Philly Marathon Recap

Philly Marathon Recap

A year ago I hadn’t even started running. It’s true. December 8th 2011 was my first logged work out using Runkeeper on the iPhone. I began with walking and somehow transitioned to running then ran my first race on March 31, 2012; the Gardenspot Half Marathon. A few days later I stayed up ’till midnight […]

IT Band On the Mend!

IT Band On the Mend!

This was the first long run since my IT Band injury during the Rhumspringa half marathon back in April. Jason Lantz inspires me! He is definitely “…a bit less scientific in his approach. He chugged chocolate milk during the Virginia race and munched on watermelon dipped in salt.” You should read Sunday’s article Originally Published […]
