My Journey to the Marathon – Running Update – Running a Half Marathon

It’s been a hot minute since I have shared a running update and I know many of you are curious as to what the heck I’ve been up to these past few months! So, here goes…

The big question. Am I still running?

YES!

But…. not on the same level I was at this time last year. I still love it just as much, actually more now that I think about it but because of the heavy load between school, work, my Etsy, blogging, life in general, I decided to take a step back and instead of devoting 2 hours of my day to run I stick to 3-4 miles on the treadmill (frigid temps here in NY, brrr) 3-4 times a week. The other days I lift weights, yoga, stretching or light cardio.

But what about training for the Marathon?

That goal is still in my mind but Covid put a serious damper in it so for the time being any races I do will be “unofficial” and around my home. For instance, last summer to take the place of my NYC half marathon that was canceled due to Covid, I instead ran the 13.1 miles around where I live! Check out my race recap HERE! So, this coming Summer and Fall I plan to do the same thing! Once the warmer weather starts peeking in, end of March-April I will hit the roads again and can finally start upping my miles to prepare for the virtual races. Plus, school is almost over so once April arrives I am nearing the end. Thankfully!

There are a few trails near where I live that are flat and perfect for running a race!

But you better bet that once Covid clears and races upon up I am towing my butt to the line and will FINALLY be able to run my race smack dab in the middle of NYC!

Once I start training for my virtual ones this summer I will give you guys another update on here! But if you want to stay up to date on my day to day life then you can follow my public instagram here. I share lots of food recipes, food reviews, Etsy products, running update and other fun posts on this page. 🙂 A mix of everything I enjoy!

I hope you all have a great day! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
