    Hi, friends! How’s it going? Workout I headed out for an 8-mile run yesterday afternoon, but, unfortunately, things didn’t go as planned. It was a beautiful fall day (seriously, it was one of those perfect fall days you dream about), so I laced up my sneakers and headed toward Southfield to tackle my run. Things […]



    Hello, hello! I just got back from a glorious 11-mile run. Ok, “glorious” probably isn’t the best word to describe it—running is hard and not as easy as I remember it, and it’s been really tough for me to get back into it—but this morning’s run was one of the more enjoyable ones I’ve had […]

    morning run on the south shore

    Hello, hello! I got my 8-mile run in yesterday. Hooray! I actually nixed my 13-miler even before starting yesterday’s run because a friend of mine offered to accompany me on Saturday morning, which sounded like a lot better plan than running 13 miles alone. Running buddy + Saturday morning + fall = THE BEST There’s […]



    Hello, hello! Right now, I’m out running. I’m either tackling 13 miles like a champ or cutting it short and running 8 miles. Both runs are my half marathon training plan this week, so I decided to see how my body feels before I decided how many mile I would run. Whatever distance I don’t […]

    Good morning! Guess what day it is!? [source] Happy Hump Day!!! Of course, Mal and I started our day by quoting the “Happy as a Camel on Hump Day” commercial. The “Mike, Mike, Mike…” part is my favorite, which, obviously, translated to “Mal, Mal, Mal… what day is it, Mal?” Haha! Ok, we’re five years […]


    2013 falmouth road roace

    Falmouth is still my favorite road race! I had such a blast yesterday! Around 8:30 yesterday morning, Jess and I arrived at the runner drop-off area to take a bus to the start of the race in Woods Hole. When first I saw the lines for the buses, I was like oh, crap, this is […]


    Right Before the Race

    August 11, 2013


    Good morning! Happy Sunday! Right now, I’m on my way to Cape Cod for the Falmouth Road Race. Boy, do I hope I’m ready! I’ve been running pretty consistently since my not-so-great performance at the ZOOMA 10K, but I haven’t run more than 6 miles at once and, well, Falmouth is 7 miles. However, I […]
