On Sunday, October 9th, I ran the B.A.A. Half Marathon in Boston. This was the third and last race of the B.A.A. Distance Medley, which consisted of a 5k, 10k, and now the half. I've been wanting to run this half marathon for a while, so I was really excited. A few of my coworkers were also… Continue reading B.A.A. Half Marathon
I'm trying something new this marathon training cycle, and so far I LOVE it! Guess what it is? NO MUSIC. I haven't listened to music while working out since the beginning of June. I found that whenever I was doing a hard workout, like a long run or hill repeats, I relied on loud, fast… Continue reading Something New I’m Trying…

I began training for this marathon in mid-February after dealing with an IT band injury. Because I had been planning to begin in… Continue reading Providence Marathon Recap
I was so excited for the Boston Marathon on Monday, and I wasn't even running it! The weather forecast called for blue sky and temperatures in the 60's, which is great for spectators but a little warm for runners. Because it was Marathon Monday/Patriots' Day, neither Kyle nor I had work. So I started my… Continue reading Marathon Monday
