Colorado Women’s Classic 5k: Race Report

Race morning, Sweet Pea is in my room at 5:45 am. “Can we snuggle? Open your Mother’s Day present!” She’s standing an inch from my face. I mentally berate myself for convincing her to wait until Mother’s Day to give me the present she was dying to give me the day before. My alarm is […]

Prairie Dog 10k Race Report

When I found out I was pregnant with Sweet Pea in June 2011, my first thought was “Yay!” My second thought was, “Shit, this is not going to be the summer I break 47 minutes in the 10k.” I was right. I spent that summer being bloated and nauseated as a little human began to […]

Coffee Date January 2017

Can we do coffee again? (I don’t know about you but I had a lot of fun last time). Are you on Instagram? I’m on Instagram. We should follow each other if we’re not already following each other. Or we shouldn’t… depends if you want to see all my fitness posts… My plan is for my […]

Race Report: Wobble Gobble 5k

The morning started like any other race morning, with two packets; a square packet of Quaker Instant Oatmeal and a rectangular, tube-like packet of Starbucks Via. Unlike a usual morning, I Instagrammed my breakfast. I spent a moment wondering if I was a loser or a cliche or both because really? Choosing a cool filter […]

Race Report: RBVFC Firefightin’ 5k

Summer vacation is for drinking homemade sangria in a red Solo cup on the beach, going out for Soft Serve while the sky turns pink, building epic sandcastles, jumping waves, happy hour on the third floor deck, and racing at sea level. My family (including my parents, my sister, her family, and one of my cousins and her […]

I am a Recovered Impostor Syndrome Sufferer

When I was a kid, I hated sports. I dreaded gym class. I was picked last for every team. I flinched when anything smaller than a soccer ball came near me. Or not near me. And if we’re being honest, it wasn’t just the smaller balls that gave me panic attacks; dodge balls, volleyballs, and tetherballs terrified […]

What I Learned From The Fittest Man in the World (Cross Training Works!)

Ever since I had Lady Bug, who is coming up on her second birthday, every time I took one step forward with my running, I took two steps back. It’s been beyond frustrating. I still want to qualify for and run the Boston Marathon someday, and I am not giving up on that.  But right […]

Race Report: 2015 Newman YMCA Turkey Run 5k

I ran the Newman YMCA Turkey Run 5k on Thanksgiving day in Seekonk, MA. It was my first race after I spent the better part of this year injured and unable to commit to any running beyond a 30 minute run-walk. I have felt really crazy over the past few weeks, mainly due to normal […]

Workout Wednesday Vol. 24: What Crossfitters Wish Runners Knew

CrossFit is very popular, but it gets a bad rap for causing injuries and inspiring cult-like behavior. I have been very curious about the phenomenon and I had a blast researching and writing this article, which was originally published in the August issue of Colorado Runner Magazine. By the time I sent it to my […]
