Getting Back to Business

731267-1049-0041s

First, I want to apologize for being MIA for the past few days, and thank you all for your kind words and support with regards to the news I shared in my previous post. I really do appreciate all of your well wishes and words of encouragement, and they really have helped me a great deal in making … [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...]

RACE RECAP: Runapalooza, Asbury Park Half Marathon

img_6930

I'm still reeling from last week's events in Boston, but I felt as though the only thing we runners can do to show our unyielding support for the victims and everyone affected by this tragedy -- and a nice big F-U to the [insert expletive of your choice] who did this -- was to just keep running. So … [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...]

Spring Goals

runapalooza

It's beginning to look a lot like spring -- although at a chilly 45 degrees today, it certainly doesn't feel like it! -- so I thought I'd post about some of my spring races! My toe (HOPEFULLY) seems to be on the mend...even though I stupidly decided to go for two short runs this week. I have it … [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...]

Fear of the Unknown

2013-03-15-15-10-31

It's hard for me to believe that it was just a few short weeks ago that I was terrified of not being able to finish a half marathon. And yet last weekend I ran a 20K (which, come on, is pretty much a half marathon!), and yesterday I registered not for a St. Patrick's Day 5K, but instead decided … [Read more...]

I DID IT! My First Half Marathon: Disney Princess!

dscf2762_2

I'm back from my first half marathon and RunDisney event -- the Disney Princess Half Marathon -- and I'll be posting a whole lot of recaps and photos over the next few days...but first and foremost, I would like to announce that I DID finish, and I DID have the time of my life! I cannot WAIT for my … [Read more...]

Why I Love Running

2013-02-06-13-59-37

In honor of Valentine's Day, I thought I'd proclaim the reasons I've fallen head over heels for running. (I better love it, seeing as how ONE WEEK FROM TODAY, I will be headed down to Walt Disney World to take on my very first half marathon!) 1.) The way I feel when I'm done. Sure, sure, the … [Read more...]

Taking a Leap of Faith

dumbo-double-dare-fb-cover

This week, I did something absolutely insane. I still can't believe I did this. On Tuesday morning, I started hearing rumblings of something called "Dumbo Double Dare" on Twitter and the DIS Boards threads I've been frequenting ever since I registered for the Disney Princess Half Marathon. Not … [Read more...]
