As I mentioned in my previous posts, I’ve been very busy the last few weeks. The result: two long (10 mile) runs and no other runs since Thanksgiving in preparation for this half marathon.
On top of all the other things going on right now, my grandpa passed away last weekend. He was 92, [...]
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday week(end). Mine was filled with food, family, crazy dogs and lots of driving.
We drove to and from Rochester, and also a side trip to Ithaca so my brother-in-law Tim could visit Cornell (he applied there early, send him good luck vibes!).
In the [...]
After getting injured a few weeks before my first marathon I never thought I would travel for a race. I hated losing the registration money for that marathon plus the Cherry Blossom 10 miler that I had to miss out on a few weeks later. If I traveled for a race, that would be a [...]
Today is crazy. My parents are picking me up in 15 minutes to head to my brother’s wedding rehearsal. I just got back from a 20 mile run. And 7 hours ago I was waking up in a Raleigh hotel room.
As you can tell, the day started bright and early. I woke up at [...]
This week did not go according to plan AT ALL.
It started with late night focus groups on Tuesday. Add in a very busy work week, a lost bike lock, and one night of insomnia and my workout (and blogging) schedule was royally screwed.
Today I am heading up to NYC and Long [...]
This week is busy, but short and sweet. Tonight we’re flying to Portland, OR to visit our best friends Lauren & Dave. It’s weird because I feel like we just got back from vacation – I am not certainly not complaining though!
Lauren is one of the few friends from high school or college [...]
Thank you all for the vacation well wishes! I had a great time.
When we got there, I discovered we didn’t have Internet or cell phone service, and only intermittent TV when the satellite worked. The Internet started working on Thursday, but at that point I was really enjoying being completely unplugged and decided to keep it [...]
I’m currently driving up the east coast to Lake George, NY. It’s a long 8.5 hour drive, but I’m hoping it will go by quickly because I’m so excited for this vacation. We’re renting a lake house with a big group of friends. The next week I’ll be spending quality time with some of my [...]
In the last week, I’ve pretty much finalized my race and travel plans for the summer and it is shaping up to be an awesome one. It will culminate with my brother-in-law and brother both getting married at the end of the summer. I’m so excited! Here is what else is happening:
Sorry for the long posting hiatus. I think it was the longest I have ever taken off from blogging. In the last two weeks I have taken 4 flights, spent over 24 hours road trippin’, and stayed in 4 different hotels. Needless to say I’m excited to get back to normal life.
This weekend I [...]
