26.2 Thoughts After 26.2 Miles

We did it - Connor and I are marathoners! With more than 17 weeks of training under our (hydration) belts, we trekked 26.2 miles through New York City's five boroughs on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Many thoughts float in and out of one's head on race day, particularly when that race happens to be your... Continue Reading →

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 →

18 Miles Makes Us Feel Fine

Well hello, friends. It’s been a while! This past month has been a whirlwind of running and packing and running and moving...and more running. Earlier this month, Connor and I said farewell to Princeton and moved into a new apartment that's closer to the city. We've been enjoying a much shorter commute to work, so... Continue Reading →

Movin’ and Groovin’

The weekday runs throughout August have us scheduled to hit a 4-mile shake out on... Continue Reading →

The only caveat; they still can rear their ugly... Continue Reading →

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!). This week's training called for long weekend runs of 4 miles on Saturday... 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 →

One Down, Sixteen to Go

Week 1 of marathon training is officially in the books! It started off with some easy mileage, heading toward a weekly goal of 15 miles, which we took in stride (this will be the first of many running puns...you've been warned) and successfully completed. Starting to train for any race, let alone a marathon, in... Continue Reading →
