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

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

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

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
