More from: training

Ted Corbitt 2019

Original post title: Trying not to run on caffeine and sugar. That was before this became a pointless weekly run down due to a wonderfully crazy work week. My office has our annual gala on Monday and I wear a lot of hats for that. On the plus side, I made relatively good decisions for […]


Tuesday Topics: Rogue Running and group marathon training

My original plan for NYC Marathon training wasn’t group training, nor was it JackRabbit’s Rogue Running.  I realized early on that a DIY approach probably wasn’t going to work for me, and soon after that my Mile High Run Club idea wouldn’t either. Linking up with Kim and Zenaida this Tuesday Topics to talk about […]


The amazing running community

All of you. Everyone I’ve met over the last nearly three years. Everyone I’ve run with since beginning training in June. There isn’t much substance to this weekly run down as I was somewhat down with a cold throughout the week. But I’m not dwelling on that – I want to focus on Saturday’s route […]


Runfessions: NYC Marathon edition

It’s that time of the month. Linking up with Marcia and everyone else for Runfessions: NYC Marathon edition. Like I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, I’m really enjoying marathon training. It’s for some of the same reasons Kim mentioned.  I have learned so much about what my body can do since I started running. But I […]


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 […]
