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 […]


Tuesday Topics: Hannaford Half Marathon

Linking up with Zenaida and Chicago Marathoner! Kim to talk about Sunday’s Hannaford Half Marathon. I’ll do a double up Weekly Run Down next Sunday as I haven’t even started it. Recognize the shirt? No, not the race shirt, which was also pretty awesome. My finish shirt. Yep, that’s the shirt from my first ever […]


November 3 is feeling real

with the calendar on the cusp of October, although the temperatures don’t feel it, November 3 is feeling real for the first time. The marathon is five weeks from today. Five weeks from right now I’ll probably be somewhere in Brooklyn. EEK. My left leg hates me. It’s almost comical. This is the leg that […]


Quick Run Down, week of 9.16

Well this might refer to Wednesday’s speed workout, but really is a reflection of a banana crackers crazy week at work. All good/great, just a lack of time for reading & writing. I am reading Meb’s 26 Marathons though, and he speaks the truth: You don’t need to race to set personal records. Maybe this […]


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 […]
