You know what I don't like about the "big race" experience? The never-ending chain of emails from photo vendors teasing you with expensive photos of y...

Running on Fumes

What made me decide to dive head first into the world of running? Besides, of course, the constant and burning desire, which only the parents of young children can truly understand, to get out of the freaking house and wallow in aloneness?

What Those Obnoxious Running Stickers Say About You

I don't have a running sticker on my vehicle. For me, it minimizes my accomplishments. My races were rich, vibrant, life-changing experiences that cannot be reflected in a cold, numeric, one-size-fits-all decal. Or maybe it's just my reticent personality.

I forgot what chemotherapy does to the body other than killing cancer cells.The memories, along with the side effects, have returned. The changes to my digestive system and my thinning hair have spoken loudly that "the cancer's back."

Training for my first half marathon has been exciting and challenging. Because I hadn't run much more than four miles leading up to my training, adding miles also starting taking a toll on my body. Muscles began hurting that never did before.

Most days are made up of way too many not-my-finest-moments. Every morning, I promise myself I will try to be a better mother to the boys. It is hard to focus on the moments beyond the mistakes.

My ego bruise at my slowness encroaching on my annual marathon record is a powerful signal, not to stop, but instead to have a more modest goal. Accordingly, in four weeks I will run my first half-marathon across the Golden Gate Bridge and back.

I Completed My First Half Marathon! Does That Mean I Am A Runner?

During the race all I could think was, "Why would anybody do this to themselves? Why would I pay to do this? This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever done and I will never do it again!" As soon as I saw that finish line I was thinking to myself, "Oh, this wasn't really that bad."

The Oddity of the Long Distance Runner

Jason Saltmarsh | Posted 10.14.2014 | Healthy Living
Jason Saltmarsh

Long distance runners are a bizarre group of people to those who find comfort in stillness, pleasure in overindulgence, and reassurance in conformity. I know this because I was not always a runner. There was a time that I scoffed at runners and the strange counterculture of running. But, now I know better.

Strides are an easy and effective way to increase your speed. By adding strides to your workout two or three times a week, you can begin to see some big changes in turnover (foot speed) and performance.

What It's Like To Run While Female

The guy was very fit, not struggling with the slow 11-minute pace the way I was. He stayed beside me or a few steps back. At the corner I sped up and made a right around him. For a little while I though he'd stopped following me. But he had not.

What I Learned About Friendship By Running My First Half Marathon

Through several miles of my race, I was preoccupied with whether or not my pace was fast enough to keep me from being swept from the course. It hit me then that I don't want to go through life with people who keep their heads down and press miserably toward their goal. May I choose partners in this race who stop for a selfie with Abe Lincoln or stop to enjoy the sunset when I'm busy rushing my kids out of the playground before dark.

I won't win these races. I will finish behind thousands of other men and women. And that's okay. If I can finish an entire thin-crust pizza, I can finish a race. I am a chubby runner, and I get to keep running for as long as I hate doing it.

Going The Distance

I had fantasies of finishing my first half-marathon in less than two hours and being greeted by Paul down on one knee, but I wasn't disappointed at my 2:06 time and the proud grin on my boyfriend's (still-not-fiance's) face as I finished, because I was having a heck of a lot of fun.

Run at the Speed of Fun

I eased off the pace. Got my breathing back under control. And the epiphany struck: I don't need to run at any particular pace or register any particular time. All I need to do is run at the speed of fun.

Even as we are reduced to bib numbers and the singlet of our running club, and even as each race is an individual race with our own mind and body, there is something very social that happens once we get spread out across the course.

It's hard to believe that in a matter of a few months I'll be running over 13 miles. In fact, it's the first time in a long time that I've donned athletic apparel more than two days in a row.
