Shalane CC

  The Capital Challenge Race came and went faster than a blink of an eye. Hard to believe I’ve been volunteering at this race since before Chloe was born. I find the older I get the faster time moves. One of the things I’ve been working on lately is to be present in the moment. […]

5 - 17 - 1

This is the time of year that my heart starts to flutter when I think about running. After making it through another winter and having a serious love/hate relationship with running – now is when our relationship turns to pure love and happiness on {almost} every run. Monday – 8 miles pushing Colton. On Mondays I […]

May Running 1

It’s been awhile since I have had to log any serious mileage while pushing the running stroller. I knew before starting my run this morning that it was going to be hard no matter the pace. Colton hasn’t been in to running or going to the gym with me lately and for one reason or […]

Run Hundred always has a great top 10 list to keep your playslist fresh and this month is no different. The top 10 list contains a  healthy mix of perennial favorites and relative upstarts. Chart regulars like Shakira and OneRepublic both clock in with their most recent singles. At the same time, Ed Sheeran and Christina Perri are making […]

Littles: Moooooommmmy – can we buy some more bandaids. Me: I will buy them just this once, but band-aids are a waste of money, they don’t help things heal. Littles: Ummm ok. Can we get the spiderman ones? Me: Yes {thinks to self that I’m throwing $2 away again on bandaids that will get placed all […]

Boston 2014 2

My sincere apologies for taking so long to pick a cadet and for the delay in getting this post up. I wanted to read through every single comment and really think about who I was picking for this adventure. There were so many amazing stories and I have a list a page long of women […]

Jess and I will be running the race and taking pictures at Athlete’s Village, along the course, and at the finish – while Michelle will be spectating and sending you what she is seeing from the sidelines. The three of […]

Essie Silver Platter

One of the quirky little things I like to do before races is to make sure my nails are painted and that my hair is straight. I will literally get up an extra 15 minutes early to flat iron my hair. Ditto with going to bed late to make sure even my toes are painted […]

518 My first marathon - MCM '03

Reading through the entries for the Saucony 26Strong marathon team has been amazing. Literally, I wish I could pick all of you, or have a blog post monthly where you all shared these types of stories – it’s so motivating and inspiring to me. I don’t love the word INSPIRE as silly as that sounds. […]

Find Your Strong Headshot

I firmly believe in my head and heart that I GET to run rather than HAVE to run, yet I often have to remind myself of this fact. Lately running has felt like something I have to do instead of something that I make time for because I enjoy it. At night I always go […]

April 1 - 2

April is my favorite month of the year. Its not too hot - not too cold – just riiiiiiight. The thought of April approaching in March makes my heart leap. April 1st is a very special day for me. It’s the birthday of my great grandmother who died of TB when my grandmother was very young, I […]

March 1

In a world that doesn’t often make sense I’d like the weather to – I know – I know – there are bigger issues. It’s been REALLY nice all week and now we are supposed to see a 30 degree temperature drop in one day. I can’t handle this - please get it together mother nature – […]

Yoga Runners

I recently did the 7 minutes with Sima Hip Openers you tube video and highly recommend it. Sima suggested I try this video out pre or post run. I’ve done it post run and felt a difference the next day! I’m NOT a yogi but I am on my way to feeling more confident when […]

wod trail 1

Saturday’s 13 miler was the type of run that makes you remember each and every reason why you fell in love with running in the first place. It was not easy and it certainly was not fast but it was beautiful and it was OUTSIDE. After spending what feels like weeks upon weeks on the treadmill […]

‘Tis a lesson you should heed, If at first you don’t succeed, Try, try again; Then your courage should appear, For if you will persevere, You will conquer, never fear Try, try again; Once or twice, though you should fail, If you would at last prevail, Try, try again; If we strive, ’tis no disgrace […]

Vegas Neg Split 1

I’m going to start this post out with a little disclaimer. I do not know any of the women who finished in the top ten at Rock N Roll Marathon, so I don’t know what was going on during their race or if there were other factors that caused their slow down other than starting […]
