    It’s the second day of Spring and it snowed this morning. I am so over it. The pug is too. Doesn’t his expression just say it all. Over it. Despite the snow, I still had a run planned with my friend Marisa. Pre-run eats: Sweet potato oatmeal with walnuts, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, and apple butter. We […]

    Guys, I did it. I survived 20 miles! Woohoo! I actually ended up running longer than 3:00, but I just really wanted to hit that 20 mile mark, ya know? And, boy, it felt great when I did! Fuel for run: GU + Nuun. I ate 3 out of the 4 GU (one every 45 minutes), […]

    Boston Marathon Training weeks 9 and 10

    Hi, friends! The weeks are really starting to dwindle down to marathon day. Of course, I am super excited, but I am nervous at the same time. Ahhh! So many butterflies! After my 17-miler earlier this week, I was feeling pretty good, but then I started to think about the remaining mileage in the race. There are still 9+ miles to the finish line. […]

    Hi, guys! Happy Monday! I’m feeling a tad exhausted this morning after completing CrossFit Open WOD 15.1 on Friday night and then running 15.1 miles yesterday for my long run. After all of that activity, I am so thankful today is a rest day. Heck yes. Rewind to Friday night Mal and I are both participating in […]

    Zied

    Hi, guys! I recently had the opportunity to interview Elisa Zied, a registered dietitian, about optimal nutrition for marathon training, specifically what nutrients are important to fueling one’s body before and after workouts. I also asked her about her thoughts on protein powder and the best way to figure out how many calories I should consume after a long run. […]
