March Madness

March Madness
March is coming to an end, and another busy month has passed without a blog post. More importantly, April is just around the corner, meaning the London Marathon is fast approaching. I fail again at writing a more focused, insightful post, but too much has happened to just skip over it. So here’s another bunch of highlights ...

Halfway Point
It’s been over a month since my last update, and a lot has happened in that time. I’m now halfway into training–week 8 of 16. Crazy to know that the London Marathon is just two months from now! Although I’ve fallen behind a bit, I’m generally pretty happy with where I’m at in training. Some ...

9 Days, 3 Cities, 3 Park Runs
I finally made the trip home for the holidays, by way of New York. I know that my days of runnable weather are becoming limited, so I’m trying to get more disciplined with my training, even if it means running on vacation and in between periods of jet lag. Skipping a run one day could mean not getting ...

Good Morning, Hawaii
According to Spotify’s Year in Music, I kicked off 2015 listening to “Good Morning Hawaii” by Kolohe Kai. Apparently I was still having withdrawals from my cousin’s surreal Maui wedding. This was my first time in Hawaii, and also my first time ever running during a vacation. It was 70°F in December and the AirBnB where I ...
