It’s official!

It's official . . .  I'm married! 🙂  Scott and I got married on a cold and RAINY day on the north shore, with just our family present.  It was a GREAT day. Photos taken by the talented Oullis Photography.


Global Running Day

Apparently it's Global Running Day.  And I am HAPPY to report that I ran. 5 miles. Broken up in 2 x 2.5 mile segments, with a .25 walk in between.  Not the heavy training runs that I wanted to be doing at this point. But shortly after my last post I felt ANOTHER left tibial …

Boston: The Documentary – motivation!

I saw the Boston Marathon Film (Boston: The Documentary) last night with a group of running gals.

Giving Thanks: Boston Marathon 2013 Race Report

In honor of the 2017 Boston Marathon coming up on Monday, I’m rebloging my 2013 Boston Marathon Race Report. I still get emotional thinking about that day. I’m finally feeling healthy and ready to try to qualify again and get back to Boston!

I have a plan!

Those of you who have been following me for a while know that I need a plan.  A goal marathon. A training schedule. A race on the horizon. When I'm training I am happier. More productive. More disciplined. I'm just in a better place - physically, mentally and emotionally. I NEED that this year. So …
