I went to the Fitness Magazine meet and tweet earlier this month and am working on writing a post for our blog about the event. We downloaded the photos from the drop box and wanted to mention the sponsors as well as the bloggers and link to their blogs. Their was a funny pic of the blogger standing next to you here trying the V8 smoothie. I remembered meeting her early on but can’t remember her name. Do you remember what her name is or what blog she writes for. I know it was a running blog out of Washington D.C.

thank you,

Hi Ashley — Hope you are doing well. I’m trying to find the post you made months ago about trimming down your cosmetic bag…can you send me the link? I’ve done a bit of searching on your site, but can’t seem to easily locate it.

I think this is the post you’re referencing Deb!

Hi Ashley! Can you share any of your triathlon swimming workouts? Or do you know any swimming blogs?

Thanks!! I love your blog!

I just read your tips for the Philly Marathon…great post with great info. Thanks! I’ve recently gotten back into the running world and have signed up for my first marathon (the Philadelphia Marathon). I am full of question and concerns, searching for guidance from anywhere and everyone. The one bit of advice I have been looking for recently is when to arrive at the start line/corral. With the gun going off at 7:00am, what time do you suggest showing up?

This may be a silly question but any input would be greatly appreciate. Thank you…

Hi Patrick! I believe that you really can’t get to a start early enough especially for stretching and bathrooms. Last year we were at the start about an hour in advance and this gave us plenty of time to stretch, do a warm up lap, get water, and use the bathroom. Just make sure you pack warm throwaway clothes!

I just read your post “Marathon Training and CrossFit” and found it really inspiring, thank you! I’m training for my first marathon (the Marine Corps Marathon in October), and I need to work on my overall strength; especially my core. I loved your outlook to CrossFit + Training, and I’m looking forward to implementing some of your suggestions. Thank you for sharing!

Any way you’d be interested in selling ur jcrew factory blooming petal necklace ?j crew sold me 7 bc it was perfect for my 7 bridesmaids for my wedding in sept, but only had 5 available to send to me and I bought another one on eBay but can’t find last one for life of me:( and so sad bc it is perfect bc my colors are coral and navy . thanks :) Meghan lauchnor

I really love the necklace but understand what you’re going through trying to find one. Could I loan it or do you want to give it as gifts?

Hi Ashley, I just found your website and I can’t thank you enough for sharing your experience. I truly enjoy reading your blog. Would you please let me know what training plan you recommend for first-time marathon training? There are so many plans out there and I love to hear your feedback. All the best :) Hoda

How are you?

I live in Geneva, and i would like to know if you have ever tried Crossfit (route de Lyon)?

Thank you!



ashleyd April 16, 2015 at 7:59 am

Hi Marcella! I haven’t been to Crossfit in Geneva but I do have friends who love it. It is run by Americans so very much like the Crossfit boxes in the US.
