Today's five songs are from the playlist I made while training for Abbott World Marathon Majors Tokyo Marathon. I like creating specific playlists for each race I train for. During each training cycle I mostly listen to the same playlist repeatedly. When I need an extra boost on a tough run though I'll go back and listen to a playlist from a past marathon training cycle. The playlist brings back good memories, makes me happy, and reminds me that I can indeed do whatever it is I think I … [Continue reading...]

Sponsored conversation by Almond Breeze It’s hard to believe it’s been almost two months since I finished my 41st marathon, Boston Marathon. The month after a marathon is always a mix of of bliss and sadness for me. I’m happy that the experience happened but always really sad it’s over. That sounds crazy when I write it […]

Sponsored conversation by Under Armour This year is flying by….or running by me – rather quickly as I prefer to think… At the beginning of this year Berlin Marathon seemed far off in the future but the time has arrived to start full on training. As I’ve mentioned more recently the time on the clock […]

Today’s run felt harder than it should have. As I was distracting myself from thinking about how it was just a meh run, I thought about how so much of running is truly brain training. Yes we have to train the physical body but if you don’t train the mind, the physical body gives up […]

Sponsored by lululemon & ShopStyle It’s hard to believe it’s been over a week since I ran my 41st Marathon. My legs are feeling great and I’m excited to get back to training and building back the miles for some shorter races and for Abbott World Marathon Majors Berlin Marathon in September! It finally feels […]

I promise that one of these days I will write a post that doesn’t start with me telling you about how I have the goal of wanting to write more…yeah it’s STILL a goal. I believe in my heart I’m going to make it happen and then it just doesn’t, for whatever reason. I love […]

Scenes from other runner’s runs are always some of my favorites, so I decided to devote an entire account to posting mine, because why have just one Instagram account when you can have twenty?! I’m kidding, sort of. My latest Instagram account is @irunthistrail – NO nonsense, just views from my runs. If those types […]

The new year has always been a great time to hunt for treasures at thrift stores. Whether it’s because unwanted gifts have been donated or because many people use the end of one year and the beginning of another to clean out, the thrift stores always seem to be filled this time of year. I […]

Since before Chloe was born I have been volunteering at the ACLI Capital Challenge. I’ve worked my way up from handing out t-shirts to being in charge of the awards + being the “handler” for whatever celebrity runner is the whistleblower for that year. In 2018 as I watched Des Linden win the Boston Marathon […]

I’m sitting here procrastinating. I need to go run. I am having a hard time willing myself to go. It’s cold out. The winds are gusting at 20 mph. Taking in to consideration the wind I ran in yesterday though, 20 mph might actually not feel all that bad. The real feel according to weather.com […]

In keeping with my never-know-what-I-will-say-next personality I’m writing about a recent thrift store find. I absolutely love thrifting! This love has been enabled/encouraged/made stronger? by the fact that I live very close to a handful of local thrift stores. My love of thrift stores started at first as a way to have new to me […]
