IMG_1569_thumb.jpg

Good morning, friends! Boy, was I sore yesterday after Sunday’s Tobacco Road Half Marathon! I’m still pretty sore today! Normal walking is okay, but going down stairs? Yikes. Scary sight: I definitely utilized the hobby/sideways shuffle down the stairs approach. :) Thankfully, though, I’m just super sore — nothing hurts or feels Continue Reading …

Back in the District

Hello from DC! It’s nice to be back in my old stomping groups — and especially my favorite running trail, the C&O Canal. My dad and I hit up the trail for a nice late morning run today. Great running weather out there! We did 5 miles in 40:45 — with negative splits, meaning we got faster as we went. Splits: Mile 1: 8:52 Continue Reading …

A Sluggish 10 Mile Training Run

Good morning! How is it Monday again already?! Weekends just go by way too fast around here. Yesterday, before taking my friend Jessica to the airport, we headed out to the Tobacco Trail in Durham for a workout. I had 10 miles on the docket (for my Tobacco Road Half Marathon, Tarheel 10 Miler, and Reach the Beach Relay training!), and Continue Reading …

Miami by Foot & New Balance Running Skirt Review

Good morning! I’m back in Chapel Hill (aka the frozen tundra — it got COLD since I left, and was even snowing when I drove home last night from the airport at midnight — quite the rude awakening!) after a great weekend in Miami with Matt. Let’s rewind to Saturday, shall we? Matt and I started our day with breakfast in the hotel Continue Reading …

Welcome to part 2 of my weekend adventures in Athens, GA! Miss part 1? See that first. :) After our long training run on Saturday, we enjoyed a lunch feast at Lauren’s house!

Saturday Morning 8 Miler + Brunch

Good morning and happy Sunday! I hope you’re all enjoying your weekends. Mine started off yesterday morning with my first real training run of the year — 8 miles!

Dreary Run & Comfort Food

Good morning! We’ve got another rainy, cold day over here on this Monday. But at least the rain stopped yesterday so I could go out for a run! It was cold — “35 but feels like 27,” according to weather.com. I ALMOST considered running on the treadmill since I didn’t have anyone to run with me (Elle and I were supposed to do a 6 miler Continue Reading …

A Speedy 5 Miler + Brunch

Awesome run yesterday morning with my college BFF Turner! Yes, we’re weird. Turner, Kris, and I headed over to the Tobacco Trail in Durham for a late morning run. Kris set off on her own (she prefers running by herself and wanted to go with a slower pace), and Turner and I started out at what felt like a good clip. The first mile flew by; it Continue Reading …
