Runner Etiquette

Post-Marathon Week 2 is done. I had 24 miles of running and felt good. A little nagging foot soreness, but nothing too bad. MUCH better than my first marathon recovery last December.

NYC Marathon Training Week #18

What an exciting week of training! I'm really behind on blogging after a whirlwind weekend and playing catchup yesterday. I really enjoyed my first week of taper...maybe a little too much!

NYC Marathon Training Week #13

This week was another good week of training. Challenging, but good. I was tired all week, and the cumulative fatigue of the last 13 weeks of training is definitely being felt in my legs (and my brain). Work was super busy and life was busy, and it was all catching up with me. This week,… Continue reading NYC Marathon Training Week #13

This Week's Wrap-up: Feeling All the Emojis This week, I will be only 2 months away from the NYC Marathon! It's gettin' real, y'all. Last year, as I was training for my first marathon, I wasn't sure I could actually finish a marathon, much less do it upright. I was googling gurney availability. lol. Seriously. I had… Continue reading NYC Marathon Training Week #11
