Vermont and other mischief

July finished with 84.79 miles. 84! That is, by far, a personal best. And yes, that missing .21 miles bothers me just a little because round numbers. But only a little because I’m really proud of this mileage increase that, touch wood, has been without injury. On nutrition: as I mentioned on twitter, I finally […]


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 […]


Tuesday Topics: Running in a skirt

While I am a Skirt Sports ambassador, I had this post planned before the summer sale was announced. I guess that makes me a really good ambassador. LOL. Linking up with Zenaida and Kim to discuss my first ~ six months running in a skirt. If you had asked me a year ago whether I’d […]


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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


Tuesday Topics: #NewportFiesta5K

it was a fiesta indeed! Joining Zenaida and Kim for Tuesday Topics to determine whether riding a unicorn leads to PRs Earlier this year, NYRR announced their first race in New Jersey, likely in answer to NYC Runs taking over the Newport Half. I was on the fence about doing this race as it was […]


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 […]
