Six People for Six Point Two Miles

Though I’ve been slacking on posting in general lately, one area where I’ve really been slacking is with Take It and Run Thursday. I used to be really good about posting every week, but then I fell off the wagon. However, after reading the awesome question/answer on Sassy Molassy, I decided to jump back in and join the fun. This week’s question is, “You get to run the last six miles of your next marathon with 6 different people. They can be dead or alive; famous or not famous. Who are these people and why did you pick them? Furthermore, …

Attitude of Gratitude

I’m in a bad mood today with work again. We had a state-of-the-practice conference call today, and while leadership said only positive things and didn’t mention anything about layoffs, the fact that they were making big productions out of sales that in the past would have been minor wins did not inspire confidence. Rumor has it there are more cuts coming in December/January, so I’m not out of the woods yet. Additionally, today, my laptop crashed in the middle of me trying to get stuff ready for a presentation. I was working from home, and while I called our outsourced …

Unlike other fields, in consulting, starting a new project is like starting a new job: new coworkers, new responsibilities, new culture, and even new commutes. Instead of flying to St. Louis on Mondays and returning on Thursdays, eating expensive catered takeout sandwiches, and working out late night and early morning in the 24 hour hotel gym, I’m now battling traffic in the Lincoln Tunnel to drive to Jersey every day (1.5 hours …

A dozen donuts and a 27 hour day

I was thinking about being Wonder Woman for Halloween because I found a cheap costume, but decided against it when I realized how thoroughly unoriginal that is (no offense to any of you who are dressing up as Wonder Woman). Plus, Boyfriend’s Halloween party had a “drunk animals” theme (yeah, I don’t quite get it either). However, I came up with a costume that is original and also fits the theme. I’m going as a Woodchuck, complete with a six pack of my favorite Woodchuck Cider. Of course, in the spirit of Mean Girls, I’m going as a sexy woodchuck… …

Fueling for multiple marathons

We all know that the basic equation for weight loss is that calories in But what if you run marathons for fun on weekends? (Okay, so maybe I am one of the only ones with that problem, but let’s pretend it’s widespread). How much do you eat to fuel yourself in between without gaining weight? And how safe is it to drop your calories in when you’re increasing your calories out so drastically? These are the questions I’ve really been struggling with as of late. There isn’t a multi-marathon nutrition plan; the closest thing I’ve found is reading Dean Karnazes’ …
