Race Recap: Musical Madness 5K

Mommy, I am not impressed with your time

Last Thursday, my husband asked me if I wanted to run in a 5K in our neighborhood on Saturday.  My immediate answer was “Hell no, I’m too slow for a 5K.”  I’ve been wanting to hold off on running a 5K until I can improve my pace a little.  I haven’t run an official 5K [...]

Race Recap: More Fitness Half Marathon


On Sunday, April 14, I ran the NYRR More Magazine/Fitness Magazine Half Marathon in Central Park – my first post-baby #2 race at almost 4 months postpartum.  I knew I was in for a tough race because of the fact I’d only run 3 times in the 2 weeks prior to the race because of [...]

A mud race, a tricycle and a tantrum


On Saturday, hubby and 2 of his cousins ran the Warrior Dash in southern Maryland.  This was my third weekend in a row of being a race spectator; I didn’t mind sitting this race out since it meant not getting muddy. It took us about an hour and a half to get to the race [...]

Maryland Half Marathon

These guys are so fast, their feet don't even touch the ground

Race Recap: Clyde’s 10K

Yup, I look like death

On Sunday morning, I ran my first ever 10K.  For some reason, I am drawn to the longer races – marathons and half marathons.  I have been neglecting the shorter ones.  I’ve only run a handful of 5Ks and never a 10K.  I was pretty stoked for an automatic PR, but I also had another [...]

Race Recap: Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Run

Okay, he's a little bit excited

On Sunday, hubby and I ran the Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Run in Washington, DC.  I had no goals going into this race.  I knew I could try to push my pace and “race,” but I didn’t want to.  I wanted to run alongside my husband and enjoy the scenery in beautiful downtown DC.  I [...]

Race Recap: Rock ‘N Roll USA Marathon

Big mistake number 1 happened before the race even started.  Upon arriving in DC on Saturday morning, I realized I forgot something.  I knew I would forget something that I needed to bring with me.  Of course, I had to forget something I really needed: my KT Tape for my knee.  I started to panic [...]
