What’s Beyond That Line?

Will I cross that line? Well, this is it. After 17 weeks of training, this Sunday Connor and I take on the TCS NYC Marathon. Twenty-six point two miles through the five boroughs of New York City. It’s been 17 weeks of early mornings. Marathon training waits for no one. Alarms noisily woke us at... Continue Reading →

Swift Thinking

We did something bad. Are you ready for it? We skipped our Saturday run. I know, I know it’s only the second week of marathon training, but it's ok, we’re just gonna shake it off. The situation was delicate, to say the least. We began week two with 3 hot and humid miles on Tuesday... Continue Reading →

2017: A Year on the Run

First of all...we did it! And we completed the race in under three hours, which was our goal (not too shabby... Continue Reading →

Pre-Race Day Thoughts

It's your not-so-typical Natalie/Connor Friday night here at the happiest place on earth. Instead of gallivanting around the parks as per usual, we are lounging in our room before dinner, awaiting the much-anticipated event of the last few months: the Walt Disney World Half Marathon. This is the first half marathon for us both and just... Continue Reading →

15 for 2015

We're back in New Jersey after a long, relaxing (and much-needed) vacay in Wisconsin. This is also the first post of 2015, which makes it the perfect time for a 15 for 15 list! You all know how much I detest New Years resolutions; they're mostly false promises that very few people actually adhere to and... Continue Reading →
