Wildwood 8K 2017

This weekend was yet another race! I just can’t seem to stop registering for them! Emily and I decided kind of last minute to register for this one and we are totally happy we did! We had a choice of 3 races: 5K (on Saturday), 8K, or half marathon (both on Sunday). We decided to go with the 8K since we didn’t feel like running

April Fool’s 7K 2017

Just a quick little race recap. I’ve written about this race before and not much has changed so I’ll skip some of the details.

April Fool’s 7K 2012 April Fool’s 7K and Half Marathon 2015

It is run by the Atlantic City Race Series group that also organizes the Atlantic City Marathon that is in October. One major bonus this year is that I

Philly Hot Chocolate 15K 2017

Well, the month of March completely got away from me! I’m not making any blogging promises but here I am, trying again. Let’s just jump right in then, okay? RACE RECAP!

This past Saturday was the Philadelphia Hot Chocolate 15K. I signed up because my friend Emily raved about it after running it multiple times. It doesn’t take much to convince me but the

Start of 2017 Race Training

I mentioned briefly in my last post that I was registered for two races this coming April, the Philly Hot Chocolate 15K and the Atlantic City April Fool’s Half Marathon. Today, I also put my name in the Broad Street Run lottery to try to do that race in May. It is a 10 Miler and I’ve run it 3 times before already. It is

New Race on the Calendar!

I might have gone a little insane yesterday. I signed up for the Atlantic City Marathon Neptune Challenge – Run the AC 10K on Saturday, October 22 and then the AC Half Marathon on Sunday October 23!

I’ve done this kind of race before (AC April Fool’s Day Jester’s Challenge 2015). I had a much better fitness base to work with then, but barely

Running Slowly Again

Today officially marks the start of my new journey into running! I’ve made a training schedule for the next 7 months, all leading up to the Philadelphia Rock’N’Roll Half Marathon September 18th. The schedule is very slow and gradual but I don’t want to rush anything.

I decided to string together multiple race training plans and chose 3 plans from HalHigdon.com. I’ve been using his

Rocking My Fitness Challenge

Good morning! Today marks the half way point in my 8 week fitness challenge with my Facebook Group! I’ve been doing pretty well with the challenge. My goal was to exercise 5 days per week:

The yellow check marks are rest days (since I get 2 per week, any more than that got a red x).

Considering that I was averaging about 2

Starting Over Running Style

Now that school is out, I have plenty of time to get fit, right? But, like most people, I feel a little paralyzed without a plan. I was also feeling overwhelmed by the options to get fit. Do I use my workout DVDs? Do I just run a whole lot? Where do I start?

Finally, I decided I really like to run and would like
