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 →

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...

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 →

Vermont 100 Training Update

Unfortunately I have been pretty quiet here over the last couple of weeks. After Bear Mountain and Seven Sisters I was pretty toast, and a busy work and travel schedule have kept me pretty tired. Thankfully I have not had to stop training, and now I finally have a bit of time to give a... Continue Reading →

May Update for Colleen

After Bear Mountain, I took a few days off of running, but hopped right back onto that train and went for an easy 2 miler on the treadmill the Tuesday after the race. I rested Wednesday because my legs were still feeling tired even after only 2 easy miles, and I was back out there... Continue Reading →

Bear Mountain 50k Training Update

I fell off the blogging bandwagon again! But hey, life gets messy and hard and busy sometimes - we all get it. The past few weeks have been going very well! I am feeling strong and ready to take on Bear Mountain. I finally brought myself to look at the race elevation profile and other... Continue Reading →
