Well, it’s almost here. A lot of people have been asking about logistics, so here’s what I know so far: DURING THE RACE My bib number is 28,999 (this is also available by using the participant search feature on the BAA website). I am in wave 4, corral 5. Wave 4 is scheduled to start… Continue reading Race Day Logistics!
Group getting ready to head out! I’m not usually one to pat myself on the back. But after my run on Saturday, I’m doing it. Saturday was the longest run I’ve done to date, 14 miles. Next to the actual Marathon, this is the day that I had circled on my training calendar as being a… Continue reading I Am So. Freaking. Proud of Myself.

I got my training plan from my team’s running coaches before Thanksgiving, and with… Continue reading Gentle(wo)men, Start Your Engines!

And by you all,… Continue reading Cambridge Half Recap, A Training Plan and My First Injury?!
For those of you that don’t know, yesterday was the New York City Marathon. The biggest marathon in the world, NYC hosts over 50,000 (!!!) runners and is one of the world majors. I got to feel a piece of that energy this past March when I (along with 20,000 other runners) completed the NYC… Continue reading OK, I’m Officially Excited…
