• Hi, friends!

    Another two weeks of marathon training are in the books! And I’m getting close to taper time, which is both exciting and nerve-wracking. My taper is actually only two weeks, which is quite a bit different than my previous marathon plans, but, hey, you gotta trust your training and that’s exactly what I am doing. Last week was a much-needed de-load week with lower mileage, but things are amping up once again with another 3:00 run and likely the highest mileage of my training next week. But, after that, it’s officially tamper time. Yeehaw! I’m in the homestretch!

    Hi, friends! How’s your Thursday going so far? I just got back from a glorious 90-minute run (9.67 miles), which was outside and actually semi-warm (upper 40s). Holy cow, it was amazing. Seriously, it was so nice to not have to run through snow and slush while dealing with cold hands, frozen cheeks, and scary I’m-running-in-the-road […]

    Interview With Rebecca Zamolo, Star of ‘INSIDE/OUT: My Battle with IBD’

    March 26, 2015

    Remember how I blogged about Rebecca Zamolo last week? She’s the woman who made a documentary about her experience with Ulcerative Colitis and adjusting to life with an ostomy bag. Well, her publicist contacted me and offered me an interview with her and, of course, I jumped at the chance. Her story resonated with me so […]

It was a constant struggle for me to […]
