Half Marathon #16… Magic City Half

On Sunday, I ran my 16th half marathon. Which is crazy to think about. I’ve run Magic City since it’s inaugural race when it was called the Ruben Studdard Run. This year the switched the course around and had it start and end at the new Regions Field where the Birmingham Barons play baseball. I […]

Dega Half… AKA What Happened??

  Half marathon number 15 is in the books… and it probably has taught me the most about running. I feel like I’ve had this sub 2 monkey on my back forever and that I was psyching myself out about it. I did all of my runs and my speed work accordingly. So, I was […]

Half Marathon #14 on Deck

I keep forgetting I’m racing this weekend. This week has been so busy and just coming off of vacation.. I just haven’t had the proper time to freak out about it. Which, is probably a good thing. We all know I’m a neurotic head case that can be a tad obsessive (don’t agree with me). […]

Merecedes Half Marathon 2014

Saturday night was my normal pre race shuffle of laying out my outfit (had to decide what to wear first!), gathering all of my stuff to take, making my race playlist, etc.   When I got off the interstate, so much adrenaline coursed through me that I thought I was going to vomit. And they […]

Two Weeks Until Mercedes Half

This past weekend, my Twitter turned in real life friend, Jen came into town on her way to rocking New Orleans and I just had to drive down and have dinner with her and several of the Resolute Runners. It was great to meet some new people and see some “old” faces. Jennifer is one […]
