More from: Run The Year

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 […]


#MedalMonday: Race Recap: NYC Half Marathon

I was surprisingly chill about this race. I think it was mostly because I knew I wasn’t going to be properly trained back in January and I decided this was going to be a fun run. Why not defer? Probably because a no pressure race appealed to me, and I wanted to enjoy it with […]


NYC Half Marathon: Race Week

A wardrobe miracle happened this week (no, not that I matched, although that did happen too!) I found a pair of pants that fit at the ankle. Of course they were actually meant to be capris, but that’s the story of my life. These kept me warm enough on a chilly day that I hope […]


Marching into March with Coffee

I cannot figure out where 2019 is going. Joining Coco and Deborah to see if we can figure it out over coffee. If we were having coffee I’d tell you I’ve had way too much lately. Between the cold (almost 100% better, but you know how they linger), early PT and general busy-ness, I’ve reverted […]


Tuesday Topics: Women’s Running Clothes

While I’m not the Marie Kondo fan some of you are, I do find some truths in her advice. One relevant to running is that I don’t feel good in clothes that don’t look good on me. I don’t give a hoot if I match or not, I like all the colors. Often in the […]


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 […]
