5 Ways Spectating or Running a Race Can Renew Your Faith in Humanity

This past week has been a tough one in this country. Rather than the election signaling the end to tensions and weariness with political back and forth in the media and among friends and family, I’m sure I’m not alone in having my social media flooded with arguments, despair, fear and hope. I’ve written before […]

High Five Friday

This weekend was always one of my favorite weekends of the year in NYC…Marathon weekend! I’ve been seeing posts all over social media from my excited runner friends getting ready to tackle the 5 boroughs in 26.2 miles and like I mentioned in my post this week about not racing, I am already feeling chills […]

On Not Racing

Moving to Vermont from NYC has been a culture shock in a lot of ways. Something that I always took for granted living in New York was the abundance of races on offer every weekend. There was always something to sign up for, always something to train for. Thanks to the NYRR policy of offering […]

Monthly Workout Round Up – Yoga Stretch Routine for Runners

Yoga – is there anything so complementary to running that runners are more afraid of? Well, maybe not all runners (Christine, runner and yogini extraordinaire springs to mind), but many runners I know mumble something about their hamstrings and severe lack of flexibility when the subject of yoga comes up.  This month in our workouts […]

Your Distance Does Not Define You

“That’s the kid’s race.” That’s what a friend of mine heard from a fellow runner recently at an event of several ultra distances. The runner was talking about the shortest distance on offer – the 50k distance my friend was about to run – as if it was somehow not worth doing, something easy a […]

Why Running Is Like Therapy

There are so many reasons I go for a run. I might be training for an event and have a planned run to get me that much closer to my goal. Occasionally I just feel slothful and low energy and I head out for a run just to get myself moving. But mainly, these days, while I’m […]

Why You Need to Run Fast

Everyone needs to run faster. No, don’t worry, I’m not judging anyone for their pace, or suggesting that a faster time in a race is somehow better. What I mean is, to become a better, stronger runner, you should be incorporating faster running and speed work in your weekly training. Speed workouts should be a part […]

Monthly Workout Round Up – Core Workouts for Runners

Once upon a time, the words “core exercises” used to make me cringe. One of my clients still remembers me telling her, “You are not an apple,” when she first told me she really wanted to work on her core. To work on your “core” to me brought forth countless infuriating articles in women’s health and […]
