Vision Fitness Treadmill Review

Whether you love or hate running on a treadmill this is when they sometimes become a necessity. Michele from NYCRunningMama asked me to join her in sharing a treadmill review. If you are currently in the market for a treadmill you can find more excellent reviews HERE on Pinterest.

Since I live in New Hampshire, my treadmill and I have become best friends. I have trained for many marathons including two Boston Marathons (2013 and 2014). Training for Boston in the middle of the Polar Vortex last year meant that I got to do plenty of running on my treadmill or “dreadmill” as some people like to call it. I’ve run everything from an easy 3 mile run to a 20 mile+ run when the temperatures have dipped too low to step outside. I have to admit that I am not averse to running on a treadmill because it means I can pop on it for a run even if I can’t escape my house (moms of little kids you totally know what I mean!). My treadmill is also situated on our porch which has big windows looking out at our fields so even if you can’t get out for a run their is an illusion of being outside. The only drawback is that the porch is not heated so in the dead of winter I still have to layer up like I am going outside (at least the porch acts like a windbreak, hahaha!)

  • I have had some trouble with the treadmill memory holding data from workouts.
  • The cost is high but the treadmill has been very reliable!

If you are on the hunt for a new running partner treadmill I would definitely consider check out Vision Fitness treadmills.

An unexpected recap of the 2014 Boston Marathon.

Describe your running year in one word. 

This post was inspired by Amanda from Run to the Finish who asks, “If you could describe your year of running in one word what would that be?”

Her question sparked an unexpected recap of my 2014 Boston Marathon, a recap which I have struggled to write.

In one word, my year of running was EMOTIONAL.

Here is a snapshot from part of my year. The Boston Marathon 2014 #BostonStrong

Organic Runner Mom. Boston Strong. #BostonStrong

Boston Strong. #BostonStrong

2014 was a year of putting myself back together both physically and mentally.  2014 began and Boston Marathon training was in full swing.  Training for Boston in 2014 was important. I had run in 2013 finishing the race a mere 10 minutes before tragedy would occur at the finish line.  My training for the Boston Marathon 2014 was full of highs and lows. I continued with weekly therapy sessions to work through PTSD that had plagued me since the 2013 race.  I wanted to be at the starting line in 2014 in order to heal, to run and to be able to finish. I needed to be there. The emotional journey has been hard and sadness about what occurred on the bluebird sky day in Boston still sneaks up on me sometimes when I least expect it.

Along with emotional healing at the start of 2014 I knew I would have to work hard to get my body physically strong for the Boston Marathon.  The miles during this training cycle never came easy as they had the year before. I still had nagging tendonitis in my foot and the polar vortex had a strong grip on New England ensuring that every long run would put ice on your breath and cold in your bones. Thankfully I got in my miles with strong running friends as my partners who were somehow convinced to join me in my journey of healing to the Boston Marathon starting line.

Make the best of the freezing miles. Bundle up and get it done!

I felt nervous leading up to marathon weekend. I wasn’t sure how the emotions would fill me or if I would even want to be there on race day. Organic Runner Dad and I arrived in Boston for marathon weekend and even though I felt overwhelmed I also felt lifted up by the energy of all of the people in the city wearing blue and gold.  We arrived at race number pick-up where I was glad to pick-up my bib to begin my trip to the finish line. I needed to be with all of these other runners many of whom shared the same fears as I did.

Run Together. Boston Marathon 2014.

There were many overwhelming emotional moments during the weekend that stuck out in particular.  During packet pick-up I spoke with a man at the ticket desk in a quiet corner.  He asked, “had I run last year?” I told him I had and told him my story and about how I needed to be at the race to find healing. He too shared his story how he and his wife had been late to the finish line where they usually watched runners crossing when they heard the news on the radio.  They would have been there. Instead he lost a friend, Krystle. She had been standing there when everything happened. Tears welled in his eyes. I was silent but knew to offer a hug. The pain and emotion and the tears filled us both as we hugged for a moment. He told me he knew that he had to be at the race in 2014. He needed to. I understood but can’t even come close to understanding his level of grief.

Run Together. Boston Strong.

Run Together. Boston Strong.

On the morning of the marathon I felt on edge. I wanted to be at the starting line and to just get going.  When I arrived at the bus to the starting line I ended up in line with a woman named May. She had run the Boston Marathon every year for an amazing streak including 2013. In 2013 she had finished even closer to tragedy. She had just passed through the finish line when the bombs went off. Initially confused by the commotion and then upon realizing the danger was real she new she needed to get out of there. She told me she was able to get away from the finish area and then out of Boston as quickly as she could back to the safety of her home. She told me about the fear of returning to the city and how she hadn’t been back in the city since April 15, 2013.  She too was on a quest for healing. To run the race, to run strong and to finish.  We spent the entire morning leading up to the race together in the starting area and even in the starting corral. Her strength and resolve along with that of everyone at the start and lining the streets brought me new energy and strength to be there and be running. There was such comfort in being with someone who understood my experience.

And finally. The race. We stood at the starting line. Nervous. Muscles twitching and ready to go. Words for the tragedy. The National Anthem. A flood of tears as we crossed the starting line.  I felt strong and ready to run. Fooled by the ease of the downhill at the start of the race. Running the first mile past the tower of shoes for Meg (Meg another runner lost to tragedy during the year, another person to run strong for, #MegsMiles). I felt strong emotionally until about 9 miles in, I was running too fast and then I saw runners for Team Martin Richard. A wave of emotions crashed over me. I had to catch my breath. I slowed my pace. Trying to find something that was comfortable and trying to settle my emotions. I could not stop thinking about 2013. Now I ran with a small edge of fear and sadness. I ran on. I ran to finish. Knowing I had gone out far too fast I tried to focus on running and the experience. I worked to embrace every emotion that hit me. I ran and ran and ran.

Boston Strong

Exhausted by the unexpected heat, the tireless steps on the relentless pavement and exhausted emotionally I pressed on passing through the “Scream Tunnel” and tackling “Heartbreak Hill.” With each step I knew I was one step closer to conquering my fear of running down Boylston Street. Before we turned onto Boylston I came upon two men running on prosthetic legs, soldiers, injured in war.  If they could run this 26.2 then I could too. I ran for them. I ran for Martin Richard and his family I ran for Lingzi Lu and Krystle Campbell. I ran for Jeff Bauman. I ran for 264 people injured that horrible day and for everyone who was touched by the tragedy. As I crossed into the final mile. my head was spinning. I could see the finish line but needed to run down the metal chute of fences keeping the crowd safely from the runners. The previous year the fences were ripped away into a metal pile as spectators became heroes racing to save lives.  I pressed on. I pushed my pace. My breath quickening with each step. Until I crossed the line. A medal placed around my neck and immediately a sudden silence as the announcer marked the time of the tragedy that took hold of the heart and soul of Boston in 2013

Finisher of the 2014 Boston Marathon

I will save you the tale of the aftermath of my race as it was not pretty. But what happened on Marathon Monday 2014 brought me much needed healing.  I will always carry these experiences with me. I often reflect back on what I was a part of. I know I am lucky. I was close. But I was far enough to be able to walk away. Far enough to be able to live every day to be my best and to be with those who love me. I am stronger every day.

So yes, in one word, this year was emotional.  It has taken me a long time to write this. I guess I am finally ready to share my story. I hope that you will share my story with others.  What is your word? Tell me your story.

Happy National Running Day!

It’s National Running Day!

It’s National Running Day today (and my Dad’s birthday!!!). National Running Day is a day to celebrate your passion for running or perhaps even to make a change in your life and to join the current running craze. Last year my goal was to challenge myself and to find inner-strength. This year I run for happiness and positive energy.  Since running the Boston Marathon this year I have been feeling a renewed energy on every run.  I am focusing on the positive energy that running brings into my life to make me healthy and strong in mind, body and spirit.

It's National Running Day!

It’s National Running Day!

I am not currently training for a marathon but have other goal races planned including some mountain races (Mount Washington, Loon . . .) and also my first Olympic Distance Triathlon (and probably more triathlons!).  Since many of these races will be totally new experiences the pressure of the clock is off.  Being a “newbie” going into a race the first goal is always to finish and feel like I did my best, to finish with a smile.  I have no personal best times to compare to in most of these races which has taken off the pressure and added back in the fun of running again. Training and trying to qualify for Boston is amazing but can also make you feel like you are in a giant pressure cooker, making it impossible during most of your training to not be keenly aware of the time on your Garmin (GPS watch).

Today on National Running Day (June 4) I will complete my planned training run (50 minute base run) but will be focused solely on the running and feeling good and enjoying the happiness that fills me up as I run.

When you run today I want you to find what makes you happy on your run.  Here are some things that make me happy when I run:

  • I love the amazing scenery on my runs.
  • I am happy when I encounter wildlife on the trails (well, maybe only the smaller creatures . . . birds, salamanders, chipmunks.
  • I am happy when I run in the warm rain.
  • I feel energized from a good sweat.
  • I love a great endorphin rush.
  • I am happy for downhills and hard uphills conquered.
  • I love the sweet smells of spring and on the trails.

What makes you happy when you run? Have a great National Running Day!

Motivation Monday: Run for the love of the run.

Run for the love of the run.

Run for the love of the run.

Run for the love of the run.

Over the weekend I raced the Umbrella Mother’s Day 10K at Burke Mountain in Burke, VT.  This was my first race post Boston Marathon.  I have been much smarter about recovery from the Boston Marathon than I was last year where I nicely landed myself in a walking boot for six weeks. Ugh! I learned my lesson. Taking the time to recover from a marathon is essential in order to help prevent injury.  I am not sure how people are able to manage back to back marathon or ultra distance races.  My body feels like it has been beaten up at the end of a marathon.  In the three weeks since Boston I have refocused my training goals and have taken the time to allow my body to heal from the strain of 26.2 miles–I have been swimming, biking, doing yoga, doing core exercises and strength training but only a small bit of running.  It definitely feels somewhat strange to go from running crazy high mileage to almost nothing but my body is thanking me with renewed energy and a continued positive attitude.

Today when I got to the 10K, I ditched my watch and decided to run just for the love of the run.  I’ve been so focused on splits, miles, and time on my feet during my marathon training that its time to get back to the basics of running for a bit.  At the Boston Marathon I was able to take away an amazing positive spirit from my experience, a renewed feeling of love, and support that surrounds all of us.  My race at Boston did not provide me with the PR that I dreamed of or a new Boston qualifying time but it gave me back my love of the run.  It was the hardest race that I have ever run but it gave me a new lightness in my spirit.

Today was not my fastest 10K (although I was first in my age group! Time 53:37). My legs still feel heavy from all of the marathon miles but I felt joy on my run.  I loved my feet hitting the pavement. I loved the energy of the runners young and old.  I loved the mountains, and trees and nature all around me.  And most of all today (on Mother’s Day) I loved the happiness and excitement of seeing my kids and my husband at the finish line with huge grins, “Mommy, did you win?”

Yes, I have won. Where I am today looks a whole lot brighter than it did last year.

Run for the love of the run.

What did you love on your run this weekend?

Monday Motivation: Finding healing.

The Finish Line. Boston Marathon 2014.

The Finish Line. Boston Marathon 2014.

The Finish Line. Boston Marathon 2014.

And together we ran again.

Last week was an emotional ride with the Boston Marathon on Monday and the inevitable post-marathon let-down as the week wore on. I am so grateful for the experience of being able to run from Hopkinton to Boylston Street in Boston on Monday. Prior to the race I was extremely fearful about what race day would bring still haunted by the memories of last year.  It has definitely been an up and down year for me since Boston and running has been my one saving grace. Running the marathon again gave me something to focus on and something to fight for!

After the marathon last year I struggled to find any sort of inner-peace often replaying the events of April 15, 2013. I struggled with feeling alone a lot throughout the year, feeling constantly on high alert after having sat by myself, alone in the family meeting area after last year’s marathon for what seemed like an eternity with sirens wailing around me, people in an eerie calm, panic. I was so close to the bomb blasts last year but far enough away that no one knew what was going on and everyone was afraid. The day felt hauntingly like 9/11. A horrific nightmare.

Running the Boston Marathon this year was important to me for so many reasons one being that I needed to run the race again, to make it through the finish line, to complete the race and to feel the celebration, to feel the support of the crowds and the people all around cheering and screaming each runners name. I needed to push through the feelings of insecurity and anxiety and to let the passionate, exuberant crowds lift me and the other runners on our journey of healing.  Marathon Monday was overwhelming and amazing. I have never felt so inspired by the amount of incredible spirt and human strength of body, and heart and the stunning courage of so many people who raced the marathon on Patriots Day 2014.

I am forever grateful that I was able to run and be a part of this experience and to further my own healing.

The Boston Marathon. A race to remember.

I promise I will have more of a recap about the Boston Marathon 2014 coming soon. I am still overwhelmed by running the race this year and this time it is for positive reasons.

#PROOF Boston Marathon 2014

#PROOF Boston Marathon 2014

I ran my heart out on Monday and even though I did not PR and I did not re-qualify with my time I am very proud of my hard earned time of 3:45:43. The whole year leading up to the race has been an emotional journey and I have also fought hard to keep my body healthy and strong to be able to run injury free.

I am thankful to have been able to run the Boston Marathon with so many strong individuals. On Monday I witnessed the true strength of the human spirit and that energy has filled me up with new inspiration.

I will never forget this unbelievable race. Thank you for supporting me along the way. I ran for all of you and for those who could not.

I am proud to be BOSTON STRONG!

Putting it all into perspective.

Putting it all into perspective.

We are okay. Thankfully my husband and I walked away from a car accident uninjured today. Thankfully the kids were not in the car.

My nerves are very rattled (That is a total understatement!). I had a panic attack. The EMT had to give me oxygen. Strangely he was a marathoner too. Knowing this calmed me down and gave me something to focus on. My anxiety is already through the roof as I anticipate running the Boston Marathon on Monday. I have been jumpy for weeks, on edge. My counselor says that this is normal. I am already on high alert.  I am mentally preparing myself to run the same road again through the yellow and blue finish line on Boylston Street.  Last year my reality was rocked to the core ten minutes after I crossed the line as I tried to comprehend the awful sounds that I heard and the smoke rising from the explosions near the finish line.

Today we were okay. The sounds of the accident frightened me and brought me back to Boston. The sound of the truck hitting the back of our car was reminiscent of the explosions last year. I have been unable to erase those horrible sounds.  Sometimes they replay in my head. It all seems so real. With 4 days to go I am uncertain of what marathon day will bring but I am still in need of running the race. I need to run it again to close the loop of healing. I need to feel the strength of running and being surrounded by  the runners and spectators.

Am I afraid. Hell yes. But I will lace up my shoes and I will run. I will just run. I am okay.

The car accident today has been a huge reminder of how much love and strength, support, kindness and good is surrounding me. I am here. I have my family and my friends. I am alive. I can run.

We are okay.

I am thankful.

I am thankful. My life is full of love.

I am thankful. My life is full of love.

On Monday I will run 26.2 miles of gratitude. I will celebrate life and I will mourn for those who were lost.

Boston Marathon Race Day Outfit Preview

Boston Marathon Race Outfit 2014

Boston Marathon Race Outfit 2014

What will I be wearing at the Boston Marathon? It’s time to get ready to run, girl run!

If you have run in any type of long race you know how important your race day outfit can be. First and foremost your race day outfit needs to be functional and comfortable.  The last thing that any runner wants to experience when running a marathon is painful chafing (you know the kind that will cause you to shriek in pain in the shower after the race, no thanks!).  Also, you want to choose running clothes that will stay put (no one likes to have their shorts or running skirt riding up as the miles add up.  When choosing my running clothes for a marathon I always test them out during my long training runs to make sure that I won’t encounter any of these issues on race day.

Once I have determined if the clothes are worthy of 26.2 miles the next thing that I always like to consider is the style factor. Hey, at least if my clothes are cute I have a slight possibility of avoiding an embarrassing race day photo, right? When thinking about race day style I look for running clothes that have bright and fun colors, wild patterns, and I definitely want to be running in a skirt.  For some reason I have always loved wearing tall socks (this goes back to my days of Colby Crew way way back in 1999) so the Compression Sock craze (functional yet fashionable!) suits me just perfectly.

I am truly appreciative of Skirt Sports, Bani Bands, and Crazy Compression for providing me with the awesome gear that I will be wearing on Boston Marathon Monday as I run 26.2 Miles from Hopkinton to Boston.

Here is what I will be wearing on Marathon Monday as I speed by on the race course towards Boylston Street. If you want to track me I will be wearing BIB #18384:

  1. Skirt Sports Eclipse Tank in Azul, Skirt Sports Cougar Skirt in Azul, Skirt Sports Sabrina B Sports Bra in Black
  2. Bani Bands Head Band Sequin Purple
  3. Crazy Compression Purple Over the Calf Diamonds
  4. Brooks Adrenaline GTS

It’s time to run down the course and finish that race!
