The Race On Sunday, February 22nd, 2015 I ran my first half-marathon. It wasn’t, overall, the most spectacular race that a person ever ran. In fact, on February 23rd I probably would not have called this a highlight of my life at all. It began well. The first half of the race was the greatest … More 2015 Highlight: The Half Marathon
The Superhero 5K in Cambridge, MA, will always hold a dear spot in my heart—last year’s was the first road race I ever ran in my life, after a knee surgery and physical therapy and many months of training. After a great experience last year, I was obviously going to run it again. This year … More race report: Superhero 5K
I was supposed to run the Disney Princess Half Marathon in February 2013. Instead, I dislocated my kneecap multiple times and had knee surgery in December of 2012, aka no half marathons for me in Feb ’13.

This was my first-ever 10K race and I will just say I did horribly. I went out too fast, I … More race report: Cohasset Road Race by the Sea!

This means I can run on the reservoir again and not destroy my body trying to run up and down hills. Hurray! And today it … More long run report: 3/23/14 (plus, overcoming the 3-mile wall)
Distance: ~3.25 miles Funny story (funny/not funny), my Garmin couldn’t find me today so I wasn’t able to track my time or mileage properly. Sigh. Has anyone else had this problem? Is it because it was overcast? It worked fine in the same area earlier this week. Anyway, I was trying to find a flat … More long run report: 3/2/14
