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...]

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...]

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...]

Race Recap: Miles for Music 20K

dscf3029

Yesterday I took on my first 20K, and I did it for time -- unlike my first half marathon in Disney World last month. It was a race organized by a local music teacher and runner that benefits music education in schools, and I thought that was a great reason to get out of bed at 6:45 on a Sunday … [Read more...]

New Challenges, New Distances

img_4424

Ever since I returned from my Disney Princess Half Marathon trip (recap part one here; recap part two here), I've been anxious to put my half marathon training to the test. As you may recall, I didn't exactly perform at my best in Walt Disney World -- namely, because I decided to make photo ops and … [Read more...]

Race Recap: Disney Princess Half Marathon (part two)

727314-1128-0050s

Just in case you missed my previous recaps from the Disney Princess Half Marathon weekend: check out my expo recap here, and race recap part one here. When I left off, I had spotted my ChEAR Squad in front of Cinderella's Castle. Now I know what they mean by the power of the spectator in a race, … [Read more...]

Race Recap: Disney Princess Half Marathon (part one)

img_1886

I've been waiting for a long time to be able to write this particular post: a recap of my very first half marathon in my very favorite place in the world. I've decided to split it into two sections because, otherwise, it would just be RIDICULOUSLY long...especially since I thought I'd share the … [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...]
