Race Recap: Runner’s World 5K and 10K

DSCF6594

Hi, all! This weekend, I tackled the Runner's World Hat Trick: a 5K, 10K, and half marathon in the same weekend. The good news? I survived! The bad news? The half marathon was, by far, my most difficult race to date. Hands down. No question about it. And that's including running … [Read more...]

Race Recap: ING Hartford Half Marathon

DSCF6312

Hey, guys! Here I go again with the delayed post. There's something about weekend race-cations that throw me completely out of whack for a few days afterwards.... ;) Anyways, Todd and I (once again) decided to go on a last-minute, impromptu trip for a race this past weekend, and this time it was … [Read more...]

So, big announcement here, for anyone who doesn't already know. I am now, officially, in training for a marathon. A freakin' marathon.

DSCF4441

Hope everyone had an awesome weekend! I definitely did...it was my birthday weekend! I celebrated my 28th birthday on Friday, and decided to ring in a new year of my life with a 10-mile race. On the beach. In the middle of one of the hottest months of the year. (In case any of you were … [Read more...]

Race Recap: Woodbridge Run for Pizza

Our first photo/race :)

Last night I ran 4 miles through the streets of Woodbridge, New Jersey for the Woodbridge Run for Pizza. Even though I hate racing in the summer because I can never perform to what I know is my full capability, it was sort of a big deal because it was the first race that I'd be running with the new … [Read more...]

Running Makes You Stronger. Period.

2001

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend! The weather kind of sucked here in NJ (except for Monday), but I did get to spend some time in Atlantic City and catch a Third Eye Blind concert...I've been obsessed with them since middle school, and pretty much stalk them every time they come … [Read more...]

My Incredibly DOPEY Decision

disneyprincesshalfmarathon1

So yesterday I did something crazy. Like, real crazy. WAY crazier than my decision to register for the Dumbo Double Dare, which I thought was just pure MADNESS at the time (and now just doesn't seem so scary after all). Yesterday, I got completely swept up in the excitement of Walt Disney World's … [Read more...]

Taking it Easy After an Injury

dscf3166

Hope everyone had a lovely Easter weekend, if you celebrate! I spent the better part of my weekend in Atlantic City with my sister on an impromptu girls' weekend, eating and drinking WAY too much...which I then continued when I made about six million not-so-healthy choices on Easter. Needless to … [Read more...]

Putting Myself ‘Out There’

beach2007

For more than three years now, I have been keeping a secret. I have a blog. While those of you who follow me on Twitter -- my main forum for publicizing the goings-on here at "The Final Forty" -- may be scratching your heads right now, allow me to explain. I started blogging in January of 2010 … [Read more...]

Race Recap: St. Paddy’s Day 10-Miler

dscf3094

In addition to consuming all sorts of green goodies yesterday -- and, unfortunately, I don't mean spinach and celery -- I tackled a new race distance: the 10-miler. I ran the St. Paddy's Day 10-miler hosted by the Freehold Area Running Club. Once again, I cut it dangerously close to the start of … [Read more...]
