Happy 2014 (aka Will I Stay Awake Until Midnight?)

Spoiler: I stayed awake. But my initial post-by-email attempt failed. Let’s try this again (and pretend this posted about 10 hours ago!) For those of us who work and play in the GMT +8 time zone (Me! Me! Me!), 2014 is less than an hour away. I haven’t even had a nap yet tonight, and […]

Fortunately/Unfortunately (Nov. 26, 2013)

Coach Holly here, reporting, live and well (fed) from northern New Jersey, folks!  I think travel inspires me to write Fortunately/Unfortunately posts, so here’s a peek at Sunday’s travels: Fortunately, modern technology (and the trick of time zones) allows me to wake up in Singapore, and go to sleep later (much, much, MUCH later) the […]

Pancakes / 1 Hour Pack / Guest Post

Well, folks, it’s just after 5 AM on Sunday morning (Singapore time), and I’m on a plane, heading for the land of turkeys and cranberry sauce and all other Thanksgiving-type shenanigans.  I am both ridiculously excited (Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, and my family knows how to celebrate), and a bit anxious (my To Do […]

Mount(ains and Miles) Doom

Some days, I fail as a blogger.  Even if though I ran a lot of miles and composed a slightly clever post about being a female endurance athlete yesterday, I definitely dropped the ball on my most important Blogger Job of the Day: Promoting my first-ever guest post, over at Mountains and Miles. I’m helping to fill […]

Chevron City to Surf Perth Marathon: Race Report (Part 1)

Guys, I’m still struggling to put this whole marathon experience into words.  You all know that my posts tend to be long-winded thorough.  And that goes double for race reports.  I hate to leave anything out – especially after you all told me a few months back that you really like to hear ALL the details […]

Perth Marathon: The “Evening-Of” Abbreviated Version

I won’t make you read 1,000 words – let’s just cut to the chase: Perth Marathon = 3:44:53 Sha-freakin’-zam. Given my training and goals, this was a very pleasant surprise.  Actually, it’s closer to ‘shock’ than ‘surprise’, really.  I know that with solid training (including speed work), I have a sub-3:30 in me, no question.

Perth Marathon: One Sleep Away!

It’s 9 PM, Perth time. Race flags off at 6 AM.  [Nine hours to go – but who’s counting?] We’re staying 1 km from the Starting Line (SWEET). The alarm is set for 4 (or 4:15?) AM. At the moment, I’m giving thanks that GCA and I had the foresight to stay so close to […]

Weekly Workout Round-Up: London Edition (Aug. 5-18)

I promise to post about my 27 mile run (in fact, I have much of the post written) – but Marathon day is just a few days away, and I’d like to be caught up with my training reports before I run.  Otherwise, posting them would be a bit anti-climactic, right?  And since the 27er […]
