Winter Running: #TedCorbitt15K Chapter

I DID IT! The middle facial expression cracks me off because I look like I was miserable, but I had so much fun. And yes, I take responsibility for the snow. I got a text Friday night that they’d make the decision about the race at 6 AM and like Poland Spring, I was half… Read More »

Turtles Love the Rain #PolandSpringKickOff

well love might be the wrong word. I didn’t sleep a lick last night worrying about whether I was prepared if the race went on, and whether the race would. With no text message when I woke, I checked FB to see all systems go and I… hit snooze. With the rain I knew I… Read More »

Transformation Tuesday: 6.2 on 7/4

I’d hoped to do the Firecracker 10K, but registration logistics didn’t work out and I still needed to earn this US Road Running I Run for Bling medal** that came in the mail earlier this week. It was gorgeous and I knew how to get roughly 6.2 out of Central Park, so off I went. About… Read More »
