And just like that, we’re in February! Welcome to a new month! If you had a tough January like I had, you’re extremely glad to be moving forward. I’m so happy to be able to reset and create some new wellness goals for February! Keep reading to learn more!
Virtual races – you either love them or hate them! Virtual races have been around for years and provide a great way to encourage you to get out the door and earn some great swag. Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, participating in virtual races has evolved from a nice-to-have option to a necessity since in-person races are still prohibited in most cities.
Since virtual races are clearly here to stay, I thought for my latest Running 101 post, I would share tips on how to have your most successful virtual race! Just because you’re not running with hundreds or thousands of other runners, that doesn’t mean you can’t still have a great experience!

It’s hard to believe it but it’s finally time for my first big race of 2019 – the Rock ‘n Roll Nashville Half Marathon! This will be the first half marathon I’ve completed since the Love Run in March 2018. I had a rough last half of 2018 due to plantar fasciitis, and after months of rest and physical therapy, I’ve been building my mileage and strength since this winter to get back to my love, long distance running. This race will hopefully confirm that I’m “back”! I’m happy to share my goals for this race!
I hope you’re doing well! I know it’s been pretty quiet on my side lately, but that doesn’t mean that there hasn’t been anything going on! I’ve been very busy training for the Rock ‘N Roll Nashville Half Marathon, which is now only a few short weeks away!
I thought now would be a good time to check in and share how things have been going with my training. I’m entering Week 6 of my plan from Coach Laura, and I’m really optimistic about how things will go in Nashville!
