More from: weekly run down

Starting September Off Right

Marathon training and the marathon is starting to feel real. Not frightening or anything, just real. I think the absolutely gorgeous fall weather contributed. As I mentioned, I’m really enjoying marathon training, but shared a few of the downsides over coffee. Just a quick recap as this was a busy week. Weekly run down with […]


Super busy, wonderful week

A wonderful week with friends, both running and non, as their summer & work travels brought them through the city. A whirlwind of many late nights, but wouldn’t trade it for a second. Linking up with Kim and Deborah for the Weekly Run Down: Never miss a Monday: two running weeks in a row, Kim, […]


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 […]


Training begins and racecation news

First international racecation is booked! I’ve been vaguely aware of Zooma from MCM Mama Runs and Wendy (? I think) when she posted about Great Lakes, but when MCM & Marcia posted about Bermuda, it went from vaguely aware to ooh! Bermuda is one of those places I’ve always thought about going but never acted […]


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 […]


Running and travel

So I think I’m back. But I runfess that there is almost no chance that I’m going to catch up. I’m trying though and if there’s a post you think I should see, please drop a link. In case you missed it, here’s where I was the last week. Since I booked this conference and […]


Running technology

Running is cheap. You just need to get out the door and go. Hahahaha. It’s a cliché we see everywhere. But before I get there, nod to why & how much I love the various link ups & the community here. Quickest ever crowd sourcing and I’m going back to modified Higdon. Thank you! As […]


Running achievements

  I logged into the new NYRR site to check on something and was welcomed with the above. WOW. 25 NYRR races in two and a bit years of running. 170 NYRR race miles. To say I didn’t see this when I first set the treadmill to 4.0 is an understatement. So glad I did, […]


Running into Spring

Merging the Weekly Run Down and Tuesday Topics this week because I never quite got enough computer time last week or over the weekend to write a post. Tuesday Topics with Kim and Zenaida: What are some new fitness gadgets you’d like to try? While I can be a gadget person, I don’t think there […]


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 […]
