Needed motivation today because when I saw it was less than 20 degrees when I woke up this morning all I wanted to do was this: And so I made myself some of this: And tried to be positive about running and working and life. Want more runnderlust? Check out [ Twitter ] [ […]
Last year, I had a really positive experience running a half marathon in Philly. Although my thoughts immediately following that race were anything but running another half marathon, I really, really enjoyed the distance and the event and wanted to come back to Philly to run it again. Upon further thinking, I opted to run […]
We lose ourselves in the things we love. We find ourselves there, too. Happy Monday. Cheers.
Last year, I made a social media commitment to running a half-marathon. I wanted to get myself on track running-wise and get back into competitive racing and I thought training for the distance would be a novel experience for me and reinvigorate my training. I signed up for the Philadelphia Half Marathon; big, fast, close […]
Less than three week until the Richmond Half Marathon! Since my training has not been going that well, I try to make the most out of every run that I can actually squeeze in. What that means is I try to run longer than my typical go-to distance (30 minutes_ and try to run a […]
I learned there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead, others come from behind. But I’ve bought a big bat. I’m all ready, you see. Now my troubles are going to have trouble with me. – Dr. Seuss P.S. sorry for missing MM last week. Life gets crazy sometimes.
Amy Dombroski, pro cyclist, killed by car in Belgium during training Article: Denver Post “She did stuff because she loved it and because it was good for her. So many of us waste time hemming and hawing and not doing what we should be doing and what our heart says. Amy didn’t do that.” Want […]
It’s been a while since I blogged about my own running and there is a simple answer for that: My own running has not been happening! About 2.5 weeks ago, I caught a cold which turned into bronchitis. With every passing day, I wasn’t feeling any better and I was faced with a dilemma that […]
I feel very blessed to have a job doing what I love. Although it means I sacrifice many of my weekends, there is no place I would rather be than watching my athletes compete. My weekends, for as long as I can remember, have been taken up by track meets and road races and […]
Last week, I wrote a blog post about the difference between running and racing and the factors that contribute to why you perform better on race day. The adrenaline, the cheering, the taper, the racing gear—it all has an effect and it is important to recognize race day is the time to put all the work […]
Another late Motivation Monday post but better late than never! With the school year starting and being very busy with student-teaching, it is very easy to lose sight of what some of my long term running goals are. A day off here, a shortened run there don’t seem to have an immediate effect on my […]
Coaching cross country and track has taught me many things in the past few years and I am constantly surprised by new questions and comments I hear every day in practice or at meets. Because I have been a runner for my entire life, I take for granted what people already know about the sport […]
There is no better way of exploring a new place than by foot. Hope you all have had a great Monday! Want more runnderlust? TWITTER —> INSTAGRAM —> BLOGLOVIN
The middle of the week is when I struggle the most with running. I usually have lost motivation to run in the morning by this point so I have to run after work, I have little to no energy by the time I come home from school, practice, and class, and am in a perpetual […]
