Chicago Bound

October 7, 2013 by Coach Gail Kislevitz

Six days from now I’ll be running the Chicago Marathon. I’m getting so excited, nervous, and anxious that you’d think this was my first marathon! I feel over-trained, no, under-trained; I’m’ eating too much, no, not enough; I should get more sleep, but I can’t.  And to make it more interesting, as a destination marathon I need to pack and I pack everything. What if it gets cold? What if it gets hot (which Chicago Read More

The Great Grete Waitz

October 4, 2013 by Coach Gail Kislevitz

If you are running Grete’s Great Gallop Half Marathon on Sunday, you should know something about the legendary woman it is named for. Grete Waitz was a young track star in her home of Oslo, Norway, as well as a national champion in many events throughout Europe but unknown in the United States. In 1978, when she planning on retiring from competing, her husband and coach, Jack Waitz, suggested she apply to run the NYC Read More

Let the Run Come to You

October 3, 2013 by Coach Gail Kislevitz

These next two weeks, many of our TFK family will be running their first 20-miler.  What a milestone! You have all come such a long way since June, when all this started for most of you. I hope that many of you share TFK member Laura Howell’s feeling that it has all been worth it.

Here’s a piece of advice for when you run the marathon: Let the race come to you. What do I Read More

Love the Long Run

September 23, 2013 by Coach Gail Kislevitz

Let’s face it - we have to do them so we might as well learn to like them. As TFK mentor and alumni Norm Solomon says, “The long run is the heart of any marathon training program, and the one most runners face with dread.” Running 20+ miles may not be everyone’s cup of tea but to run the marathon, it’s part of the process. It certainly helps to have TFK by your side when Read More

Good Times at the Tune-up

September 15, 2013 by Coach Gail Kislevitz

The NYRR 18-mile tune up today was one of those days when everything came together. Starting with a perfect day for running, the team started to collect at the our TFK tune-up spot around 6:30, some huddled in blankets and extra layers to ward off the 50 degree chill in the air. After Sid’s stretch and warm up, which had everyone laughing and smiling as only Sid can do, we gathered in our corrals and Read More

Storm Clouds Brewing

September 12, 2013 by Gail Kislevitz

I just went out to run an 8-miler at marathon pace. I knew there were severe thunderstorm warnings for the afternoon, but I didn’t expect the storm to swoop in so early. By mile 3, I was dodging fallen tree branches, pelting rain, thunder that shook my bones and lighting strikes that scared the *** out of me. Luckily I was doing a loop so I could high tail it home pretty darn quick. The Read More
