Race Recap: Rock n Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon 2019

I had originally planned for this race to include a nice, long weekend in Philadelphia. I really wanted to do some sightseeing and take time off of work. However, it didn't quite work out that way since I had to be in Seattle for a week-long summit. I ended up shuffling some things around and … Continue reading Race Recap: Rock n Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon 2019

Race Recap: Polo Field 5K 2019

For Erik's birthday, I planned a surprise trip to San Francisco with a handful of running friends. After doing some research, it turns out that there are very few running races in downtown San Francisco during Labor Day weekend. That seems like a massive oversight, in my opinion! There happened to be two races, both … Continue reading Race Recap: Polo Field 5K 2019

Running Gear Recommendations and Bargains 2019

When you train as often as I do, you need lots of workout clothes. They can get pretty expensive, so I am compiling a list of my affordable must haves here for anyone that needs it. I do not get compensated for these links or mentions. (I'm mostly too lazy to set all of that … Continue reading Running Gear Recommendations and Bargains 2019

Race Recap: Rock n Roll San Diego 2019

I really did not want to do this race. REALLY did not want to. What I looked forward to most was the distraction of a weekend race...as well as In-n-Out. I was really just going through the motions of the race weekend. It was nice to see all of my friends again, who wanted to … Continue reading Race Recap: Rock n Roll San Diego 2019

Race Recap: Shiprock Half Marathon 2019

Hooray! This was my first race after I learned that I was pregnant. I was super excited to be one of those running mamas. I had big plans to race at least once a month while pregnant, no matter how short the distance. I was inspired by some of the other pregnant moms in the … Continue reading Race Recap: Shiprock Half Marathon 2019

Training Recap: Weeks 17-18 of Escape from Alcatraz

7 weeks to go! 😬 My last two weeks of training have gone pretty well...sort of. I now see 6 red blocks in week 17, but I did go to Orangetheory four times that week. I'm calling it a rest week after two intense training weeks. I was feeling pretty awful on Thursday and Friday … Continue reading Training Recap: Weeks 17-18 of Escape from Alcatraz

Training Recap: Weeks 10-16 of Escape from Alcatraz

I haven't been able to do as much as I'd like with my writing. I used to write weekly training recaps to help me reflect on my progress and goals. My writing has taken a bit of a backseat to my work and teaching (which includes lots of grading). So, in the time I've been … Continue reading Training Recap: Weeks 10-16 of Escape from Alcatraz
