A (few) Bump(s) in the Road

The past 3 weeks have been a whirlwind of change and chaos in the GrandElam household. On January 17th, I started a new job with Zagster, a bike sharing company based out of Cambridge. It's been absolutely amazing, and I'm so glad I took the leap and changed careers. My whole first two weeks were... Continue Reading →

Colleen’s 2016 Year in Review

I know I'm a little late to the game here since it's already 2017, but hey, better late than never, right? 2016 was a whirlwind of a year for me both athletically and professionally. I ended my career as a nanny and decided to branch out into a new field I had no experience in,... Continue Reading →

Probably Jinxing Myself

I know I've been off the blogosphere recently, and it's taken me a while to figure out why. Honestly, the past 2 months or so of running have been going... really, really well. Like so well that I've been nervous to write about it in fear that I'll jinx it. But enough is enough - it's been too long since... Continue Reading →

#WOahMAN

Let me just start by saying I don't think I've ever been so sore in my life. In the past year I've done 50 burpees, and they were all last Friday. In the past year I've probably completed 2 full tours, and they were both in the past month. WOahMAN was probably not the best idea, but I went for it... Continue Reading →

B.A.A. Half Marathon 2016

I hadn't planned on running the B.A.A Half Marathon this year, but a few days before a spot opened up so I decided to go for it and test my half marathon legs.  I've been training for the Cambridge Half Marathon coming up in November so I thought if I can run a tougher course a month...

Colorado 2016

The past few weeks have just been me getting back into it after some toenail issues.  After my last blog post in August, I realized my toenail was bothering me again.  Instead of waiting until it got really bad, I went right back to the podiatrist and asked her to just permanently remove that portion...

Colleen’s Update

Hey guys, I do still exist! And I still run! Life has been a bit crazy - I started a new job and spent some good time with my favorite physical therapist for a few different injuries. Thankfully, I'm feeling more settled and less injured now, and ready to start training again. We're also starting... Continue Reading →

Maine Huts & Trails

It's been a while since I've blogged, but to be fair it's been a while since I've run! My shin set me back in my goal to run 1,000 miles this year, but I'm finally back on track after spending some time focusing on strengthening. After a few weeks of not running, I decided the smartest... Continue Reading →
