Good morning my friends, and happy National Running Day! There really is a holiday for everything, huh? Today is a rest day for me since I’m gearing up for the big Heartbreak Hill Half & Festival this weekend in Boston, so instead I’ll celebrate by recapping my fun trail run on Sunday with my buddy Ashley.

Hello, hello! Matt and I stayed in DC again this past weekend (crazy, I know!) and we were lucky enough to have another gorgeous couple days of weather.

Exciting news, my friends: the Washington Monument is officially back open for business! It went under construction after being damaged in an earthquake back in 2011 and there have been fences around it and lots of scaffolding ever since, so you weren’t able to get close to it.

Well, my friends, apparently DC has decided it’s summer already. In what feels like a very sudden change, everything is now green and the air is heavy and humid. Is it bad that I almost, just for a second on this morning’s run, had this thought: “I kind of miss the polar vortex.” I mean, I don’t miss it in real life – I’m loving Continue Reading …

Good morning, friends! It’s Monday again already, but I can’t complain – this weekend was a blast. Lots of activity, friend time, Matt time, family time, and sunshine. :) Matt and I kept things nice and low key on Friday night; we took a post-work walk to enjoy the beautiful evening and then parked ourselves on the couch the rest of the Continue Reading …

Well, my friends, another half marathon – #10! – is in the books for me, and Matt has officially become a half marathoner! On Sunday morning, we ran the Pittsburgh Half Marathon with my brother Steve and a bunch of friends. Until recently, I didn’t think Matt would ever be interested in doing a half marathon – he’s a speedy runner Continue Reading …
