I know it’s already March 20, but it’s been a pretty busy month, so I’m wrapping up my February running today. I ran 95 miles. It’s always nice to hit 100, but I was happy with 95. It was more than I ran in January, and I also took off from running most of the … More Finally wrapping up my February running: A 50K DNF, a 50K and more
If you’re like me and run hot, WhitePaws RunMitts would be a great addition to your winter running wardrobe. The reason? These mittens envelope your whole hands — there’s no thumb — but they are easy to flip back and pull down if your hands get warm. … More Add WhitePaws RunMitts to your winter running wardrobe (+ discount code)
Last month, my boyfriend, Mike, and I headed up to Annapolis to grocery shop at Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods. We usually at least stop at Trader Joe’s on our way back from seeing family or doing something else in the Baltimore area, but we hadn’t been there in probably about four-plus months because of … More I enjoyed a change of scenery at Anne Arundel County’s Quiet Waters Park
It’s shocking and appalling to think that anyone could go for a run and not come home because they were shot and killed. But that’s what happened to Ahmaud Arbery on Feb. 23, 2020. … More I participated in #FinishTheRun and ran for change on Feb. 23
As usual at the beginning of each year, I’ve set some running goals for the new year. I know we’re already into the second half of January, but I got a little behind in my blogging. Some of the goals I already had in mind, and one of them, I added yesterday. Here goes… … More These are my 2021 running goals
I woke up Friday morning and started my workday from home. On my break, I ran errands for the running club and picked up a to-go lunch. Once I was finished with the rest of my workday, I figured I’d try to squeeze in a couple miles before a 6 p.m. yoga class that I … More I was hit by a car on an evening run. Don’t become the next victim.
Post-run nutrition is one of those things I know is important but I’m not the best at keeping up with. Check out my review of Science in Sport REGO Rapid Recovery. … More Get that protein in post-run with Science in Sport REGO Rapid Recovery (+ discount code)
There are challenges that come with an event like the Pemberton 24 that aren’t found at many other types of races.
One challenge is that unless you plan to do all 24 of the 5Ks offered, there is no real “finish” that you must meet. You stop running when you meet your goal — but, you can skip a 5K, or a few 5Ks, and come back to the race course. You can use strategy to get extra points during the middle-of-the-night 5Ks. Your goal can change at any time. … More Pemberton 24 Take 2: I completed 10 5Ks in 24 hours
I’d been wanting to make it back to the trails at Hashawha Environmental Center in Westminster, Maryland, for a while, and I finally made that happen last month, on Sept. 6. I grew up about 30 minutes away in Hampstead, and I remember going to Hashawha — which is north of the Westminster city limits … More I ran the trails at Hashawha for the first time in more than a decade
I didn’t feel my best at the Mike Sterling 10K on Labor Day weekend, but I appreciated the feeling of heading toward that finish line — marked by a crab pot arch. That feeling is something I just don’t think can be duplicated in a virtual event. Plus, I, along with my blog, got a … More Out of racing practice: My ninth Mike Sterling 10K
