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 […]


Tuesday Topics: Run Like Duck

We know judging a book by its cover is bad.. but the title is OK, right? When Liz blogged about Run Like Duck, I was immediately intrigued. It just sounded like a fun book. Linking up with Kim and Zenaida to share whether the book was as good as it’s title was funny. Spoiler: it […]


Celebrating two years of running with a book giveaway

I’m weird. This is not news to those of you who know me. I can be one of those people who needs to start a book series at book 1, or I can be a total free spirit-often in the same sentence. My inner wild child came out on Tuesday when I decided to celebrate […]


Kicking off 2019 with Coffee

What better way to start the year? And for once, I actually remembered about the coffee linkup in time to write a post. My theme for the month? Some of the stories behind my mugs and how they tie in to my running journey. Over coffee I’d tell you that I have way too many […]


2018, you were amazing

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something. So that’s my wish for you, and […]
