More from: Run The Year

Tuesday Topics: Hannaford Half Marathon

Linking up with Zenaida and Chicago Marathoner! Kim to talk about Sunday’s Hannaford Half Marathon. I’ll do a double up Weekly Run Down next Sunday as I haven’t even started it. Recognize the shirt? No, not the race shirt, which was also pretty awesome. My finish shirt. Yep, that’s the shirt from my first ever […]


November 3 is feeling real

with the calendar on the cusp of October, although the temperatures don’t feel it, November 3 is feeling real for the first time. The marathon is five weeks from today. Five weeks from right now I’ll probably be somewhere in Brooklyn. EEK. My left leg hates me. It’s almost comical. This is the leg that […]


Quick Run Down, week of 9.16

Well this might refer to Wednesday’s speed workout, but really is a reflection of a banana crackers crazy week at work. All good/great, just a lack of time for reading & writing. I am reading Meb’s 26 Marathons though, and he speaks the truth: You don’t need to race to set personal records. Maybe this […]


Tuesday Topics: Marathon Milestones

I’m pretty sure I’ve never recapped a non race. But I have to say, even 36 hours later as I start this – twenty miles didn’t feel like just any other run. Linking up with Kim and Zenaida to talk about the milestones this race represented for Tuesday Topics. While this run was far from […]


Honor 9/11

I’ve seen the article that floated around about whether running is a selfish past time. I don’t buy it – at least not any more than any solo activity. We do what makes us happy, and if we’re able to, we give back. But this week? There’s something bigger than all of us. Where were […]


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 […]


Powerful Podcasts and Love Thyself

It wasn’t love at first sight Some of our initial encounters Were awkward An up and down friendship But you grew on me Then one day I realised I was in love with you I love running We have the odd bad day But I can’t resist I always come back I want to grow […]


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 […]


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 […]
