Rave Runs of 2014

December 18, 2014

There are some runs we forget nearly the moment they are finished, like the weekday run on the route we’ve covered a hundred times, or the uneventful long run that was just average. But there are other runs that become etched in our brains for eternity – runs we will never forget. Runs that will keep us going and searching for years to come, to capture that feeling and essence once again.

Several times throughout the year, I’m fortunate to have my two passions collide: running and traveling. Running in new and different cities may be one of my favorite things to do. By the end of this month, I will have logged 1,300 miles of running in 2014. These were the miles that stood out the most. These were the runs that were so meaningful that no words can really describe them. These were my rave runs of 2014.

This month, I’m most looking forward to running with my parents and good friends from Florida during the holidays! Often times it’s not the places you run, but the people you run with.

I can’t wait to run with Mom and Dad this month!

Running Lost

December 11, 2014

I sat in the back seat of a yellow cab, headed from Union Station to my hotel in downtown Chicago. I gazed out the window as we drove down the same streets I ran during the Chicago Marathon just 2 months ago. I closed my eyes and smiled inside. That was a special day. I… Read more»
