My Kids’ Thoughts on Having a Mother Runner
Tomorrow, my babies turn 8! It’s hard to believe that I’ve been a mother runner for 8 years.  At times it doesn’t seem that long ago that I was huffing and puffing, pushing my two cuties around in our double BOB stroller. Other times, it seems like eons ago.  How did they get so big […]

When coming back from an injury seems like forever away…but suddenly seems too soon
Coping with injury is never easy for runners. We really love what we do. When you have a running injury, once you figure out a rough plan of how long you will need off, the anxiety from being unable to run quickly begins to build. Which is exactly why I previously gave you the 12 […]

Quad Squad
It was an ordinary early morning at the gym. I was doing a side lunge with a DB clean in front of the big mirrors at the gym.  As I watched my form, my eyes fixated on my legs and arms. Visible muscles popped out with every move. Damn.  I looked jacked! Was it the […]

Last Week’s Workouts
After the quad busting race at Cranmore Mountain, last week’s workouts were all about recovering.  It took a full 4 days until I could walk down stairs normally.  I seriously think it was 10x worse than the soreness after my first marathon. Mountain running downhill is no joke!  I spent most of the week doing […]

Join a Runner Community for Fun, Friendship, and Freedom to Share
In the past, the only way to find a runner community was at local running events on a Saturday. Those communities are still there, but if you are shy or a little socially awkward (aren’t runners universally known for being that way? :p) that is not your only option anymore. You can follow social media […]

Courtney Dauwalter: Can You Find the Reserve of Strength You Never Knew You Had? -R4R 063
Today’s interview is with Courtney Dauwalter, an Ultrarunner, who was the first finisher in the 2017 Moab 240….yes the first, not the first woman, the first finisher.  She finished in a mind blowing 58 hours, 10 hours faster than the second place finisher.  She was a DNF on her first 100 mile race and has […]

I Am A Half Ironman! Rev3 Quassy Race Recap
I did it. I finished 70.3 miles of swimming, cycling and running through some of the steepest terrain in Connecticut to claim the title of Half Ironman. Here’s how it all went down. FOUR DAYS BEFORE THE RACE Yes, I’m starting four days before the race because that is when I first started feeling sick. […]

“Just think, you could be running a flat 5k right now instead of this!” At least that’s what I thought she said.  It was hard to hear anything other than pounding of my heartbeat in my ears.  You gotta love spectators who can make you laugh when you are struggling up a 53% incline. Over […]
