Physical Therapy: Week 2 and Half Marathon Recovery

One thing I forgot to touch on in either the weekly wrap or the race recap is how much I loved the A1A Half Marathon shirt. Last year’s was cute, but the cut was infuriating and I almost never wore it because I’m forever tugging at it. This year I switched it at the expo […]


#MedalMonday, 2019 Publix A1A Half Marathon

I finished. I could still walk after. Atlantic ocean makes for the best race scenery. I pushed on through heat & humidity. I’m a happy camper…errr, runner. But, rewinding. Tuesday Topics: Linking up with Kim and Zenaida to talk an oceanfront half marathon while they’re posting about cold weather running essentials. Also posting Medal Monday […]


Physical Therapy: Week 1

I made a rookie mistake when scheduling my 7/7:30 AM PT sessions. I’ve done early dentist appointments, I can do this, I thought. Crucial difference? At the dentist you don’t have to, really can’t, talk. At PT, you’re supposed to. Note to self: coffee before PT. I really like the staff in this PT center. […]


Physical Therapy: Week 0

Runfession: I’ve been much more worried about my Achilles than I’ve let on, especially when I started to feel some thickening. I made the decision that I’d go see a doctor after the Half, and that day finally came this past Monday. The reason for my concern? While it wasn’t getting worse, it also wasn’t […]


Tuesday Topics: Do Frozen Penguins Play Football?

if they do, I bet they’re better than I am. I love the pre-race football throw at the NYRR Super Bowl Sunday race but I am laughably bad at it. Tiny hands (not politics, a pure fact when you’re 5’2) and footballs don’t mix. Linking up with Kim and Zenaida to recap this weekend’s runs. […]


from Fred Lebow to Penguins and Football

oh my! I runfess that I have not figured out how to blog from my phone, so this is a two-week Wrap since I spent the interim weekend driving with mom down to Florida. I had the best laid plans of crashing a post quickly on Monday, but I got home late and yeah, not […]


Tuesday Topics: Lebow 2.0 #MedalMonday

I have so many feelings about Sunday’s Fred Lebow Half Marathon. Linking up with Kim and Zenaida to share the good, the bad and the amusing about the race. Because I picked up my hat so early, it was a disjointed “race day experience” and then I just repeated same picking up my shirt & […]


Planning through pain

It’s better to be ten miles undertrained than one mile overtrained This was twice-repeated at Monday’s NYRR event and it’s so true and so fitting for my training. I think my feet/knees are a reasonable alarm clock when I’m erring toward that one mile. While frustrating, this two week time has been educational too. What […]


Tuesday Topics: Favorite Gifts

The prompt for this week’s edition of this wonderful new linkup is: “What were your favorite gifts you received over the holidays?” I already touched on that, so I’m shifting it slightly Linking up with Kim and Zenaida to share my favorite gifts that running has given me: Extending my comfort zone. I’m not going […]


January, Gyms and Fred Lebow

Winner winner chicken dinner: Run Like Duck winner is the wonderful Wendy! I emailed you via the address that showed. If you didn’t get it, DM me on twitter/IG with an email. Gyms and January are a hot topic. Blink is a place where the crowds don’t ebb and flow drastically, at least not the […]
