One Year Later…

Hi Friends!!

So I realized the other day that it’s been about a year since my first post!  I’m coming up again on the Trick-or-Trot 5k with the Orioles, which was my first fitness post! Continue reading “One Year Later…”

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!”

I’m not really sure how it happened, but I was out running, and felt a little twinge in my foot, but kept running anyway. It went away, so I figured it was nothing. That night, I was walking around town, and my foot hurt, but again, I just figured it was because I had run in the morning, and I was wearing flat sandals. On the next day, I went out for a 2-mile run, and when I got home, I could hardly walk it hurt so much. Continue reading “Injury”

So I was surfing Pinterest this morning, a now typical-Saturday habit while I eat breakfast, and came across an article someone had pinned, 7 Things People Don’t Tell You About Exercise (or something like that). Well, I took the bait and read the post and realized there’s one point that really stands out for me. Continue reading “Problems”
