marathon training

…is it weird that it’s all I can think about, yet I still feel like it doesn’t quite seem real yet? It should have felt real when my marathon training guide was complete. It should have felt real when I received all my Zero: The Project to End Prostate Cancer gear for reaching my fundraising […]


One Final Milestone

I got so caught up in my Chris Brown excitement yesterday, I completely forgot to report some exciting news on the marathon training front. That’s a done and done 22 mile run. On Saturday morning, Anastasia and I awoke around 7 a.m. to hit the pavement for our final PDR before the marathon. And since […]


My legs kinda really hurt today. So much so that I declared today “bring your foam roller to work day” today. Last night, four of us set out at 6:00 p.m. to complete 18.5 miles. It was cool, windy, and dark, and we held an average of 8:30 pace for the duration of the run. […]

Sometimes, I have to remind myself what I’m running the Marine Corps Marathon for in the first place. Dash for Dad, a racing team that’s a part of Zero: The Project to End Prostate Cancer. That’s my team. I frequently get so caught up in the training and the details that I forget the whole […]


For The First Time

For the first time, Anastasia and I ran a 20 mile training run on Saturday. Who caught that Dane Cook reference? I don’t know if it was the perfect weather, the new route, the proper hydration & 2 energy gels, or the fact that I got my running twin back, but the run felt awesome. […]


Look who is celebrating Friday by finally figured out how to (almost) successfully enhance her (now natural?) waves with her straightener. Alright, it’s not awesome, but I was running out of time. Is it bad I don’t put much effort into my working look? Speaking of running out of time, I need to establish a […]

Chloe and I fled Virginia Beach once an evacuation was issued for my area for hurricane Irene. So, where did we find ourselves at midnight last night? Arriving right here at my sisters house outside of Fredericksburg, VA. so happy to have escaped to safety. My day has been spent doggy-proofing Amy’s house (read: hiding […]


Where I’ve Been

I’m baaaaack. That’s baby Sloane, my youngest niece. I had lots and lots of family playtime this past week on our annual family stay in our condo in North Myrtle Beach. Where we had some sunny beach days.. And we had some not-so-nice beach days. (You’re welcome for giving you my prettiest face in that […]


I’m being totally serious when I say I want to be Janae. Give me those running skills and that pretty smile… you rock. I was so honored when she agreed to guest post for me while I’m having my family beach time in North Myrtle this week. I asked her to gimme some cross-training tips […]


So Hot in Herre

Just so you know, that song was the first rap song I ever knew all the words to. (source) Love you, Nelly. So. You know from last week’s posts that it’s been really hot. I did a “Running in the HEAT” post, followed by an “I really wanted to do a 14 mile run but […]
