Two whole weeks after the fact, and I finally feel like I have settled down enough to begin wrapping up this whole marathon thing with a final blog post. Hobbling out of my apartment the day after the race, having woken up early due to the aching pains radi...

This is it!
Here it is, the night before the race, and I hardly even have time to post an update! Hopefully people got my email today and know that they can track me during the race by using the BAA Boston Marathon Mobile App , if you enter my bib number 30188. You can...

Long Run, February 7th: Snow on snow on snow

Long Run, January 31st: That Time of January
I don't often find myself honestly dreading a long run, even though they can be a bit daunting at times; usually I find myself ready for the big push. But when I looked out my window at 6:45 a.m. on Saturday, I watched the branches on the sturdy maple tree ...
