Physical Therapy: Week 2 and Half Marathon Recovery

One thing I forgot to touch on in either the weekly wrap or the race recap is how much I loved the A1A Half Marathon shirt. Last year’s was cute, but the cut was infuriating and I almost never wore it because I’m forever tugging at it. This year I switched it at the expo […]


Physical Therapy: Week 0

Runfession: I’ve been much more worried about my Achilles than I’ve let on, especially when I started to feel some thickening. I made the decision that I’d go see a doctor after the Half, and that day finally came this past Monday. The reason for my concern? While it wasn’t getting worse, it also wasn’t […]


Planning through pain

It’s better to be ten miles undertrained than one mile overtrained This was twice-repeated at Monday’s NYRR event and it’s so true and so fitting for my training. I think my feet/knees are a reasonable alarm clock when I’m erring toward that one mile. While frustrating, this two week time has been educational too. What […]


January, Gyms and Fred Lebow

Winner winner chicken dinner: Run Like Duck winner is the wonderful Wendy! I emailed you via the address that showed. If you didn’t get it, DM me on twitter/IG with an email. Gyms and January are a hot topic. Blink is a place where the crowds don’t ebb and flow drastically, at least not the […]


Celebrating two years of running with a book giveaway

I’m weird. This is not news to those of you who know me. I can be one of those people who needs to start a book series at book 1, or I can be a total free spirit-often in the same sentence. My inner wild child came out on Tuesday when I decided to celebrate […]


2018, you were amazing

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something. So that’s my wish for you, and […]


Socks, Lights and bands oh my!

I am a fun socks person, so that’s a given from Santa (and the ish part of running-ish) so they were a nice complement to running socks, an Angelrox band and a SlapLit bracelet. I can’t be the only 80s child who adores these for nostalgia, can I? Coffee is kind of like a running […]


Wrapping up 2018

As has been the case with recent Monday runs, this week’s was powered by an episode of The Morning Shakeout. This week’s? Kara Goucher. 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 […]


It’s better at the beach

  OK, that’s running vs. poolside lounging, but the principle applies. Florida is good for the soul all around. The reason I return to Fort Lauderdale each year is because it’s a place I can completely unwind and disconnect. The only decisions required are which book, beach or pool and within this last two years, […]


November, you’re a wrap

Right off the bat, I runfess that I’m going to declare blog amnesty. I want to, and I’m trying, but know I will never catch up on the last few weeks. Our gala is behind us and I can return to my normal. I also runfess that this is a Wrap in name only as […]
