Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

Hi everyone! I hope you had a nice week. It has been rather chilly in DC this week! Luckily I made a recipe today that packs enough heat to warm you up after a long and cold day! It is also perfect for any upcoming Super Bowl parties you might attend!

Half Marathon Round 2 – Training Plan and Goals

Hi everyone! Happy Friday!!

I wanted to share my goals and training plan for the Seashore Half Marathon this April.

I was really happy with the result of my first half marathon, but there are a few things I want to do differently this time around.

First, I would ideally like to run this half marathon in under two hours. I am not exactly sure how attainable that goal is though because I finished the last one in 2 hours and 27 minutes. There were other factors like extreme heat and humidity, so I’m hoping the weather will be better this time around.

Therefore, my attainable goal (hopefully) for this marathon is to run it in 2 hours and 10-15 minutes. My mega goal will still be to run it under two hours, but if this doesn’t happen I’ll understand!

To meet my goal of running faster I am using a slightly different training plan that incorporates speed work. I am also running all the way up to 12 miles this time. Last time I only ran up to 10, which was fine, but I’d rather not tack on 3.1 miles on race day!

Goals for 2014

Hi everyone!! Happy New Year!! Sorry that I’m a little late on my 2014 goals — this has been a busy first week back at school! I am taking some really interesting classes this semester though so I am excited about that!! I also turned in the first draft of a major paper I am writing this semester. Needless to say, I am happy that it’s Friday!!

I wanted to talk to you all a little about my goals for this year – specifically running goals!  After running the Rock ‘n’ Roll half marathon I mentioned that I had a desire to run another half marathon.
