Last Minute Prep For The NYC Marathon

I most definitely have pre-race jitters!  They are very similar to the way I felt before my first Walt Disney World Marathon.  I had to clean off my desk and get all my affairs in order so that I could focus on my agenda, timing, locations of where I need and want to be, and…read more

NYC Marathon Taper

I am in that crazy taper mode for the NYC Marathon and I’m starting to feel a little batty!  I dressed for a run the other day, went out the door, started walking as my warm up, did one running interval for 30 seconds and then walked the rest of my time on the road. …read more

People Don’t Give A BLEEP!

I came across some content from Gary Vaynerchuk on LinkedIn this week. His insight is very interesting.  He states the obvious.  The messages I took away from listening to him are: You need to be optimistic. Do what you want to do. “You have to figure out how to try shit.” Find your passion. See…read more

Where it all started

The photo on the top of this blog is of Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire.  I vacation there every summer and my son took that picture at just 4 years old.  This is the whole shot. On our last trip there last summer I made sure not to be too lazy.  I took walks every…read more

The Long Run

I am reading a great book that a fellow runner Danielle recommended on her blog.  I am reading it on my kindle and love the story.  I can’t wait to get to the end of it.

Cross training

Well, I have done it, I started to cross train.  In other words, I am doing the treadmill and the elliptical machine in my garage with the doors open so I can still feel like I am outdoors while doing something other than running in my neighborhood.  On days where it is just too rainy/cold…read more

A new year – 2012

2012 January 2, 2012 – Frosty 5K in Guilford – 28:47 (It was far from Frosty.  I was dressed for colder temps and was very hot while running which slowed me down). My goal for 2012 would be to put in an X amount of miles per week (TBD) and also per year.  I haven’t…read more
