We’re in week two of the spring reset and going strong. I am so much more motivated right now than in January. I think it’s the combination of the beautiful weather and not feeling hungry all the time as I was when marathon training. The awesome ladies in the challenge are also so [...]

Yesterday was a gorgeous spring day here. I headed out early for a small, local 5k. As I mentioned earlier, I planned to use this as my baseline for the summer to see where my legs are at.
The 5k was a Race for the Cure raising money for breast cancer, so it was packed [...]

How’s your weekend going?
I was happy to receive this in the mail yesterday:
After crossing the finish line, I was so happy to see my husband there that I totally missed the medals! It never crossed my mind until we were in the car heading home. I really didn’t expect I’d get it [...]

Alright, time for all the rest of the details!! (Continued from the pre-marathon fun here.)
We woke up to wind and cold, as predicted, with 100% chance of rain by 1:00 pm (when I’d be hitting the halfway mark). I woke up by 4 or 5 am but didn’t get out of bed until 6. [...]

Boston… where to begin?!
It was a truly amazing weekend.
We drove up on Saturday morning after my parents arrived to watch the girls (a HUGE thank you to them!!) We were lucky that some of our good friends recently moved to Boston so we got to spend the weekend at their house, and we [...]

I’m in Boston for a lovely kid-free weekend, and of course, all kinds of fun with the fellow Stonyfield bloggers and the Boston marathon tomorrow morning!
I’ll be back with all the details as soon as I’m able to! Here’s how the final taper week looked:
Monday: 45 minute spin
Tuesday: 5 [...]
