About & PR’s

I am a 2:47:09 marathoner with a goal to qualify for the 2016 U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials. I’ve made a promise to myself to give it my all, accept the good and hard times, appreciate all those who support me, and enjoy every moment along the way.  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Ok, so I found your blog because somehow you found my blog;-) I am instantly hooked on anyone speedy, with three small kids (like myself), none of which are in school full time, making life a big juggling act and how the heck you get so fast! I’m looking forward to reading, and learning, about your training and progression! I seem to be stuck on the sneaker thing lately, and would LOVE to know what your favorites are to train in and race the marathon distance in!? Happy running!!!

    • I love your blog! Mom Running blogs are my absolute favorite. The whole life juggling thing is rough but fun so I like to commiserate :) My feet are very narrow so I lean towards Nike shoes (Pegasus) but I also love my Newtons for easy/medium distance runs. As far as racing, I race almost every distance in the Nike Streak 3’s. They are very light and responsive. Basically you have to try on every shoe in the market before you find one that works!

  2. Thanks for the follow – and it’s always great to get introduced to new blogs. I hadn’t seen yours before. Interestingly enough, my former training partner (she’s won the woman’s race at the Mount Desert Marathon twice, among others) just suffered a calf tear last weekend. I haven’t spoken to her yet, but it sounds like it was a case of not warming up enough before a hard 5 km race. Hope yours heals quickly. Cheers.

  3. Hey Kris! I really love reading your blog and appreciate all your insights. I just wanted to let you know I nominated you for the Pink Tree, or One Lovely Blog award! Details are on my page :) You are one awesome lady!

  4. So you went from a 3:16 one year to a sub 3 hour the following, I like it! I started up again (after a 16 year break and 3 babies) and ran 3:13 after 12 months running. I want sub 3 come Jan 2013 and wasn’t sure if that was enough time? How have you progressed so quickly? I would love to pick your brain, so many questions! I will have to troll through your blog to find out more. VERY excited to have ‘found you’ on here :)

  5. Hi Kris,
    I was nominated for a blogger award and I have to nominate 15 other bloggers.

    I’m sure you’ve received this already, but your blog has impacted my running/healthy lifestyle.

    Check out the post: http://thechangeofpace.wordpress.com/2012/07/01/versatileblogger/

    There are some rules if you want to participate:

    (1) thank the blogger who nominated you (2) include the award image in your post, (3) copy the award image to your site, (4) give seven random facts about yourself, (5) nominate 15 other bloggers for the award, and (6) let those bloggers know they’ve been nominated.

    Thanks, and keep up the inspiring running and writing!
    – Abby

  6. Hello Kris,
    Just a quick message to ask if you would be interested in a ‘mutual’ following on twitter. I am currently following you now and am awaiting for your follow-back. (#FYI I do RT’s ‘anytime’ for all #Triathletes #Cyclists #UltraRunners & #Marathoners who follow me on Twitter and have something important they want mentioned…)

    All the very best for the rest of 2012 and beyond Kris . Look forward to hearing from you soon…

  7. I don’t know you, but I can tell you are great on so many levels. It’s the little things in life that get me going and your blog comment made my day. In fact, I feel even more confident about NYC than I did 24 hours ago :) Love finding kindred souls in running. Looks like you are well on your way to a 2:42. Your improvements over the years have been phenomenal. I am looking forward to following your journey…the good and the not so good ;-) I wish you all the best Kris!

  8. Hey Kris! I am so glad you found my blog and followed! I am no where near your stage in OTQ training, but I am hoping to be there soon! Your stories and experiences will definitely help! I also love that you are a mom, as I hopefully will be soon, too :)

    PS You are so lucky to be apart of the U.S. Marathon Trials Project! Jelaous ;)
