Getting Ready to Reach the Beach!

Good morning! As I’ve mentioned, later this week I will be participating in the Massachusetts Reach the Beach Relay with 11 fellow bloggers (and friends). Over 24 hours we will run 200 miles between the 12 of us! The race starts on Friday morning; I’ll be flying up to Boston on Thursday. Our team name is “Off Balance” in honor of our Continue Reading …

A Trail 6 Miler

Hello, hello! I had a fabulous 6 mile trail run with my friend Ashley this morning! When we had dinner on Sunday night, Ashley was telling me about this cool trail she found that branches off from the W&OD trail in Vienna, near where she lives. I was excited to check it out and we made plans to meet there this morning. It was a bit of a Continue Reading …

9 Beautiful Miles & My Favorite Brunch

Morning, friends! Matt and I have been having such an awesome weekend here in Chapel Hill. Beautiful weather! We started out our Saturday with a run. I had 9 miles on the docket with Elle for Tarheel 10 Miler training (it’s in 2 weeks)! We hit up the Tobacco Trail (scene of my Tobacco Road Half Marathon PR a couple weeks ago) for our run.

Sometimes, Running is Hard.

Morning! Today was one of those days when running was hard. Getting myself out the door was hard, and actually running felt hard, too. But I did it! As you guys know from my little “upcoming races” feature on the sidebar, I’m running the Tarheel 10 Miler on April 21 — in 3 weeks. Normally, after a half marathon (I just ran the Tobacco Continue Reading …

Exercise Game Plan for Pre-Half Marathon Week!

Yesterday evening I had a running date with my grad school buddy Lauren! Apparently we both got the blue tank top memo. (Jenny, thank you for my new Under Armour tank top! I loved it — especially the racer back cut. Super comfy!) I was actually supposed to run with a blogger buddy (which is why I was running in the evening — you guys know Continue Reading …

7 Miles with a New Friend

I made a new friend yesterday! Sierra is a fellow blogger and blog reader; she lives in South Africa but is currently in the Chapel Hill area for a couple months with her husband for work. She commented on my solo 10 miler post a couple weeks ago asking if I’d like to meet up for a run sometime, and of course I said yes! I love meeting Continue Reading …

11 Miles & New Balance GPS Watch Giveaway!

Hello and happy Friday! Today is a happy day because: 1) I am officially on “spring break” from grad school! I’ll be spending the break in DC with Matt looking for apartments (we move back in 2 months — gah!) and getting wedding stuff done instead of partying on a tropical island, but I’m still excited for a breather, especially after 2 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 …
