How Do You Measure Progress?

I am now on week 7 of my training, with 8 weeks to go. I’m at a point where I feel like I have put in a lot of hard work, but I am starting to question if my workouts will get me to where I need to be. I’m still not even sure what […]

Weekends Are For Long Runs And Wine

Last week at work someone asked me what plans I had for the weekend. My reply? “I get to run 18 miles on Saturday”. Yea, I definitely got quite a look about that statement. All week I was seriously excited for my long run. I’m not sure what is was- probably a combination of the […]

WIAW: Then and Now

This post was inspired by Sunday’s post which got me thinking about how some of the things I typically eat have changed over the past year. It’s funny because a year ago I thought I was doing really well with my nutrition. I don’t think I was doing “bad” but I think there is always […]

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 tricky. You want to be […]

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 I usually go out running. […]

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 sauce, fresh mozzarella, grilled chicken, […]
