Seven Sisters Race Recap 2017

Let me start by saying that for once, Matt adequately prepared me for a race for the first time ever. Most of the time we go for a run or a race and he tells me "oh it's super easy" or "after the first half it's all downhill" and inevitably it's the hardest race I've ever... Continue Reading →

Portland 2017

Sorry I haven't posted in a while, life has been super boring and uneventful. LOLJK! So much has happened in even just April, I don't even know where to start. Why don't I start with the least exciting thing, which is that my cysts are gone and I'm cleared to run! (The fact that this... Continue Reading →

Now What?

    I sat down with the intention of writing a race recap for the Hyannis Marathon, and I just can't bring myself to do it. To sum it up, it went better than I had ever imagined it could. I was shooting for sub-4, and surpassed that goal by running a 3:50:24. I felt... Continue Reading →

T-minus 7 Weeks!

After a week and half of resting post ruptured-ovarian cyst, I had a nice, full week of training last week. I ended up being slightly shy of my goal for the week, but made the decision that going from 9 miles in a week to 50 the next might be a bit much. I started out... Continue Reading →

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 →

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 →

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...
