2017 Road to Berlin – Week 10

There are only five weeks left until I start tapering. Where did the time go??? At this point, as every year, I start to doubt my training. I don't know why, I just do. What do I do about it? I keep going. Monday - another hot one! Do I sound like a broken record yet?...

Monday morning. This is how it started...... As Florida weather often does, it stopped raining by early afternoon only to pour down again exactly as I'm leaving work. So, long story short, I ended up on the treadmill for 4.5 miles. With a close eye on the weather...

Didn't I just brag about how my Saturday and Monday runs have been the best ones? Well, I'm taking that back now. While last Saturday wasn't all that bad (aside from running in wet clothes and getting nasty blisters), Monday's 6 miles felt terrible. Miles four, five,...

2017 Road to Berlin – Week 6

I didn't plan to take Monday off, but we had tickets to see Paul McCartney in concert in Tampa, so guess what? No running for me! To my own surprise I wasn't dead tired on Tuesday, and due to much lower humidity and a few degrees less my five mile run on Tuesday went...

About Alex

Wife, runner, German native, beach bum, foodie, and wine lover. If you’re looking for info on how to run your next PR you’ve come to the wrong place. I’m not an expert on running or nutrition, and I won’t tell you what else you should or shouldn’t do. I'm fairly creative but notorious for starting fifty different projects and finishing (n)one. My blog is simply a collection of my personal experience in the crazy world of - running! Along the way I’ll also share what other random projects I’m currently into.

Some of the leaves are turning a rusty brown. Not because it is cold and fall is upon us, but because hurricane Irma was a bit too rough and damaged a lot of trees. Nevertheless, fall season is almost here and with that are pumpkins and Halloween and pretty soon after that it'll be Thanksgiving .... and Christmas. I'm not ready for it!!! ... See MoreSee Less

I'm slowly getting my groove back. Seems that so many of us have been consumed with hurricane preparations and post storm cleanup, not even to mention making it through an entire week of living without electricity, but now that that's behind us it's time to get back to business! 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️ ...
