a funny thing happened on the way to goal


One of my 2021 goals: Start the year on pace for 900 miles. That was originally my hard goal for 2021, but as I mentioned, I have no idea what running will look like once we return to the office. Even if I’m ready to return to the gym to shower at that point, there’s […]

#RunnersRoundup: Four years of running


how on earth did that happen? January 6, 2017 was a cold and rainy day and I dreaded the idea of walking forever on the gym treadmill for steps. On a whim (and without a sports bra), I decided to speed up the pace a little. January 6, 2021 I set out for four miles, […]

Tuesday Topics: 2019 in Review and 2020 Plans


Yeah. This has been marinating for a bit. Between the injury that spanned 2019-2020 (some things never change) and the uncertainty around it, I wanted to wait until a place when I was more settled. Yep, running/training is a head game. Joining up with Kim and Zenaida to talk 2019/2020 in running. And in my […]

Review: The Plant Based Runner


On Reading Yay, I can start a Weekly Run Down post with something other than PT, although I am still in and loving PT. This week I wanted to share my review of Jonathan Cairns’ The Plant Based Runner. Note: I received a copy of this book for review, but all opinions are my own. […]

2019 Goals


  As has become custom, I’m writing up my 2019 goals before I’ve hit my 2018 totals. Prior Goals: 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013, subsequently revised As I mentioned somewhere, I’m simplifying them. Last year was way too crazy and ultimately frustrating. So building on what I started: Running Mark two years running in […]

FALLing into chaos, week of 10.14


  how many 80s children get that caption reference? 🙂 Guaranteed entry to NYC Half. Check Registration for Fred Lebow Half. Check In 2018 I ran three half marathons: Lebow, Fort Lauderdale and Brooklyn. In 2019, I’ll run three in the first three months, repeating two of 2018s. I think that’s a good start to […]

Training and Recovery, Week of 6.24 and #GoTheDist mid-year


You know those runs that are just absolute perfection in every way? That happened on Wednesday. This was an interesting week, running wise. The original plan earlier in June was to take this week off as I had a feeling I’d be slightly burned out from all of the June races. In some ways, being […]

Training, week of 3.26, 2018 Runs, and March #GoTheDist


March marked my fifth month in a row at running 50 or more miles, and my first ever crossing the 60 mile marker at 62.68. A lot of that had to do with one hell of a close to the month that started with last Saturday. The rest of the week: 5 miles in Central […]

One year running anniversary


Yep, today is a year to the day since this little whim started. And like was true in March, I truly ran away from I can’t. I knew I wanted to mark it somehow today, but wasn’t sure exactly. There was a since cancelled NYRR 10K that I thought about, but couldn’t commit to due […]

2017, you fabulous beast


It’s a wrap. December was a struggle, but that’s what a challenge should be. It’s the first time I’ve ever had to fight for 400K and it wasn’t in the bag until this ridiculously awesome workout. December: 408, 394 steps 9 days below goal (:( but not unexpected and better than December 2016’s 12) December […]
