Half Marathon Thoughts + Workouts From Week

8 miles

  There’s a slight ping in my heart, every so often lately, as the Long Island marathon weekend approaches. I ran the 10K portion last year but the thought of the half marathon still touches my heart, even though I haven’t run 13 miles in gosh, almost two years. I’ve run the Long Island half […]

Before getting to my re-evaluating of my workout routine, I need to tell you that my Islanders clinched a playoff spot Saturday night! It was a great game to attend.
