Cinnamon Rushes: Introduction

Hurry Up and WaitI know you’re all busy people.  As a mother of two toddlers believe me I can relate! I also know that not all of us have the luxury of routine or even time at home. That’s why I’ve enlisted my sister Cinnamon to share her experiences as a competitive runner with an active social life, interest in several hobbies and–here’s the big one–a career freelancing in New York’s film and TV industry.

This girl commutes on the run, runs at midnight, runs after 18 hour days, runs hungover after wrap parties among other nutty things. Not to toot her own horn (and my own since I coached her, of course!) but in a matter of months Cinnamon went from being a relatively nonathletic career-focused young woman to running her debut marathon in 4:11 all while navigating this hectic lifestyle.

Ginger with post

Cinnamon will be posting a weekly training log as well as a feature, Ginger Rushes. Like Diary of an Injured Runner, Cinnamon Rushes will be the chronicles of a runner lady’s life. But instead of an injured mom of two, Cinnamon will be writing about her exeperiences as a single 30-something runner navigating New York City, a hectic and stressful career and everything else life has to offer. Follow along as she tries to string along enough quality training to attempt another marathon and p.r. in all distances along the way!

Salty Running boss and mother of 3 little ones with PRs of 3:10:15 (26.2), 1:25:59 (13.1) and 18:15 (5k). I love to write about running culture, mental training, and fitting in a serious running habit with the rest of a busy life.
