A month later.

I'm coming to terms with the fact that can not keep up with this blog full time. There are certainly times when I have a few minutes to write a post, but honestly most of the time I just don't feel like it or don't feel like I have anything to say that you'd be interested in reading about. I started writing as a way to keep track of training and to look back on what I've done, but nowadays I don't find that I need to do that. 

I'm currently addicted to Instagram and post there daily, so if you want to check out what's going on follow me @mainemomrunning (I promise to follow you back). 

I'm not ready to give up on the blog it just yet. I just currently have no motivation to keep coming up with ideas for posts. Sure, this blog has gotten me in touch with A LOT of great people and I've had a lot of fantastic opportunities come my way because of it, but it's not my job. 

Anyway, MDI is coming up very soon...17 days actually! I've very excited for a girls' night away and my birthday is the day before! I'm also a little bit nervous to keep up with Jen for the first half of the relay. We are running in two-person teams (Me/Stacy and Jen/Jill) so I'll be running with Jen and Stacy and Jill will take over at the halfway point. I've just been slowly building up my mileage from a huge drop over the last half of the summer while Jen had been in the middle of marathon training. One thing I know is we are going to be representing Spandits! again and I can not wait. Everyone commented on our skull capris last year! I think I know what ones I'm going to be wearing...

Spandits! 3/4 tights in Hyperspeed

I've been wanting 3/4 tights for a while and now that the cooler weather is here, it's the perfect opportunity to wear them. I can honestly say I have never put on a more comfortable pair of pants. They are the perfect length. They are the perfect fit. The fabric is silky soft and the freaking awesome. The first time I put them on I could not stop looking at them. I've slept in them. I've worked in them. I've run 10+ miles in them. Now I just need more of them! Seriously, go check them out at! And hey, if you'd like to save 10% on your order enter SPANDITSLOVE at checkout and there's free shipping through October 13th! Be sure to let them know Carrie sent you!

Until next time!


  1. I hear you. I am having much more fun with IG these days than my blog but I am posting now and then. Not ready to give it up. I have friends on there not on IG.

  2. I love the hyper purchase.

  3. Best wishes at MDI! I wanted to do it and couldn't make it work. I hope you consider the pasta dinner. My favorite runner is the guest speaker!
