Thinking Out Loud #18

Happy Thursday everyone! I’m at a conference today and tomorrow, so likely won’t be reading any blogs and will hopefully catch up a bit over the weekend. But as usual I’m here today for some Thinking Out Loud! 1. So how great has this weather been lately? I realize if you…

Breaking Through a Mental Wall in Training

I saw this topic pop for the Tuesdays on the Run link up, hosted by Run The Great Wide Somewhere, My No-Guilt Life, and MCM Mama Runs, and felt like I was at a good point in my training to talk about this. The mental side of marathon training is…

Run to Remember 5k: Not Quite a PR

On Sunday I ran in the Run to Remember 5k held by Charm City Run and sponsored by the Mercy Foot and Ankle Institute. This was my third time participating in this race, and it’s always a great one. The race didn’t start until 8:46 which is much later than…

Meal Planning Week of 9/14 and Lunch Ideas

We have yet another hectic week ahead of us, but I did my best to come up with some easy and quick meals for the week. Sunday: Homemade pizza (it’s been awhile, and this is always a fun treat!) We usually make ours with store bought whole wheat crust, tomato…

Philadelphia Marathon Training Week 4

Thinking Out Loud #17

I feel like at one point I was able to be creative with the titles and themes of these posts…but lately they are all over the place and I can never figure out a common theme for all the randomness. But then again, isn’t that what “thinking out loud” is…

Appreciation For The Easy Runs

Lately I think that I have developed a new-found appreciation for the easy runs in my training cycle. I used to think of easy runs as boring, slow, annoying, extra miles…or on the other hand there was a time when I wasn’t really doing “easy” runs so I was really just adding another…

Humidity and Hills: My Two Worst Running Enemies

This past weekend reminded me of just how much I hate humidity and hills when running. Well I actually don’t HATE hills- I really enjoy a nice downhill and I am learning to conquer the uphills slowly but surely. But they still make my legs tire much more than running…
