Weekend Fun + Fit Foodie 5k Fairfax Race Recap

Hey friends! I hope you all had great weekends! Ours was fun but very soggy – it poured all day on Saturday and Sunday. Bummer! Friday was beautiful, though, so Matt and I took advantage and kicked off the weekend with a nice stroll and an al fresco dinner at Rustico. I love their market salad – the chew of the barley, the chopped lacinato kale, Continue Reading …

Middlebury Maple Run Half Marathon Race Recap

Yesterday, I ran my 18th (whoa) half marathon: the Middlebury Maple Run in Vermont! It’s totally insane to me that I’ve done so many half marathons – I still remember running 6 miles for the first time ever back in 2009 when I was training for my first Army Ten Miler. It’s amazing what your body (and mind) can get used to – and how much I’ve Continue Reading …

Cherry Blossom 10 Miler 2016 Race Recap

Well, my friends: I did it! I finally got my new 10 miler PR!! 10 miles in 1:17:34 – a 7:45 minute mile pace. Woo!!!

Above post-race with my track buddy Diane and Continue Reading …

I love racing but sometimes it’s fun to do races without worrying about pace and with Continue Reading …

Clarendon Day 10k Race Recap

On Saturday, Matt and I ran the Clarendon Day 10k, and I set myself a new 10k race PR (personal record)!! This was my third time doing the 10k (fourth time doing the race series – remember last year when my friend and I ran the 5k by accident?) and I always enjoy it. It’s convenient, not too big, and well organized. It’s also a great race for Continue Reading …
