Philadelphia Marathon Training Week 9

This was a cut back week for me, since I had a half-marathon on Saturday. I wasn’t sure how I wanted to run it, but I knew it wouldn’t hurt either way to have a  lighter week of workouts and miles. I took out my MGP run, thinking that at least some of my half-marathon […]

First Race Memories: Baltimore Running Festival 2007

With the Baltimore Running Festival coming up this weekend, I couldn’t help but reminisce a bit about the first time I ran this race in 2007. It  was not only my first half-marathon, but it was my first race ever. I’m sure a pretty basic lesson for most runners is to first do a shorter […]

What I Think About When I Can’t Sleep (TOL #21)

I basically came up with most of this post on Tuesday night when I woke up around 12am and couldn’t fall back to sleep. Does anyone else have their most profound thoughts in the middle of the night? Like I seem to come up with a million things I should do at work, and also […]

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 […]

Run to Remember 5k: Not Quite a PR

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 on flat ground. My run […]

Thinking Out Loud #15

Well its Thursday again which means as usual its time to think out loud! Let’s see, what have I been thinking about this week? Running Aren’t I always thinking about running? This week running has been really good. Besides the little foot scare earlier in the week, I have felt great. I hit all my […]
