2014 Boston Marathon: in the books!

Guys, I HAVE SO MUCH TO TELL YOU!!!! I have no idea how I could ever put this whole weekend in paper. I am still overwhelmed and overhyped. The crowds on the race there the most amazing thing I’ve seen. I had to work hard to run the 26.2 but also to not cry through EVERY SINGLE STEP. I was completely moved by the city. My race was PAINFUL from mile 1, I was hot, tired, slow, I didn’t have any…

it’s a song… quite a good one for your marathon playlist I would say… and I think I am running myself a marathon on Monday…

You might know by now that I am in NO shape to run a marathon, or even a half! I haven’t trained, I haven’t done more than 1 long run since the NYCM in early November, and since I have logged a miserable amount of miles, so … why am I going?Well, I wasn’t thinking I’d do…

Race Report: Scotland Run 10K (more like two 5Ks!)

Any other time, I would have hated the results. But I am happy.

There I went, into my race #95, knowing I wouldn’t PR and I was still happy. The weather was finally nice to run and race in and it’d be a great way to do some speedwork. Even if I am two weeks away from Boston with just one long run. Whatever, right? So I went in relaxed, looking for a training run, to get in below 50 minutes (so…

I went to SoulCycle and HATED it
BEFORE the session

Never mind the title… I am writing this before I go, in case I get sucked into the cult. Seems like it’s a real cult. Seriously. (not that running isn’t but I am already busy with one!). Or at least the people I know like to pray about it and suck you in…

My friend Michelle decided she’d take me to SoulCycle as a bday present. And I have to say I’ll always take an experienceove…

You!

I got an email from a friend (Michelle!!!) with that subject, and this image.

nutella barbieIt is me! I love long wool zip ups, leg warmers, and nutella. Plus the hair color and the spoon are a perfect fit!

The only little difference is that my knees have a bit more personality!

Have a great weekend, run a bit, enjoy a lot, and have a birthday celebratory mile/cupcake for me!!!
