September. Wow. Peak Month

120.38 miles run I ran an average of 1:37:25. Wow That took me from being seven miles ahead of 800 miles on the year pace at the end of August to sixty five ahead at the end of September.  65! I’ve run 651.06 miles on the year. I might hit 800 just after the marathon. […]


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 […]


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 […]

I chose this episode from my backlog when I read Jessie’s post earlier this month about Goucher’s new book. The book has piqued my curiosity, but it’s not yet available for […]


Dancing into December

why am I dancing? PTO is in sight. I love what I do, but I am in dire need of a vacation and I can almost taste it. By the time this is published, I will be officially off work. Anyone else have massive issues with the WordPress “upgrade”? I had to enable the classic […]


Thankful for Running

if I were an organized blogger this would have been done on time for Thanksgiving and/or my birthday, but I am not. I’m somewhat hooked on The Morning Shakeout podcast and as I was grinding out Friday’s miles, I listened to the Bart Yasso interview from earlier in November. What an inspiration. Among the comments […]
