Thoughts On Joining a NYCM Charity Team

As I’m sure everyone knows yesterday was the lottery drawing for the New York City Marathon. Not surprisingly, I didn’t get in. This is my 3rd year applying and not getting in, so next year I’ll have a guaranteed entry. The only problem is just about all of my running friends are running THIS year … Continue reading

State of the R-UNion

State of the R-UNion

As I mentioned yesterday, my running has been struggling ever since the Dopey Challenge two months ago.  I came off of Dopey on a major running high convinced that I was going to train and PR both the half and full marathon distances this spring and then BAM! There was the cold. the snow. the ice. … Continue reading

The Story of Madison

The Story of Madison

I hope you all don’t mind a recycled post – this was first published last New Year’s Eve, but it’s one of my favorites and I thought it would be appropriate to re-visit as we celebrate the anniversary of Madison coming to live with us!   This is a love story.  It’s the story of … Continue reading

A Volunteer Experience

Thank you all SO much for your encouraging comments on my last post about some of the bumps in the road I’ve hit while going back to school.  I can’t tell you how much it means to have support coming from so many different people and places!  I know I’ll go back and re-read your … Continue reading

Social Media + Fitness = A Great(ist) Match!

Recently the powers that be at Greatist asked their super awesome ambassadors to ponder the question, “how does social media influence your health & fitness?”   Well, considering I was fairly anti-social media altogether before I started running, it was pretty easy to identify the social media & fitness connection for me. Here are just a few … Continue reading

Blogger Awards (better late than never!)

I need to start off this post with a quick apology.  I’ve been nominated by several fellow bloggers for some blogging recognition awards and have been very slow in responding and getting my post up, but here it is! Apologies, and big thank you to all of the lovely ladies who nominated me for these: … Continue reading

Since the last time…

I’ve clearly been a bad blogger.  My apologies for falling off the face of the earth (again!). It’s not that I had a particularly busy week, but you know when you feel like you just can’t get out of your own way??  That’s how I felt this past week and to be honest blogging just … Continue reading

Why Blog?

Why Blog?

First of all, my apologies for disappearing after my venting post earlier this week, but I’ve been busy (and frustrated!) dealing with some school stuff, my spring allergies decided to kick in full force, and to be honest I just didn’t feel like writing (or you probably would have gotten another post of me venting!). This … Continue reading

2013 Goals & Growth Check-In

Happy April! I don’t know about where you live, but around here it’s finally starting to feel a bit like spring and I’m planning on taking advantage of the great running weather before the heat and humidity move in! Since I set some goals for myself at the start of the year, I thought it … Continue reading
