NYC Marathon Recap

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a race recap- but felt like spilling my thoughts here on the NYC Marathon this past Sunday. First and foremost – thank you to the NYRR for having me out to NYC for a live podcast on Friday and for the great hospitality and support of my podcast. I … more »

WHY I MINI

I’m here to tell you WHY I LOVE the 500 Festival Mini Marathon. I ran this race for the first time in 2005. It was my very first half marathon. My mom, dad and one of my sisters did it too. My sisters and I actually just recorded my third podcast episode and we discuss the … more »

This is the Right Time.

My writing has been mediocre at best lately. I haven’t had much to say. It’s like a conversation. If you don’t have a lot to say, don’t feel like you have to talk just to talk. Those conversations are boring. But I’m feeling myself again. Lucky you. I took 6 weeks off for the darn plantar … more »

Boston 2014 Recap

When Boston registration opened last year I had decided I wasn’t going- then a couple days after registration opened, I gave in to the pressure of everyone else registering.  I felt like I’d be missing out on something incredibly special in the running community if I didn’t go. I decided if I would run, I’d … more »

Hoosier Half Marathon Race Report

Today felt like progress. I anticipated I’d run somewhere between 1:35-1:37 and I ran a 1:36:08. I wanted to run 20 miles for the day for my last long training run for Boston, so we warmed up 3.5, ran the race and cooled down 3.5. Correct, this is a much more fun way to get … more »

Being content where you are.

Today I woke up wanting to run. Most days it takes a good 2 hours before I even want to think about running. I’m not the best morning person. Today I was feeling motivated and encouraged, which was good news because yesterday I was in a funk the first part of the day and sat … more »

How I conquer a hard run on tired legs: Experience

Good news- I think my hamstring is a little better, more importantly, it’s not any worse!  The past two weeks have consisted of running 3-4 days/week, biking 2-3 day/weeks and swimming 1 day/week. Melody came over and gave me my first real sports massage and it was awesome. I truly think it helped and we … more »

Kassi’s First Marathon

For a long time now, I’ve been wanting to do a monthly inspiring highlight. There are so many people who inspire me and I want to share it with you.  For a few years, I’ve been following along one of my  high school classmates journey to a healthy lifestyle. She has come a LONG way, losing … more »

Week 2 – Mohican 50

If you noticed I really only blog about training… exciting I know but its what I like to talk about. Here’s another training log.Overall, it was a good week. I am not where I’m ultimately hoping to be but that is expected with taking 8+ weeks off any real training. I ended up running every … more »

Strong.

Today I felt strong. I only ran for 30 minutes, but during those 30 minutes I thought a lot about the past year. I thought about the decisions I’ve made, the hard ones, the easy ones, the happy moments and the sad moments. I thought about what I want to do, all the things I … more »
