More from: Run The Year

Thankful for running

I’m the worst about doing those gratitude posts on social media. I always feel like I’d leave out someone or something, or I’d start strong and peter off because I’ve never been a daily poster. And after I’d started this on Monday, I realized it was the Tuesday Topics. Fail on me. I know I’ve […]


This is 40

can I just whine for a second? I’m a big country fan and I had the perfect “anthem” when I turned 30. Tim McGraw’s My Next Thirty Years.  I think I’ll take a moment, celebrate my age The ending of an era and the turning of a page Now it’s time to focus in on where […]


Tuesday Topics: Rogue Running and group marathon training

My original plan for NYC Marathon training wasn’t group training, nor was it JackRabbit’s Rogue Running.  I realized early on that a DIY approach probably wasn’t going to work for me, and soon after that my Mile High Run Club idea wouldn’t either. Linking up with Kim and Zenaida this Tuesday Topics to talk about […]


Getting back to a routine, or trying

and a whole bunch of meandering thoughts on a weird week. I didn’t end up getting as much of the routine as I wanted due to a mid-late week battle with food poisoning, but I’m back on my feet now and easing back into things. I am not an I HATE WINTER person when it […]


Weekly (Not Much) Run Down: Recovery Edition

In case you missed it, my marathon length race recap. I’m still walking on air and part of me can’t believe the marathon is over. No, I’m not jumping into another one. I’m looking forward to properly training for Fort Lauderdale and Bermuda (and maybe Lebow, since I just can’t quit Fred).  I’m starting to […]


Tuesday Topics: MARATHONER!

the 2019 NYC Marathon is officially in the rear view and I DID IT. Linking up with Kim and Zenaida to discuss. Apologies in advance for the all caps and exclamation points, but you’ve all been there and totally understand it. Oh, and it’s ridiculously long. It’s impossible not to think of Fred Lebow while […]


NYC Marathon Week 2019

Remembering my experience with the strategy sessions, I opted to skip the Monday pavilion one and then proceeded to skip most of the rest of the events save for the Expo and one organized by my running group. Big rah rah events don’t work for me and I don’t do well with big groups. This […]


The amazing running community

All of you. Everyone I’ve met over the last nearly three years. Everyone I’ve run with since beginning training in June. There isn’t much substance to this weekly run down as I was somewhat down with a cold throughout the week. But I’m not dwelling on that – I want to focus on Saturday’s route […]


Runfessions: NYC Marathon edition

It’s that time of the month. Linking up with Marcia and everyone else for Runfessions: NYC Marathon edition. Like I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, I’m really enjoying marathon training. It’s for some of the same reasons Kim mentioned.  I have learned so much about what my body can do since I started running. But I […]


Running through fall

What a crazy couple of weeks. All is good on life & work front, but work is so busy and to be honest the last thing I want to do when I get home is sit at a computer. Linking up with Kim and Deborah for a double the fun Weekly Run Down Week of […]
