It’s time for Friday Five linkup with DC area bloggers Courtney at Eat Pray Run DC, Cynthia at You Signed Up for What?!, and Mar at Mar on the Run!  Be sure to stop by their blogs and say hello!  While you’re there, be sure to check out other bloggers who are participating in the linkup, too.  This week, the DC Trifecta chose A Day In The Life as the theme…..


“The most important thing is to enjoy your life
– to be happy –
it’s all that matters.

~ Audrey Hepburn


So what’s a day like for me? I might start it with a wake-up call at 4:30 AM to meet my running friends at 5:30, or I might get up at 6:30 to train a client at 7:30.  Other days I might have the luxury of sleeping until 7:30 because my first appointment isn’t until 9.

With a schedule that’s different every day of the week, it’s difficult to tell you just exactly what one of my days is like.  Some days I see several clients, and some days just a few.  The one thing that you’ll find consistent is my love of running.  So I think it’s fair to say that one of my typical days includes:

  1. Running
  2. Talking to my clients about running
  3. Writing about running
  4. Planning my next run or race
  5. Following other runners on social media

Of course my days also involve lots of mundane activities like doing laundry, grocery shopping, cooking, tidying the house, cleaning, keeping up with paperwork, gardening, etc; but I didn’t want to bore you with all of that stuff…..


  • Questions:
  • Do you need lots of sleep, or just a little?
  • What does your typical day look like?
  • Who is racing this weekend?
