Here we are at the end of 2016- a year that many have called a dumpster fire. A lot of awful things happened in the world this year- as they do every year- but this one really did feel worse. That may be because for all the things we lost in 2016, one thing we … Continue reading 2016- Resolution Review
Over the weekend I ran the Santa Dash with my company sponsored team! Have I said before how proud I am of the charitable giving at Myriad? Well I am. Not only did they pick up the race registration for myself and my team (this is the third race they have sponsored a team for), … Continue reading Santa Dash! “Running” in slush
In October I thought November was gonna be so awesome. I love Halloween but every year by the time October 31st comes I find myself saying 'Phew! Thank goodness we can all stop partying now!' Time for family holidays and warm beverages and in this particular year, the presidential election. I know many of us were … Continue reading The Short Run; The Long November
Happy Halloween! On the 24th, I started a 12 week Data Analytics class which I am very excited about. I also started planning a trip home to Maryland for Thanksgiving, and have been discussing plans with my sister for her to visit in December with my niece. I also have cool plans this Friday to … Continue reading Fitting in Fitness
Yesterday was the Heroes and Villains 5K I've been anticipating since the Half finished. When I mentioned to my boss that I was running this race (which supports Memorial Soan Kettering Cancer Research Center) that my friend Reza Pazooki organizes, she suggested Myriad should have a team and that the company would donate to MSK as well! … Continue reading Heroes and Villains Dash!
Have you missed me? I've missed writing daily posts, but I was pretty sick the week after the half and had some back pain issues so I was also glad to be taking a break, but now I'm glad to be back. This Saturday I am running the Heroes and Villains Dash to benefit Memorial … Continue reading Xena Warrior Princess in Progress
This race was amazing! I physically felt better than I have in most races. This is the first one I have not cried at the finish. I did end up with a bit of a bug after the weekend. I guess running all that distance was rather taxing on my immune system. And actually, I … Continue reading ROCK N ROLL half-marathon 13.1
Today my folks and I went to the race expo to pick up our race packets for tomorrow! As at least one of my readers/friends has noticed, this post is going up in the evening rather than the morning like most of my posts. This is because I have guests and sitting down to blog … Continue reading 60 Day Countdown: 0 Days!!! Race TOMORROW!
This countdown thing was throwing me off again but it is one day, because today does not count toward the days left number and race day does not count toward the days left number. As of this writing the more accurate way to put it would be 1 day, 21 hours, 11 minutes and 17 … Continue reading 60 Day Countdown: 1 Day!
A hurricane is coming, however according to The Weather Underground App if we make our time goals on Saturday we won't get rained on! The debate last night was depressing. I couldn't watch the second half so I put on Iron Chef America on Netflix and ate some chocolates. Not so good on my food conscious … Continue reading 60 Day Countdown: 2 Days!
