What time is it? Is it 3 or 4AM? Is my phone updated with the time change? I can't miss my ferry. Go back to sleep, Lindsay. You don't have to be up for two more hours, rest while you can. 5:30AM, ok finally time to wake up. Shoot my phone didn't charge, how am … Continue reading Inner Thoughts and Conversations from the 2018 NYC Marathon
Eighteen weeks. In exactly one hundred and twenty five days I will be boarding a ferry to Staten Island to compete in the New York City Marathon.

At the start of my month off (and admittedly still now), I … Continue reading An Attitude of Gratitude

I don't need yoga, this is not for me. Yet here I find myself committing to it 3+ times per week...and I can't get enough.
Let's chat about 2016 for a hot second. 2016 was quite a year for me. I ran my first marathon, and set PR's in the 5K, 10 Mile, and Half-Marathon.

This weekend I ran the Cannonball Half Marathon as a training run. Let me tell you it was pretty freaking awesome.
