As I stood at the starting line behind the plethora of people chasing their dreams, pushing through boundaries and capturing a little bit of magic at the Baltimore Marathon in 2008, I noticed that no matter how much I edged backward, one gentleman would always take a step back. I finally approached him and told him he had to go first. ...
This week’s recap: In terms of running, I was kind of lacking. I shortened my weekly distance by 8.5 miles. However, in terms of doing things in the running community, my cup runneth over. I directed the 5th annual Heels and Hills Half Marathon 10K, 5K, and 1 Mile. Almost 2000 women ran in cold, wet, and windy conditions to celebrate ...

Last week recap: My Training Schedule called for 34 miles. I messed up in planning and executing my shorter runs and somehow ended up doing a total of 15.35 miles instead of the 18 intended. Oops.

The Runner We Hope You CAN'T Beat...
This week’s recap: The training schedule called for 30 miles. I abided by the two rest days, did a slightly longer than planned long run, and came out to 31.1 miles.
Sunday morning I had 15 miles on the schedule but was mentally shooting for 16 miles. I started panicking a little the night before because I realized I had never done ...
Chef's Kitchen Cupboard Dinner. I won’t bore you with all of the details of a chef’s day but what led up to this week’s recipe… It’s inventory time, the pastry chef is out of town and I was starving from a late night work out.
Sunday’s 16 miles were done in one of the worst running weather days I can remember for only being April. It was a scorcher. Those were hard miles to get done and scared me a little…maybe a lot. After conversations on Twitter Sunday as I worked through getting in the miles, it’s become so obvious to me how mentally defeated I am about the marathon distance. While I think some newer runners don’t respect the distance enough, I have moved beyond respecting it to flat out fearing the distance of a full marathon.
