Broad Street, Round 3

I am SO EXCITED! This year, I will run the Blue Cross Broad Street Run for the 3rd time!

The Broad Street Run is a 10 mile race and it will be the 36th year this May. It was my very first double digit mileage race back in 2010 and I loved every minute of it! (Even if they didn’t give out medals until 2011!)

Race Plans: AC April Fool’s Day Half Marathon & 7K

It all started so innocently. I was on the registration website, signing up for the Atlantic City April Fool’s Day 7K with a discount code I got for doing the Atlantic City 10K back in October. I was scrolling through the registration options, and I said jokingly to Rob that I could register for the Fool’s Challenge: run the 7K on Saturday and the Half

Philadelphia Half Marathon 2014

Today was the big day! The Philadelphia Half Marathon! This was my first time running this race (I’ve done the Philadelphia Rock’n’Roll half before but not the city one), so I will try to talk a bit more about the details of the race.

I went on Friday after doing a quick stop at school for a weekly thing I always miss. I was also

Just Keep Going

Hey everyone!  I have a quick break but can’t take too long because things are CRAZY right now!  You might have noticed my lack of blogging lately and that is because school is just too insane to take the time away from my work.  I wanted to just stop in and say hello though! 

Obviously I have lots of school work happening but I’m

Finding My Running Legs

I’m just not into it lately. I’m exhausted and stressed out (what else is new?) and I don’t want to feel like I have to workout. I enjoy running unless I feel like I am forcing it and lately it has felt forced. This weekend, I planned on running for 2 hours and I just didn’t want to. I was feeling really overwhelmed and I

5 Weeks to Philly Half Marathon

We all know I’ve been struggling to exercise lately. I get workouts in here and there but it isn’t enough, especially with the Philadelphia Half Marathon on the calendar next month! Well, here is my last ditch effort to train for that half marathon if it is the last thing I do.

I’m not going to go into my planning details for this but

Atlantic City 10K 2014

This past weekend, I participated in my 5th Atlantic City Race Series event! This is obviously one of my favorite events (and their April Fool’s Day event also) but more on that later.

Friday night, I headed out to the expo, which is always small but efficient. Packet pick-up was super easy. They emailed us our bib numbers ahead of time so that we could

Up and Running

Hey everyone! It has been a busy week around and I’ve been feeling really run down. We’re about mid way through the semester so everything is getting crazy. Lots of work, lots of studying, lots of research, little sleep.

So on Saturday, with everything piling up, I decided to stay home from rugby! I love being there for Rob but I really needed a day
