On training and racing in 2019 and 2020

Once I knew I had 9+1 taken care of in the event I want to do this crazy thing again, I decided to dial back on racing in 2019. I actually have nothing on the books besides a 18 mile training run in September and the marathon itself. 2020 is another story: I’ve opted for […]


Recovery week

Mostly recovery from Pride, the 18+ miles really were fine. My feet were oh so sore on Monday from the March though. Before I get into the wrap, who else lost their Sunday morning/early afternoon to the World Cup? I love this team! Random notes: A nice find: although I didn’t spot myself in CheerEverywhere’s […]


Training begins and racecation news

First international racecation is booked! I’ve been vaguely aware of Zooma from MCM Mama Runs and Wendy (? I think) when she posted about Great Lakes, but when MCM & Marcia posted about Bermuda, it went from vaguely aware to ooh! Bermuda is one of those places I’ve always thought about going but never acted […]


Running, social media and Father’s Day

Yes, this is inspired by #BraveLikeGabe, but before I get to the serious stuff…   Although it may seem that Liz and my’s favorite sport is running, we actually have a far more amusing and cerebral habit: Englishing. AKA trying to make heads or tails of the differences in our language. This goes back probably […]


Planning, shopping, running

So I was pretty sure I knew what I was going to do as far as group training for the fall. And then the details came out with an 11:00 top. Nope. I was actually feeling kind of weird about Mile High training anyway as I haven’t really done the classes in a long time […]


Tuesday Topics: #NewportFiesta5K

it was a fiesta indeed! Joining Zenaida and Kim for Tuesday Topics to determine whether riding a unicorn leads to PRs Earlier this year, NYRR announced their first race in New Jersey, likely in answer to NYC Runs taking over the Newport Half. I was on the fence about doing this race as it was […]


Running achievements

  I logged into the new NYRR site to check on something and was welcomed with the above. WOW. 25 NYRR races in two and a bit years of running. 170 NYRR race miles. To say I didn’t see this when I first set the treadmill to 4.0 is an understatement. So glad I did, […]


A Quieter Week

I love it when friends are in town. I adore them and we got up to good mischief. But I am so glad for a return to my routine. I am such a creature of habit. Speaking of habits, I finally broke down and ordered an iPod with blue tooth. The running without music experiment […]


Global Running Day Plans, Shoes Threedux

as I’ve mentioned, I love how much NYRR does to give back. I always try to get to Global Running Day events, but June is always a crap shoot work wise. I was glad this weekend when they announced a 7AM 5K that starts even closer to me than most Central Park runs. And there’s […]


#UnitedNYCHalf Recovery Week

I knew this was going to be a light week even without recovery from the half. We have our Global Summit/Annual Meeting and there’s just a lot going on. While I do chase steps in general, as Judy and I discussed on her post, I’ve learned through this injury cycle to take some true rest […]
