Almost five months and halfway through! It’s amazing how time is flying. Last Sunday, I realized running will be a lot different. I felt so much pressure on my bladder; it was pretty uncomfortable! And as I was running, thinking about the nearest bathroom, I realized there aren’t too many options on my current route. […]

I didn’t run a whole lot during my first trimester due to nausea and fatigue. I listened to my body and rested A LOT. When I was able to get out running, I was surprised how different it felt. The runs I did get in felt good – I felt like myself. But my pace […]

After a long blogging hiatus, I’m back. And with some exciting news! We’re expecting a baby in June! I had planned on taking a break from the blog. I started this blog in 2013 to chronicle training for my/our first marathon. Over the course of those four months of training, my husband, brother and I […]

A very much delayed recap of the Dulles Day on the Runway 10K! This is a not-very-well-publicized, very cool DC area race – worth the drive from NC to DC! Plus we got to hang out with my brother Matt over the weekend. We ran this race last year and loved it. From the unique […]

(Catching up from Labor Day weekend runs!) After our morning run in Boothbay Harbor and lobster rolls for lunch, we drove to Bar Harbor in Acadia National Park for my cousin’s wedding. With only about two days in Bar Harbor, we really wanted to maximize our time in Acadia National Park. We planned on doing […]

What a refreshing change to go for a run and not be drenched with sweat! I think Mike and I have gotten used to the heat and humidity in Raleigh. But running in Maine was a welcomed change! Mike and I stayed in Boothbay Harbor, a small, picturesque town in Maine, over Labor Day weekend […]

Beautiful!

Now that we’re living in Raleigh, we’re exploring Greenways that are close to our new home. For our longer weekend run and a change of scenery, we decided to check out a new Greenway, Reedy Creek. Even at around 10 am, there was plenty of parking at the North Carolina Museum of Art, giving us […]

Mike and I have been curious to try trail running but hesitant to do so without special trail running sneakers. Recently, we had the opportunity to try out Salming’s new trail shoes, the Salming Trail, during a trail run demo day hosted by Runologie and Salming, at Umstead State Park in Raleigh. I was a […]

I’ve missed this route! When we lived in DC, we could run from our condo building along the National Mall to the Lincoln Memorial and back for a perfect 6-mile route. While in DC last weekend, my brother Matt and I ran the usual Mall route (Mike was unfortunately sick). Besides the wonderful memories that […]

At our new house post-run club

Without having an upcoming race on the calendar and having the temps in the 90s every day, it’s tough to stay motivated and keep to a running schedule. Mike and I have found the local running clubs to be both fun and motivating. I’ve mentioned a few of them including Blue Run Club and Big […]
