19 Goals for 2019! (+Website Restoration update)

Life

Hi Friends:) For the past week, I’ve been doing a bit of reconnaissance on this blog. Here’s what I believe happened, in my extremely un-trained words: A¬†Wordpress plugin¬†malfunction resulted in about a dozen full backup files being saved to my URL’s disc space last June. With the disc space nearly full, the backup application then […]

The Worst.

Life

You know what’s the worst? Signing on to your blog to draft out a long-anticipated update and then having your entire website crash and burn when you clicked “okay” on an update. It could have been worse, but not much; My backup plugin had stopped functioning back in June for some reason, and so I […]

Toronto Waterfront Marathon 2018 Race Recap!

Life

Marathon #3 is in the books! A Little Background: I was actually supposed to run the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon back in 2017, but when I was diagnosed with a stress fracture in June 2017, I was sadly forced to defer my race for a year. I’d chosen Toronto Waterfront because it has an amazing […]

Summer 2018: A Highlight Reel

Life

(This is a brief re-write of a post that was destroyed in the great disc-space crash of ReadWriteRun in December 2018. It was re-written using the photo folders and notes from the original post. Enjoy! ) This. Summer. Was. Awesome. This was the first year I didn’t work or take classes over the summer; and […]

MAY GOALS!!


Life, Running

Hi Friends:) It is currently 90 degrees in Boston. Coincidentally, I was wearing a winter jacket ten days ago. How is this a thing? How? But it’s also a new month, and it’s time for me to set some goals! I did pretty well with last month’s goals; The only one I didn’t meet was […]

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 […]
