Cleaning up my diet

Running wasn’t/isn’t about weight loss, but I’d still like to end the year down a few (more) pounds. I’ve come to realize that what I eat definitely drives how I feel on a run. I’ve been aware of this since last summer in the short term and know, for example, I can’t have salad for […]


Celebrating the work of Front Runners and Achilles

a double race weekend, something I enjoyed but am in no particular hurry to repeat. This week’s recap/mileage is almost entirely the races as, as I suspected when I wasn’t taking photos last Saturday, I was coming down with something. I still managed to run a couple of days, but this was a much needed […]


#Queens10K

I love Flushing Meadows-Corona Park so despite the long haul out there, I was looking forward to running this race. It also happened to be “free” as I cashed in my New Balance rewards for a bib. Way more excited about cutting back on race fees than I am about saving money on shoes.  I […]


Women Run the World, 2018 edition

Review: Scott Jurek’s Eat & Run and #20BooksOfSummer

I’ve succumbed to #20BooksOfSummer, more on that later, and the first is Scott Jurek’s Eat & Run which Liz posted to me after she read it. Is there any better kind of friend than the fellow bookworm? Never say never and all that, but there are two things in life I probably will never do: […]


#PopularBkHalf Recovery meets #ItalyRunNYC

Not so much physical recovery-I was good there pretty quickly, but mental recovery. In short, I needed (and got) a vacation. More on that later. As I thought about goals for the Italy Run, I looked back at my 5M NYRR times. I’ve only done two at the distance, despite loving it. The Retro, which […]


Review: Finders Keepers

was: #AAM2018, You’re on Sacred Land AKA the conference blog that was never finished ***. I think Craig Childs first crossed my radar during my New Mexico trip in 2015. I’ve certainly had House of Rain on my Kindle for some time and as I was sifting through a box of books I got from […]
