New York City Marathon Training: Week 5

Week 5 of marathon training was a week. It was just…a week. An emotional one, a stressful one, a not-feeling-like-myself one. It was also the first week that I felt like marathon training really started to catch up to me. I was super tired every day, my appetite was off, and even though I got my workouts […]

New York City Marathon Training: Week 3

Week 3 of New York City Marathon training was great! I loved Week 3! My third week of training consisted of two well-executed (and hard) workouts, a fun long run, and one delicious ice cream cone. I was working at Dance Spirit all week, so I (again) didn’t squeeze in any strength training, but I […]

Single Digit Saturday

I don’t remember the last time I slept in on a Saturday. I definitely don’t remember the last time I ran fewer than double-digit miles on a Saturday.

I Love Food

I have no complaints today. Actually, that’s not true. I have one. I was woken up this morning not by an alarm, not by the sun, and not even by a rumbling stomach. I woke up because my toe hurt. Stupid, I know. There seems to be something growing on my 2nd to littlest toe […]

Thankful Things Thursday: On Being Tired But Perky

I’m so sleepy. Turns out, averaging 5 hours of sleep a night will catch up with you. But who cares that I’m tired? I mean really. A former boss once shared an article with me called “No One Cares How Tired You Are.” So true. Everyone is tired all the time. Welcome to adulthood. With […]
