Races

Last year, I completed my first sprint triathlon. I had no idea what I was doing while training and was confused regularly I found in free online sprint tri training plans. I needed help. Here is a guest post from Katie, a friend I met at Snowbird last January, who is one badass triathlete with [...]

On Saturday, I completed the Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon. I had one of the best race experiences and despite stopping for pictures with Disney characters along the way, finished under 2 hours! The race starts at 10pm on Saturday night so race day prep took some strategizing. For brunch, I had an omelet, [...]

Day two  in Disney started with sleeping in until 9, blogging quick and then heading out to a busy day at the ESPN Wide World of Sports center. We started at the expo where runners could pick up their packets. I bought a pack of Rocktane Gu for the half marathon but was temped to [...]

Yesterday I travelled from Boston to Orlando for the Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon with New Balance! I arrived at my gate 20 minutes before boarding per my usual routine to find out that we were delayed. We ended up waiting over 3 hours to take off due to an inoperable plane. JetBlue needed [...]

I’m running my first half marathon of the season the first Sunday of October in New England. This will be my second and my third will be down in Disney World in November! I ran sprint distances in High School so training for longer races is not something in my bag of tricks. I used [...]

I can’t imagine what it must be like finding the time for long runs with class work and busy social calendar so I asked her [...]

This past weekend, I spent in New York City with Oakley Women to run the New York Mini 10K. How is a 10K mini you’re probably thinking? When the race first started in 1972, the organizer said it was a mini marathon for the women to run because back then, women were not always allowed [...]

On Sunday, I finally ran my first half marathon. For an entire year, I have been “training” for a 13.1 mile race since I finished the San Francisco Urbanathlon in November of 2011. Thanks to a busy schedule, last minute travel opportunities, and pure laziness, I trained but didn’t actually commit to any specific race. [...]

Tomorrow, I am going to the Junior League of Boston show house with two girlfriends. I’m a big fan of HGTV so I’m pretty excited about the concept. Thirty-six local interior design firms take over a room in this mansion and totally redecorate. It’s like a home makeover on steroids and I can’t wait. While [...]

On Sunday, I am running my very first half marathon. I signed up yesterday! I was planning on running the Nike Half in San Francisco before I learned about Kona. I continued my training and was hopeful I would find a half that would fit my schedule. With only 40 spots left, I paid the [...]
