Baltimore Running Festival Tips & Girls in STEM with Teza

It's been a whirlwind since Chicago so I'm still working on getting my expo and race recaps ready. For now check out some awesome other things going on around the interwebs! 

Check out my favorite Quick Workout Resources guest post on Nicole's blog, Fitful Focus. I share some of my favorite videos, youtube channels, websites, and DVDs I use to squeeze in a quick workout when I'm short on time.   

Attention all my Baltimore area runners racing in the Baltimore Running Festival this weekend!

Check out all these great race tips (including a few from yours truly) from this Baltimore Sun article which also includes an interactive marathon map.  I also did a guest post on BMOREtoned featuring my 5 tips for the Baltimore Running Festival half & full marathons-the post also includes an awesome running playlist from Jami.  

The Baltimore Running Festival included my 2nd ever half marathon in 2012 and first full marathon in 2013 which were both great experiences.

Good luck to everybody racing this weekend! 

As a lady with a degree in chemistry and job in the medical research field as well as soon to be woman in healthcare, I am a huge supporting girls in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math education).  We need more ladies who love math and science to contribute and do great things in this country and around the world. I was contacted by Teza Technologies to help spread their message related to this and wanted to help share their latest campaign: 

"Currently, there are currently 19 nations whose high school students are performing better in science than those within United States. Misha Malyshev, CEO of Teza Technologies works with nonprofits to curb that number. International Day of the Girl is a great time to celebrate the women in this field, and every field, and recognize the opportunities allowed to girls" 

While the world has come a long way, there are still gender inequalities and socialization differences. We need the young girls of today to grow into strong, powerful, and smart women who have access to every opporunity that is out there. I'm all for celebrating girl power. 


You can check out Teza on Facebook and Twitter to find out more about their work.

Are you racing this weekend? Any fun weekend plans?      


  1. I have never heard of that organization. Sounds like a good one. It's so important for women to be recognized as an equal. No plans this wkend for me. Just staying in and be cozy. It's supposed to be so cold and possible frost for the first time of the season.

    1. I agree! I love staying warm and cozy and watching Netflix on cold weekend days!
