Goals for the New York City Marathon

So we're only a few days away from the New York City Marathon!!! I can't believe it's almost here. In some ways, it feels like I've been training FOREVER...and, in others, the last couple of months seemed to fly by. Our final weeks of training have come and gone, and I'm VERY MUCH enjoying my … [Read more...]

Hey, guys! So I have officially survived my first week of marathon training after several weeks months of what can only be described as "recreational" running.

Okay, here it is. I'm back with my full recap of the New Jersey Marathon! I'll start with a quick look at the expo. I say quick look because there wasn't really anything there. The half and full marathons draw some 6,000 runners -- about 4,000 for the half, and 2,000 for the full (along with a 5K … [Read more...]

Hey, guys! It's going to take me a couple of days to write the full recap of yesterday's New Jersey Marathon (mainly because I'm suffering from my usual bout of post-marathon exhaustion right now, haha), but I did want to drop in and announce that Todd and I successfully completed my 5th/his 4th … [Read more...]

Happy Friday, all! So, last weekend we tackled the big kahuna in any marathon training plan. That's right, ladies and gentlemen... THE 20-MILER IS COMPLETE. Honestly, it wasn't our best long run. Granted, it definitely wasn't the WORST either. We tackled the 20 miles in my old stomping … [Read more...]

I'm in the home stretch of training for my two "goal" races of the season, so I thought it would be a fine time to update you all on my progress.

Somebody pinch me. Around 9:30am yesterday -- NEW YORK CITY MARATHON LOTTERY DAY! -- I received an e-mail alert from American Express saying that a charge was made on my account. And, oh, the excitement...it was a $255 charge from New York Road Runners! As you may already know, Todd and I … [Read more...]

Training Updates: New Jersey Marathon

So I'm in the middle of training for the New Jersey Marathon, and I know I suck at sharing my weekly training logs. I have the best intentions, I swear! But I thought I'd at least drop in with an update on how things are going so far. The first few weeks were pretty uneventful. I had done a bit … [Read more...]
