Photo 25 Dec 1 note Christmas morning run down to Navy Pier in Chicago. A great way to start the holiday. Burned some calories, got in a good mood, and saw the beautiful city on a very quiet morning. One other crazy runner in this photo. Oh, and I got to try my new cold weather gear! Hooded with a ponytail hole! Genius!

I’m curious about what ailment she had? They don’t explain what happened medically! Amazing none-the-less!

From the December 2010 issue of Runner’s World

It is incredible that this guy, and more than likely so many others, get away with this? How is it possible in this sport and not others? What are the repercussions? How can we trust that winners are really winners? I was fascinated by this article Eddy sounds like a jerk, but I also feel sorry for him. I feel sorry that the pressure of being an elite athlete drives anyone to cheating. I feel even sorrier for the athletes who are clean and lose to someone who uses performance enhancing drugs.

The joke is their “Value” package is $85-$400! The cheapest thing you can get is $59 for a few small print. Come on….I spent $185 to register and you aren’t going to give me at least ONE free photo!

Text 12 Nov 2 notes Post NYC Marathon Learnings
  1. Don’t blaze through Brooklyn.
  2. Listen to your coach when they tell you “Don’t blaze through Brooklyn, a minute upfront is two on the split.”
  3. If your friends ditch you at the start make new friends.
  4. The people you start running with may very well still be there at mile 17 so be nice.
  5. Let your husband, wife, friend run with you for a mile or two…it re-energizes you!
  6. Bring painkillers in your bag and take them as soon as you are finished.
  7. Smile at the cameras!
  8. If you want to see people know where they will be and look for them!
  9. Expect to say “I’m never doing this again” at mile 22 and then “I can’t wait to do this again!” once you cross the finish.
  10. Don’t blaze through Brooklyn!
