Carlsbad Half Marathon 2020

No matter how many races I do, there’s always a battle of nerves and self-doubt. And going into this race, after all the challenges of the last two months, I didn’t know what to expect from myself. So I didn’t have a goal — just hope that I could have fun, and feel good. Miles… Continue reading Carlsbad Half Marathon 2020

Cookie: 30 weeks + Race Recap

How we’re growing?:  At 30 weeks (gosh, that sounds so far along…) baby’s close to 17 inches, 3.5 lbs., and the size of a cantaloupe! How I’m feeling?:  I’m overly emotional, battling sciatic nerve/low back pain, restless leg, and guys, I. am. so. tired!  You know what baffles me?  Pregnant mamas who sleep well… Speaking… Continue reading Cookie: 30 weeks + Race Recap

Carlsbad Marathon 2016 Race Recap

Rundown: 12/7-12/20/2015

As far as training goes, I’ve gotten a bit off track.  I’ve been busy managing a crazy kid (who hates to sleep), managing myself (who doesn’t function well without sleep… zzz…), celebrating Hanukkah, working, and watching 2015 slip by too quickly! We transitioned Liv to a “big girl bed” in November and she’s still not… Continue reading Rundown: 12/7-12/20/2015

Rundown: Thanksgiving 2015

Thanksgiving was well over a week ago, but we’re just getting back into the swing of things after our holiday in Chicago. We packed so much fun, family, and food into our never-long-enough visit to my hubby’s hometown.  We ate Lou Malnati’s famous pizza and Portillo’s.  We had lunch in the Walnut Room, visited Millennium… Continue reading Rundown: Thanksgiving 2015

Sunday Rundown: Revel Recovery

I’m excited to be blogging again and hope this space can help me document my running and motherhood adventures, as well as hold myself accountable to my (running) goals. On Sundays (or Mondays, because I’m a toddler mama, and life gets crazy), I like to do a “rundown” of the previous week and set new… Continue reading Sunday Rundown: Revel Recovery
