First Run

I am sure the GPS wasn’t working because when I was done I didn’t feel as dog-tired as this kind of distance usually produces in me… .. but I was dreaming about running last night and when I woke up, I went for what I thought would be a short run but it felt so…

Running Plans And Otherwise

It’s been a couple of weeks since I ran. I was hoping to resume last week but recovering from my not-a-glamp camping trip took the better part of a couple of days and then the next few days got so busy what with trying to catch up on all that I had missed. Hopefully, this…

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,…

Run My Life

This week, my running goal was to run 12 miles over 5 days. Monday was the start of week 7 of the daily running challenge that I started with my virtual running-buddy and I announced my intention for the week in this post. So did I actually accomplish that goal? Let’s see. Monday goal: 2 miles I ran 2 miles …

Get More Done On The Longest Day Of The Year

Last week is gone, and the new one is already far spent. It’s past time to reflect on how I did on my goals last week and what I plan to accomplish this week. LAST Week’s Goals/ plans Read the Bible everyday – I did Read 3 books – I read a lot but didn’t…

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)…

The Second President

June 1st seems like time to start all over again but some things have to carry over from May, right? In May, I set a goal to get back into outdoor running so I started a challenge where I would run every weekday. Today is day 19 of the daily workout challenge that I started with my virtual…

Living In The Past

I failed to meet most of my goals last week so I’m living in the past, playing catch up, working on things I should have done already so I can hopefully get back on schedule for the end of the month which is… egads, tomorrow. How are we at the end of another month already?…

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…
