Jolene

My running game has been strong this past week and I’ve run almost every day <3 I had to take a little over 3 weeks off and I was surprised at how quickly my paces bounced back. It is H.O.T.T. hott here in Florida and I definitely haven’t adjusted to running in it. Per usual, I’ve been loading up on Nuun¬†and that has definitely helped. Todd was out of town last Sunday evening to late Wednesday night, so I had to get creative to fit my runs in. Getting up at 4AM to run, shower, get ready, get Kara ready, […]

Hello hello! Hope everyone had a great weekend! Sorry for the glitch with the blog this morning… I hit publish before I was done! That’s what happens when I blog before coffee ūüėČ Here are some randoms from my life last week… I had the pleasure of meeting up with Jolene for lunch last week at Panera. We caught up on life and ate some delicious salads. We used the kiosk to order and I loved it. I can place a picky order without sounding¬†high maintenance, haha. I always add whatever veggies are free and switch up the dressing (on […]

Miss me? I’m sure you didn’t even notice with social media flooded¬†with all things Boston Marathon (rightfully so). I had a work trip to Montreal and I just didn’t have time. But I’m back! Where to begin? How about running? This is HeatherRunsFast ūüėČ I had some great runs the past two weeks. Got in my favorite run… A run with Jolene that is <3 Our miles always fly by. Got in a few good treadmill runs as well. Had another good outside run on Easter. Came home and Kara stole my water bottle. Per usual. I was expecting a […]

Morning Kara

Disney Marathon Weekend Part 1!!! We left off with us JUST making it to our corrals… Literally 5 minutes later, Mickey counted us down, the fireworks went off and the race was under way. If you recall, the weather was cold for this FL girl (35 degrees) but the 15mph wind is what really sucked. Made the “feels like” temp in the 20’s! The wind scared Jolene and I so much. After the Shamrock Marathon (my PR- 3:13, which would have been under 3:10 without the wind) and¬†Space Coast a few years ago¬†(which, ironically is where I met Jolene for […]

Post Disney Celebration

Disney Marathon Weekend was just that… Saturday to Sunday. Wham Bam thank you ma’am! I picked Jolene up around 10:30 after we both got to spend time with our families before we left for the short weekend. We made the hour and 15 min drive to the ESPN Wide World of Sports in the cold, windy, rain to pick up our bibs. I had shirts made for us with our “mantras” for the race and instagram handles on the back. I think they came out pretty cute We wore them Saturday and Sunday after the race, along with our Boston […]

I had THE BEST marathon pace run on Wednesday. Thanks to summer like temps, getting super sick and work, I had to put off the¬†pace run ¬†I had planned for last Sunday until sometime this week. Thankfully, Jolene was able to help me out! She met me at my house and dropped of water bottles on the way. The temp was cooler than it had been all week (low of 60- woot woot!) but the humidity was still 85%, so I knew I needed water. We left bottles and gel on the back of her car, too. Jolene would run […]

Happy Monday!!! Here’s a rundown of my pretty great week/end… On Wednesday I had a hard workout on the plan and I killed it. I love comparing this training cycle to the last (which wasn’t that long ago) because the paces are getting faster On Friday I had another great run with Jolene. We never go out with a pace in mind, we just run and chat and see where we’re at <-a little rhyme for your Monday ūüėČ Friday afternoon we decided to have dessert first and met up for an ice cream date! Kara even got a goodbye […]
