Marathon Training Week 10

This week’s long run was really tough. Once again I was the last person back to the store, so late that they had broken down the fueling station. While I was originally somewhat happy that I had even pushed myself 17 miles practically alone for the last 8 miles walking into that store with not[...]

Marathon Training: Week 9

I wavered a bit this week. I was just excruciatingly tired.  I wasn’t really sleeping that well and the temperatures reached “hot as hell” proportions at my normal run times. I still got three runs in….though I feel guilty about my long run turning into almost nothing. Physi[...]

Marathon Training: Week 7

Week 7 is in the books, and we are under 80 days to the New York City Marathon.  After my long run last week, I decided it was time to cut back on the number of times I was running during the week. I think my body just needs a bit more recovery time as […][...]

Workout Review: Yoga with Live Music at Colony Hotel

Whenever I mention my love for yoga someone tells me I need to check out yoga at the Colony Hotel.  It is led by Keith Fox and has live music with a rotating group of musicians. Know before you go….I went to sign up online, paid for the class, and then got a little confused […][...]

Marathon Training Week 3

This was an exciting week for me. Mostly because I was finally linking up with a running group to keep me motivated and I would get a new route! Thankfully this was a “back off” week. I say thankfully, because I had some terrible runs that left me scared I had already injured myself R[...]

Marathon Training Week 2

This week was all about ensuring I didn’t get off track while traveling. Luckily, I arranged my travel (and fun activities) in a way that actually made it quite easy. Monday: Rest Day Resting on Mondays is quickly becoming my favorite thing. Mostly because I am exhausted after the weekend, eve[...]

Marathon Training Week 1

This first week was all about figuring out my routine. I got used to waking up extra early, shifting my yoga class schedule, and getting back into the swing of early bedtimes on Fridays. I did a lot of research on new hydration and refuel options. I am trying Nuun and Salt Stick and Myothon [&hellip[...]

Workout Review: PurCycle

When you think of boutique cycle studios you usually only hear about FlyWheel or SoulCycle. For people who aren’t spin aficionados they can be incredibly intimidating and overwhelming. That’s not the case with PurCycle in Delray Beach. The best way to describe PurCycle is a Mom & Pop[...]

Even 20 Minutes Works

I’ve had one of those months, where I am lucky if I spend three days in a row in the same city. This also means that when I am in the same city, I am working significant hours. Mythical “slow season” strikes again. My whacked out schedule really had the potential to derail my train[...]

I’m a Runner

*in honor of National Running Day* I overheard someone at yoga today talking about how a friend “does yoga to run.” And I thought that makes sense. I enjoy yoga, and it makes me feel good, but it started as a way to stretch myself out so that I was running better. My first memory [&helli[...]
