New Jersey Half Marathon Recap

I ran the New Jersey Half Marathon this weekend and it was great. At least, that’s how I feel about it 10 hours later. I’m all runner’s high-ed now (and exhausted and delirious and insatiably hungry), but the race was actually tough at times. Here’s a wordy rundown… I signed up for the New Jersey Half a few weeks […]

Stevens Cooperative School 5K Recap

Man, just as soon as I say I feel like a “lazy runner” and that I’m kind of meh about running and am just enjoying it and don’t feel a fire, I go and run a teeny tiny 5K and take it all back. To recap! I have exactly two friends in New Jersey. One is my […]

Cranford Cougar Dash 5K Recap

I said it last year, and I’ll say it again today: I love racing 5Ks. They’re short and fast and fun and the minute you’re ready to barf, you’re across the finish line — and at that point, it’s probably only like 9:30 AM. Granted, I didn’t quite race a 5K this morning. But I did […]

I Was A Guest On I’ll Have Another With Lindsey Hein!

Hello! How was your Thanksgiving? Important question: What’s your favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner? I like traditional bread stuffing with gravy on it. I also like buttered dinner rolls (smothered in gravy), and whatever’s for dessert (smothered in chocolate). This year I was a bit of a downer during the holiday. There were plenty of […]

New York City Marathon 2016 Recap

Yesterday was the best day ever. The past two and a half months have included many not-so-best days ever. So I just wanted a day. I wanted one day to run the New York City Marathon, because I knew that one day would have the power to overshadow all the dark days I’ve seen lately. […]

New York City Marathon Inspiration

The New York City Marathon is pure magic — and it’s just two weeks away! That means it’s officially time to start stalking the weather and watching inspirational videos ’round the clock, right? Everything about this race gives me happy chills, from the mile marker flags throughout the boroughs to the bleachers lining Central Park, leading […]

The Inaugural Brooklyn Mile Recap

On Sunday, I ran my first-ever mile race — the inaugural Brooklyn Mile! I was irrationally nervous about this race all week. Every time I would go on the race page, I would get a knot in my stomach — the kind of nerves usually reserved for dance competitions, marathons, or the daily 4 PM […]

NYRR Team Championships 2016 Recap

I ran the NYRR Team Championships race on Saturday. The short: It was very hot, it was very humid, and I did not run my best, most well-executed race. I feel meh about it. I’m not necessarily disappointed, but I do wish I’d had a stronger showing for my team. The long? Here’s the long. Last year, […]

Party With Purpose 5K Recap

I love racing! I love racing short distances! Before yesterday, I had only raced three 5Ks, each a year or more apart. (Turkey Trots FTW.) I know we all (maybe?) get hyped up on marathons and half-marathons and long, endurance-y races. But man, the 5K is so fun! A few months ago, my friend Emily […]

NYRR New York Mini 10K Recap

It feels trivial to write a recap about the 10K I ran this weekend when there are so many more important things in the world to focus on right now. My heart is broken for the people of Orlando and the LGBT community. These acts of violence — this one and the many, many, many […]
