15 Michigan Miles

At this point in my training, most of my long runs will be my longest distance run.  Prior to this week, my longest run had been my half marathon in March.  Facing 15 miles this week was scary even when I first glanced at the schedule months ago.  Add in my recent long run failures, […]

One Sweaty Fundraiser!

This past week, Harry’s Heroes held a fundraiser at Orange Theory Fitness in Marlboro, New Jersey.  One of our founding members, Liz, works out there and just loves the gym, so it was fitting to try and get their support.  What started with her simply asking if they would be interested in helping us out, […]

Taking a Breath!

Guys I feel like I haven’t stopped in an entire month!!  Between getting ready for boards, 3 summer classes (with tons of papers, forgive me if I cite in APA format in this blog post), Harry’s medical/therapy/social calendar, training for a marathon…I’m beat!  I just want to sleep!  I feel like I’m only home to […]

Trying to Hang on to that Wave

Some times things happen when you’re least expecting them.  I’ve been so distracted lately with visitors, traveling, and preparing for the end of my semester/getting ready for preceptorship, graduation, and moving on to my BSN.  Monday morning was catch up from traveling because I worked on Sunday, but Harry and I still had to go […]

Hope, Help, and Healing

Yesterday, Harry and I had our weekly visit with our amazing chiropractor, Dr. Tyler Richards.  We always have the nicest conversations, and I always feel physically and mentally better when I leave.  I would highly recommend him, especially for pediatric patients.  He’s got a great bedside manner.  We talked about a lot of things that […]

11 Miles!!!

I got past 10 miles!!  Wahoo!!!! Let me just say that December and January were basically a wash for me.  Between the holidays and awful weather, I barely got outside to run.  Weather that I cannot run in is single digits or ice, and we had a lot of that.  At the end of January […]

Big Wheels Keep on Turnin’

Are you singing Proud Mary yet? Yes? Good. Sometimes life smacks you in a way that makes you take a huge step back and say Whoa.  Little trickles of things can suddenly start an avalanche so quickly. When I first started my journey in muscle disease (because let’s face it, Harry has his journey but I […]

I conquered the dreadmill!

Well, I certainly didn’t conquer it, but I did successfully use it to work out.  I’ve run on treadmills before but at around 30 minutes or so I can’t go on, no matter how slow I’ve been going.  My friends who do 8, 10, or more miles on the treadmill make me want to bow […]
