I don’t really know what or how to share right now. It’s still pretty unbelievable. I am out of the country for work, and I was out to dinner with two colleagues on Monday evening. We stepped outside the restaurant to walk back to our hotel, and I realized that my phone had multiple emails […]

I ran a 5K last weekend. The Miss Santa 5K, which I ran last year, and which was the first ‘real’ 5K I ran. I started running again in preparation for this year’s race a few weeks ago, but prior to that I hadn’t run since April. Oh, also I was pretty jet lagged, having […]

Lesson #580

It’s surprising how much easier it is to go for a run when you’re not carrying 25-odd pounds of baggage on your body. Not saying that I … enjoyed … it. I’m just saying it wasn’t quite as horrific as I’d anticipated, given that the last time I went for a run was in APRIL. […]

15 Days

… until I run another 5K! UGH. I don’t know why but I have been seriously not feeling the running vibe lately. I don’t know whether it’s my body rebelling, if I needed some recovery time, if I’m just in a funk or what. It has been a real struggle to get out there and […]

And We’re Off

First things first– I recently discovered this photo on my computer. Isn’t it the cutest thing ever???? Second things second– I forced myself to go running yesterday so I could finish up “Week 6” of the C25K program. I’m using it as a general guide to help me get back into the running mode, even […]

Back to the Races

So, I ended up taking a break of nearly 2.5 months, but I’m back to the grind– I’ll be running the Boston BAA 5K in mid-April. Ah. Can I just say, trying to get back into running after taking a break is the worst ever! I feel like I’ve lost all my stamina. No lie, […]

Another (5K) Bites the Dust

This has been an interesting weekend. Yesterday I woke up at 11 and didn’t change out of my pjs until 5 pm. It was pretty awesome, if I do say so myself. Today I woke up, threw on a sweatshirt, wrapped myself up with gloves, scarf and headgear, and headed downtown for the Miss Santa […]

Run Rabbit

Just wanted to quickly say that I ran for 40 minutes today! Yes that’s right. I guess all that strength training and (not running) is paying off. I signed myself up for another 5K this weekend, so I figured I should probably run at least once before Sunday rolls around. Now, I’m still going to […]

Today, I joined a gym. Today, I learned that it’s a lot easier to run on a treadmill than outside (especially when you can watch The Jersey Shore while doing so). Today, I ran for 25 minutes straight. Yes, I ran very slowly. Yes, this is nowhere near the speed I need to run to […]

Plod. Plod.

I learned many things in grad school. ‘Deliverables’ means homework, I can survive for 6+ months on 4 hours of sleep a night, and ‘deep six’ doesn’t necessarily mean exactly what might first come to mind. One very important fact I learned was that I am a stress eater. Yes, ’tis true. I get stressed […]
