Popular Brooklyn Half 2019 Recap

Only took me two weeks to get this recap up. In my defense, I wrote it the day after the race! Just got realllllly lazy when it came to hitting that “publish” button! But if you’re interested in a 13.1-mile run I did a bit ago, here you go! I ran the Popular Brooklyn Half! […]

United Airlines NYC Half 2019 Recap

I ran a race! A half marathon! And I loved it! And I’m a little sore today! And I love it! That runner’s high, baby. Two days later, and I’m still feeling happy and yeah…sore. My quads and hamstrings, mostly. Ouch! I ran the United Airlines NYC Half this weekend, on a bit of a […]

NYRR New York Mini 10K 2018 Recap

NYRR New York Mini 10K 2018 Recap

I ran one of my favorite races this weekend! The NYRR New York Mini 10K is an all-women’s race that pretty much has it all: an inspiring professional field (Des! Molly! Sarah!), thousands of happy female runners lined up behind them, a great course, and stellar crowd support. I’ve run the race twice before — […]

Superhero Half Marathon 2018 Recap

I ran the Superhero Half Marathon on Sunday! I was talking to my friend Sarah on Friday, and she said she was running a half on Sunday. I asked which one, and where, and she told me it was in New Jersey. It took two words (“do it!”) and I was in. It does not […]

Bermuda Triangle Challenge 2018 Recap

Back in August, my friend Erin (“Feeney,” from this point on — she’s the one I’m always hugging at finish lines) sent an email to a handful of friends, myself included. Subject: Your JetBlue Vacations Itinerary And then, in just two sentences, she sold the entire group on booking a trip to Bermuda in January […]

Abbott Dash to the Finish Line 5K Recap

Saturday was the best day I’ve had in months. In fact, it may have been the best day I’ve had since this same weekend last year. I’d been enjoying a pretty good two-week stretch. Before that, things had been rough. This Crohn’s flare had proven more than just unrelenting — it was turning out to […]

2017 Airbnb Brooklyn Half Recap

I ran the Airbnb Brooklyn Half Marathon this weekend! Previous recaps: 2016, 2015, 2011 I made it to the start line and the finish line, and checked out pretty much every porta-potty in between. By the numbers, it was my slowest half marathon in seven years. But I’m calling it a win. Here’s how it […]

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 […]

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. […]
