Fuel for Fire

Guesting on this week's edition of the marathon training log is the "Con" of #NatConathon, the one and only Connor! Week 3 of #NatConathon training is complete and fueling was this week's hot topic (in addition to the New Jersey summer temps!).

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 →

One Down, Sixteen to Go

Awesome Cherry Blossom

A plethora of Nor'easters hit the east coast this year, bringing lots of snow, wind, and rain along with it. We weren’t sure what kind of scenery Mother Nature would give us at the 2018 Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Run last weekend, but lo and behold she actually delivered. Despite the chilly temps... Continue Reading →

2017: A Year on the Run

Looking ahead to what races we want to run in 2018 (we just claimed our guaranteed entry for the NYC marathon—our first one!), I'd be remiss not to mention everything we accomplished in 2017; a year we literally spent on the run. Our initial 2017 run plan included maybe 3 races. Then as the first... Continue Reading →
