Princess of Steel

Princess of Steel

By Princess Jodi When my spring race calendar started to come together, a definite theme emerged: badass. Starting with Around The Bay, I would run my longest race ever on an infamously challenging 30K course and follow that up a month later by becoming a Runner of Steel while running the bridges of the Pittsburgh Half-Marathon. While I … Continue reading

39 and Holding on Tight

39 and Holding on Tight

By Princess Alana Well the day has come that I am officially holding on tight to my 39th birthday. I can’t help but reminisce and reflect on how lucky I am to have a wonderful family, a vocation in teaching and a great group of friends. Fortunately, as well, I have been given a clean bill … Continue reading

Winning the Nike Lottery

By Princess Jodi Remember that time we entered the Nike DC lottery and didn’t get in? And took it totally personally and grew a chip on our shoulders for Nike?

Around The Bay 30K in Pictures

Around The Bay 30K in Pictures

By Princess Jodi I didn’t blog much about the training for this race, despite the hours on hours of treadmill slogging required to get race ready during the coldest, most uncooperative winter, for a very simple reason: I didn’t know if I could actually do it. It was my longest race ever, and also my longest run … Continue reading

Mania & Magic: runDisney Registration Days

By Princess Jodi It’s been one week since the drama and insanity of Disney’s Wine and Dine Half-Marathon Weekend registration. Maybe I have PTSD, but I have not been able to think or talk about it without twitching until now. First things first, we got in. Fist pump. This was my first time needing to … Continue reading

Seeing The Light (Spring Training)

Seeing The Light (Spring Training)

By Princess Laural It’s no secret that this winter has been tough for me. It was colder than I anticipated (which is ridiculous since we’re in Canada), and I lost momentum after running my first marathon. Add in some life events that were way out of my control – a car accident, an unexpected diagnosis … Continue reading

One Badass Road Trip

One Badass Road Trip

By Princess Jodi February was rough for me. It was dark and grey and cold and awful. It was the shortest month of the year, but felt like the longest by far. Snow upon snow, bitter cold temperatures, and freezing rain on top of the record snowfalls buried my beloved sidewalks and made being outside … Continue reading

From Running to Spectating

From Running to Spectating

By Princess Laural As a runner, I’ve done a fair number of races, and I love when people come out to cheer me on. In fact, if you name a race, I can name the spectator, whether it was a friend or a complete stranger, that kept me going. There are so many times when … Continue reading

Running Mojo: Keeping It Up

Running Mojo: Keeping It Up

By Princess Alana When Princess Laural posted about her recent running slump, my first thought was that she is human!!! I was so proud of her first marathon achievement, her training and dedication. And, Princess Jodi is the most committed and dedicated person I have ever met in my life. These Princesses, to me, make … Continue reading
