Bitter and Selfish

April 15, 2014

I can’t believe today is April 15th. Exactly one year has passed since the horrendous tragedy in Boston. One year. Already. I’d like to say that some of my bitterness about the whole thing has gone away, but it hasn’t, and I really don’t think that it will. I feel guilty that I’m bitter for selfish reasons […]

I decided last week, that I’m going to run the Go! St. Louis Half Marathon next weekend, so I again, kept this week on the lighter side. It was between St. Louis and Atlantic City, but the $1200 price tag for a plane ticket to Atlantic City, made my decision for me. I’m still having […]

Some Fuel for Thought.

March 26, 2014

I’ve received a lot of questions recently, asking me how I fuel during a long run or race. It’s much easier to respond as a blog post, than it is on Twitter, with limited characters. 1. ENERGYbits. Before every run, I take at least one serving of ENERGYbits (30 bits), about 15 minutes prior. ENERGYbits are […]

Race Recap: 2014 Shamrock Half Marathon

March 22, 2014

The ride down to VA Beach from DC was brutal, especially after JUST running a half marathon. Thankfully, my GPS gave us a heads up on backed up traffic, so we jumped on Route 1 for a while, until we were passed all of the congestion. It still took us over 4 hours, blah. By […]

The Results are In………

March 5, 2014

 (Source) I had an MRI of my pelvis yesterday, which included both of my hips. I expected the worst, because lets face it, every time I’ve had an MRI, I’ve gotten the stress fracture or stress reaction diagnosis. Ew, I don’t have time for that. While I don’t have pain on impact, I have a […]
