Race week: 2011 Rock n Roll Chicago 1/2 edition

What has two thumbs and is excited? This guy! Why? Because it’s race week! It’s race week! Not only is this rest week, it’s “let’s cram as much as possible and see how well Dan manages to stay sane” week! Before looking ahead, let’s review the weekend. So I wasn’t able to make it the...

When you can't go to the 5K, run your own...

Tomorrow morning I was going to run the 5K at the Second Annual Champion’s Run 10K & 5K presented by Adrenaline Sports Management! Pam’s schedule was changed and I have no one to watch the girls. I admit, I was a little bummed as I haven’t had a chance to run a 5K in good... Read more »

Long runs ahead!

Marathon training with CARA is in week 5 tomorrow…double digits. I’ve been going since last fall so I’m on a different schedule. Coach Jen and I got back into the training groove in November of last year, and we set the goals out for 2011…we’ve been working towards those goals since then. Any way you... Read more »

Weekend recap...

Weekend recap...
Happy Monday! Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! I know I did! Saturday morning, Coach Jen had me down for a 1:15:00 group run! So I decided I’d drop in on the Niles CARA group and run with them. They meet 2-1/2ish miles from our house, so it was easy to get there. I... Read more »

120 days to go...

120 days to go...
Boom! Page 108…best. page. EVER! Seems fitting that the day before training for the Chicago Marathon “officially” begins that I received my Official Results book from 2010. I had been waiting on the book for a while and honestly, I had sort of forgotten it was coming. It was cool to look through, I had... Read more »

It's National Running Day!

It's National Running Day!
A couple of weeks ago I shared 10 ways (from their website) to celebrate National Running Day! I’m doing a few of these today, like #1, but want to focus on two specifically that I’m doing to celebrate today. First, I’m going for a run tonight after work. Well duh, Dan it is National Running... Read more »

Hello, long weekend!

What’s better than a weekend before race week? A long weekend before race week! It’s Memorial Day weekend and I’m looking forward to the holiday and the extra day off! It’s a nice day to reflect and remember those who died while serving in the military as well as family members who have passed away... Read more »

Dizziness on the long run...again...

Dizziness on the long run...again...
This time though I didn’t freak out and quit. Friday went fine…I hydrated, laid low, got good sleep and got up on time. I was actually up early, so I didn’t feel rushed. I headed to the Glen, and got moving at 530am. Temps were in the mid 50s as I got going. The geese... Read more »

Ready to run...

Ready to run...
I’m 2 weeks away from my next 1/2 marathon of the year, 13.1 Chicago, and I’m getting excited! That also means my long run tomorrow is my last long, long run before that. I’ve got a 2:15:00 run set with the middle 6 miles at my goal pace for the half. I’m looking forward to... Read more »

A nice reminder...

A nice reminder...
A running friend and I have been talking about being in a rut, or maybe lacking motivation to get out the door lately. I personally feel like I’m going through the motions with training. I really enjoyed Coach Jen‘s post the other day, about laziness and training and it got me thinking. I don’t think... Read more »
