#ReadySweatGo to Vermont, Week of 8.6

I’m not original, #ReadySweatGo is a hashtag my gym has been using for their free personal trainer mini sessions. But like #NeverMissAMonday, it’s a good one. I was so looking forward to some cooler runs on vacation this week. This Keep Running

#GoTheDist July 2018

Where on earth did July go? A theme for the month was quality over quantity. Although I fell off pace on run mileage due to plantar fascitis flare and my first running fall, I had some really good workouts. I Keep Running

Super Sunday: 5K PR edition

so as I left the Weekly Wrap, I couldn’t decide whether I wanted to run or not. I actually did want to run, but was questioning whether two days completely off would be smarter for my knee’s healing. Despite changing Keep Running

#Queens10K

I love Flushing Meadows-Corona Park so despite the long haul out there, I was looking forward to running this race. It also happened to be “free” as I cashed in my New Balance rewards for a bib. Way more excited Keep Running

Women Run the World, 2018 edition

I love the Mini! As I thought about a goal, I knew it was going to be a weird one. My 10K outdoor PR is from Rockland Lake, flat as a pancake on a beautiful November afternoon. On the other Keep Running

#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
