A few weeks ago, I raced a local trail 12k in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. This race wasn't on my schedule but after finding out that CVNP would not allow any races to take place in the park beginning in 2019, I decided to sign up last minute as it would likely by the … Continue reading Dirty Dirty 12k Race Recap
I'm officially 3 days out from the Leave No Trace Marathon! In my last post, I had just completed my longest run of this training cycle of 20.5 miles and was feeling good. Happy to report that I'm still feeling good a few weeks later. I've been tapering without issues-none of the usual second guessing … Continue reading It’s Race Week!!
Actually I heart all running really. I like running on trails, I like running on roads, I even like running on the track sometimes. And I've even grown to love running itty bitty distances for time at my gym. We regulary run at 200, 400 and 800 meter intervals at the gym. While I wish … Continue reading I Heart Trail Running-Pacer Training Week in Review
Hi! I'm back....still here and still training. Just missed a few weeks of posting. Work has been and will likely continue to be busy over the next few months as we prepare for a huge audit in the fall. My desire to write has somewhat waned as I've spent the majority of the day up … Continue reading Catching up
Can you believe we are already over a week into 2018?? I feel like just yesterday, I was writing my 2016 recap! This year has really not turned out how I predicted and planned, and I am ok with that. Initially, I thought I would complete several big races: O24, Mohican Marathon, BT50k and Burning River … Continue reading Reflections on 2017 and Year in Review
Another weekend, another race. I really didn't think through my training plan when I committed to 3 races within 4 weeks. When I signed up for Doan Creek, way back in February, it seemed so far off and distant that I kind of put it out of my mind. So when it popped up on … Continue reading Doan Creek 25k Race Recap
(I think this might be my longest recap ever...trying to recount 3 runs in one recap is tough! Proceed with patience) To say that running a Ragnar Relay is an adventure is an understatement. It was the most epic display of teamwork I've ever seen. Yes it was quite the adventure, but it was the … Continue reading Ragnar Adirondacks Recap
I've been neglecting my poor little blog! I completely missed posting the last few weeks of training. Between general life stressors, being in the thick of the "sandwich generation" and some avoidance of adulting, I haven't posted any training at all in the last few weeks. I've been running which is definitely a plus and … Continue reading Week in Review: Procrastination Edition
One year in!! Such a cliche, but wow that went by fast!! It's been a great year for running and fitness all around. I've accomplished many long time goals (becoming a Marathon Maniac) and some that seemed impossible (running 100k at O24 certainly seemed like an impossible goal!) I've fallen short in some ways. For … Continue reading One Year of Blogging!
I did it! I successfully ran without pain or without triggering any sort of nerve activity!! I received the go ahead during my appointment Friday from my PT Amory, to begin running again. We came up with a plan of how to approach running roads, running trails, and a general guide of how to return … Continue reading I’m Back……Where to go from Here??
