Running and Social Anxiety

If two bloggers meet and we forget to take a photo, did it really happen? Coco and I had a wonderful catch up over some delicious guacamole and chips on Wednesday evening. When she messaged me realizing we hadn’t taken a photo I said it just meant we needed to see one another again soon. […]


Race Recap: Zooma Bermuda

more to come on Bermuda overall in, hopefully, a #TravelTuesday post. In the mean time, my thoughts on an amazing racecation. First of all, major love and shout out to the entire Zooma and OnPace race teams. They and their partners put on a fabulous inaugural Bermuda race and I can’t wait to return to […]


PT Week 5: PT is Like Dieting

I’ve come to the realization that PT is like a diet. You may lose 5 lbs or have the sore muscle stop hurting, but there’s lots of long term adjustments. I don’t say that to knock PT. I love my PT, but one of the changes in PT as an adult is I realize it’s […]


2020 PT Week 3/4: Return to Racing

Previous post topics when I thought I’d get this posted sooner: I’m taking my talents to South Florida Yep, that made the rounds after the NFC/AFC Conference Championship Games with the Super Bowl in Miami. I can’t believe Lebron’s decision was ten years ago this summer. Where did the last ten years go? While it […]


PT 2020 Week 2: Runners are the Best People

subtitle prior to Saturday: making time for all the things, which is also true. A few weeks ago, Deborah mentioned that she’d be in New York and I had a bad feeling that I wouldn’t be — while Darlene and I almost always catch up when she’s here, I’ve missed blogger visits all too often […]


Tuesday Topics: 2019 in Review and 2020 Plans

Yeah. This has been marinating for a bit. Between the injury that spanned 2019-2020 (some things never change) and the uncertainty around it, I wanted to wait until a place when I was more settled. Yep, running/training is a head game. Joining up with Kim and Zenaida to talk 2019/2020 in running. And in my […]


PT 2020 Week 1: “I Like Hard”

This week marked my third running anniversary. With it falling on a weekday and my not running that day due to PT, I didn’t mark it in any special way. I will… just haven’t decided the form it will take. I’m the worst at doing things on the actual day anyway. I officially deferred Fort […]


Physical Therapy 2020: Week 0

I was working on a post to closeout 2019 and share my 2020 goals, when a wonderful thing happened. I realized I could run a little! Linking up with Deborah and Kim to share this week. Had an amazing weekend in the Rochester area with my college roommate and her kids. We share an obsession […]


Oh my right knee, you old frenemy

Not a Weekly Run Down, as there was a strong lack of running, but linking up with Deborah and Kim to talk about my knee diagnosis and some other 2019 odds and ends. Am I disappointed in the injury? I think frustrated is a better word. I ran 862.97 miles in 2019. Four half marathons […]


Runfessions of a sidelined runner

Today I’m linking up with Marcia at Marcia’s Healthy Slice for her monthly Runfessions linkup.  Be sure to check out her blog and those of the other great bloggers linking up. My primary topic? The first injury that has kept me from running. Yep, I ran through plantar fasciitis and achilles tendonosis. This knee pain […]
