    Hi, guys! Since the marathon, I have received all sorts of questions about my training, recovery, future plans, and much more. I figured some of you might want to hear my answers too, so I decided to create a little post-marathon Q & A on CNC. I hope you find my replies helpful! What was your post-marathon […]

    Marathon Talk with Monica

    January 16, 2015

    Good morning! Happy FRIDAY! As you know, I’m training for the Boston Marathon with Team Stonyfield. It’ll actually be my third marathon, but since it’s been awhile since I last ran one (3+ years), I’m feeling a little rusty with my training knowledge. Well, ok, truthfully, I feel like a total newbie sometimes, so I’ve […]
