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…

DOWNLOAD THE FREE MARATHON TRAINING PLAN

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…

DOWNLOAD THE FREE MARATHON TRAINING PLAN I always wanted to run the Boston Marathon, so when Stonyfield approached me about running it, it was an opportunity that I just couldn’t refuse. I was only 3-months postpartum and running just a few…

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…

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…

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…

AHHH! I’m so close to race day. It’s just one week from tomorrow! I can’t believe I am going to run the BOSTON MARATHON so soon. I’m incredibly happy with my training, and I am SO READY to run this…

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…

Good morning! I’ve received a bunch of questions from readers asking about various parts of my marathon training and quite a few of them were related to recovery, so I wanted to share some of the things that I am doing “behind…

Woohoo! It’s officially taper time! My wonderful and amazing friend Monica flew out from California to run my last long run with me. (Now that’s a GREAT friend, right!?) I had 20 miles on my training plan (well, technically, 3:00) and…

Hi, friends! Another two weeks of marathon training are in the books! And I’m getting close to taper time, which is both exciting and nerve-wracking. My taper is actually only two weeks, which is quite a bit different than my…

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….

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:…

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…
