Race Report: Outer Banks Marathon

Outer Banks 2009 Marathon Finish

I am by no means in shape to run a marathon now (though hopefully I will be soon!), but all the hype around this Sunday’s NYC Marathon is making me nostalgic for marathons and all the fun that goes into them. I was reading Jessie’s blog and she’s prepping to run the Outer Banks Marathon in a few weeks, so I then went to send her a link to my race report of when I ran it back in 2009. I didn’t find it on my blog, but instead, I actually found a folder on my computer that had some …

How to Run Two Marathons in Six Weeks

There’s been a lot of great weather for racing lately – Chicago was held on a near perfect day (where the winner was less than a minute from the marathon world record!), and I also just ran the Hartford Marathon that weekend which was similarly lovely. However, sometimes even when the weather is perfect, it’s just not your day… and you want to run another race. (Or, maybe you had so much fun you can’t wait to do it again!) I ran my second marathon six weeks after my first marathon (and my third one week after that!), and since I …

Race Report: Chasing the Unicorn Marathon

Although I alluded to it slightly in my Friday post, I wasn’t completely up front about exactly how nervous I was about my Saturday marathon. I was terrified. I drove to New Jersey mid-afternoon on Saturday (although the race was in Pennsylvania, it was literally 2 miles from the border and my hotel was actually in New Jersey by the Trenton airport) and had originally planned for a quiet night of catching up on reading, TV, and blogs, since I thought that might help calm my nerves. But after it took me forever to find the race start/packet pickup (it …

Race Report: Vermont City Marathon

The first thing I felt when I woke up was nervous… had it been a terrible idea to eat all that fried food and then drink beer for dinner? The answer was, surprisingly, no – I was a bit dehydrated from the alcohol, but other than that was totally fine. Yay! I tried to be very quiet while getting myself together so as not to wake up our roommate, Sara, but as it got closer to time to leave, my mom and I started wondering if we should make her. She was doing the last leg of the relay, so …
