Broad Street Run 2015

This past weekend was the 36th annual Blue Cross Broad Street Run! I ran this race in 2010 and 2011, back when it was 10,000 people smaller and a bit simpler.

2011

You could just register for the event back then and show up on race day. After, in 2012, it sold out in 5 hours, they went to a

April Fool’s Day Fool’s Challenge 7K & Half Marathon

I ran 17.45 miles this weekend.

Technically it was a run/walk but still, I can’t believe it ! I’m not even that sore surprisingly. But more on that later…

This weekend, I ran the Atlantic City April Fool’s Day Fool’s Challenge which consisted of a 7K on Saturday and a half marathon on Sunday. There was also the option to do the Jester’s Challenge

Slushy Run

Why on earth did I see this is my driveway this morning and think “looks like a good day for a run!”??

I think it was the lure of the 37º showing on my weather app. I drove 1 town over to see if they had plowed their bike pike like they usually do and all was good! There were only a few sections

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
