Here we are, one week into the new year, and I am just now getting around to my year-end wrap-up post. I guess putting an end to procrastination was not on my list of New Year’s resolutions for 2012.
A lot has happened in the last few weeks. Three weeks ago, we set off for […]
I am finally writing my marathon recap on Friday morning before we go to our second Thanksgiving (at my sister’s and her fiancee’s house; we did Thanksgiving with Tim’s family yesterday). I figure after 26.2 miles, we’ve earned double the indulgence this holiday!
I am officially a marathoner! It was harder than I had imagined […]
I am officially on vacation until Tuesday. My bags are packed, I’m picking Tim up in about an hour and a half from work, and then we’re off to Philly. Race weekend is here! I feel great and ready to run! The weather forecast looks good, and I am so excited!
The 18 weeks of […]
It’s official. I have become one of those runners at whom I used to shake my head in disbelief over the lengths they would go to in their training. I am now one of the crazy ones.
Yesterday marked the end of the build portion of our marathon training plan – our 20-miler. Through […]
We are inside four weeks until the marathon! I am very excited for the race and feeling really happy because I feel so good right now, physically. I should probably knock on wood for saying that. We still have our 20-miler this Saturday to get through. But, I’ve been feeling strong on my runs […]
Guess what? Eighteen weeks is a LONG training plan. The marathon is five weeks from today, and I feel like we’ve been training forever. But, everything is going pretty well. And I think – knock on wood – I’m going to make it to the starting line!
Last Saturday, Tim and I did a 13 […]
Yesterday, Tim and I tackled 17 miles for our long run, which was the longest distance Tim has ever run and one mile short of my longest run ever. We decided to get out of the city and head to the C&O canal trail for our run. Our training, while going well, is starting […]
Quick update: I did a short 1.6 mile Patterson Park loop last night to test out the toe, and it appears that I’m back in business. And that loop put me over 500 miles run for the year! Which reminded me of this song:
Remember that one? “But I […]
And here I am, waiting – again – to see if the dull, twinge-y, aching where my right big toe meets the rest of my foot is an injury or just discomfort that will feel better with a little […]
What to say about today that hasn’t already been said? So I will keep it short. I cannot believe it has been 10 years. When I look back – just at my own life – over that timeframe, I am almost overwhelmed by everything that has happened. A lot of wonderful times, a lot of […]
