Tuesday Topics: MARATHONER!

the 2019 NYC Marathon is officially in the rear view and I DID IT. Linking up with Kim and Zenaida to discuss. Apologies in advance for the all caps and exclamation points, but you’ve all been there and totally understand it. Oh, and it’s ridiculously long. It’s impossible not to think of Fred Lebow while […]


NYC Marathon Week 2019

Remembering my experience with the strategy sessions, I opted to skip the Monday pavilion one and then proceeded to skip most of the rest of the events save for the Expo and one organized by my running group. Big rah rah events don’t work for me and I don’t do well with big groups. This […]


Running through fall

What a crazy couple of weeks. All is good on life & work front, but work is so busy and to be honest the last thing I want to do when I get home is sit at a computer. Linking up with Kim and Deborah for a double the fun Weekly Run Down Week of […]


September. Wow. Peak Month

120.38 miles run I ran an average of 1:37:25. Wow That took me from being seven miles ahead of 800 miles on the year pace at the end of August to sixty five ahead at the end of September.  65! I’ve run 651.06 miles on the year. I might hit 800 just after the marathon. […]


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 […]


September Coffee: Costs of Marathon Training

No, not those costs. Although I use Mint and could probably tell you what I’ve spent on this to 98% completion, save for the occasional non-tracked cash purchases of gels and the like. This post has taken forever to finish and it’s bounced from being Tuesday Topics to Runfessions to finally, Coffee with CoCo and […]
