5 Podcasts to Listen to While Running

by Mindy @ Just A One Girl Revolution on July 25, 2017

in Pop Culture and Entertainment

For years, I listened only to music while I was working out. I curated some killer running playlists. I can crush a finely tuned balance of driving rock beats and energizing pop ear candy. I’ve listened to podcasts in my day-to-day life for a couple years now. However, it’s only in the last six months […]


Nashville Changed My Mindset

by Mindy @ Just A One Girl Revolution on May 10, 2017

in Running and Training

Two years ago, I was crushing it as a runner. I worked really hard and it started to pay off, as I felt strong and fast. I almost added a fast (for me) disclaimer, but thought against it because I did feel fast. There is no sense in the comparison trap. I felt fast, end […]


I’m Not Marathon Training After All

by Mindy @ Just A One Girl Revolution on June 27, 2016

in Goals and Challenges

Long story short:  my 2016 marathon goals are no more. Earlier this year, I registered for the Grand Rapids Marathon. I was still very slowly getting back into running and, at the time, needed a goal to set my sights on. After my spring race plans fell apart at the seams, it was comforting to […]


race recap: Bayshore Marathon.

by Mindy @ Just A One Girl Revolution on May 26, 2015

in Running and Training

After having a marathon on my bucket list for several years, I finally crossed that glorious finish line! It was perhaps one of the hardest things I have ever experienced, I think second only to my weight loss journey. Grab some wine and settle in, because this might get lengthy. #sorrynotsorry Backing up to Friday! […]

Disclaimer:  this post is sponsored by Blue Diamond Almonds. Ahhhh!! It’s officially here:  MARATHON WEEK! Well, the first one of 2015. I’ll go through it all again later this year (for which I am super freaking pumped). With just days until 26.2, I wanted to share five things I’m really focusing on to prepare myself mentally […]


2015 workouts, week 19.

by Mindy @ Just A One Girl Revolution on May 13, 2015

in Last Week's Workouts

This week, my hip was feeling better than it had in quite a few weeks. Knowing that I had a 25k at the end of the week and the marathon is coming up incredibly fast, I was very intentional about taking things easy this week, in hopes of feeling close to 100% healthy again before […]


race recap: River Bank Run 25k.

by Mindy @ Just A One Girl Revolution on May 10, 2015

in Running and Training

Despite this being the fourth year I’ve run this particular race (and 7th time total for the River Bank Run – the 5k once and the 10k twice!), my anxiety was sky-high for most of the week. Between the hip issues plaguing me for the previous several weeks to the forecast (warm and rainy (read: humid!) […]

race recap: Eastgate 5k

by Mindy @ Just A One Girl Revolution on September 19, 2014

in Fitness

I wasn’t planning to write a race recap, but just include it into my next last week’s workouts post, but this race felt like such a turning point that I couldn’t help but reflect! This summer, I took a running hiatus while recovering from an injury. I made so much progress over the winter and […]


reading list, volume 37.

 Today: Blog Tour – My Writing Process via On Tap for Today because Elizabeth’s post really resonated with me and how I approach my blogging – minus the balance work/marriage/motherhood part, because I’ve really only got the work part going for me…and I am A-okay with that at this point in my life. But, I […]
