More from: training

Planning, shopping, running

So I was pretty sure I knew what I was going to do as far as group training for the fall. And then the details came out with an 11:00 top. Nope. I was actually feeling kind of weird about Mile High training anyway as I haven’t really done the classes in a long time […]


Running and travel

So I think I’m back. But I runfess that there is almost no chance that I’m going to catch up. I’m trying though and if there’s a post you think I should see, please drop a link. In case you missed it, here’s where I was the last week. Since I booked this conference and […]


Running technology

Running is cheap. You just need to get out the door and go. Hahahaha. It’s a cliché we see everywhere. But before I get there, nod to why & how much I love the various link ups & the community here. Quickest ever crowd sourcing and I’m going back to modified Higdon. Thank you! As […]


#MedalMonday: Race Recap: NYC Half Marathon

I was surprisingly chill about this race. I think it was mostly because I knew I wasn’t going to be properly trained back in January and I decided this was going to be a fun run. Why not defer? Probably because a no pressure race appealed to me, and I wanted to enjoy it with […]


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. […]


from Fred Lebow to Penguins and Football

oh my! I runfess that I have not figured out how to blog from my phone, so this is a two-week Wrap since I spent the interim weekend driving with mom down to Florida. I had the best laid plans of crashing a post quickly on Monday, but I got home late and yeah, not […]


Planning through pain

It’s better to be ten miles undertrained than one mile overtrained This was twice-repeated at Monday’s NYRR event and it’s so true and so fitting for my training. I think my feet/knees are a reasonable alarm clock when I’m erring toward that one mile. While frustrating, this two week time has been educational too. What […]


January, Gyms and Fred Lebow

Winner winner chicken dinner: Run Like Duck winner is the wonderful Wendy! I emailed you via the address that showed. If you didn’t get it, DM me on twitter/IG with an email. Gyms and January are a hot topic. Blink is a place where the crowds don’t ebb and flow drastically, at least not the […]


Socks, Lights and bands oh my!

I am a fun socks person, so that’s a given from Santa (and the ish part of running-ish) so they were a nice complement to running socks, an Angelrox band and a SlapLit bracelet. I can’t be the only 80s child who adores these for nostalgia, can I? Coffee is kind of like a running […]


Wrapping up 2018

As has been the case with recent Monday runs, this week’s was powered by an episode of The Morning Shakeout. This week’s? Kara Goucher. I chose this episode from my backlog when I read Jessie’s post earlier this month about Goucher’s new book. The book has piqued my curiosity, but it’s not yet available for […]
