around the track we go

ahhh, my first track workout is officially in the books. i was definitely a little nervous going into the workout – i think because it was just unfamiliar territory for me. but hey, we have to go out of our comfort zone sometimes right?! and what an incredible workout it was. i knew going into…

what’s a tempo run?

yep, i had that moment last night during my training program, five & dime, where i had no clue what my coach was talking about. thankfully, right after he said tempo run (probably because he saw some blank expressions, primarily from me), he explained what that actually meant. yes in my time running, i’ve never…

a little five and dime

you may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. in fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it. maya angelou welp, i signed up for my very first running training program?! i…

mileage payback

“the road seems shorter when shared with a friend.” as many of you may remember, when the walt disney world half marathon was cancelled in january, i still decided to get my miles in to say that i completed the half marathon and earn my medal. well that run would not have been possible without…

run, darling. run

“running reminds you that even in your weakest moments, you are strong.” this could not be more apparent than during today’s run. this past friday, some co-workers and i decided to complete a kick butt crossfit workout. and while an awesome workout, i am definitely feeling the second day soreness. and naturally, i felt like…
