Running into Spring


Merging the Weekly Run Down and Tuesday Topics this week because I never quite got enough computer time last week or over the weekend to write a post. [bctt tweet=”If two linkups go walking, which one does the talking? ” username=”travellingcari”] Tuesday Topics with Kim and Zenaida: What are some new fitness gadgets you’d like […]

Review and a Race Recap: Matt Fitzgerald, Life is a Marathon


For this week’s Tuesday Topics, I’m linking up with Kim and Zenaida to share a race recap and book review. I was given a copy of this book to read via NetGalley. All opinions are my own. While Matt Fitzgerald is a name I’ve seen in perusing running titles, this is the first one of […]

#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 […]

Tuesday Topics: Running Wishlist


I’m history! No, I’m mythology! Nah, I don’t care what I am. I’m free-hee! ~Genie Celebrity** deaths don’t generally affect me too much. Usually by the end of the news cycle, their death has slipped my mind.  That wasn’t true for Robin Williams who has remained unique in that respect-and I suspect he may be […]

Tuesday Topics: Women’s Running Clothes


While I’m not the Marie Kondo fan some of you are, I do find some truths in her advice. One relevant to running is that I don’t feel good in clothes that don’t look good on me. I don’t give a hoot if I match or not, I like all the colors. Often in the […]

#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: Do Frozen Penguins Play Football?


if they do, I bet they’re better than I am. I love the pre-race football throw at the NYRR Super Bowl Sunday race but I am laughably bad at it. Tiny hands (not politics, a pure fact when you’re 5’2) and footballs don’t mix. [bctt tweet=”I want to play football with penguins. In the mean […]

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 […]

Tuesday Topics: Favorite Gifts


The prompt for this week’s edition of this wonderful new linkup is: “What were your favorite gifts you received over the holidays?” I already touched on that, so I’m shifting it slightly Linking up with Kim and Zenaida to share my favorite gifts that running has given me: Extending my comfort zone. I’m not going […]

Tuesday Topics: Run Like Duck


We know judging a book by its cover is bad.. but the title is OK, right? When Liz blogged about Run Like Duck, I was immediately intrigued. It just sounded like a fun book. Linking up with Kim and Zenaida to share whether the book was as good as it’s title was funny. Spoiler: it […]
