Hey, all! Sorry for the delayed post! I always feel so guilty when I've been a bad blogger. :( Over the weekend, I went to a Somerset Patriots game for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network's annual "Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Day."

Weekly Workouts and 4th of July Racing!

img_7992

Hi all! Sorry I was such a bad blogger last week, the days just sort of escaped me! But since we're starting a new week (and a new month), I figure I'm due for a fresh start, anyway, right?

img_7827

Hi all! How was everyone's weekend? This Friday, I was FINALLY promoted to gold belt in Taekwondo -- super exciting!

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...]

First, I need to just announce that exactly one month from today, I will be arriving at the Walt Disney World resort for the Disney Princess Half Marathon weekend [insert sheer panic here]. This weekend I completed what might be, to many people, pretty small successes. On Friday I finally … [Read more...]

Pushing Your Limits…But Not Too Far

giraldafarms10k2

First, the good news: I ran another 10K last weekend at Giralda Farms in Madison, NJ, and while I didn't technically beat my time from my first 10K in September, it was still 6.2 miles. And I ran it. All of it. Even the hills! Now the bad news: my half-marathon training (running 4-5 times per week) … [Read more...]
