I am #9623

It’s official!  I am running a marathon on Sunday. (As if the past four months of training weren’t enough to make me believe I am actually running!) Let me back up.  This morning I completed my final run before 26.2 – an easy three mile run simply to keep my legs fresh before the race.  [...]

Less than two weeks ago, my boyfriend, Michael, ran the New York City Marathon in 3:20:46, finishing in the top 7% of 45,000+ runners.  As incredible as this time is, it wasn’t what he was hoping for.  Yet somehow he managed to finish the race smiling and proud.  In preparation for my marathon, I asked [...]

It turns out that my class schedule this summer reflects how my work schedule used to be when I lived in NY and recently I’ve found myself digress back to some of my old habits. Due to my busy schedule, I’ve forgotten to pack lunch, I’ve been slacking at grocery shopping and for the last [...]

I’m about to head out for my A&P practical (as in, we look into microscopes and identify what we see…fun times).  But I just wanted to let everyone know that today is National Running Day! If you’re a regular runner – make sure you get out there and enjoy your run!  Maybe take some time [...]

With my legs still a little weak from Saturday’s half – as in, it feels like I did 100 squats – I figured I’d touch on a question I’ve received a few times from friends and family.  Basically, they say to me “your meals look great, but I’m still not sold on the local thing.”  [...]
