HALF Marathon Training Monday + My Race Calendar:)


Life, Running

Hi Friends,   So I took a bit of a social media-detox this past week and thus have no pictures from my workouts to offer you. I needed it, though; I’d been fundraising since october, and that project required constant social media upkeep. It was such a joy to just move my body without having […]

6 Friday Favorites!! for the first time in forever….


Life

Hi Friends:) Did anyone else get the Frozen reference in my title?!? So, I totally bonked on blogging this week. It was a super weird week, tbh; coming back to school from such an action-packed break was truly a shock to the system. I had a ton of paperwork due right when we came back, […]

This Week in Recovery


Life, Running

Hi Friends! Sorry it’s been a while since my last post. Post-marathon, I headed up to Toronto to visit my brother and his family. It was a ton of fun, and blogging was the last thing on my mind. Recovery, however, was very much on my mind. My Boston Marathon last Monday was super fun […]

Boston Marathon 2018: X-TREME EDITION


Life, Running

Hi Friends:) So, I’m super excited to share with you my BOSTON MARATHON RECAP! In case you missed it, Boston was hit by yet another full-on Nor’Easter during the marathon yesterday. So throughout my time along the course, I was hit with 25mph winds, heavy rain/sleet, and a wind-chill factor that made the already chilly […]

My Pre-Race Week Routine!


Running

  Hi Friends! So, I have run quite a few races. Like, I think this coming Monday’s Boston Marathon will be my 21st race in 5.5 years. Ten of those races have been half marathons, and one a full marathon, so I have my pre-distance run routine down at this point. When I first started […]

Boston Marathon Training Monday #24: Tapering Blues


Life, Running

Hi Friends:) So this past week finally felt like I was really tapering, and I already feel like I must be doing something wrong. Like, for real. How is it that you spend 6 months running and strengthening and pushing yourself… then for 15 days before a race you just like, lay around and occasionally […]

APRIL GOALS!


Life, Reading, Running

Hi Friends:) Just dropping in to tell you about a few goals I’ve set for myself this month!! Focus on Core Work: I’ve been neglecting my core work throughout this marathon training season, and I am starting to feel it. I’m going to try to do an ab routine daily this month…so far, so good!  […]

Teacher Tuesday: Let’s Talk About Phones


Life, Reading, Writing

Let’s talk about phones and education, kay? I am having a rough year when it comes to student cell phone use. I have a clear policy (although my school and district do not, which concerns me…). I contact parents, and I have designated spots where phones should be kept during class time. But today’s teenagers […]
