The Rundown – Narrow Your Focus
“Narrow your focus to only what is happening inside this room.” Statements like these from my yoga teacher are why I love and need my hour of inward reflection and narrowed focus once a week. It’s so hard to do otherwise. Lately I have found myself trying to do a lot of things half-assed instead […]

The Rundown – Dare to Be Good (Enough)
My husband and I have a “devil’s advocate” question we use in clever ways to verbally spar with one another. I have to give him all the credit for coming up with it, but I get credit for using it more. The question is simply “what is it all for?” Imagine my surprise when I […]

The Rundown – Wanna Get Away?
For months now I have been talking to my husband about leaving. I’m not positive where I want to go or for how long, I just know that I wanna get away. Soon. I’m not talking about a vacation either but actually living with my family somewhere else (anywhere else!) for a few months or […]

The Rundown – My New Bike Wheels Are Trying To Kill Me
Every once and a while my husband jokingly reminds me of how mad he would be if I died getting hit by a car on a ride or run. Well, he almost got the chance to find out just how consuming that anger would be after I tested my new Zipp 404 wheels for the […]

The Rundown – How Badly Do You Want It?
When I sat down to finalize our Labor Day plans with my husband, I thought I was being honest when I told him I really did not care one way or the other. However, as soon as he dashed my race plans I realized I was lying my ass off. Everyone probably knows Matt Fitzgerald’s […]

The Rundown – Hell Week Before Summer Vacation
You have to go through hell to get to heaven, right? I’m pretty sure that’s what I was taught over 12 grueling years of Catholic school. Or maybe I’m just remembering a country song. Either way, my coach felt it necessary to put me through a savage week of workouts before I disappear onto Cape […]

The Rundown – The Wonderful Weirdness of Hershey Park
Where are you going? You’re driving 5 1/2 hours for an amusement park based on chocolate bars? You mean “Hershey” as in Hershey bars and kisses? These are all the questions I usually get when I try to explain that my family and I are going back to the Hotel Hershey and Hershey Park, as […]

The Rundown – The Longest Spring Break Ever

The Rundown – The Longest Spring Break Ever
  Since we had an extended winter here in the northeast, it seemed only fitting to extend our spring break until it was actually spring. In my time away I saw Pink, a brawl at Fenway Park, Myrtle Beach, sort of overcame my fear of flying, had my longest bike ride ever and NatRunsFar stayed for […]
