Workouts, Week of 11.20


This week shook out almost but not exactly as I planned. Story of our lives, no? Tuesday – High 45 at Mile High Run Club. As I was walking in I saw this wonderful sign. I’m really trying not to overbuy this holiday season, choosing experiences and things of a true value/need. Another three pack […]

Saturday Six


I was out of the city this weekend for mom’s birthday and was looking forward to a long run. I knew I didn’t want to do endless laps on the course near mom and so when the morning dawned absolutely gorgeous I negotiated the car and headed for Rockland Lake State Park, a place I’ve […]

Turtles Love the Rain #PolandSpringKickOff

Sunday Funday Rebound Runday

Transformation Tuesday: 6.2 on 7/4


I’d hoped to do the Firecracker 10K, but registration logistics didn’t work out and I still needed to earn this US Road RunningĀ I Run for Bling medal** that came in the mail earlier this week. It was gorgeous and I knew how to get roughly 6.2 out of Central Park, so off I went. About […]
