    Hello! This is Monica from RunEatRepeat! You should check it out if you like running or eating. OR watermelon-loving, red-headed Mexicans, which is a very specific market, so I’m hoping you are one of the three people on this earth who are into that sorta thing. Anyway. I started RunEatRepeat to document training for my […]

    Candy Cane Forest

    December 24, 2010


    I thought this morning’s run would never, ever end! I felt like I “passed through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest, through the sea of swirly twirly gum drops, and then walked through the Lincoln Tunnel.” Seriously, it was so tough.

    Spirit of the Marathon

    December 12, 2010


    I’m such a sap when it comes to marathon stuff. I get teary-eyed at the Boston Marathon every single year, I almost cried (tears of happiness) when I finished 18 miles last weekend, and I can barely read my favorite running quotes without getting a little choked-up thinking about my own upcoming marathon. So, I […]
