It’s been a hot minute…err….a few months since I have given any updates. A lot has happened in the last several months since my last post with life in general. I have moved to Chicagoland after a divorce and still doing my thing pounding the pavement. I’ve had a few PRs (in a 5k and half marathon) and also a few ‘bad races’ which happens … Continue reading Still Going Strong….
The miles are ramping up as I am now less than 2 months from running my second marathon. The total miles for the month was 148, not too bad for a short month. It was so cold this month. I hate running on the treadmill for long runs. I can handle being on there for a little over an hour, but several hours, no thank … Continue reading February Recap
It’s been a little while since I have last written and a lot has happened this month. This month, I came in at 153.9 miles for the month. This is the highest mileage for a month, ever. While training for Chicago, the highest I came in at was 153 miles in August. I didn’t really mean to run this many miles, but the weather was … Continue reading January Wrap up and Big News
It’s crazy to think that just a year ago, I just started running consistently. I took my last run on Sunday for the year and hit 1160 miles for the year. I had only run 20 miles in 2017 and all of those miles were in the last week of the year. December was a month of getting back in the swing of things and … Continue reading 2018 Reflections
As I sit here and reflect on my running on October, I am still thinking back to Oct 7 and running 26.2 miles. I think about all of the crowds lined the streets in the pouring rain for 16 miles (rained for first 16 miles). That 4 hours and 42 minutes is something that I will never forget. Now that I have the one under … Continue reading October Wrap Up
It’s official, I am a marathon runner. I am a one-percenter (less than 1% of the world population have completed a marathon). Back in December, I committed to running a marathon to raise money for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation. In that 10 months, with the help of friends and family, I helped raise over $5,100 to help try and find a cure for Crohn’s … Continue reading I am a Marathon Runner
It’s crazy to think that I am one week away from putting my toe on that starting line and taking on 26.2 miles in Chicago next week. I have 3 more runs this week and an easy shake out run on Saturday. I think back to when I committed to this journey back in the beginning of December (see 1st blog post). When I committed … Continue reading September Wrap Up
