Getting Back Into a Florida Routine

Now that we are officially unpacked, we are able to get back into our routines. I never realized what a creature of habit I was until it was physically impossible for me to keep my habits. Even when I am traveling a lot for work, I have a routine…which is easy to do since I […][...]

March in Review

Had a really busy March, which included a lot of travel, milestones and changes. So let’s start from the top! Weekend in AZ: Where I learned hiking is not for the weak A few of my favorite colleagues and I had the opportunity to attend Kurt Warner’s Ultimate Fan Experience at the beginni[...]

A Change in Weather Will Do You Good

Things have been pretty hectic around the Cohen-Landsman household. Lots of traveling and move prepping. This past weekend, I headed down to South Florida for apartment hunting and given the ridiculousness that is Winter 2014 a much needed weekend of warmth. With the¬†I’m focusing on simple sh[...]

Training for a Good Cause: Team Challenge

Way back when I started this blog, nearly three years ago, it was in part to track my first major race — a half marathon. I didn’t do it alone though, because I am not as fancy as many runners out there. Since I had a family connection (my dad), I decided to do it […][...]

Regretting My ‘No Marathon’ Decision

A few months ago, I decided to postpone running the NYC Marathon for another year. At the time, I had a summer filled with travel (that hasn’t changed) and a really busy work schedule (also hasn’t changed and relates to reason number one). Now with everyone’s training in full swing[...]

Dropping Down In Races

There was a sign yesterday that read “Bet you thought this was a good idea in March.” Guy with sign, I bet you have no idea how right you were. Back when I signed up for the ZoomaRun Annapolis Half I was all about it. The weather was perfect for training runs, I was looking […][...]

Sidelined and Other Ramblings

I am the perfect example of how not to take care of yourself. There are studies out there that show that stress depletes your immune system and once your stress dissipates your immune system is flooded and then you get sick. Well that happened to me last week. I was go, go, going and then I [&helli[...]

Running & I Are Going Through Something

I’ve had a really hard time getting back into the running game. At first I thought it was because I didn’t have a race to train for. Then I signed up for and got into the Cherry Blossom 10M. This triggered signing up for two other races…the Zooma Annapolis Half and the Capitol Hill[...]

Tomorrow I Become a Marathoner

Everything comes down to tomorrow. All my early weekend morning runs. All my speed and hill drills. All the conversations and all the questions have prepared me for tomorrow. If someone asks me if I am ready, I can confidently say “I am ready for the first 20 miles.” Those last 6.2 on th[...]

Marathon Week: Is Carbo-Loading Totally Necessary?

I’ve never really believed in carbo-loading. I think it is because I love carbs too much and eat them way too often to see a real difference. Yes, I will eat my pasta the night before the big race, but do I really need to add on a bagel, some garlic bread and whatever else […][...]
