I Had Oatmeal Not Frosted Mini Wheats

This morning I made a usual visit to the Whole Foods in Jericho for their oatmeal, almond slices, brown sugar and cinnamon. The most boring Sunday brunch ever. But I had to fuel up. I had to put all my focus on one thing. To get through my 16 mile training run today. There is…

There I Go Again… Last Minute CK

My life has been a little topsy turvy the past few months. The one thing I continue to focus in on is July 27th Ironman Lake Placid. Nothing will stop me from toeing that line. But I toyed with the idea of Quassy. Considered one of the most challenging 70.3 courses out there, I wanted…

WHAT??? 6 Day Running Race???

Yep, that’s exactly the typical reaction I get when I tell people my husband Michael is running the 17th Annual Sri Chinmoy Six Day Race. The next question is..well how many miles will he put in? While that is questionable, the goal is to put in at least two, 26.2 marathons a day which would…
