Run on my humble friends

by Rebecca on April 18, 2014


I let the errands and chores slide a bit this week when I had the opportunity to catch up with both of my best friends who live on the other side of the country. Sometimes we don’t for weeks, sometimes we talk every other day.  It really depends on what’s going on or what we’re […]

A few weird things and a killer track workout

by Rebecca on April 17, 2014


So strange things have been happening around here lately. It all started the other day when Charlie became obsessed with the baseboards.  He was running around in circles and barking at nothing.   It was so weird, like he was on a hallucinogenic drug or something.  Is there a doggie dealer that comes out to the […]

Looking back to Boston 2013 #bostonstrong

by Rebecca on April 15, 2014


My  buddy Tonya and I,  who also happens to be my best friend since 7th grade (along with Kim who was not able to make the trip) Most of you know that last year I ran the Boston Marathon.  To look back on the events of that day feels quite surreal.


Yes, that is a composting bin in the background.  I really need to get it together with this marathon training stuff, so I figured that writing about my training might force me to come to terms with how pathetic this cycle seems plan-wise.

A dog, a weird dude and a pair of trail shoes

I have three track meets lined up between today and tomorrow, but before I take off and live the next two days inside the red oval, I have a few things I want to share.

A ride on the pain train

(Selfie while hiding huge zit on chin) I took my brand new, massive zit out for a ride today on the pain train.

Trying hard to be a try-hard

by Rebecca on April 8, 2014


(Trying hard) I spent a good part of my college years waiting on tables, and I thought, as I graduated from that time of my life, that everyone should be required to do so at least for a while, before they are allowed to eat at restaurants.

Unwinding the tightly wound

by Rebecca on April 3, 2014

It’s been a long time since I have rolled out of bed for a 4:30 a.m. workout.  Back in the day this used to be the norm, but then I got old and decided that sleeping needed to become more of a priority if I didn’t want to look like an old hag by the […]

Sometimes you get what you wish for

I never win anything.  Even the little ads that pop up on my computer give me false hope.

Running up hills and other fun stuff

by Rebecca on April 1, 2014


We conquered the mountain again today. Again this week I decided to substitute a hilly run for the track.  Not only do I have a bit of a mental block against suffering on the red oval so soon after my last marathon, but I also feel like running up hills, in many ways, is much […]
