Quanity vs. Quality: Trying to PR with Multiple Marathons

Quanity vs. Quality: Trying to PR with Multiple Marathons

2012. What a year. I do not plan on racing anymore this month so in the next few weeks many of my posts will be reflecting on random running/ race stuff that happened this year as well as some of my goals for next year.  When the year began my marathon PR was a 3:35. My main marathon goal for 2012 was to break 3:20.  I wasn’t sure if I would do it the first time around but I planned…

Moving Forward!

Moving Forward!

This week has been a very different week than last week.  For one, I actually caught up on some much needed sleep so that was a good thing! Last week was full of high emotions, traveling, and marathoning!  I was so focused and stressed about NYC that I had to remind myself to eat.  This is not like me at all.  I usually have a great appetite for anything most of the time. And this week I reverted to my…

I had to have some serious talks with myself on some miles and my second half was about 5 minutes slower than my first half. I managed to…

When life gives you lemons- Marathon Eve Thoughts

When life gives you lemons- Marathon Eve Thoughts

Thank you for the encouraging comments! I NEVER imagined things would turn out like this but it’s amazing how things can work out for the good. My sister and I left NYC this morning and took the train at Grand Central Station back to New Haven, CT where her vehicle was. We immediately set out for Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. (This is about a 3 hour drive.) We stopped at a great random pizza place for lunch on the way that we…

A Change in Plans….

A Change in Plans….

I do not even know where to start. This week has been a roller coaster ride to say the least. My sister and I arrived in NYC around noon today. We had lunch, went to the expo and were having a great time. We got our bib numbers and were ready to run! As we were leaving the expo my sister started getting texts from friends saying they were so sorry the race had been cancelled. She texted back that…
