Tried It Tuesday: Mizuno Wave Rider 20

November 22, 2016 at 6:07 am

I have a long history with Mizuno Wave Riders. They recently launched version 20. I started wearing them somewhere around version 6, I think. I’ve loved them except the 13. [They should have skipped 13 – just saying!] Wave Riders have been steadily in my rotation for the last decade or more. I wore my 18s to death and recently got a pair of 19s,…

November 7, 2016 at 5:52 am

If you read my Friday Five last week, you know that this NY Marathon was a bit ill fated.

This is my 17th New York Marathon since 1996 and the 20th anniversary of my first running in 1996. It’s been a mixed…

Ladies, have you ever stashed money, a credit card or energy gel in your sports bra on a hot summer day? Strapped for pockets, my friends and I always chatted about where we stash our GU, cash or keys. We got some awesome chafe marks from these excursions, too. Rhys always wanted to make a great sports bra with pockets. We talked about this more…

October 30, 2016 at 8:03 am

Next Sunday, I’ll toe the line at my 17th running of the New York Marathon. If you’re wondering how I’ve gotten in so many times, you can read this post. Since 2006, I’ve had to travel in for my race each of the 7 times I’ve run since. Packing everything I need is super important. You’d think you could buy anything you need in NYC…
