Staying Fit In The Winter


While we ladies of Do Epic Runs are fortunate enough to live in Southern California (also known as perpetually 72 degrees and sunny), we realize that most of you are dealing with freezing temperatures, snow, ice and polar vortex craziness. When it is cold and dreary and awful outside, it’s easy to justify skipping the gym and staying snuggled up by the fire.…


Getting Out of a Slump


Slumps are the absolute worst. One minute, we are rocking along, hitting our goals and carpe-ing the diem, and then in what seems like the next minute, we are spending our evenings watching bad reality television and eating peanut butter straight out of the jar (or is that just me?).…


Obsession of the Week: Chocolate Covered Katie

Hi there Epic Runners! We decided it would be fun to share with you what we are obsessing about each week. It could be a blog, a recipe, a training plan…. whatever it is that we are currently¬†swooning over. And for our inaugural obsession of the week?…


Run It Out (Songs from Deanna’s Running Playlist)

Every time someone looks at my running playlist they give me a weird look. And I don’t blame them. That sh*t is RANDOM. My musical tastes resemble those of a squirrel with attention deficit disorder, and when I’m running, I like to get a little bit of everything in there.…


Top 7 Race Costumes You Will See At Every Event

We at DoEpicRuns are 100% pro costume. We dress up at just about every race we attend. And we totally get that it can be hard to come up with original ideas for costumes (although we were pretty proud of the time we Rick-Rolled the Awesome 80’s Run) – there are only so many things to dress up as, and some are more popular than others.…


Race Review: Hot Chocolate Run

On March 24, 2013 the ladies of participated in the Hot Chocolate Run 15k (also known as America’s Sweetest Race!) in San Diego, CA. As you are well aware, we never turn down the opportunity for free food (…or food of any sort, for that matter), so we were particularly stoked for this event.…

Race Review: Malibu Spartan Sprint


This past Sunday, Erin and I ran our 4th Spartan Race, the Malibu Spartan Sprint. The Malibu Spartan Sprint was actually the first race I ever ran back in 2011, so I have a soft spot in my heart for it.…


My First Marathon Experience: Deanna

Well, it’s official – I ran my first marathon. That’s a sentence I never anticipated being able to say. Me? A Marathon? Never. 5 years ago, it didn’t seem¬†like something I could ever do. Frankly, it wasn’t even something that I wanted to do.…


The Walking Dead Workout

THE DAY WE HAVE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR IS HERE!! In just a few short hours, Season 4 of The Walking Dead will premiere on AMC. In case you hadn’t noticed, we here at Do Epic Runs are ob-freaking-sessed with zombies, and there is no better depiction of the zombie apocalypse than TWD.…


Finding Time To Run

The past few months in the epic life of Deanna have been hectic, to say the least. My new promotion has had me on the road pretty much constantly – since July, I have been to Vegas three times, Arizona twice, Hawaii, San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara (in fact, I’m writing this from a hotel room).…
