A Changed Runner

Good morning! It’s a beautiful day in NYC — the last beautiful day of the week, most likely, before we enter a crazy heat wave. Good thing I got an air conditioner this weekend. Good thing I haven’t installed it […]

Off To Fire Island!

I don’t think it’s possible for me to be in a better mood right now. I have to make this post quick because in an hour I’m meeting Lauren and we’re heading out to Fire Island for the weekend. I […]

Happy National Running Day!

I’m sure by now you’ve heard: Today is National Running Day! I love that runners get a holiday, and I love that we celebrate it by doing what we do best: lacing up and hitting the road, trail or treadmill. […]

Brooklyn Half Marathon Recap

I wish I could tell you all that today’s race was perfect and wonderful and that I have a shiny new PR. Sorry. That’s not the recap you’re getting. Today’s race was my roughest one yet — but rest assured, […]

Good morning! It’s only the second week of official training for the Hamptons Marathon, but already I’m loving having a coach and definitely enjoying following a specific training plan. As I mentioned yesterday, I was a little bitter when I […]

When Coach Says “Don’t Run”

It’s Monday…again. I swear, lately I blink and the weekend is over. Not cool. Not cool at all. If you’re catching up from the weekend, you didn’t miss much blogging on my end: On Friday, I celebrated my birthday! The […]

Prioritizing

Last night I wrote about how I’m in a good place right now. That’s true, don’t get me wrong. I’m happy to be settled in my new apartment. I’m being productive every day at work, which is a good feeling. […]

Hamptons Marathon Training: Week 1

Well I’ve already strayed from my training plan. Sorry, Coach Cane. The way I’ll be receiving my training plans is through an online log Coach Cane has set up for me. He’ll plan my workouts one week at a time, […]

In A Good Place

Um. It’s May 2, 2011. That is crazy. That means today is my one month anniversary of living in my new apartment. The entire past few months have been crazy, to say the least. I went through a breakup. I […]
