Boston Marathon 2019 Race Recap

This weekend someone asked me what my favorite part of the Boston Marathon course was and it took me a little while to articulate an answer. The entire course is so special, but running the Boston Marathon is more than just a race. It’s a whole weekend of experiences, people, and a city that comes

One Week Out.

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.

Gasparilla Half Marathon Recap

My second half marathon in Florida is officially in the books! And, just like my last one in Myakka State Park, Tampa delivered some serious heat and humidity. My last few weeks have been some of the biggest mileage I’ve ever had, but a short taper had me feeling pretty relaxed and ready to run.

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).

Reflecting on the Miles of 2017

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
