Marathon Dreams

This past weekend’s Marine Corp Marathon and the upcoming ING New York City Marathon have gotten me thinking about finally planning for a marathon (we are talking long term planning here!). In the mean time, I am living vicariously through two fellow bloggers and tweeps – Lauren and Dorothy. I am in awe of their races last weekend […] Read more…

Am I too Sick to Run?

Right about now, a lot of runners are probably asking themselves “am I too sick to run?” For the past day or so, I have been feeling the tickle in my throat and the swollen glands that signal an impending cold.

Running with a Greyhound

A lot of people run with their dogs. It’s great to give them exercise and they make good companions for passing the miles. I do not run with my dog because, quite frankly, it’s embarrassing.

Running Costumes

Since Halloween is right around the corner, I am sure there are many of us who are trying to dream up creative ideas for running costumes that we can wear for Halloween races. I willingly admit that the idea of running in costume is not very appealing to me. I get hot enough running as is–let alone […] Read more…

Racecation

I heard the term “racecation” mentioned yesterday, and it got me thinking about planning one of my own. I have never planned a vacation around a race, or even participated in a race, while on vacation for that matter. As the cold weather approaches, I have been rethinking the whole idea of a racecation. Hmmmm, […] Read more…
