I’m still struggling with updates, I don’t want to miss anything but I’m so busy with this summer! This increase in activity happened last year, but I was also accomplishing a lot more as it came to running. Right now it feels like I’m stuck in a uneventful slog of toasty mileage and spinning my … More Humid, Hilly and Hot!
I’m still having trouble updating this, I’m so busy getting back to training which eats up my personal time, and I’ve gotten a LOT of work dumped on my desk. There just doesn’t appear to be enough time in the day anymore! I have very, very bad luck. Heading out to our campsite for the … More Cold and Beautiful!
Well! It’s been a while hasn’t it? I can tell I haven’t been getting much activity lately, and since I’ve been zooming around it’s been tough to make myself sit down and write anything. Since Boston I’ve been keeping my running more low key. I started back running almost immediately, running that 10k after the … More An Odd Break
WOW! JUST WOW! What a race! I loved it! nbc sports stream of my finish I was jittery all weekend, thinking I would forget how to run, or that I broke something every time I moved. Dr. Bonnie kept me focused on various other activities, and we walked around Boston a lot (I live on the … More Run, Run, Run!
I made it back in one piece! I also pet a kangaroo! I spent the weekend working in Nashville. It was a nice visit overall, nerve wracking flights.

So this run was a little bit different. First, it was utterly POURING out. Second, I wanted to practice my Marathon Pace a little bit. Third, it was my first shorter run since my last full long run. I started this knowing I was going to have a bit of a rough time with it. … More Practice, Practice, Practice!
I wanted to keep this one nice and easy. I knew psychologically this would set the tone for the rest of my taper. Would I be freaked out and anxious all taper? Or would I confidently stride through it? If you know me you know which one is MUCH more likely, but I tried my … More One Last Run!
I did not see that coming at all. Friday it was a bright and warm 55°F-ish degrees out. Saturday it started to drop below 40°F for most of the day. I had to get to my pub crawl, so I stuck to my indoor schedule. I also was worried because the way the season is going … More Crazy New England Weather
Last week I was considerably stressed out for a multitude of reasons. Friday in particular I was thinking of how sick I had been the week before, how poorly I was eating on travel, and general anxiety. It was a recipe for another disastrous run. I am beyond lucky, just as I was settling in … More The Wheels Come Off
I was hoping that by the time my long run came around I’d be a lot more healthy! Sadly, my condition only degraded Thursday-Monday. I searched all over to figure out if I should just grin and bear it (my usual course) or if I should call it quits. I came to the conclusion that … More Down for the Count!
