Training With Valor

Where do I begin? I guess I could start by saying it’s been a busy month.  Hold on, THAT might be a bit of an understatement… Things go back to November when I mentioned how I had just completed a run focus training plan with my goal 5k race.  Naturally, after that race, my thoughts […]

Bondi Band’s Calf Sleeves

It’s no secret that I love wearing compression socks.  I have countless pairs and I wear them all of the time.  I can’t speak for others, but I truly believe they help my legs recover from running better than they would if I didn’t wear them. Until recently, one piece of compression gear that I had […]

Race Recap: Pie and Glove 5k

Happy Thanksgiving! This morning I kept with my Thanksgiving tradition and ran the local Pie & Glove 5k. Along with the race being a tradition, it was also my goal race.  Who makes the Thanksgiving Day 5k a goal race?! My reasoning goes back to late summer when my friend Ericka and I were planning […]

A HUGE Surprise

So this exciting news comes a little late… My husband, Brendan told me to keep the weekend of my birthday (October 27th) open.  He had made us plans. In my mind, this equaled getting up earlier than I wanted to on a Saturday in order to get in my 8+mile speed workout before we left […]

Running For Kenya with Janji

IMG_20130917_100328

This weekend I went for a nice long trail run.  It’s amazing the difference in how my legs feel when running on softer ground versus the road.  My legs were stronger and happier than they usually are when I spend miles pounding the pavement on the roads around town.  I should run more trails… I […]

Janji’s Running Headband

With the weather here in Upstate, NY feeling more and more like Fall, it’s time to start thinking about warmer running gear.  Luckily, we don’t need winter running hats just yet.  However, with some of the mornings around here starting out in the 30s and 40s, a running headband can take care of the job […]

Race Recap: Finger Lakes Triathlon

IMG_20130909_213114

When I started triathlon training in May, I had no idea where it would take me.  Four months later, I’ve just completed my third triathlon of the season (fourth if you include the Borg Warner Mini Triathlon). After Cayuga and Broome County, I didn’t feel my triathlon season was complete yet.  I had at least one […]

Race Recap: Time to Sperr

IMG_20130824_132011

The Time to Sperr race is one of my all time favorites.  Its local, there are a variety of distance options (3k, 5k, 10k), the course is relatively flat/fast, and most importantly its in honor of a true hero, NYS Trooper, Andrew J. Sperr.  Proceeds from the race go towards maintaining and improving the park […]

Race Recap: Broome County Triathlon

BroomeBike

 The Broome County Triathlon was originally scheduled for June of this year.  Unfortunately the week of the race, there were heavy rains and it was postponed due to flooding.  If this triathlon had taken place when it was supposed to, I would not have done it because I just wasn’t as fit as I wanted […]

Race Recap: The Cayuga Lake Triathlon

This past weekend I competed in the 11th annual Cayuga Lake Triathlon in Ithaca, New York. On race day, my alarm went off at 4:00 AM.  I showered, braided my hair (which, by the way, I believe is the easiest style for triathlons), got dressed in my racing gear, added more layers of clothes due […]
