Yeah, I know…I’ve been MIA in the blogging world. So you know this has to be big if I am writing a post about it! This week, I am giving away a FREE entry into the 40th Rite Aide Cleveland Marathon! Not up for running 26.2 miles? That’s cool because RACM has you covered for any distance: Full Marathon– Sunday, May 21 […]

For the first time ever, I feel so much pressure to achieve a running goal. Some thoughts that go through my head daily… – I have achieved so much up until this point after surgery: this would be the cherry on top – So many people believe in me: I can’t let them down – I put this BQ goal […]

As a runner, it is not only important to log miles but it is even more important that you use any down time you have to rest, stretch and perform mobility work. Today I wanted to share with you four key mobility drills you can do each day to improve your run game. These four key moves can be done […]

The other day I had a good laugh when I looked back at the goals I set for 2016 (read all about them here) and I wanted to share a “Year In Review.” 2016 Goal #1: Run a 3:45 in Cleveland I met my goal…just not in Cleveland! Three months before the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon, I ran the Myrtle […]

I cannot believe it has been 6 months since my hip surgery. In case you need a refresher here are my past posts: “You Need Surgery” Hip Surgery {1 Month} Progress {9-Wks Post-Op} Last Monday I met with my surgeon for the last post-op appointment and I am happy to report my hip is stronger than ever! Dr. Miyamoto took me through […]

This week began my first week of marathon training. Week 1 of 21. 20 more weeks, and I will be running my 11th marathon and first marathon post-surgery. The Race This was the first time I think I have ever stressed over finding a race. I knew I wanted a spring race and I knew I wanted a fast and flat […]

To read how my FIA Hip Scope went, read all about it here along with my first month progression. Pilates and upper body workout post-surgery can be found here! 7 Week Post-Op Follow-Up I met with Dr. Miyamoto two weeks ago and he said everything is healing well and my strength is coming back nicely. He recommended that I wait until week […]

I cannot believe that it has been a month since I had my hip surgery. I know I have been quiet here on the blog but occasionally posted updates on Facebook and Instagram. Time to share with the masses what has been going on! The last month has been interesting, to say the least, and I wanted to give you […]

This weekend will be the sixth time I will be running in the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon race series. I’ve ran in the marathon each time in the past and this year I will be running the half. I was hoping I would’ve been able to redeem myself after last year’s race but my hip had other ideas. I hated […]

This post has been sitting in my draft folder for two weeks! I haven’t been in a blogging mood lately (my husband encouraged me to write this) and wanted this post to be just right. “Surgery” is not a word any athlete wants to hear. Let me start from the beginning… Two weeks after the Myrtle Beach Marathon (read the […]
