Marine Corps Marathon 20 Mile Training Run

Yesterday morning, I ran 20 miles for the first time in nearly 3 years! Wow. Last time I ran that far was when training for/running the LA Marathon back in March 2014 (before that was the Richmond Marathon, my first full marathon, in November 2013). I’ve been traveling a TON the past couple months, as you guys know, which has been awesome but Continue Reading …

Tough Long Run Recap + Friday Link Love

I feel like every training cycle there’s that one especially crazy hard run – the one that feels way worse than all the others. The one that has you basically crawling the last couple miles. The one that makes you ask yourself: “why the hell am I doing this again?!” You guys know I try to keep things positive over here because I’m a big believer Continue Reading …

Eats + Exercise

Hey guys! Summer is back once again – it’s been a hot week over here! Come on fall, where are you…?! Tuesday morning wasn’t quite as hot yet, though – which was good because I was out at the track! We had a longer interval tempo workout on the docket – three 2000’s (5 laps around the track – 1.25 miles) with 1 to 2 minutes rest in between. Continue Reading …

Marathon Training Long Run Success!

Hey guys! I’m happy to report that I ended up having a great long run yesterday! As I mentioned Tuesday, I was debating whether to do my long run Wednesday or Thursday (we leave really early Friday morning for a weekend trip so I wanted to get it out of the way), and I was also nervous about my right leg since it’s been bothering me. (Last week, Continue Reading …
