I'm an aspiring elite runner from the DC/Northern VA area. I love road racing and am currently training for a half marathon in April. I write about attempting to balance a career with running and enjoying the process of training and improving!

  1. I like how your workout on Wednesday was broken up alternating with track/hill trail- I feel like that would be a fun challenge and keep it interesting!

  2. Congrats on the race! Also, just curious – do you do any cross training (pool running, etc.) or are you consistently a 7 days/week runner?

  3. Thanks!
    If I have a little nagging pain or something, I’ll jump in the pool but otherwise, I usually run 7 days. Wish I had time to add in some pool running on top of running.
