Am I crazy?

Friends.  I think I might need help.

I apologize for keeping you out of the loop, because I ran two races a couple weeks ago!  I ran my second half marathon, the Rock ‘n’ Roll half in DC, followed by the Baltimore Shamrock 5k the next day.  And I PRed in both races! Continue reading “Am I crazy?”

Resolutions

Happy New Year!!
First, apologies for the lack of updates recently. As I explained in my previous post about sleep, and what I’ll also detail below, I’ve had quite a bit going on. Here’s to a new year with more blog posts! Continue reading “Resolutions”

Baltimore Running Festival!

It’s here! Tomorrow is my first half marathon race. I’m kind of in awe that I’ve actually made it this far, and that I can cross off probably my loftiest goal/New Year’s resolution.

My goal is to finish the face under 2:30 – my Charles St. 12 race time was 2:00:05, but this race is supposed to be harder… so I’m hoping that’s a reasonable goal. Continue reading “Baltimore Running Festival!”

Charles St. 12

Hey friends!! I have no excuses this time around. Sorry for neglecting you!

Earlier this month, I completed the Charles St. 12 race! This race was one of my goals for a very long time – if you had asked me in March if I were to be running it, I would have said, “HA, yeah, right.” I am still kind of amazed I finished it! I had thought about this race for the past two years as a goal race to shoot for and now, I’m so proud of myself for having done it! (And having signed up for next year!)

Running Group Update

Hey there friends! So it’s been a crazy month / six weeks. Starting the new job, moving and joining the running group has made for a kind of ridiculous schedule. Thankfully though, things are starting to calm down and I’m settling into a new version of a normal schedule. Continue reading “Running Group Update”

Running

So it’s been a couple weeks since I made my declaration to run a half marathon this year.  And I haven’t made too much progress toward that goal like I had said I was going to…

Then I got a very timely email from a local running store, Charm City Run, that was advertising their training running groups.  One of these training groups was targeted for a 10k taking place on June 4th.  I figured this was perfect.  If I complete this 10k, then I can start the training for a half marathon I want to do in October.
