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. Keep Running

#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 Keep Running

Women Run the World, 2018 edition

I love the Mini! As I thought about a goal, I knew it was going to be a weird one. My 10K outdoor PR is from Rockland Lake, flat as a pancake on a beautiful November afternoon. On the other Keep Running

#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 Keep Running

10 Thoughts on Running and the #PopularBkHalf

Some thoughts as I digest Saturday’s race. Gameface posted the photos and no luck 🙁 It was so hard to spot the photographers in the rain, they’re not as brightly colored as Fort Lauderdale. If I get time I’ll have Keep Running

Don’t chase waterfalls, PRs are much more fun

don’t ask me why I have TLC’s Waterfalls in my head. I can’t remember the last time I heard it, and it isn’t on my playlists so who knows?! This is a two week recap due to travel but before Keep Running

#GoTheDist April 2018

August 2017 marked my first month with 500K steps. I missed a repeat last month by 700 steps :(. Yesterday morning I realized I was less than 14K steps away and decided it was going to happen. 14K is iffy Keep Running

Training, week of 4.23

Weird week, take two. I was feeling strong after last weekend’s escapades, but when I went to the gym Tuesday (planned off day Monday), my legs had nothing and my ankle was bizarrely sore. So after a mile warmup jog-there Keep Running

Training, week of 4.16

This was a weird week. Monday I went to the gym figuring I might have something in my legs despite going two days in a row since Saturday’s run was way below where it should have been. Nope. Couldn’t even Keep Running
