Scotland 10k Race Recap

Race outfit

I got up early Saturday AM (5am) and did my usual pre-race routine: Drank my coffee, nursed the little guy who had just woken up (and decided not to go back to sleep), ate a slice of whole wheat bread with peanut butter, drank some Nuun, packed my bag and was out of the house […]

Two Weeks Off From Running + Scotland 10k this weekend

First ride in the wagon!

I loved reading all your comments on yesterday’s post – glad to know that my husband and I are not the only ones who struggle with both fitting in working out daily. Ever have a day where everything seems to go your way?  Yesterday was one of those days for me.  Started with an amazing […]

Hot Chocolate 10k Race Recap

Awesome coffee mug!

As I said yesterday, I’m not going to sit here and blame the freezing temperatures or the ice / slush on the ground as the reason I did not reach my goal.  I signed up for a race in the winter in NYC, so ice/snow/freezing temperature kind of goes along with the territory.  Do I […]

Thanks, Mother Nature!

Female Finishers

Yesterday’s 10k race didn’t go as planned…partially due to Mother Nature.  She decided to give us about an inch or so of snow Friday night.  It wouldn’t have been a problem had it not been well below freezing overnight and all day yesterday.  The race started at 8am and despite an amazing job by the […]

Helpful Distraction

Color Wheel

Yesterday’s workout – last hard run before Saturday’s 10k: 1 mile warmup: 8:41 pace 5k tempo: 6:40 pace (20:43) 1/2 mile cooldown: 8:17 pace I wanted to do a 5k today to practice running on tired legs to replicate what the second half of the 10k on Saturday will feel like.  My legs were definitely […]

It’s Racing Time

Racing

This Saturday is my first race (where I’ll actually be racing for time) since I found out I was pregnant a year ago. I’m getting anxious, nervous, excited to race again.  I’m running the Hot Chocolate 10k in Prospect Park.  If I run a sub-42, I can apply for the Saucony Hurricane Team.  I haven’t raced […]

#Lucky13 Fitness Goals

Run this Year Challenge

  Happy New Year!! I love the start of the New Year.  There is something so exciting and invigorating about setting goals for the next 365 days and hearing about all the goals others have set. 13 has always been a lucky number for me (it was my high school basketball number for a few […]

First Step is Believing + Review of Saucony Guide 6

5k results

My biggest goal right now is to make the 2013 Saucony Hurricane Team.  In order to even apply, I have to run a qualifying time in the 2012 calendar year.  We are 2/3 through November and I find myself with my back against the wall and the clock winding down. I’ve been hesitant to discuss […]

Remembering How to Run Uncomfortably

First real "race" postpartum

I am slowly starting to feel more and more like myself when I run.  I’m not at my pre-pregnancy shape or pace (and don’t expect to be there for some time), but I feel stronger each day I run. Since my son was born (almost 2 months ago!!!), I have tried to take it one […]

Race Recap / Review: Runner’s World Half Marathon & Festival Weekend 10k

Runner's World Half & Festival

The Runner’s World 10k was my first “race” post-baby.  I wasn’t completely racing it as I am still trying to be patient with my return and not over-exert my body before it’s ready…but I certainly pushed myself harder than I have in 10 months! Although the course description and profile didn’t sound or look too hilly, it […]

Short Term Race Plans

Runner's World Half & Festival

After 8 months of comfortable, easy running, I am anxious to have a race on the calendar, to start training for something…As I said in an earlier post, running for fun/pleasure is great, but I love having something to focus on and push towards. So with that said, this is what the remainder of 2012 […]
