What Not to Do

Today’s training plan called for speed work.  I had plans to get out before the sun came up, but weather and staying up too late contributed to that not happening.  I headed out around 10:00 AM to do my prescribed miles – 1 mile warm up, 2 x 2 miles at HMP (half marathon pace), [...]

The Real Wednesday Post

Yesterday morning I sat at my laptop and cranked out a few blog posts, including this “Wordless Wednesday” post, only to realize a few hours later that it wasn’t Wednesday.  Nope, it was only Tuesday.  I guess I was really excited to get that post up, huh?  That or maybe I am in a rain-induced [...]

I Am Enough

Sunday mornings are spent browsing blogs and Facebook as I drink my first cup of coffee and begin to wake up.  This past Sunday I happened across Jill’s post about the “i am enough project”.  This post really hit home with me.  Why?  Part of the reason I have been struggling on and off for [...]

The Spirit of the Marathon II

I was offered a unique opportunity to see Spirit of the Marathon II on June 12, 2013, but was unable to make it due to a prior commitment.  I was bummed because I really enjoyed the first Spirit of the Marathon movie.  I asked a fellow MIT coach (Chris Kelley) if he would be interested [...]

We are lucky to have some great resources right at our fingertips these days with our smartphones. I have been experimenting with the Motorola Razr HD and will share [...]

For the Love of Brooks

Once I find a running shoe that I like, I am fiercely loyal to that brand.  If you are a runner, you are well aware that proper running shoes are very important pieces to running pain and injury free.  It took me a while to find the right shoes, but when I did, there was [...]

Six Days…

My last half marathon of the spring season is 6 days from today.  The Cap City Half Marathon will be my 3rd half this spring and 13th half overall.  I have learned a lot about myself and my body over the past 4-5 years of running, but there is always more to learn.  My current [...]

Taper Musings

Sometimes I wish I had an on/off switch for my brain so I could quiet the madness. My brain is busy enough on any given “normal” day, but throw half marathon tapering into the mix and I have a whole lot of noise going on. Last month I shared my review of the book “Life [...]
