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 weather was expected to be beautiful, and tons of people I follow on Instagram were heading to Boston for the big race.

I met up with… Continue reading Charlotte, NC – Marathon & Girls’ Weekend
The day after the B.A.A. Half Marathon, I ran the Tufts Health Plan 10K for Women. I know...it might sound a little (or very) crazy, but I love the runner's high. So why not?! The 10K took place on Columbus Day at the Boston Common, and unlike on Sunday, it was blue sky. It was… Continue reading Tufts Health Plan 10K for Women
