MOTIVATION, why do you forsake me??

I ran a marathon, I got through the blues, I signed up for races to keep my training legit. But motivation once again eludes me.

Motivation. It’s tricky, right? There are days when I can’t wait to get out of bed and (literally) hit the ground running. I put on my running gear and as soon as I get out the door I start running. On other days that motivation is a hard thing to come by (these types of days… Keep Reading

Nope, today we lace up our kicks and hit the road, the trail, the track or if we’re desperate, the treadmill. Today… Keep Reading

In Need of Some Inspiration

It’s been a LOOOOONG winter. While we’re not getting hit as hard as Boston, NYC has been pretty miserable. I’ve not been the most, shall we say motivated? person when it comes to donning a pair of kicks and heading out to the park to run in circles for hours. At this point of the… Keep Reading

Post Marathon Blues Are a Real Thing

Post Marathon Blues So you’ve spent the last 18 weeks of your life preparing for and training to run 26.2 miles.
