Ramblings From Taper Town: When Calling Myself a Marathoner Was Enough

October 1, 2014

In 2004 I ran my third marathon, the Chicago Marathon. Having had a grueling experience while foolishly running the New York City Marathon while injured the year before, I was thrilled to be injury free and running a flat race. I ran my first three marathons in a pretty simple fashion. I wore cotton, didn’t have […]

I swore I Wasn’t Going To, But This Changed My Mind {Why I’m running a marathon this fall & I need your help}

August 6, 2014

After completing 4 marathons in eleven months(!), I had zero desire to run yet another marathon in 2014. Despite how it appears, I’m not a serial marathoner, just a life-long runner.

1. Nike Pro Hyperwarm tights: These are affordable, no frills, cold weather running tights. There’s nothing fancy about these, but they are incredibly comfortable and kept me warm while running up the 59th Street Bridge into a headwind of hail on Saturday. (They run a bit big so if you get them online I’d suggest […]

November Favorites

November 27, 2013

1. Life Factory Glass Water Bottle with Straw Cap: As ridiculous as this sounds I love this water bottle because I can drink out of it while in downward facing dog or plank pose in a hot yoga class without having to come out of the pose. (I told you I’m ridiculous) The fact that […]
