Blessing of the Fleet 10 Miler

Letting go of perfectionism has been such a freeing thing. With what a mess my life used to look like it’s hard to believe perfectionism played any role. However, during my hardest times I was plagued by knowing I wasn’t going to do anything perfectly, which means failure, and getting paralyzed in indecision or drinking… Continue reading Blessing of the Fleet 10 Miler

Courtney Roderick Run for Recovery – a great cause!

Have I been training hard or hardly training? Both, really. I think I may have learned the importance of rest for recovery. I used to just go go go through all injury and go all out every run but not so much anymore. This training cycle, on top of all the different workouts I’ve been… Continue reading Courtney Roderick Run for Recovery – a great cause!

Half Marathon PR!

Today’s inspiration: I heard it said recently about a situation that “it’s so tough because they just don’t listen”. It made me think about how many times I don’t listen, mostly to myself. What is my body telling me today? What is my mind doing? Am I motivated today to accomplish what I need to… Continue reading Half Marathon PR!

The results!!!

I didn’t mean to post this a week late. I finished up my last week of training as best I could (I had a calf muscle pull so I ended up taking an additional rest day) and then completed the New Bedford Half on March 20th. I was so used to training in the cold… Continue reading The results!!!

Wednesday: Rest day, which I definitely needed. Today: I didn’t get out until after 4pm (it’s been a… Continue reading Tues/Wed/Thurs catch up

Final long run, two weeks to go!

We took my Dad out belatedly for his birthday last night. I had too much salt, dessert, and dairy and I feel bloated today in my upper abdomen, which messes up my breathing. If I can eat clean the next two weeks I think I’ll be OK for the New Bedford half. This was very… Continue reading Final long run, two weeks to go!

Friday and Saturday catch up

Got my easy runs in Friday and Saturday. I was supposed to do 5 Friday but only had time for 4.25. I compensated by doing 7. Saturday, which was supposed to be a 6. 12 long next. We’ll see how that goes! ❤️🏃


Catching y’all up… My calf muscle is all healed up! That feels great. My ab muscle is still a mess, but doesn’t seem to affect my running as far as motion goes. It’s just sore. So I got my strength run in on Tuesday. It was very hard after my injuries and the binge eating… Continue reading surprised
