Resolutions are lame, but here are mine.

We’ve dipped our pinky into the new year, and it tastes pretty delish. I’ve mentioned before that ends and beginnings are weird for me, but also so exciting. 2017 had a lot of highs and also a good deal of oh shit moments. I ran into 2017 with a lot of goals, and I was…

Things I figured out this year…kind of.

The end of a year rolling into the beginning of a new one is always a funny, anxiety-driven time for me. I love fresh starts, new pages, white walls, early mornings — I mean, I’m a runner and a Virgo, after all. But, I tend to struggle with the feeling of having “it all pass…

“Fa”, a long long way to run.

Yes, yes I know. It’s been forever! I’ve just had such a crazy past few months, you know, with marathon training and all. You get it, right? I had a feeling you’d understand. Jokes aside, I’m back. And I have so much to discuss. Mostly, the New York City Marathon. So let’s jump right in….

Don’t let a burn out burn you down

When I was considering a training plan for this year’s New York Marathon, I really, really wanted to stick to a 12-week cycle instead of the traditional 16 or even 20 week programs. Why? Because the last two times (the only two times) I’ve trained for a marathon I’ve seriously derailed somewhere past the 50%…

Runners helping Houston: 5 ways to help while breaking a sweat

“There are no politics in eight feet of water, there are human beings” -Queen Sandra Bullock It’s been almost a week since Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas, but just one week down to a long, difficult journey to rebuild. Texas is one of my favorite places. While my love is specific to the times…

This time it’s different.

Hi, remember me? Yeah, that’s good ol’ drama queen me. I’ve just been over here, still being a drama queen, but actually also, being surprisingly pretty chill. When it comes to running. If ya follow me on the ‘gram, you’ll know that I’m training for my third (!!!!) marathon, my second New York.  You also…

A mighty mile

In the month of June, Strava launched the #MyMile challenge. Here’s what I know about the #MyMile challenge: You had to run a mile There was an event when you could run a mile with everyone else running a mile You should be proud of your mile Running a mile is really f*cking hard I’m…

10. Run, Rest, Learn: What being hurt taught me, about me.

As many of you know, I got injured this year. Not an overuse injury, not a “sprained ankle on my long run injury” – just a real-bad, “you’re OUT!” injury that set me back month, took me our my goal races and totally changed the game for me. I spent some time reflecting on how…

09. Fireside (TV-side) Chat with Bennett Snyder

This episode has been sitting on its pretty little shelf for several weeks now. I was just saving it for the perfect opportunity where my schedule was just a bit too crazy, and the timing was just right. And the time is now! I sat down, on my couch, with one of my favorite people…

08. #NJMarathon Memories and Ramblings

In this episode I go rogue and reflect on all the spontaneously weird things I did the morning of my first marathon, the New Jersey Marathon in 2016. I’ve thrown a few punches at my first marathon experience, and how it compares to the second, but there is something to be said about the first…

Hit the ground run/walking

In case of a fire emergency, you’re supposed to use the back of your hand to test if a surface such as a doorknob is hot. Just to be safe. And that’s exactly how it felt to go on my first run back. Kind of like reaching for a doorknob that might give me a…
