Last week’s workouts were all about recovery from the Seacoast Half Marathon.  I don’t have any other races lined up (except for the family Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving) for the rest of the year so all my miles are now just for fun. Monday Rest day Tuesday Morning Flow Yoga at Bending Bodhi was just […]

Have you ever gone into a race thinking it’s “just for fun” but then come out with a feeling of disappointment because the time on the clock wasn’t what you wanted? Even though you told yourself over and over again, it didn’t matter? I haven’t run a half marathon in over 2 years.  The last […]

Last week’s workouts were kept mostly easy in anticipation of the Seacoast Half Marathon. It’s crazy that it’s been two years since I did a half (and 5 years since I ran this race) when for years the 13.1 distance was my jam. I’m rusty on racing (and rusty in racing in general) those so […]

When You’re a Runner and Your Spouse is Not

Without fail, when I first meet someone new and they find out I’m a runner, one of questions is usually, “Does your husband run?”  Short answer, no. Long answer, yes but he doesn’t like it, so not really? It’s no secret that running is a big part of my life.  When you start up a […]

Last week’s workouts saw one negative and one positive. The negative? My plantar fascia flared up again after my run on Thursday.  I was hobbling around for most of the day afterwards. The positive? I gave my heel extra attention, took two days off in a row from running, and I was able to crank […]

Runners are quite unique. We have our own set of problems. I’ve known this for awhile but it’s very evident when I try to explain certain running situations to non-runners.
