I’m (Finally) Back!

Where do I begin?  Happy New Year?!  My apologies for the delayed return.  I had planned to get back to blogging earlier, but as usual there were some unexpected twists.

Our late fall/early winter in New York was absolutely wonderful.  The weather cooperated for the most part and our family had great adventures in the city; a big change from our very rural life in the off season.

Our 3 year old, Mary, figured out how to get up off of the ice on her own and that was a huge game changer.  While I taught lessons every day at the ice rink in Central Park, she was able to skate around and join classes with us.  She decided that she was going to be both a figure skater and a hockey player!


Helping mom string a hockey net for class.

Lucy, our now 16 month old, even got in on the fun and tried marching around in skates that were much too big for her.  She only wants to do what big sister does and I can’t blame her.

Where Did I Disappear To?

I had big plans to get back to blogging and running adventures in the New Year, but I kept seeing information about a very intriguing certification course for running coaches.  I decided to skip the blogging (and basically anything else) for the next few weeks to pursue a new coaching certification.

Revo2lution Running is a 4 week training course that delves deeply into the science of running.  While I have my RRCA certification along with my ACE Health Coaching Certification, I am always looking to learn more about running and health and wellness.

What I loved about this course was that it combined these two areas of interest on a deeper level that I have been looking for.  Understanding more of the science behind running as well as the differences in training for men and women was exactly what I wanted.  By passing this test, I also received certification to teach treadmill classes in facilities.  I’m really looking forward to starting these classes up soon.


As a coach, I am always interested in broadening my knowledge of running and coaching.  I enjoy listening to other coaches and experts and bringing these new tools to runners who choose to work with me.  I’m looking forward to sharing some of the information I have learned and posting more in the next few weeks.

What are you goals for 2019?

  1. Yay! You’re back!!! And congratulations on the achievement. That’s awesome! Your girls are just so adorable. And how is Mary possibly 3 already?

    Reached one goal already – even though it wasn’t a sanctioned, official race, I ran a half on Super Bowl Sunday. I have a goal of 800 running miles for the year. I know I could probably squeeze in more, hopefully with another half in the fall (official this time), but I also know I need to plan for off weeks.

    Looking forward to “seeing” you more around the blogging world. 🙂

    • Thank you! I’ve been enjoying your posts and thoughts lately.

      I can’t believe Mary is 3 either. She has become such a big girl, so quickly!

      Congrats on the half. Official or not, that is a pretty big deal. A great way to start Super Bowl Sunday!

  2. Welcome back! Congratulations on your coaching certification. I’m trying to finish in the top 3 in my AG at one of the half marathons I’m running this year! I think if it’s going to happen, it will be at the race in Delaware in May but it’s going to be tough so we’ll see.

  3. Welcome back! I’m just now getting caught up reading blog posts and happy to see you writing again. My big goal in 2019 is to run a 3:50 marathon (3:45 if I can) – which, at my ADVANCED age, would qualify me for Boston. I’m actually excited about turning 45 this year because it will mean a whole new age group to compete in. I also have a vague goal of eventually being good enough to place in the top 3 of my AG in a NYRR race. 🙂

    • That is so exciting! I love that as runners, we can look forward to new age groups and what that means. Aging can get better! I am so happy for you and all of your progress. You are doing amazing things and I am really enjoying reading about them.
