#MedalMonday, 2019 Publix A1A Half Marathon


I finished. I could still walk after. Atlantic ocean makes for the best race scenery. I pushed on through heat & humidity. I’m a happy camper…errr, runner. But, rewinding.

Tuesday Topics: Lebow 2.0 #MedalMonday


I have so many feelings about Sunday’s Fred Lebow Half Marathon. Linking up with Kim and Zenaida to share the good, the bad and the amusing about the race. [bctt tweet=”thoughts on my second time through @nyrr’s #FredLebowHalf” username=”travellingcari”] Because I picked up my hat so early, it was a disjointed “race day experience” and […]

Dancing into December


why am I dancing? PTO is in sight. I love what I do, but I am in dire need of a vacation and I can almost taste it. By the time this is published, I will be officially off work. Anyone else have massive issues with the WordPress “upgrade”? I had to enable the classic […]

TOTR: New Balance Bronx 10M Recap and Learning on the Run

Walking through MLB history and listening to my body, week of 7.23

#NYRRRetro and week of 7.8


Not a full running week, but the foot felt good and I really think my body is not meant to do regular back to back days.  Lungs, sure. Legs, no, not yet. I’m OK with that. I really do need to find another long run before August’s Manhattan 7 Miler although I think speed work […]

Celebrating the work of Front Runners and Achilles


a double race weekend, something I enjoyed but am in no particular hurry to repeat. This week’s recap/mileage is almost entirely the races as, as I suspected when I wasn’t taking photos last Saturday, I was coming down with something. I still managed to run a couple of days, but this was a much needed […]
