The 2013 Philadelphia Marathon

Whew, what a whirlwind week! Two midterms…and a marathon. I was totally spoiled last year when I was able to take the entire week of Thanksgiving off after the marathon last year for rest and recovery. This time, I had to take an orgo exam. Now I can finally breathe and relax for a couple [read more →]

Because I have such a hard time getting out to exercise in the winter months, I signed up for the Hyannis Half Marathon for motivation. Matt reluctantly agreed to sign up with me, even though he (understandably) wasn’t thrilled about running a winter race. Yesterday wasn’t exactly the miraculous 50-something degree and sunny race-day I [read more →]

2012 Philadelphia Marathon Recap

I finished my first marathon! The whole thing is still a little surreal, and I’ve been struggling with what to even write about it. First of all, I never thought I would be a marathon runner! I could barely run two miles before I signed up for my first half marathon last year. Now, I [read more →]

Moorish Chickpea and Spinach Stew…Revisited

The Philadelphia Marathon is this Sunday, and the end of my training hasn’t exactly gone as planned. I wound up with a sprained ankle two weeks ago, just a few days after my 20 mile run. I thought something felt off, but I continued with my mid-week 8 miler anyways. Bad idea. I figured I [read more →]

Baked Eggs with Cauliflower and Tomatoes

Now that my marathon training is in full force, Saturday brunches after my long runs have become a regular thing. And I love it. There’s seriously nothing better than coming back from a 13 mile run to a delicious brunch and some mimosas on the deck. Matt and I have been making a list of [read more →]

I (reluctantly) rolled out of bed bright and early last Sunday morning to run the B.A.A. 10K, the middle race in the B.A.A. Distance Medley. This was my first official 10K race ever, and I was actually really looking forward to it. (That is, up until my alarm went off at 5:45am.) I had been [read more →]

I became hooked on running after the B.A.A. Half Marathon last fall. Training for it was at times torturous, and I even regretted signing up at some points. I could barely run two miles at the time I started. Once I finally built up my endurance and made it through those long training runs, the [read more →]

Matt and I started off our Superbowl Sunday by running the Super Sunday 5-mile race. I somehow got Matt to agree to this even though he had just taken an overnight bus back from NYC. I was also feeling pretty tired since I picked him up at South Station at 5am, so I’m shocked to [read more →]
