Race Day thoughts

Since this was my fist major race, I really didn't know what I was getting into on the brisk, nay FREAKIN' COLD morning of November 3rd. I was a tad nervous to say the least. As the time got closer to the 8am start, the temperature didn't rise like I was hoping and I couldn't... Continue Reading →

Run a Half Marathon…Check!!

I just got home from running, and finishing the Monumental Half-Marathon! According to texts my friends received (and then sent me), I finished in 2 hours, 11 minutes and 51 seconds! This race was cold, kind of dreary, and crowded, but hey, I finished it! When this all started I wanted to run races as... Continue Reading →

It’s Here!

The half-marathon I have been training for is right around the corner, and I'm pretty excited about it! I'm also excited that I'm doing this as a Plant Powered runner! Speaking of Plant Powered, I got my 'No-Meat-Athlete' long sleeve shirt in the mail last week and have been proudly wearing it on the final... Continue Reading →

Taper Week + Fun Gigs!

Well, here we are. The week before my first half-marathon and I gotta say that I'm pretty excited about it! This week is the second of two taper weeks, meaning that the milage is less than previous weeks. It kind of feels weird only running a few miles instead of 7-10, but it all leads...

Monumental Half-Marathon Team RBD!!

The Monumental Marathon and Half Marathon is on November 3rd, 2012. As this is my first half-marathon, I'm thinking I may need some sort of support team, or at least suggestions of how to best navigate eating/drinking throughout the race. Anybody want to sign on to Team RBD?! Let me know! The course of this... Continue Reading →

The Fear of Failure

The Fear of Failure is upon us all the time. For some people, it is a tiny fear WAY back somewhere in the packed attic of their brain. For others, the fear of failure can be strong enough that it prevents them from even starting something. On the whole spectrum of not fearing any failure,... Continue Reading →

Wow and Whew!

The last week of running has been pretty amazing! Two Saturday's ago I participated in a 47K relay. I was one of four people running a 2.2 mile circuit. The four of us ran the 47K (which is a marathon) in 3:22:47, not bad! It was quite cold and I learned a lot about how... Continue Reading →

First Speed Bump

Well, I've had my first speed bump with my running this past week. Since I've been ranting about the ISO Musician Lockout (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3) , I haven't been writing about the running so much, so let me re-cap a couple of weeks here: Two weeks ago, I was supposed to do... Continue Reading →

4 Weeks Finished

I know, I know. I haven't been writing much...er, I mean, I haven't been writing AT ALL! So sue me. I've been in a fog recently. Yeah, I've been pretty lazy about keeping up on my running/vegetarianism blog, but what can I do. I'm writing NOW, so enjoy it. Despite not writing about it, I... Continue Reading →

The Challenge

I recently began reading the "No Meat Athlete Half Marathon Roadmap: The Vegetarian Guide to Conquering Your First 13.1" by Matt Frazier. Before the book gets into the training program the first Chapter is all about 'Making It Real: Goals and Commitments'. In this chapter, Matt asks you questions and you have to answer them....
