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 […]

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 […]
