On the Ground at the Boston Marathon

In this podcast episode we recap the 125th Boston Marathon. Feel the energy from the crowds and hear from runners at the MTA Meet up. Coach Angie takes you along the course and shares interesting facts about the world’s most prestigious marathon.

The date of the 2021 Boston Marathon was changed from Patriot’s Day in April to October 11th– a full 910 days after the last Boston Marathon in 2019. It took place the day after the Chicago Marathon (a number of runners did a double requiring logistical and physical endurance).

Race Recap: My 50 Mile Strugglefest

I didn’t really plan on running a 50 miler this fall but when the MCM turned into a virtual race I knew that I needed to see if I could find a new challenge, and preferably something that was an in-person race.

I looked around on Ultrasignup.com and found the Pine Creek Challenge which takes place in Northern PA. They offered several distances including a 100 miler, a 100k, 50 miler, and marathon. The 50 miler sounded like a good challenge considering the race was just 7 weeks away.

Fortunately I’d kept a strong running base over the summer and was able to gradually increase my mileage before a good taper. I got up to a 70 mile week and thankfully stayed healthy. My sister Autum signed up for the marathon so we decided it would be a fun race/sisters weekend. Continue Reading →

As you can imagine, all big marathons in Estonia have been cancelled (well, you can still run them virtually), so I wasn’t able to run my planned Tallinn Marathon.

Two weeks before the previously scheduled run I was double checking the marathon calendar and to my surprise, I found a small marathon still happening!

Not virtually, but physically!

Preparing for My First Virtual Marathon

Even though I’ve completed 63 marathons I’d never done a virtual marathon before (and really had no desire to try one). But when the Pittsburgh Marathon was cancelled and offered the virtual option I decided to go for it (and my sister did too). It seemed like a good opportunity to get outside my comfort zone. Here’s what we did to prepare: Continue Reading →
