Too much of a good thing can actually halt your progress physically. I remember the days when I exercised 6 or 7 days a week, and I would go ALL OUT during my workouts. I loved the feeling immediately after finishing a workout (I still do!), but, looking back, I now know I was most definitely overexercising. The photo below still makes me laugh. I was so pissed that my own husband “no-repped” me during…

Right before running my first marathon, I wrote a post about why I was gaining weight during my training. I didn’t sign up for a marathon to necessarily lose weight, but I sure as heck didn’t think I would gain weight, especially since I was running so much. In the end, I was consuming more calories than my body needed, so I was about 10 pounds heavier on marathon day. When I trained for my second…

Good morning! Right before running my first marathon, I wrote a post about why I was gaining weight during my training. I didn’t sign up for a marathon to necessarily lose weight, but I sure as heck didn’t think I would put on weight, especially since I was running so much. In the end, it came down to consuming more calories than my body needed, so I was about 10 pounds heavier on marathon day. When I…

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 meal? Oh, man, it was such a bummer. I originally had big plans for a post-marathon celebration, but I was…

Good morning, friends! I’m still on a high from Monday’s marathon! It was such an amazing experience. The whole day. Seriously, I had the best time ever. Ok, ready for a recap? Let’s start at the beginning! I woke up, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, at 3:10 AM on Monday morning. I was too excited to sleep! I tossed and turned for about an hour and then finally decided to get out of bed. I laid out all…

Guys, I did it! I finished the Boston Marathon!! I ran a great race and finished in 4:10:10 (9:32). It was an awesome day for sure. Full recap coming soon!

Today is the day. Marathon Monday is here!!! By the time you read this post, I will be on my way to Hopkinton to run 26.2 miles. This day is a long time coming, and I can’t be more excited to finally run the Boston Marathon. It is the race I’ve always wanted to run. A lot of time, effort, and miles have gone into this one day, and I am beyond thrilled to participate…

A quick hello! The glorious finish. Run happy Boston! Almost didn’t buy. (Glad I did.) Team Stonyfield brunch. Eggs, bacon, potatoes. Running blogger moms!!

Tomorrow, I will run the 119th Boston Marathon. It is a dream come true and one that wouldn’t be possible without the support from so many wonderful people in my life. Training was really tough at times. Dealing with the snowiest winter ever in New England made running seem almost impossible at times and figuring out how to balance training with a baby, work, home life, and everything else took quite a bit of coordination. But, of course, I know…

The marathon is just 4 days from today! FOUR!! AHHHH! I can’t believe it. I really can’t believe it. I am so excited and so nervous at the same time. At this point, I know I need to just trust my training, stop obsessively checking the weather forecast, and focus on the things that I can control, like my OUTFIT for race day. I’ve also received quite a few questions from readers about what I am wearing…

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. I started making it back in January, so these songs are my very favorites from my training. I either listened to them on Pandora or over the KFIT stereo system…

Hi, friends! How’s your day going? Here’s another edition of Marathon Talk with Monica! (If you missed the first two, you can read them here and here.) Basically, it’s a round-up of things I have asked her in the past few weeks and her replies. I hope you find them helpful in your current or future marathon training! Do you think I should do a 22-miler? I know it seems weird, but most marathon training…
