Work hard, laugh harder. We all want to be happy. Have you ever watched children playing? Hear the sounds of their infectious laughter, high pitched giggles that make their seemingly permanent smiles contagious? Today I woke up happy. I woke up early with one thought on my mind: running. I find myself thinking about going
Last night I posted about my interval speed run and how good I felt after. So after I hit that publish button, I went ahead and enrolled in the Map My Run MVP (If you use Map My run, let’s connect email: firstname.lastname@example.org). It appears I was excited to use the interval feature on the
What are your favorites on this list? I would love to go kayaking and horseback riding. 11 more days to my 5K obstacle race!
I am 15 days away from my next race—Brooklyn’s 5K Foam Fest. I am really looking forward to this race because it was going to be my last one for a few months. After reaching two awesome goals (first half and Spartan sprint), the original plan was to end “my season” with a really fun race

But it’s it ironic how six months ago and six months ahead can feel like an eternity and a blink of an eye? In my perspective, six months is enough time to achieve
Saturday, March 29, 2013, I woke up energized as if someone shot adrenaline right into my veins. The night before, I made sure I did 30-minutes of yoga stretches for runners and would stretch again before the race. Grabbing a bagel with a teaspoon of peanut butter and a banana, I was ready to hit
My running journey began by not running as a child. In the fifth grade, I joined the track team, but it didn’t qualify me as a runner— not because I was ten-years-old —but because I barely even ran. My specialty was 400-meter walks that took precise movements of heal, toe, heal, toe. When I won
