Work With Me

Sam Costa Half Marathon 2017 Race Report

I’m trying to do a quick weekly recap of my workouts just to keep an eye on what I’m doing and how I’m progressing. And if anyone is interested in the post baby running progress, it might be fun to follow along. I took it easy on all the miles this past week coming off … more »

Second Trimester Dreaming

Every time I’m through the first trimester I start dreaming of running fast again. I’m usually so tired and blobby feeling the first 14 weeks, and when I start feeling better, I start thinking about getting back in shape. It’s so far away and so close all at the same time.
