Foodbuzz Festival and Kennedy Drive 8K

This weekend was the Foodbuzz Festival! Last year’s was fun, but I think I liked this year’s more. I had the baby and a bottle ready so that as soon as Mike got home on Friday night, I could head into the city for the first festival event at Terra […]

Halloween 4 Mile

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Yesterday was Ellie’s first race, the DSE Great Highway 4 Mile (which ended up actually being 3.95 miles – hello autmatic PR!) It was a beautiful morning to run! Mike pushed Ellie in the stroller and Courtney met up with us at the start (she’d already run 4 […]

Rockaway Beach 5K

I’m back! Sort of. I wasn’t sure when I’d be ready for my “comeback race.” Ellie was born 4 weeks and 6 days ago, and my first run in about 4 months was just over 2 weeks ago. But my runs last week felt so fantastic, I decided I […]

My return to running!

I did not think I’d get to write this post so soon! On Thursday I was curious about whether or not I could do some yoga or pilates, since the only exercise I’ve been doing since Ellie was born is walking. I emailed my doctor, and I’m pretty sure I […]

Running and Pregnancy: Part 2

About 12 weeks ago, I wrote about my experiences with running through the first half of this pregnancy. Everything was going well up until about 25 weeks, when I decided to stop running. It was not an easy decision, and in the beginning I pretty much felt like a total […]

2011 Boston Marathon

Marathon number 6 is complete! The Boston marathon yesterday was the most exciting and amazing race I have ever done, and the fact that I ran it with my dad, while 20 weeks pregnant made it even more amazing. Not only is it extremely well organized, the support on […]

Ready to Run!

Until today, I didn’t really understand why people are so crazy about the Boston Marathon. When I started running marathons in 2006 it became a big deal to me (and it took me 5 tries to finally qualify), but now that I’ve gone to the expo and walked around […]

My Boston Apparel

I am probably the least crafty person on earth, so I’m pretty proud that I was actually able to make these iron-on letters look semi-decent! This is what I’m going to be wearing when I RUN THE BOSTON MARATHON (okay, probably shuffle would be a more appropriate verb) I’m taking […]

Running and Pregnancy: Part 1

Finishing up a 14.5 mile run at 18 weeks pregnant Disclaimer: I am not a medical professional. This post simply details my own experience with running and pregnancy. Everyone is different, and what has worked for me will not necessarily work for other people. Today I’m 18 weeks and 1 […]

2010: The year in Running

This was, without a doubt, the best year of running I’ve ever had. Not only did I PR at every distance, I qualified for Boston and ran my first Ultramarathon. I’m elated, but I’m not sure where to go from here, other than just to push for lower PRs in […]
