sunscreen and bug spray


This was a wonderfully crazy week. Also a reminder that I need to stick with morning exercise as social life goes back to “normal”. But before I get to the run down, a little bit of a race recap that isn’t worth a standalone post Race Recap: Friday afternoon I had my appointment for bib […]

Race Recap: 2021 Women’s Mini


or as it was actually called this year, the Mastercard Mini 10K. As I mentioned, this is the fourth time I’ve run this race-making it my most-run race along with Frozen Penguin, with Gridiron and Ted Corbitt at three apiece, I think. If you told me this would have become my most-run, I’m not sure […]

Working from Home and Running


or maybe working from home and not being in pain and running… I realized earlier this week I was going to cross 70 miles. By far my highest total when not marathon training, and last July was “only” 84.79. July total was 76.48 miles. WHOA. Four months of working from home and I’m finally in […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Review: The Plant Based Runner


On Reading Yay, I can start a Weekly Run Down post with something other than PT, although I am still in and loving PT. This week I wanted to share my review of Jonathan Cairns’ The Plant Based Runner. Note: I received a copy of this book for review, but all opinions are my own. […]

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 […]
