Today marks one month from the Baystate Marathon, and I’m feeling good. I feel recovered both mentally and physically. And even though it has been a month, when I do think about Baystate, I get that “runner’s high” feeling. It was such a fun race, and setting a PR really pumped me up for spring…… Continue reading Post-Marathon Blues?
You’ve probably heard me mention that I “tape my watch” during races, and judge my pace based off the feel of my legs. It’s something I’ve been doing for just over a year, and it’s worked wonders for not only my running, but also my mind. Before each race, I literally put two strips of…… Continue reading Why I Tape my Garmin Watch during Races
This past Sunday, I ran the Baystate Marathon in Lowell, MA. Every fall, two of my college friends (Katie and Sarah) and I run a marathon together.

Even though I’ve been on “summer vacation” these past couple months, July was very…… Continue reading Summer Training Update

If you’re new to my blog and haven’t read about Robert and the significance behind this race, please read here. Having completed the Leadville Trail Heavy Half Marathon…… Continue reading Leadville Thoughts and Goals
The New Jersey Marathon is one of the races I’ll look back on and think about how if you really want something badly enough, you will get there. The marathon was just two days after my 26th birthday, and I was so excited that my birthday weekend was going to be all about running. Some…… Continue reading New Jersey Marathon
