Running takes time, especially if you’re training for a race. Don’t be intimidated! Making time to run can organize your life, rather than mess with your priorities.
Ali is a blogger/writer, runner, and Crohn’s disease fighter. She’s an inspiration and such a fun person! Please enjoy reading about her, how she started to run, and how her running is affected by Crohn’s.
One of my New Year’s resolutions was to get uncomfortable. To me, this relates to any situation. I am fairly good at getting out of my comfort zone but there are a few areas I need to work on. One, specifically, is putting (or should I say removing) running in my routine. Of course, I make time to run pretty often – that’s not the problem. The problem is that if I planned on running in the morning and never got around to it, I cross it off my list. I won’t even think about doing a night run or an out-of-routine lunch run. If I don’t run when I planned, I’m not running that day.
After seeing Katie Holmes run the NY Marathon in 2007, Laurie Wisotsky was motivated to run her own. She is now a professional track runner and works as a Physicians Assistant. She has a dedication for others and herself. She is USATF Florida Master’s Athlete of the Year in Track and Field and has a 5:50/mile. She ran a 3:27 marathon in London, but turned her training into short distances that helped her win All American titles. Here’s her story and advice on training and injuries:
I am back to reality and having major Disney withdrawal Thankfully, I can recap and go through all my pictures for these posts! I am going to dedicate this post to everything pre-races and I’ll do another post on the actual races. If you don’t want to read all this – just know that all of the events are a BLAST and the Dopey Challenge was amazing to say the least.
Yup, it’s here. After 2 years, lots of money, somewhat repetitive training and planning – it’s here.
I have elite runner Tina Muir on the blog to talk about nutrition, fuel, and eating habits for runners! She is sponsored by Saucony, with PR’s of 1:14 for the half marathon and 2:45 for the full. She has goals to write an e-cookbook with simple and frugal recipes to help athletes be the best they can be. Here she is on fuel tips for runners to benefit our active lifestyle:
I’m starting off the New Year in Charleston, SC! My boyfriend and I are not really sure the exact date we started dating; sometime around the holidays, so we celebrate it on NYE. So, happy somewhat anniversary to us! I am loving being able to spend time with him between his military duties. Cheers to a new year, new goals, and more adventures!
