    NYC 10K 2016 (Race Recap)

    The NYC 10K is one of the few races that my running team always does together since it’s a fun, flat and quick course. This is the race you sign up for to get your PR…. Not that I PR’ed or anything yesterday. NYC 10K for breakfast this morning. It was a beautiful day to run by the water! A photo posted by GeekFitLifestyle (@geekfitlifestyle) on Oct 23, 2016 at 10:19am PDT I arrived at the race about 13 minutes after everyone started, but it’s cool I wasn’t the last one. I’ve taken a bit of a break since the Brooklyn half in May since that was a big month…

    My First Tri: Bassman Triathlon Sprint 2016 (Race Recap + Video)

    This past Sunday I participated in the Bassman Triathlon sprint in Tuckerton, New Jersey. It was my very first triathlon and my overall experience was great. I’m still not sure what possessed me to want to do a triathlon, but if I can, why not? The day before I ran the AirBnB Brooklyn Half Marathon, so I took it easy because I knew I had the tri the next day.

    Novo Nordisk New Jersey Marathon 2016 (Race Recap)

    Many people make running a marathon one of their goals in life, and last November I was able to check that off my list. I ran the New York City Marathon and had an awesome experience that I will never forget. Upon completion of my first marathon, like everyone said I would – I said I wouldn’t ever do another one. Boy was I wrong. Three weeks later I signed up for another 5 months of hell (aka training). I registered for the Novo Nordisk New Jersey Marathon, really for the fact that it was a totally different course (flat & PR friendly) that I could potentially crush my first…

    United Airlines NYC Half 2016 (Race Recap)

    My running season has officially started! This past Sunday I completed my first United Airlines NYC Half Marathon so here’s my race recap! In the days leading up to the event I honestly wasn’t looking forward to it. The forecast had showed snow and low twenties, which isn’t my cup of tea when it comes to running. Call it what you want, but I am not a fan of running in the cold, rain, or snow. Okay, maybe I could tolerate some rain if it was warm….. But wet socks are the worst! Anyhow, I had it set in my mind that I wasn’t doing the race until the night…
