Snowpocalypse Atlanta 2014

Snowpocalypse Atlanta 2014

Regularly scheduled writings about running & fitness (or triathlon) is interrupted to write about Snowpocalypse Atlanta 2014. Snowmageddon. Snowjam. Whatever you want to call it. Or a shake of the head and sniggering laugh, if you are from the North of the US of A (or Europe or other naturally cold regions). We have had so many below freezing days in HOTlanta this winter that it became a common joke to say that if the temps were this cold, it…

BRFs and Mind over Body

BRFs and Mind over Body

One of the most amazing things about BRFs (Best Running Friends) are that they are just like best friends – you can pick up your pace and mile just where you left it the last time. This weekend, Dawn, a BRF who moved away to Boston, came down to visit and run with us! She was so awesome in coming out to meet me early for a few solitary miles and then to hang on for a total of 12,…

Good Form Running Analysis

Good Form Running Analysis

Running (or walking) is such a natural thing that we don’t think twice about it. It is a basic motor skill development and a milestone when a baby begins to walk/run.

Winter Break Training Recap: Dec 21 – Jan 4

Winter Break Training Recap: Dec 21 – Jan 4

I don’t usually write a weekly training plan or recap (although I think it is a great idea to be accountable in public), but these past week of winter holidays has been so blissful that I’m compelled to record and brag about it. And perhaps continue this trend so you can get a glimpse into what workouts with a person who wants to do everything and probably has no clear goal looks like. I’m sure there are quite a few…

Resolution Run 5k 2014

Resolution Run 5k 2014

January 1st. The time for resolutions. And the mandatory “Resolution Run”. This race has almost become a tradition for me for the past 4 years (I missed it last year and well … my racing year did not go well, so why jinx myself!). We’ve always gone as a family with my minions doing the kids races, but this year Daddy didn’t wake up even when I poked him quite a few times, so I guiltily went by myself. Apart from…
