#PopularBkHalf Recovery meets #ItalyRunNYC

Not so much physical recovery-I was good there pretty quickly, but mental recovery. In short, I needed (and got) a vacation. More on that later. As I thought about goals for the Italy Run, I looked back at my 5M Keep Running

Race Recap: Popular Brooklyn Half

Short version: PR by six minutes and change and I ran the entire thing! Major thank you to Caryn and Rachel who were most definitely my pre-race cheering squad and ears. Longer version: while I don’t mind running in the Keep Running

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

Training, week of 1.7

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 Keep Running
