Oh man, I’ve been so bad with posting lately! I blame it on the puppy. This is yesterday’s 5 mile run. It was not as easy as I would have liked, but I did it. Tomorrow i do Fartleks. Whatever those are…

104.2 miles to go!


That’s right, 7 miles in just over an hour. Take that! It was a rough run, and I was in pain for part of it, but the first 3 miles felt pretty good. However, I think I accelerated too much in mile 3 and it made the rest of the run rough. Note to self: figure out a way to be faster slower (does that even make sense??)…

109.2 miles to go!


Got up early this morning to walk the pup and then do my 5-mile interval training. I did it, guys! I was surprised, as this week has been a SLAP in the face. I didn’t realize how much work it was going to be to have to: work, take care of a dog, train for a marathon, perform musical improv, sleep, and live. I fell off the map the past two days because I’m back on my normal work schedule (just for the week), and I was NOT prepared for it!! So, please forgive me. 

I’m proud I got this done though! And to top it all off, I actually enjoyed the interval training!!

116.2 miles to go!


Today’s 4 mile run. The whole time I thought I was running way slower than I actually was. And it was hot. It felt miserable, but it got done. 

121.5 miles to go!


Glad I ran 6 miles on Friday because this morning I wanted to sleep in, and then I just didn’t feel like running 6 miles…so 4 it was!! 

I can now enjoy my 3-course lunch at David Burke’s Townhouse (for $24.07 - thanks Restaurant Week!) guilt-free!! 

125.5 miles to go!


NBD, just ran 10K even though I only had 4 miles on the schedule. It was right in the middle of a rain break and was crazy cool for summertime. It’s quite ridiculous how much that darn temperature affects my speed! Anyways, may only do 4 miles Sunday now. We’ll see!

129.6 miles to go!

Today’s 4 mile marathon training run. It was not the most fun run. The humidity was not my friend this morning, but I got it done! BAM! Take that, humidity!

135.8 miles to go!


Not sure if it was the heat or the fact that it was my third day running in a row…but this one was a killer. I was working hard to convince myself to keep going. Guess it worked!

139.8 miles to go!


This morning’s 6 mile run. It wasn’t too hot at all, but my goodness did the humidity feel terrible for the first half of the run! Then, when the sun came out in full force it seemed like the humidity went down (or I just got used to it). Happy with this pace though!

143.8 miles to go!


This morning’s run…I’ve been off my routine since the wee one has come into my life. Still, had a good (if late) run this AM! 

149.9 miles to go!
