I’m usually a pretty go with the flow kinda gal, but when I have a lot of people see and things I want to do…I go into planning mode. Take my wedding for instance. Not only did I create a pretty precise itinerary for the week for my husband and I to keep us on
We’re officially a week out from the 2019 Boston Marathon. And I’m already having some serious déjà vu from last year…obsessively checking the weather. A few days ago it looked pretty great, but things have taken a turn for the nasty…and eerily reminiscent of last year’s shit show. Last year I showed up in Boston

During marathon training, my Saturday routine is pretty great. Run, brunch, yoga, repeat. Brunch for me means connecting with friends over good food, sharing race stories, and drinking excessive amounts of coffee. I’m always looking for a good post-run spot and this week, finally made it to Snooze: an AM eatery to check out their

Since my injury, I had dropped all expectations of what racing looked like for me. And the amazing thing is, I performed better
The Chevron Houston Marathon is one of my favorite times of year in Houston. The city truly shines. And this year, after Houston’s historic floods and World Series wins, I can’t wait to see what magic the race has in store. But I know what you’re thinking. I’m not a runner (plus it’s sold out). But
2017 was probably the most eventful year in my running history. Yet, it’s also the year since I began running in 2009 that I’ve clocked the least amount of miles and races. It was a year that injury claimed the final four months of the year and a few races, too. But it’s also the
