, eating, etc!!  Please take advantage of this opportunity.  We can all learn something new that will help us achieve our fitness goals in 2013.  Jill will have a response to your questions in her guest post on January 7th!

    I’m a “somewhat” beginning runner. What can I do to get a faster pace? I seem to be stuck at a 12 min pace. Thank you

    I am trying to lose a little extra weight (~5 lbs) but tone up at the same time. Any advice as to a good routine (i.e. how many days of cardio/strength training) I can follow to reach this goal?

    I have done 3 half marathons up to this point using the run/walk method. I run between 4-8 minutes then walk 1 min. depending on where in the 13 miles I am and how good I am feeling. I want to boost the amount of running time. Now sidelined due to a torn miniscus. When I start trainng back up after my surgery what can I do to up my running portion? In addition to a couple halves I would like to get 1 marathon in next fall.

    Do you take supplements since you run long distances and lift weights? I lift weights 4-5 days a week and take supplements, but I want to start getting into running and run my first 5K in 2013. Will the supplements I’m taking (protein, bcaa) hinder my running?

    I’d love to hear her thoughts on the best way to build to a half marathon distance. I currently can run 3-4 miles without a problem, but I feel overwhelmed trying to increase that to 13.1!
