Training Recap: Week 6+7+8+9 Escape from Alcatraz

I just wrapped up month 2 of my 5-month training plan. Something that I am learning is that following a training plan is becoming very difficult for me!

Training Recap: Week 3+4+5 Escape from Alcatraz

Week 3 and 4 were quite interesting. I've been really scatterbrained lately, which is odd because school is not in session 🙂 In an effort to help me with training, I've rejoined Orangetheory Fitness.

Race Recap: Rock n Roll Savannah Half Marathon 2018

I had been wanting to run Rock n Roll Savannah since 2012. It was one of the first races I registered for when I bought my first tour pass. My goal was always to run the full marathon, but I came up very short on training time. My longest run had been 17 miles on …

Race Recap: Rock n Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon 2018

Las Vegas is a fun city. It is more fun in November when you get to run on the Las Vegas Strip in the evening! I've generally had a pretty good time at this race in the past, but the day before the race I came down with a cold. It was such bad timing …
