Splish Splash!

I can’t exactly walk on water, but I’m getting awfully good at running through it. You see, I’m babying a foot injury which prevents me from logging any land miles whatsoever. Smack in the middle of training for Ironman Canada   (which takes place on August 29th), some combination of increased mileage, travel-induced stress, poor […]

Party with a Purpose

Last Thursday I was one of hundreds of lucky guests at a rockin’ happy hour at the Boulder Chop House, hosted by The Women’s Wilderness Institute. TWWI’s mission is an inspirational one, to strengthen “the courage, confidence, and leadership qualities of girls and women, through the support and challenge of wilderness- and community-based experiences.” To […]

Run, Run Black Sheep

If you can’t find a running club that fits your schedule or style, or if you’ve outgrown your current coach and want to take your fitness challenge to a fresh new level, why not start your own group? My friend Nilda and several of her running companions did exactly that – founding New York City-based […]

Inspiration from Every Corner

Last weekend, I enjoyed a reunion with several of my high school girlfriends. Twenty-four years post-graduation – from an idyllic boarding school in Western Massachusetts where we learned, first and foremost to engage “the head, the heart and the hand” in our life’s pursuits – we’ve scattered across every corner of the country and around […]

Yummy Orzo

I’m no master chef, nor am I a nutritionist. But I do love delicious food that’s simple to prepare. Last weekend I was charged with making a side dish for a BBQ, and I went with my favorite orzo and fresh herb salad. It was such a hit among my friends at the party I […]

What it’s All About

On Sunday morning I raced in the Boulder Sprint Triathlon, the first in a series of three increasingly longer races that culminates with the Ironman 70.3 on August 8th. While I’ve been racing triathlons for many years and have participated in numerous events of varying distances, I have a confession to make: I was incredibly […]

Mount Sanitas

This is my first summer living in Boulder, Colorado, and I’m still learning all that the area has to offer in terms of outdoor recreation. One new discovery is Mount Sanitas – a strenuous three mile trail barely a stone’s throw from Boulder’s bustling downtown. Portions of the trail are suited to running, however some […]

The Best Solution For Old Race T-Shirts

Project Repat offers runners a fun way to display that stack of participant T-shirts that are piling up in your running drawer.

Start ‘Em Young!

Sunday marked the 100th running of the Dipsea, an historic, if somewhat eccentric 7.5 mile trail race from Mill Valley to Stinson Beach in beautiful Marin County, California. Among other slightly bizarre rules of the race, the eldest and youngest competitors benefit from a significant head start – enough to help 8-year-old Reilly Johnson edge […]

Home Again!

I’m happy to report that after a six-month hiatus, I’m back on board as a regular blogger for Women’s Running. I’ve missed being able to share a variety of news, reviews, personal experiences and inspirational tidbits with all of you – missed being an active part of this online community, which extends well beyond the […]
