Same ol’, Same ol’

April 30, 2008

Week #9; Tuesday: Well, Tuesday’s run was not original — quick five miles on the Crescent Trail — but it was pretty cold last night, which made for a good time. For whatever reason, I have no energy.  I have a feeling that this is a result of my new No Fast Food Diet.  The […]

Racing, racing, racing for HOPE

April 28, 2008

Week #9; Monday: I just registered for the Race for Hope on Sunday.  I can’t find anyone who will drive up to Philly with me on that day, so I’ll have to pass on the Broad Street Run (so sorry, Kate).  But, luckily there is another race to fill my open slot.  AND I have […]

April 25, 2008

Friday; Week #8: Wow, I suck at keeping a blog. Scott pretty much threatened that he wouldn’t run another step until I update my blog; so here goes… Even though I have a bad memory and forget to write it down, I have actually been logging miles. I think I took a few days off […]

A chuckle by the water cooler

April 9, 2008

Week #6; Wednesday: Well, I was feeling heavy and full of delicious cake icing so I decided to add a run to my weight training day. I did a quick two miles at 7:33 minute pace, and leg presses forEVER…ok, workout was fine. The REAL fun was chatting it up by the water cooler with […]

I’m baaaaaccckkk………

April 2, 2008

Week #5; Tuesday: To get the ball re-rolling on the training, I took a fast-paced run around NorthWest DC. Lost in nostalgia, I ran past all my old residences in Columbia Heights, Adam’s Morgan, Howard University, and then ended up at my friend’s house on 2nd Street. Running past the old neighborhoods was both sad […]

Miami Baby!!

April 2, 2008

Week #4; Weekend: Friday through Monday I did absolutely NO running.  Actually, I didn’t exercise at all unless you count walking around South Beach and dancing the night away exercise 🙂 Oh yes, that’s right, this weekend I was working on my tan on Miami Beach with friends who flew in from Bangkok. Since this […]
