re-integrating running into life, #20BooksOfSummer


that title sounds so dramatic, which it isn’t meant to be, but not sure how else to phrase it. As we move back toward normalcy, whatever that means, post covid-19, the weekend of May 15-16 was my first chance to look at how to integrate my covid running routine with “real life”. I knew that […]

FOMO drives races


or at least it does for this runner. Amid the 900 emails that NYRR sends, I saw and read the one for the Women’s Mini, which I have a love/hate relationship with: 2017: one of my first 10Ks 2018: thinking my way through why I love/hate 10Ks 2019: trying to game plan a better race […]

a sense of community


So glad so many were able to “join” me in the 9/11 Virtual 5K. In honor of the twentieth anniversary, the museum is remembering and celebrating the 9/12 spirit when the world came together.

three years


ETA: Commenting is back. Live post from this week is here. Grateful for the backup, but glad to be back here. running? No, that was four in January. Three years blogging with all of you after I “met” Coco in the comments of my Cherry Blossom 10M recap. Fitting because a theme of this post […]

Hope you’re able to have healthy & safe holidays in these weird but improving times. Despite saying I was only committed to Matty’s […]

a weird week


A good weird week, but still a weird one. Routine was a little upside down, but you roll with it. Also, I got excited about cooking something that wasn’t salmon, which never happens. OK, I should say making, not cooking, but utterly obsessed with Deborah’s dill pickle ranch dressing. It made my baby carrots way […]

well behaved women seldom make history


So many strong women on my mind this week. Friends, family, icons.  So much has been done, yet so much remains. I had such fun reading this Run to the Finish post as I wrap my head around how Apple Watch data differs from Garmin’s. I have the added layer of different because I never […]

Forward March


on the eve of a year of covid19, I think I’m the last person to post about virtual races. Between rehabbing the IT band last spring and a lack of interest, I didn’t really do many virtual races or the distance challenges, and I didn’t do the one I thought I would definitely do. That […]
