A short running break and P90X3

IMG_8417

With the holidays coming up, I haven’t been able to find much time for blogging – especially now that this guy is getting busier by the day. It’s hard to believe it, but he’s going to turn 1 in just a few days! I cannot seem to figure out where the past year has gone.  [...]

Ready to race!

I’m going Turkey Trotting tomorrow.  I’m obviously aiming to smash my 5K PR since I’m clearly in top running shape right now. Just kidding.  I’m just hoping to not finish the race in last place.  Our neighborhood is hosting an informal Turkey Trot 5K for the second year in a row.  Last year, it was [...]

Injury update

Back to it!

KT Tape Pro = amazingness

Disclaimer: if you’ve had any kind of injury or other health problem that has kept you from running for 6-8 weeks or longer, I’m sorry that I’m being a whiny brat about a 1 week break from running. First of all, I have to say – do as I say, not as I do.  I [...]

Runner’s Knee

{For an update on my runner’s knee, please see this post from 2/2013} While I was training for the Baltimore Marathon, I started to occasionally have some slight pain and stiffness in my left knee when I was running.  It would come and go and was never the type of pain that made me have [...]
