Halfway

I’m halfway there. After this morning’s run, I got a little notification that I’m halfway into my #ToughGirlChallenge running goal of 100 miles. At the beginning of May I started the daily workout challenge that I started with my virtual running-buddy and I’ve been keeping up with that by running at least a mile every weekday. In June, though,…

Summer Running

I’m in week 8 of the daily workout challenge that I started with my virtual running-buddy and getting a little bored with my daily running routine. Every morning, I lace up my sneaks and without spending time to warm up, I start running as soon as possible. Usually, I am hurrying because I’m trying to beat the sun coming…

Finish Strong

Finish Strong. That’s something I used to hear when I ran with the NYRR. I’d be close to the finish line, panting with what felt like my last breath, and an eager spectator or volunteer would shout out what they thought was encouragement but for me, sometimes felt like just an annoyance… Finish Strong… meaning,…

Adding Another Challenge To A Packed Week

Last week, I posted my goals for all to see so it’s only right that I let you know whether they were just for show or if I actually worked on and met those targets. Last week’s intentions: Read the Bible everyday – check Read 3 books – fail. I started 2 huge books but…

Shoutouts

At the end of Week 5 of the running challenge, I must give a shoutout to some of the people who’ve encouraged me along the way. I probably wouldn’t have started if it wasn’t for a conversation I had with my challenge partner  My Runkeeper friends who clicked to like every one of the workouts…

5K, the day after

The day after is often just as important as the day of. The day of a race is often when the cheerleaders come out and the streets are lined with people shouting encouragement so when you falter, you won’t fall. The music, the energy, the presence of other runners chasing the same goals, the reality…

Go Somewhere

Today, I attempted to run 3.1 miles – my first 5K of the season (more on that later). My route took me to the park where there was a group of children – age ranging between 8 and 13 years old probably. They had congregated in a little area close to the entrance of the…

Whether The Weather Permits

The sun hasn’t made an appearance in New York City in about 3 weeks. Okay, that might not be completely true but that’s what it feels like. It’s been rainy or overcast almost everyday for a long time so while we’re at the time of year where we want to start planning outdoor activities, it…

New Weekly Goals

Last week, I didn’t post my weekly goals. It was the end of the month and 2 goal posts around the same time felt a bit much. That being said, my intentions were to: Read the Bible everyday – I did Read 2 books from my TBR – I finished one (I reviewed it here)…

May to June

It’s in the bag. May, that is. May 2017 is gone not to be revisited except in memories, and you know, in recaps like this one. At the beginning of May, I set these intentions. Complete weeks 17 to 20 of the savings plan Read 10 books, including 4 Non Fiction, business titles Write creatively everyday…

Workout Challenge Day 15

Today is day 15 of the daily workout challenge that I started with my virtual running-buddy. It’s the end of the third week which is a huge milestone. If we were running every day instead of just every weekday, this would be the point where we would say we’ve started building a habit. It is starting to feel…

T.O.L. 5 25 17

The daily workout challenge continues. Two weeks ago, I announced my intention to run-walk everyday with my virtual running-buddy. Today is day 14 and the goal is to go for a run/walk outside for at least 1.5 miles. Comment below if you’d like to join the challenge so I can add you to the daily tracker. Runwright Update: Run 14 was a 1.7 mile…
