I remember that Monday. Sitting at my desk, hoping the calls wouldn’t flood because I really just needed to stream the Boston Marathon. I knew who I was looking for, who I was tracking. I was looking for the faces I recognized, the names I knew because I had heard soooo many podcasts starring them.… Continue reading My Top 5 – NYRR RUNTalk Recap
It’s like I can never go a full training session without an issue. On Thursday, I head out for a 4mi morning run before work and i felt the shin pain. I stretched a bit and took it easy. It felt better at times but there were points where I wanted to call it quits,… Continue reading Doc’s Orders – No Running… for now
Hello hello hello! While I have not been posting anything here in a while, you may have seen me discuss my training plans and some of my races on Twitter, and maybe even on Instagram.

I’m just going to go ahead and say: I killed it. Before I break down the goals and whether or not I accomplished them, I want to say that I’m absolutely and insanely proud of myself. I did so much that I didn’t think I would be able to and I stepped out of… Continue reading No Complaints for January
It’s insane to think that just 7 months ago I was in so much pain, barely able to get out of bed or stand long enough to cook something in the kitchen. To think that on Sunday, January 24th, 2016 I was able to not only run, but run 13.1 miles and earn myself a… Continue reading MJ Ran Her First Half!
No excuses. I’ve been gone. I got to Miami for the holidays and would log on here and I just couldn’t get to writing. I was so excited about being home with my cousins and my parents since I wasn’t home for the holidays the previous year. And then, I’d try to write and something… Continue reading Playing Catch Up on December
Happy Monday! So, as the holidays are only a few days away… it’s insane! Where did this year go? But seriously, many of us feel like we can take off the next two weeks because we were consistent throughout the whole year or that we just want to spend it with our family. If this is you, make it… Continue reading #ILoveMondays
