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…

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 race already. Bring it on!  Week 13 was one of my highest mileage weeks of my training, which included a 20-miler with a half marathon finish (so fun). Week 14 was officially the start of my two-week taper, and…

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 the scenes.” I truly believe that the combination of these things has kept my body happy and healthy (*knock on wood*) over the past 14 weeks. Let’s hope they continue to work, so I am…

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 previous marathon plans, but, hey, you gotta trust your training and that’s exactly what I am doing.  Last week was a much-needed de-load week with lower mileage, but things are amping up once again with…

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), and I stopped at my car 3 different times for water breaks (watermelon flavor). Temperature at the start of my…

As a Stonyfield blogger ambassador, I was compensated for writing this post as part of my partnership with the brand. The thoughts and opinions expressed are honest and all my own. Hi, friends! This month’s Stonyfield blog post topic is all about balance and what it means for a busy running mother. Right now, I’m raising a little boy, managing a small business, and training for a marathon, so I am all about making the most of my…

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. That’s a lot of running! Yikes. I have two 3-hour runs in the coming weeks, so, hopefully, they will make me feel a…

Hello! I survived my longest marathon training run to date: 2 hours and 50 minutes! Holy cow. The mileage is really getting up there now! I started my run around 8:30 this morning, so the weather was just starting to warm up. (It was about 34 degrees when I arrived at Southfield.) There was a good amount of black ice and slush, so the first few miles of my run were slow and steady as I…

I can’t believe my  training for the Boston Marathon is already half over. This is both exciting and nerve-racking. Holy cow. The marathon is going to be here before I know it! My training over the past couple of weeks wasn’t the best, but I’m not dwelling on it (the past is the past) and instead looking forward. In week 7, I traveled to Seattle and Minneapolis and then contracted a terrible stomach bug, which sidelined…

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 been asking Monica all sorts of questions. She’s a good friend of mine and she’s run a lot of marathons over…

Hi, guys! I loved reading all of your comments on my 10 Truths and a Lie post. But, jeez Louise, a lot of you guys think I have zero will-power! Haha! The statement about peanut M&Ms was actually not the lie. I really, truly have not touched the bag in days (mostly because I kind of forgot about them)! The lie was “I like my pillows like I like my pancakes: soft and fluffy,” which a few…

Go Team Stonyfield! The quote above is one of my all-time favorites because I truly believe that little, everyday changes can really add up to something big and wonderful. That said, one of my goals for 2015 is to just “roll with it” and…

Good morning, friends! I did my first long run of my marathon training on Monday morning, so now I want to tell you guys all about it! Pre-run eats: Steel cut oats (made in the crockpot <— super easy), eggs, and cantaloupe. Weather: Ever since I committed to running this marathon, I’ve been obsessed with the weather. I’m not a fan of winter or being cold, so I often check the weather multiple times a day to plan my…

Good morning! Happy Monday! My training for the Boston Marathon officially starts today! Woohoo! I am pumped. Last Friday, we (the Stonyfield mom bloggers) received our 16-week training plan for the Boston Marathon from Megan, our running coach. It’s a great mix of running, cross-training, and rest days, and what I love most about it is that it’s all based on time, not mileage. So instead of a 20-mile long run, we’ll spend 3 hours…
