Hello and good morning! How was your weekend? Any great adventures or long runs to report? I got in my longest training run for LA Marathon training – my 20 miler!

13.1 Tough Miles

Good morning, my friends! I hope you all had nice weekends. Matt and I ended up staying in DC over the weekend after all and postponing our NC visit for a couple weeks. We were held up on Friday with work and such and Matt also had a cold, so we didn’t want to go and get our nephew sick! I was bummed we weren’t going but it was good to be here Continue Reading …

A Freezing Run + Exciting Running News!

Hello and happy Monday! I got in my first run of the new year yesterday – a freezing cold and rainy ~13-ish miler with my friends Kathleen and Rachel. On Saturday night, the forecast for Sunday morning was looking bleak – high 30s and freezing rain. Yikes. I texted Kathleen to make sure we were still a go, and we were. Good thing I have running Continue Reading …

Obviously doing one marathon Continue Reading …
