TRX Rip Core

Since Mercedes is open and I really don’t have any races on my schedule, I was discussing with Coach Ann about what I wanted to concentrate on next. Ultimately, I’d like a 5K or a 10K PR for the Spring and to strengthen all these stabilizing muscles and get my core stronger. Ann suggested some […]

Running Friends

Lately, my runs don’t feel that amazing. Not that I’m running too fast or too far, but the humidity and heat will get a gal down. I’m longing for those crisp Fall mornings where you could run forever. The thick air and temperatures in the 70’s before the sun comes up, makes running almost feel […]

Strawberry Festival 5K

Saturday morning found me at my first 5K in almost 2 years… I just stopped running them to concentrate on distance. My PR for a 5K was 29:25 and it was set on this same course, so I was looking forward to seeing what I could do. My friend Sunny was racing. As many times […]

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). […]

Triple Tangent Tuesday

1. I stepped out of my comfort zone, once again, and went to the Birmingham Track Club End of the Year Party. I met some more of my Resolute Running teammates and Tanya was nice enough to want a picture with me… She must have felt my super uncomfortable vibes rolling off of me. The […]

Resolute Running

So. I sort of did something crazy and definitely out of the norm. I hired a running coach. I know me and how I operate (it’s a gift of having known myself for 29 years) and if left to my own devices, I would jump back into running with both feet… which is hard to […]
