• Kinzua Country Tango is HERE!

    August 1, 2019 by

    I’ve dropped off a bit on my posting, but given I really just started this blog not that long ago…I’d say I’m on track. Anyways, I’ve been busy resting and training these last two weeks since the Presque Isle Half Marathon in anticipation of the tango. I’ve mentioned it before, but for those unfamiliar, it… Read more

  • Well, I was close…

    July 26, 2019 by

    Hi everyone! Wanted to update on how the race in Erie went. I felt pretty good the first half and kept a solid 8:45 pace until mile 7-8. After that I kept about a 9:30-9:45 pace. From there I kind of crashed a bit and had a hard time playing the mental game with myself.… Read more

  • Presque Isle Half

    July 19, 2019 by

    Hey everyone! Been a busy week and I’ve been trying to get my mileage in, get my rest, and get some good nutrition (Taco Bell has veggies, right?!) before my half marathon this weekend. I will be doing the Presque Isle Half Marathon in Erie, Pa. I have done this race three times now, I… Read more

  • Something a Little Different

    July 12, 2019 by

    So, this blog is first and foremost a running and fitness blog that I started as a requirement for applying to be a BibRave Pro, but I want and hope it to be much more than that, too. I want to branch out and broaden it a bit here and there. And today I feel… Read more

  • Better than good, they are Goodr!

    July 9, 2019 by

    Okay, so just a quick shout out to Goodr and their amazing sunglasses. I purchased my first pair at the Pittsburgh Half Marathon and I was skeptical. I had heard people giving them accolades like they don’t move, bounce, slide, etc., when you are running and how easy it is to see with them on.… Read more

  • Feeling Off…Is Running Mental or Physical?

    July 9, 2019 by

    What can I say…these last few weeks I have just felt…off. I can’t quite place what it is either. Is it that I’m overtraining? Am I not eating right? Am I not getting proper hydration? Is my anxiety getting the best of me? Is it other health issues going on? Am I not sleeping enough… Read more

  • Looong weekend

    July 7, 2019 by

    Hey all, been a few days since my last post. I was out “enjoying” the long weekend. While I definitely did enjoy it and the company I had, sometimes it just drains you unexpectedly. I found myself there. I ran a 10 miler on the 4th early in the am with some running friends in… Read more

  • Wide awake…

    July 3, 2019 by

    It’s 1:48am and here I am wide awake. So what better time to write a post! I’m currently laying on my couch overthinking one and a million things with an ice back under my calves and compression sleeves on. I ran 4 miles tonight. 4 GOOD miles at that and hit a great goal pace… Read more

  • When to Rest?

    July 2, 2019 by

    Lately I’ve been struggling big time with what is injury and what is just in need of rest. I have been training hard for the Kinzua Country Tango running portion of the race which includes a half marathon and a 3.5ish mile run later in the day. I have followed a training plan and have… Read more

  • Who Am I?

    July 1, 2019 by

    Such an existential question! But no, in all seriousness…I am a 31 year old licensed social worker who is just trying to figure out my life and help others along the way. I have always worked out in some capacity and there are weeks, months, and the unfortunate year or two where it has not… Read more
