Join Me On This Run: Sussex County, NJ

It’s no secret that I love to run. I love running in Rochester…my running family is there, and the city has some incredible parks to explore. I love running in Los Angeles…the sun is always shining, and there’s an odd beauty to the dusty, dry mountains out there. I love running in Singapore…gear requirements are […]

Weekly Workout Round-Up (Oct. 21 – Oct. 27)

It’s Nov. 20…so I have exactly 1 day before I’m a month behind on Weekly Workout Round-Ups (except now, in the time between draft and publication, it became Nov. 21 in Singapore.  I’m officially a month behind).  Thankfully, I have a pretty detailed workout log and my photos to help me recall each day, plus […]

Coach’s Corner: What Winter Running Gear Do I REALLY Need??

“How does a gal living in the tropics of Singapore have any business writing about winter running gear?” Dealing with uber-humidity? Sure, she can totally write about that. But freezing temperatures, icy winds, and blowing snow?  Give me a break. But wait-wait-wait just a second, and give me a moment to explain.  You see, prior […]

Great Eastern Women’s Run: A Strong, Beautiful Cheer-fest!

So this morning, this happened: I heard from several running friends that the Great Eastern Women’s Run (5K/10K/21K) was one of the best races in Singapore.  This is the only female-only event in Singapore (or perhaps that I’ve seen ANYWHERE) that refuses to play up the “girlie” part of a female-only race*.  The shirts are […]

Wear some make-up. 2. Tie your hair back. 3. Wear sunglasses (to hide slit, shut, or sunken eyes). 4. Smile. […]

“Deeply Rooted”

“You want to be purposefully rooted in the place that you live.” -Scott Austin, Pastor at Artisan Church in Rochester, NY Why yes I do Pastor Scott.  YES I DO. All the way back in 2006, KMN and I were fortunate to stumble upon the young, vibrant Artisan Church community just down the street from […]

Weekly Workout Round-Up (Oct. 7-13)

Last week was characterized by two things: 1. Not much running. 2. A return to yang yoga. Both of these were good things.  As I’ve said before, I tend to use the post-long-race week as both a physical and mental break from training.  I take a step back from my intense Sunday afternoon workout scheduling […]

TNF100: Final Thoughts on a 50K (Race Report Part 3?)

50K Race Report, Part 1 50K Race Report, Part 2 The Aftermath When I left you at the end of Part 2, I had just crossed the Finish Line.  There was a reasonably nice spread of Finish Line goodies: water, sherbet pops, Subway sandwiches…and probably a few other items.  Unfortunately, after 4 miles on over-crowded […]

Weekly Workout Round-Up (Sept. 30 – Oct. 6)

So much for posting this stinker on…uhhh…Sunday?  Ah, well, there was too much 50King to discuss this week to be overly concerned about Workout Round-Ups.  Most of you know what a taper looks like, anyway.  But I’m a sucker for completeness, so here’s a quick rundown of my workout week leading up to the North […]
