You might have noticed that I haven’t posted about training in a few weeks, partly because I haven’t been training, but mostly because I was traveling overseas for business and didn’t feel like doing battle with the spotty wi-fi connections.

What Would Betty Do Logo The Night Before a Trip

OCD Pre-Trip Checklists The night before I depart for any trip usually goes as follows: There’s still room in this suitcase. Maybe one more shirt…. I can’t forget my passport. Crap!

What Would Betty Do Logo Training: The Road to San Francisco

A Short Workout is Better Than No Workout Several of us committed to the Rock and Roll San Francisco half marathon on a whim, sight unseen.

What Would Betty Do Logo Betty Asks: I Want Your Advice

I’m doing the format a little bit differently this week. I’ll be traveling a lot in the coming months, and need book recommendations. Fiction, nonfiction… nothing is out of the realm of possibility.

What Would Betty Do Logo Training: Remember When I Used to Post About My Training?

Ok, I’ve been a bit of a posting slacker lately, but really, there wasn’t much to report for quite some time. But last Sunday, I ran the Race to Stop the Silence 8K in Washington, DC. I had many things to talk about after that, but seeing how I was traveling and tired… well, it […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Betty Says: Life Lessons Learned While Traveling

I just got back from a week-long combination business/personal tour of the east coast, and I came to a few interesting revelations that seem obvious in hindsight, but gave me those “a-ha!” moments at the time.

We have important topics to discuss here, people: what should I wear for my 8K in DC¬†on April 29?
