Matt and I head to Colombia (!!) next week, so I’m in no way trying to rush us out of 2015. In fact, if that whole last week in December could move at a snail’s place so I can slowly (and safely!) get tan, I’d be much obliged. So without rushing 2015 away, now seems as good a time as any to share my early 2016 race plans with you.

What are you running in 2016?

Here’s what I’m signed up for so far:

“Finishing that 5K was the hardest thing I have ever had to do. I ate more fettuccini alfredo and drank less water than I have in my entire life. People always talk about triumphs of the human spirit. Well, today, I had a triumph of the human body. That’s why everybody was applauding for me at the end, my guts and my heart. And while I eventually puked my guts out, I never puked my heart out. I’m very, very proud of that.”

Oh, hello there.  Happy Fall, people.  My shin/ankle/calf situation acted up this week, so I modified a bit. I love having a workout schedule but I love having a pain-free ankle more, so I’m being flexible.

Before I get into the weekly rundown, I wanted to share an awesome, usable nutrition blog I’ve been reading. It’s called Meals for Miles. Kelly is a registered dietitian (MS, RD) and shares healthy, NYC-based food information and I’m looking forward to taking her advice.  Unlike other food-focused blogs, not every post requires I have a food processor (or the energy/interest in cleaning a food processor). She’s a runner and her posts are interesting and accessible.
