March's earworm is Air Supply. Yes, I was actually a fan back in the day and even saw them in concert many decades ago. March is a big birthday month in my family, and there was a lot of celebrating going on. Almost had the entire family together Sunday, but were missing my brother & … Continue reading Making Love Out of Nothing At all
I Can’t Make You Love Me
Still riding the love train (read about it here), and this month I give you Bonnie Raitt. You're welcome. I chose that one because sometimes races are just ok -- not necessarily anything you did or didn't do, it happens. Last month it was "What is Love? Baby Don't Hurt Me". Well, my race (read … Continue reading I Can’t Make You Love Me
What is love? Baby don’t hurt me
To keep my word for 2019, Love (read about it here), in mind, I came up with the idea to title each month's wrap with a song title that includes love. Lucky for me there are many, many songs with the word love in the title. The subject does not refer to being injured. I … Continue reading What is love? Baby don’t hurt me
November 2018: Did I pass?
When it comes to racing, 2018 was just an odd year. Some highs, some lows, and a lot of races that just didn't happen (but luckily weren't registered for so I lost nothing). Getting in scheduled runs Essentially there were no scheduled runs. No big goal races. Not as much racing as I usually do … Continue reading November 2018: Did I pass?
October 2018: Did I pass?
October was a lot less busy than September, and after a couple of months of travel -- mostly fun stuff -- I was ready for a slower pace. If you follow me on Instagram here, you know that I did run a half marathon on Cape Cod this weekend. In a Nor'easter. I was … Continue reading October 2018: Did I pass?
Couch to Active: Book Review + Giveaway
There's a good chance that you're intimately acquainted with Couch to 5k if you read my blog. You're probably already pretty active. But do you struggle with your motivation? Is it still hard to get out the door -- to run, to get to the gym, or even simply get out on your lunch hour … Continue reading Couch to Active: Book Review + Giveaway
September 2018: Did I pass?
September found me resting from the 1812 Challenge (read about it here), very briefly, then training hard for my next half, which is this weekend. And we traveled to NYC to celebrate Mr. Judy's birthday the week before my half, which included fasting for Yom Kippur, so it was a whirlwind of a month. I … Continue reading September 2018: Did I pass?
August 2018: Did I pass?
August was filled with the most miles I have ever run in what seemed like the most humidity, too. Not to mention warmer than normal temps. Getting in scheduled runs When it came to getting in runs, August was a doozy! Not so much in getting my runs done, but in the never-ending rain and … Continue reading August 2018: Did I pass?
July 2018: Did I pass?
I completed State #17 & Half #19 in July. I started the month strong with a course PR at my annual 4th race, despite very hot conditions (read the recap here). We finally had a very much-needed vacation (aka my racecation). But . . . how did July really go? Getting in scheduled runs I … Continue reading July 2018: Did I pass?
What type of runner are you? (Take II)
Three years ago I wrote about the different types of runners I've met -- the loner, the chatty cathy, the social runner, and so on. Today I'm thinking about the runners who run, or the runners who like other things but still run, and so on. I am joining the Friday Five 2.0 from Fairytales & … Continue reading What type of runner are you? (Take II)
