Race Recap: 2021 Women’s Mini


or as it was actually called this year, the Mastercard Mini 10K. As I mentioned, this is the fourth time I’ve run this race-making it my most-run race along with Frozen Penguin, with Gridiron and Ted Corbitt at three apiece, I think. If you told me this would have become my most-run, I’m not sure […]

a sliver of good news


that has nothing to do with running, although running was pretty good this week too! Museums and cultural institutions can open in NYC starting on August 24. 25% occupancy. Timed ticketing required. Pre-set staggered entry. Face coverings enforced and controlled traffic flow. — Andrew Cuomo (@NYGovCuomo) August 14, 2020 I also don’t generally quote politicians […]

Training, week of 4.23


Weird week, take two. I was feeling strong after last weekend’s escapades, but when I went to the gym Tuesday (planned off day Monday), my legs had nothing and my ankle was bizarrely sore. So after a mile warmup jog-there was no running to speak of-I did a 5K row. Rowing has always been my […]

9.33 solo miles


Although I’m not officially tapering as I’m just using Cherry Blossom as a long run for Brooklyn, I wanted to get “one last long run” in and I knew it had to be this weekend since I’m home next. Brooklyn training has been weird, to be honest. I’m frustrated with the Runkeeper app and can’t […]

#GoTheDist February 2018 and Training week of 2.25


I wasn’t kidding when I said I didn’t think I’d hit 400K this month. It was looking like an impossibility and I only pulled it off on the last day of the month thanks to two insane days on Monday and Tuesday. February 405,707 steps 177.6 miles run/walked 50.54 miles run Year to Date 858,290 […]

Training, week of 1.7


I already talked about how I marked my one year running anniversary. How did I mark the first half of the week after my running anniversary? Injured. I actually don’t think it was Saturday’s 7.77 miles so much as the 1.3 mile warmup on Friday in bad shoes. Luckily, it doesn’t appear to be a […]

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 […]
