What women talk about on the run

August 9, 2013 by Gail Kislevitz

One of the things I love most about running with my girlfriends is the conversations we have. When running for two plus hours, we need to have stimulating conversations! No topic is sacred. Husbands, children, significant others, sex, religion, politics, and rock and roll. (The 60s and early 70s had the best music ever!)

I have no idea what guys talk about on their long runs but I would wager a bet it doesn’t come close Read More

If you had told me when I was 15 years that in 15 years I would be a marathoner, I would have laughed in your face.Back then I was an overweight teen spending most of my time in front of a TV and/or on the couch doing homework.   In an effort to become healthy and attractive to others, I tried all the fad diets and extreme weight loss techniques out there Read More

Procrastination, thy Name is Runner

August 8, 2013 by gail Kislevitz

Back in the day when I trained for marathons on my own (such a bad idea!) it would take me forever to get out the door. Why? Because I procrastinated. Why? Because no one was waiting for me. The thought of running 15-20 miles alone is not fun so I made up excuses for not getting out the door.  Silly things like deciding to put in a load of wash while I am heading out Read More

Rooti Toot Toot

July 22, 2013 by Gail Kislevitz

The other day I was out for a long run with two of my close guy runner friends. When you’ve been running as long as I have, you’ve pretty much seen and heard everything.  Running buddies become immune to bodily functions, gear change (aka, stripping down to skives), and dodging snot rockets. So when one of my friends became a bit flatulent, we didn’t say anything, didn’t even giggle a bit. He was a bit Read More

Running With TFK

July 18, 2013 by Gail Kislevitz

You’d think that being a runner for more than 30 years would prepare me for answering the question, “Why do I run?” Well, it isn’t so easy. My answer could vary depending on the day, my mood, or what I am training for. In fact, most of the time I just look dumbfounded at the questioner because running for me is so instinctual. But I will tell you that ever since I have been a Read More
