Tuesday Topics: Marathon Milestones

I’m pretty sure I’ve never recapped a non race. But I have to say, even 36 hours later as I start this – twenty miles didn’t feel like just any other run. Linking up with Kim and Zenaida to talk about the milestones this race represented for Tuesday Topics. While this run was far from […]


Honor 9/11

I’ve seen the article that floated around about whether running is a selfish past time. I don’t buy it – at least not any more than any solo activity. We do what makes us happy, and if we’re able to, we give back. But this week? There’s something bigger than all of us. Where were […]


Starting September Off Right

Marathon training and the marathon is starting to feel real. Not frightening or anything, just real. I think the absolutely gorgeous fall weather contributed. As I mentioned, I’m really enjoying marathon training, but shared a few of the downsides over coffee. Just a quick recap as this was a busy week. Weekly run down with […]


Powerful Podcasts and Love Thyself

It wasn’t love at first sight Some of our initial encounters Were awkward An up and down friendship But you grew on me Then one day I realised I was in love with you I love running We have the odd bad day But I can’t resist I always come back I want to grow […]


Super busy, wonderful week

A wonderful week with friends, both running and non, as their summer & work travels brought them through the city. A whirlwind of many late nights, but wouldn’t trade it for a second. Linking up with Kim and Deborah for the Weekly Run Down: Never miss a Monday: two running weeks in a row, Kim, […]


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 […]
