Ted Corbitt 15K Recap

Lately, my relationship with racing has been a little complicated. We’ve had some great times, but we’ve also been through some rough patches. You see, racing and me, we want to love each other, but sometimes one of us wants to run too fast and then gets tired and it just doesn’t work out in […]

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 […]

Fairfield Half Marathon Recap

How do you recap a race you kind of hated? Sigh. Well, let me clarify: I hated the course and I hated the weather. But there was plenty about yesterday’s Fairfield Half Marathon that I loved. I went into this weekend feeling surprisingly optimistic about the race. Despite a somewhat tumultuous month battling an annoying […]

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 […]

Returning To The Routine

Mondays in general aren’t necessarily the most fun days. But Mondays following awesome long weekends are particularly rough. I’d much rather be sitting on my couch catching up on missed DVR (while wearing my new race medal, of course) than sitting at the office. Oh well! If you’re getting caught up, here’s what you missed […]

I’m Not A Cute Runner

Oh my. Thanks, Brightroom Event Photography, for your fantastic skills capturing my beauty during this weekend’s Gridiron Classic in Central Park. That’s mean. I shouldn’t blame the photographers. They do a great job. When I’m running — especially when I’m racing — I don’t care much about having my photo taken. During the Gridiron, I […]

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 […]

Proud

Most mornings, I’m happy to hop out of bed at 5:30 am to squeeze in a run. It’s just how I like to start my day. I understand that willingly bundling up under three layers and run/skipping around ice patches on the path probably makes me in the minority. But today, getting out there felt […]
