Team runDisney Photo A Day Challenge

For those of you following me on Instagram, you’ve probably been wondering what I’ve been doing everyday with the hashtag #TrDPhotoADay. Well, Team #runDisney gave us a photo challenge for the month of January to find a variety of items on out runs or related to our runs. Here’s what we needed to collect and here’s…

Disney’s Dumbo Double Dare

This year I did it! I signed up for the Dumbo Double Dare taking place in Disneyland, CA. Last year I debated it and when I went to register, it was sold out! This year I wasn’t taking any chances and registered as soon as it opened. I didn’t realize it was Labor Day weekend…

Princess Half Training: Week 12 & 13

I didn’t do my Week 12 recap at the end of last week because the only run I got in was the Ringling Bridge Run on Saturday, which I wrote a recap about. Since I was packing for my quick move from New York to Florida, I never made time for the short half hour…

2014 Race Progress and Goals

This year I wanted to run at least six races with at least two of them being long races. Maybe I was just setting myself up for success when I decided to do that, but I’m well on my way. I discovered that the past two years I’ve done five races with one of them being…

Hakuna MaZumba Will Have to Wait

In my 2013 summary I mentioned I would be opening my own Zumba studio this year. Well, that has been put on hold. I’ve been waiting to post this because I didn’t want to jinx things, but I’ve started a job with Feld Entertainment, so I just moved to Florida. While I was in New…

Ringling Bridge Run

This morning I did my second race of 2014; The Ringling Bridge Run. This four mile run went through Sarasota, across the Ringling Bridge and back. This was my second time running the bridge. The first was last November during the Turkey Trot. Waking up this morning was rough. I was having the best sleep…

Are You Up for a Challenge? And a Giveaway!

Are you bored with just running races? Have you concurred the marathon? Are you looking for an endurance and strength test? Look no further. This is the Tampa Special Ops Spartan Sprint taking place on February 15th Raymond James Stadium. This four mile run is “a mix of mud and gnarly outdoor obstacles combined with…

Princess Half Training: Week 11

Week 11 started off with my first short run on Monday. That meant I ran three days in a row, which is something that hasn’t happened for a long time. My guess is it was while I was in undergrad when I would go to the gym to watch the soaps. Anyways, I just got…

Central Park Hot Chocolate 10-Miler

Today I took another stab at the 10-Miler and it went much better than before. I would’t have believed that from the beginning though. I got to the location a little earlier than I planned. That meant I was cold and it was a struggle to stay warm. I kept pacing back and forth trying…

Princess Half Training: Week 10

This week started out slow. Monday seemed like the best option to get my first 30min run in, but that would have been three runs, three days in a row on sore body parts. I opted to hold off. Tuesday and Wednesday were consumed with hockey games. As a huge hockey fan I couldn’t pass…

New Addition to My Blog

Happy 2014 everyone! For the past two years I have shared my running and fitness stories. As entertaining as I think they may be, I know others want to share their accomplishments, training methods, and pre-race rituals. So this year I wanted to open my blog up to others and have guest writers. You can look…
