I apologize that it has been so long since my last post, but with Boston falling at the end of the semester I have all of my final presentations/projects due early. 20 days. We are so close. This past weekend I finished my last long run (yay!) and I am currently in the taper zone! … Continue reading Digging Deep
Well here we are! Tomorrow will be exactly 30 days until race day! Every time I am training for a marathon it is always at this point where I struggle. I have logged three 18 milers (one more 18-20 miler to go!) and have been training since the week after Christmas, so needless to say … Continue reading The Month Before Boston.
Six weeks until the BOSTON MARATHON! I still cannot believe I am going. It has been over a year since I ran the race that qualified me for the 2017 Boston Marathon and here we are, it's 2017 and 41 days out from race day. Surreal. This past weekend I had 13 miles and if … Continue reading Six Weeks and Spaghetti Squash!
I am bringing you a FABULOUS gluten-free banana bread recipe which was inspired by one of my favorite cook books (Run Fast Eat Slow), but due to being out of some ingredients, I had to make some swaps. So I present to you...(drum roll please)... banana oat almond bread! And they are just as good … Continue reading #RunFastEatSlow
I survived. Just barely, but it still counts. Since the last time I posted, the chaos stuck around and actually got worse. By the time I came home Friday I was toast. I am happily looking forward to this next week of no schedule and deadlines. With only 7 weeks left until Boston, I had … Continue reading Spring Break & Self-Care!
Usually I run my marathons at the beginning of semesters because it's a lot of time and hard work. Heck -I am currently logging more hours training than I am working. The combo of 15 grad level credits, balancing 3 group projects, attempting to work a part-time job, and train for the Boston Marathon is … Continue reading Complete Chaos
Sunday's for me mean rest and recovery, oh and also lots of tea! I tend to stay in my pj's ALL day and catch up on homework while preparing for another full week ahead. I spent my morning drinking my favorite green tea, starting a paper, and clicking through the channels because this grad student … Continue reading Sunday Slow Down
Hi again! Well I am just about halfway finished with week 4 of Boston training and so far so good! I had a long run of 14 miles on Saturday which went over better than expected. I think the hardest part about training during the winter (for me at least) is leaving my warm home … Continue reading Baby Steps to Boston
Hi everyone! So I know it has been an extremely long time since I've connected with my blog, but you can never predict how busy college can be! If you check out my updated "About" page, you can see the big transition I made in 2016 regarding my "college career". I am going to take … Continue reading Back in Action!
A fantastic weekend of running is in the books and the weather turned out to be great for both of my races! On Friday night I ran the Hightail to Ale 5k in Detroit with my friend and it was my first beer run! It was awesome being downtown and in the city atmosphere again. … Continue reading A Fabulous Weekend of Racing!
