Hangovers and Running In Their Wake

I suppose I should have posted this on Tuesday morning, but I just discovered it today, and thought it might still be helpful for the weekend. All about hangovers, from Diet Detective. I’m fortunate enough not to ever get hungover. Some refer to it as a superpower. In any case, it’s a helpful trait to have on weekends when I want to go running but I drank a ridiculous amount the night before. In fact, this summer I did an 8 mile race the morning after attending a microbrew festival in Albany, NY, at which you were given a punch …

New Year’s Resolutions

88% of Americans make New Year’s resolutions, and only 20% succeed. Scary! Every year I make TONS of New Year’s resolutions for how I’m going to make my life better (told you I was a perfectionist). One year I made so many I couldn’t even remember all of them! Clearly that is not the way to join that 20%. In fact, this article on New Year’s resolutions fitness tips warns people to limit the number of resolutions you make. Although that article warns people to break your goal into smaller goals, I’ve never really been good with keeping the “everyday” …

New Year’s Eve Decisions

Oh, New Year’s Eve. It has the potential to be one of the greatest drinking nights of the year, but has so much pressure to fulfill that potential that it usually falls short. If you’re living in NYC, there is even more pressure due to what has become the typical way to celebrate: overpriced open bars. (If you’re wondering what this has to do with fitness, the supposed topic of my blog, I promise the relevance will eventually become apparent) The open bar is quite a conundrum because you have to order you tickets weeks in advance. You check out …

Exploring the Dangers of Running

Today’s post is going to be a bit more serious than usual. Diet Blog had an article today called Why Do Healthy Athletes Die of Heart Attacks? This is a topic that’s a bit hard-hitting for me. I’m sure a lot of you in the running community heard about the guy who died at the Chicago Marathon (due to heat stroke, I believe). If you were really watching the news, you would have heard that another runner died the same day during the Army Ten Miler in Washington, DC. That runner was my friend and former co-worker, Mike Banner. I …

About My Running Goals: A Q&A

How did you start running?I’ve spent the last two years traveling the country on weekends (while holding down a full time job during the week), and am now poised to become the youngest woman to run a marathon in each of the 50 states. I will be setting this record on June 6, in Minneapolis, MN. What might seem like a cool stunt becomes even more amazing when you consider that I just started running four years ago, having previously been a total non-jock and the worst student in my grade school gym classes. I began to challenge this idea …
