Charles Street 12 2015 Race Recap

The Charles Street 12 was held over Labor Day weekend this year, after being held in early August the two previous years. I think we were all hopeful for cooler temps for this race with it being closer to fall, but the Baltimore summer humidity still lingered. Otherwise, it was a great event once again! […]

Dreaded Druid Hills 10k 2015 Race Recap

It’s a good thing I committed myself to writing this recap for today, otherwise it would probably be one of those races that I blocked out of my memory. Truth be told it really wasn’t that bad. I think the fact that it was kind of a “blah” race for me (based on how I was feeling) […]

10 Things About The Pikesville 5k (Race Recap)

Last Sunday Rob and I ran in the Pikesville 5k for the third time in four years. I should have written this immediately after the race, so unfortunately I feel like I have already forgotten details about this race. Instead of play-by-play race recap, I am just going to share a bunch of key points about how this […]

Molly Murphy Memorial 5k 2015

On Sunday we ran in the Molly Murphy Memorial 5k, a race to raise awareness for anxiety and depression in young adults. This was our second year participating in this race; however, last year the race was held in July. Somehow this year’s race was hotter even though it was a few weeks earlier in the season.  […]

Stoneleigh Stampede 5k Race Recap

As I mentioned yesterday, I ran a 5k on Saturday- my first race of 2015! I had been thinking about doing a 5k but I didn’t really want to commit to anything until I knew that my body would be ready to race. However, I also knew I wasn’t in “racing” shape so I planned […]

5 Baltimore Races to Run in 2015

Today’s theme for the Friday Five link-up is “5 Races to Run in 2015”, so I thought I would share my 5 favorite Baltimore races! We will go in order from shortest to longest distance; I tried to include some variety in this list!: 1. Run to Remember 5k (9/13/15) I haven’t done too many 5ks that go […]

Lessons From My Toughest Races + Class Pass in Baltimore!

I wanted to start off today’s post by sharing a couple of exciting announcements! You may have seen on Instagram yesterday that I was selected to be a PRO Compression ambassador! I almost dropped my lunch out of my mouth when I read the E-mail because I applied last year and was not selected, but figured […]

2015 Tentative Race Schedule + Inspiration Board

After yesterday’s post it felt kind of awkward to jump into a post about what races I am planning to do this year. I tend to get in an “all or nothing mindset” so when I’m not running I feel like I will never run or race again and then a week later when I […]

A Look Back at 2014: Running and Races

Today’s Tuesdays on the Run link-up topic is “A Look Back at 2014”. This is a post I have wanted to write, but wasn’t sure where to start. So today I am planning to look back at the year in running and races. Then, later this week I’ll recap the year related to my goals.  […]

What Helped Me Run A Faster Marathon

After the Philadelphia Marathon, a few people had asked me what helped me to cut 15 minutes off my time in 6 months. I had wanted to post about this for awhile, but really wanted to think about what is was that helped me. I realized it wasn’t really just one or two things, it […]
