Beautiful....all of it....

Two weeks out from Boston this weekend was not about running. I squeezed in a semi speedy 12 miler on Friday because I just wasn’t in the mood to run – strange I know – 12 miles is better than no long run miles. 6 weeks between back to back marathons is too long for my […]

At the start line of B & A Marathon

I’m always on the hunt for the perfect black capri. You would have thought by now I would have found one that I was in love with but I hadn’t. There were plenty I liked – some I liked A LOT others I liked a LITTLE. Some I would even go so far as to say […]

Mile 26

Saturday I woke up and knew I needed to run 20 miles – my last long run before Boston. Twitter and facebook haunted me as countless runners posted pictures and comments of how great their final long run went. It didn’t motivate me. It made me frustrated. I didn’t want to run long. I was […]

I had planned to wake up early Sunday to do an easy recovery run, but with no one to meet me I didn’t feel accountable to waking up early. The kids slept in and so did I. 7:45 wake up call was NICE compared to my normal wake up time of 5:45 or earlier. Eric […]

Kinvara 3

After procrastinating a little this morning I set off for my first long run post B & A and my first long run of Boston Marathon training 2012. B & A Marathon and Boston Marathon are six weeks apart. I happen to think is a very awkward distance when attempting back to back marathons. Last […]

Kinvara 3 - 4

I was taught from a very young age that you should stand up for what you believe in. That you should always be respectful, but that being respectful does not mean that you have to agree with everyone you meet. This morning I stood up for something I believed in – my opinion. Some of […]

miles of smiles

  Mile 1: I like running because it’s a challenge. If you run hard, there’s the pain – and you’ve got to work your way through the pain. You know, lately it seems all you hear is? Don’t overdo it’ and? Don’t push yourself.’ Well, I think that’s a lot of bull. If you push […]

Running a marathon is similar to when you have a baby – you really find out how many people care and love about you. The outpouring of love I have gotten this week has been amazing. I read each and every comment on this blog and take all of your words to heart. They get me […]

to  me…. Before B & A Marathon 2010 I was a mommy of two. I was training hard to achieve my goal of going sub 3:30 in the marathon. It was not easy. I had to do most of my training on the treadmill, but I was more than determined to realize my dreams. I was […]
