Enjoying the Reverse Taper

2015-05-01-13.09.29.jpg

Happy Monday, friends!  I can not believe that it has been two weeks since the Boston Marathon.  I feel fully recovered and ready to run.  Yet, I realize that I am not ready to really run yet.  I am fully enjoying this rest and recovery stage… and taking full advantage. I do have two quirky […]

My Running Journey: #RealChampions

2011-08-03-09.09.32.jpg

On behalf of Champion, I have been asked to share my personal running journey.  My running story doesn’t have any triumphant returns, remarkable life changing events, or newsworthy segments.  What makes my story mine, is the fact that I keep going… even when I had all the excuses to give up.  I kept persevering.  I […]

I am a work in progress.  This marathon training cycle I find myself  struggling as I juggle the art of balancing motherhood and running.  I feel like there is always someone or something that needs my attention.  Often a ball (important item) or two fall and I am left scrambling to pick up the pieces.  […]
