Review: Scott Jurek’s North

Amazon tells me I bought Scott & Jenny Jurek’s North on July 3, 2018, shortly after I finished Eat & Run. Oops, didn’t mean to wait this long to read it. Linking up with Kim and Zenaida for Tuesday Topics to discuss this book. Let’s start with the ways I am not and will never […]


On training and racing in 2019 and 2020

Once I knew I had 9+1 taken care of in the event I want to do this crazy thing again, I decided to dial back on racing in 2019. I actually have nothing on the books besides a 18 mile training run in September and the marathon itself. 2020 is another story: I’ve opted for […]


Recovery week

Mostly recovery from Pride, the 18+ miles really were fine. My feet were oh so sore on Monday from the March though. Before I get into the wrap, who else lost their Sunday morning/early afternoon to the World Cup? I love this team! Random notes: A nice find: although I didn’t spot myself in CheerEverywhere’s […]


Pride!

What a wonderful whirlwind of a week. The city has been a rainbow of color, from Roosevelt Island to the main branch of the New York Public library and beyond. It also meant a super busy week of events culminating in a Guinness Book of World Records entry and Sunday’s Pride March. Mini Race Recap […]


Running, social media and Father’s Day

Yes, this is inspired by #BraveLikeGabe, but before I get to the serious stuff…   Although it may seem that Liz and my’s favorite sport is running, we actually have a far more amusing and cerebral habit: Englishing. AKA trying to make heads or tails of the differences in our language. This goes back probably […]


Tuesday Topics: Women Run, 2019

Oh pink! I was actually planning to wear a different top this year, but it didn’t work with the skirt and for some bizarre reason I cared about matching. Linking up with Kim and Zenaida to recap the 2019 Women’s Mini 10K. I knew a course PR wasn’t in the cards, but wanted to get […]


Planning, shopping, running

So I was pretty sure I knew what I was going to do as far as group training for the fall. And then the details came out with an 11:00 top. Nope. I was actually feeling kind of weird about Mile High training anyway as I haven’t really done the classes in a long time […]


A Quieter Week

I love it when friends are in town. I adore them and we got up to good mischief. But I am so glad for a return to my routine. I am such a creature of habit. Speaking of habits, I finally broke down and ordered an iPod with blue tooth. The running without music experiment […]


Review and a Race Recap: Matt Fitzgerald, Life is a Marathon

For this week’s Tuesday Topics, I’m linking up with Kim and Zenaida to share a race recap and book review. I was given a copy of this book to read via NetGalley. All opinions are my own. While Matt Fitzgerald is a name I’ve seen in perusing running titles, this is the first one of […]


Global Running Day Plans, Shoes Threedux

as I’ve mentioned, I love how much NYRR does to give back. I always try to get to Global Running Day events, but June is always a crap shoot work wise. I was glad this weekend when they announced a 7AM 5K that starts even closer to me than most Central Park runs. And there’s […]
