Night Before the Race: Hartford Marathon

After having such a miserable time at the Yonkers Marathon, I really wanted Hartford to go well – and so I was pretty nervous in the days leading up to the race. In particular, this time around, I was much more careful about what I ate! I started my carb loading on Thursday, having a bagel for breakfast, Indian curry over rice for lunch, and pizza + beer with Laura, Theodora, and Ashley for dinner. (Okay, so the beer wasn’t the healthiest, but it was plenty of carbs and I didn’t have way too much to drink, like I had done …

Celebrating my accomplishments

I’ve been a bit of a lazy bones so far this week. Of course, I had the Christmas festivities on Monday/Tuesday, but starting on Wednesday, I basically became a sloth – lying in bed, catching up on email/blog stuff, catching up on TV, and reading a bit too. Thank goodness for Mr. Ray at Pedal NYC – he whipped me into shape! Action shot intentionally blurry because I was doing my inverted rows THAT fast, obviously. My arms were insanely sore all day yesterday, so I used that as an excuse to continue being lazy and not accomplishing much. Today, …

News and updates

Oh yes, I’m here, just busy. I ran the Wall Street Run last week and have quite a story to tell there… but am optimistically hoping I’ll have time to write it up as an official race report and post it. No guarantees though – you all know I’m terrible about that. I’m currently wrapping up my project in NYC and will soon be shipping out to Dallas for at least the next few months – yes, back to the days of hotel cooking, water bottle weights, and trying to avoid the Consulting 15. I’ve gotten into a great gym …

Interview #2: B94.5 with the Morning Zoo

After my appearance on New York Nightly News, it would seem that the media at large have decided I have “a face for radio” 🙂 Just kidding. But I am about to make my faceless debut! For those of you in the State College, PA area, be sure to listen to B94.5 tomorrow morning – I’ll be on the air at 8 AM to talk about my marathon journey! If you’re not in the listening area, as far as I can tell there isn’t a way to listen online. However, I’ll see if I can get a recording or podcast …

Interview #1: New York Nightly News with Chuck Scarborough

Last night, my world record breaking self appeared on New York Nightly News with Chuck Scarborough. It was a crazy experience! The show was from 7:00pm-8:00pm, but I wasn’t going to be on until the last ten minutes, so I didn’t have to get there until 7pm. When I arrived, I was shown to the greenroom, told that the makeup room was next door, and that someone would come get me when it was time to go on. No more instructions than that! I’m a big girl though, so I got a little makeup touchup (really just a little powder …
