Scotland 10K Recap

This morning I ran the New York Road Runners Scotland 10K race in Central Park. Considering I ran a half marathon two weeks ago, you’d think I would have cruised right through this bad boy today. Not so much. A 10K is 6.2 miles — that’s less than half the distance of a half marathon. […]

Coming Together, Falling Apart

My apartment is coming together really nicely! Though simultaneously my body is falling apart. I battled a sinus infection a few weeks ago, then got better just in time to run the National Half Marathon. Now I’m sick again, this time with a nasty nagging cough and overall head congestion. I’ve tried taking Mucinex (gosh, […]

It’s Always Training Season

My bags are unpacked, my medal is put away and — after a Chisel and Spinning session at the gym tonight — my legs are no longer sore. The National Half Marathon is officially over. Sad! Don’t get me wrong, I’m still psyched about how well the race went. I’ll be happily sticking with my […]

I Like Jazz Hands

Good morning! I’d love to say I stayed up to watch “Glee” after the Super Bowl last night, but I definitely did not. ABS and I went to a Super Bowl party in our neighborhood and though I had no interest in the game, I had plenty of interest in the mac and cheese and […]

Race Recap: Gridiron Classic (4M)

What a great race! For those who are just checking in to see how it went time-wise, I’ll tell you this: I set a personal record (PR)! For those who want the full report, here goes: Since today wasn’t just the Gridiron Classic 4-mile race — it was also going to be a training run […]

A Perfect Day For Sweatpants

This morning I posted my “Weekend To-Do List.” Let’s just say I accomplished…some of the things I needed/wanted to. Honestly, on days like today — wet, gloomy, rainy, cold — To-Do lists should be thrown out the window. But of course, I’m much too crazy for that. So here’s how today went down (wonderfully — […]

Pump Me Up Playlist

Aside from the Turkey Trot I ran with my family in November, it’s been almost a year since my last race! One of my favorite things about racing is creating a new playlist for the occasion. On Sunday, I’m running the New York Road Runners Gridiron Classic 4 Mile race. I’m also planning on tacking […]

See You In 2012, NYC Marathon!

Hopefully I’ll see you sooner, if the 2011 lottery is kind to me. But, I finally did it! With a little extra motivation from ABS and Ashley, I just registered to become a New York Road Runners member, which means I can now participate in the 9+1 program (run 9 NYRR races and volunteer for […]

To Become a Road Runner…

Today has been mostly — OK, totally — awesome. Why, you ask? I’ll tell you. In list form, of course. Because that’s how I roll. I slept in! I didn’t get out of bed until 6:30 am (ahem, that’s a full hour beyond when I normally get up) because I didn’t have to run today. […]
