SFM Love

After a long day of travelling, last night I happily landed in San Francisco with a big weekend ahead.  Last year, this was a very busy week and weekend for me, so it’s kind of become a joke that SFM week is the busiest of the year.  When I found out I was leaving the […]

Do’s and Don’ts for Race Week

Now that I have had time to really sit back and reflect on everything that happened on Sunday, it’s blaringly apparent why Sunday happened the way it did.  I am usually a very methodical, organized person in the weeks leading up to a marathon and this was not the case for this race.  Even though […]

SFM Training: Week 12

Well we all know how the marathon turned out, but what happened in the week leading up to it?  I actually did taper a little and just did easy runs at the end of the week.  It coincided well with a busy work/life schedule so I used the taper to my advantage, BUT the busy work/life […]

Race Report: 2011 San Francisco Marathon

I always say that if you can learn lessons on race day, it is a successful one no matter what the time on the clock says.  Today many lessons were learned. To name a few: I don’t like running marathons as “training runs.”  It just doesn’t work for me mentally. There is a reason I […]
