This page is part of a class project.

It was previously used as a personal journal to record my training for an all women’s half marathon in York, Maine.  It housed train plans, tips, and recipes I ate during this period in my life.

Most posts have been hidden from view because they are out dated and life has changed quiet a bit since my last post!

During my time writing the blog, I had the privilege of interviewing Katherine Switzer who was the first women to run the Boston Marathon.  She has quiet the story and it is worth a read!

  1. Just found your blog Pam. Hope your training is going well. Love your blog so far. I’m a runner in the Boston area as well. So about turning 25…I just celebrated #40 (actually can’t believe it! In my head I’m still 30!) and had a very hard time with it to say the least. So the day came and went and nothing bad happened. I’m still the same person who loves to have fun with my friends and family, run, play tennis, travel, eat healthy etc. Age is but a #. It’s the attitude that’s important. As a friend recently told me “better to be young at heart.” Yes, indeed! Have a great day!

  2. Hi Pam, I came across your blog from the Maine Coast Half Marathon website. I enjoyed browsing through, and found myself relating to a lot of your points. I just turned 28 (I feel like 25 was an hour ago!), and have been tossing around my goals to become more healthy and holistic for several years. I work in health care as well, and am reminded daily how lifestyle ‘adds up’ over time and can really change the way you age in the long run…. I have always admired long-distance running, so I began running on 05/01/09. In the beginning, it was pretty miserable and honestly not enjoyable. Running just one mile was about as far as I could manage in the beginning. But I kept at it, and just ran the Falmouth Road Race (7.2 miles!) last weekend and felt SOOOOOOOOO good crossing the finish line! My next goal is the Maine Coast Half Marathon, and I am really looking forward to the weather and fall atmosphere. Good luck in your training, and remember, the mental component is the biggest challenge! You’re on the right track, enjoy your training and celebrate your accomplishments!!

  3. Emily and Pam- we have a lot in common we should run together! 🙂 I am 28, just did Falmouth, and I am training for the Maine Coast HM too. I live in Hull, email me if you want to run together sometime! Find me on Facebook or shoot me an email lorellegay@hotmail.com 🙂

    I came across your blog through Kath’s and just wanted to wish you good luck with your training for the Maine Half Marathon! I too just turned 25 and after an injury running I am trying to get back to my healthy eating and exercising habits. I live in Boston as well and just started a blog after attending the Healthy Living Summit a couple weekends ago. Great site!
