Philly Half Marathon Recap

Last Sunday I ran the Philly Half Marathon, just like I do every year.  I love Philly Marathon weekend.  Yes, I'm biased but Philly does a damn good job of putting on a spectacular race.  And the spectators aren't half bad either!  If you're looking for a Fall half or full, seriously consider Philly … [Read More...]


changing my mind again…

Two weeks ago I ran the Philly RnR Half Marathon for the 12th time.  This was also my 4th postpartum race and I had some high hopes - not PR hopes but I was sure I would finish sub-1:50.  Well, I didn't.  Not even close:  1:56:41.  It was unexpectedly humid and yes, that counted for something but it … [Read More...]


Training Update {8 months out}

Fiona will be 8 months old tomorrow.  Eight months?!  I sound so cliche but time really does pass in the blink of an eye.  I wish the same was true for training. This is definitely my longest training cycle so far.  By the time the marathon rolls around I will have racked up 20 weeks of … [Read More...]


50K out. Marathon in.

Turns out I'm running a marathon on October 18th.  Something I distinctly remember saying that I would not do this year. Months ago I registered for the Blues Cruise 50K after much research.  I scoured photos of the course and read every race recap I could find.  The course was hilly but not … [Read More...]


lately and lesson learned

It's been awhile…almost 2 months to be exact. The past 2 months have been a whirlwind.  I'm going to do a seperate post on 50K training but first an update on life in general is needed. I quit my job in early July to become a SAHM, running coach, and (former) barre instructor.  More on that … [Read More...]


ODDyssey Half Marathon Recap

I ran the ODDyssey Half Marathon for the second time on Sunday.  Last year I was 10 weeks pregnant.  This year I'm 5 months postpartum.  Same race but 2 very different experiences. I love Fiona's arm rolls I'll cut right to the chase - it sucked.  I ran a 1:57:42 - a far cry from my 1:53:08 in … [Read More...]


Broad Street Run (Race Recap)

It's been nearly 2 weeks since the Broad Street Run and I'm glad I wasn't able to recap this race sooner.  A little perspective changes everything. This race is a clusterfuck each year.  A nightmare of crowds and congestion to get there and get home.  Forty thousand runners packed into a small … [Read More...]
