All I Needed Was A Long Weekend

Tyler says hi. At this time last week, I was a bit of a mess. I was Crohnsing hard, I couldn’t really eat and my night sweating had nothing to do with humidity. My fever climbed well into the 100-degree range and what was happening in the bathroom every five minutes was, well, disgusting. But […]

Overcoming My Night Running Fear

Just about every week, I get an email or Facebook message from Coach Cane or Mrs. Coach Cane. On Thursday nights, Coach Cane holds group runs with his City Coach team. The group is stocked with world-class triathletes who win stuff all the time. For an average-but-trying-to-get-faster runner such as myself, that’s a little intimidating. […]

The Lessons I Learned In 2011

It’s safe to say I learned more in the past 12 months than I did during any year in middle school, high school or college. Sorry, Mom and Dad. Sure, in high school I learned about parabolas and I read some great American novels and stuff, and in college I learned the most efficient way […]

I’m Ready To Taper

Hello! It’s been a while. You know what was awesome about the Thanksgiving break? Spending time with my family and not feeling the need to document every minute of my trip. I love blogging, but this weekend I also really loved not blogging. I kept plenty busy while I was in New Hampshire. I Turkey […]

A Very Thankful Thanksgiving

It’s Thankful Things Thursday and it also happens to be Thanksgiving. Look at that! I feel luckier than ever lately so excuse me while I gush, gobble and fawn over all the things I’m truly thankful for today. I’m thankful to be home. My flight up to Boston was so easy yesterday. Thank you, JetBlue, […]

Race to Deliver Recap

On Friday I declared that my goal for today’s 4-mile race was to run sub-8:15 miles the entire time. So I did that. And then I PR’d. I didn’t really have many expectations for the Race to Deliver, which was this morning in Central Park. Yesterday I did my last long training run gearing up […]

My Upcoming Race Goals

All I want to do in life is talk about running and make lists and goals. Yesterday on my way to get Remicade, I snagged a seat on the crosstown bus and started typing out my 2012 Resolutions. I’m pretty pumped about them. They’re good. I always thrive when I have a plan. I like […]

I Met Coach Cane’s Baby & I Went Running

I got a text yesterday at 4:50 pm from Molly at JackRabbit’s Union Square store alerting me that there was a special visitor at the store. I immediately grabbed my bag and ran out of the office. I’m sure my boss would understand. Yesterday I got to meet the amazing little Simon Dylan Cane. Simon, […]

Thankful Things Thursday: For The People Who Truly Get Me

Hello. It’s a gorgeous fall day here in NYC and despite having no hot water in my apartment for roughly the 19th day in a row, I am managing to pull myself into a good mood. In case you’re wondering if I survived a freezing-cold shower this morning (which you’re probably not, let’s be honest) […]

Marathon Training: What Worked For Me

I’m happy to dish out advice on plenty of things. In fact, I would like to write a book called How to Create the Perfect 16 Handles Concoction. (2 frozen yogurt flavors, heavy on the toppings, leave plenty of room in the cup for mixing.) I will also give you advice about how to find […]
