    Race day is just ONE WEEK away! Ahhhhh! ONE WEEK. Holy crap. So I mentioned my kick-butt marathon playlist that helped me PR my recent 5K over the weekend, and I wanted to share it with you guys because it really is an awesome running mix.

    Hey, hey! I ran a 5K road race with the lovely ladies of KFIT this morning and, surprisingly, I pulled off a PR! Woohoo! It felt pretty awesome, especially 9 days before the marathon. Yayyyyyy! We signed up for the Marshfield St. Patrick’s Day 5K, but because of the ridiculous amount of snow back in March, it was postponed until today. And […]

    Woohoo! It’s officially taper time! My wonderful and amazing friend Monica flew out from California to run my last long run with me. (Now that’s a GREAT friend, right!?) I had 20 miles on my training plan (well, technically, 3:00) and we thought it would be fun to do a race together, so we ran the Duxbury […]

    First things first: Brooks Lobster Launch 2! OMG, THESE SHOES! There are LOBSTERS on them. Lobsters! BOSTON lobsters! I am so in love. Recreated to represent the spirit of the famed race, the Lobster Launch 2 features patterned imagery of the lobster and a blue ocean midsole as an ode to the Atlantic Ocean that banks […]
