Thoughts During Speed Work

This morning’s alarm went off like any other.. way too early. The thought crossed my mind as I saw that 4:30 flashing on my phone screen, to just turn it off and pull the covers up over my head. But I thought about how hot it’s been lately and the thought of a cool morning […]

Turning the BIG 3-0

Birthdays are really big deal to me. I was raised that way. You get to celebrate the entire week, if you want! Since this was a big one, my friends started in on Monday, reminding me every day that it was my last Monday of being 29. Friday, the UPS man dropped off something special… […]

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). […]

EPIC News– Nuun Hood to Coast

I got some majorly EPIC news yesterday… I was chosen to run Hood to Coast for the Nuun relay team. When I applied, I never thought I would get in… I’ve tracked these bloggers for the past 2 or 3 years and they are wicked awesome. Of course, the majority of last night was spent […]

My First Snow Run

We woke up Thursday morning to a Winter Wonderland. Except, I like Summer and am over this extremely cold weather. This was, of course, after already being trapped in the house for 2 days… err… I mean, being at home with my sweet redheaded children who love to fight in a fort and bake in […]

2013 Year in Review

Run/swim/bike a combined total of 1500 miles. Didn’t happen. I was right at 1,000 miles.. pretty far off.  Run 3 half marathons this Spring. DONE.  Complete 3 tri’s this summer. Only did 2.. stupid injury.  Don’t die during the Ragnar Relay. DONE.  Run a sub 2:15 half marathon. DONE.  Cook dinner every night for an […]

Half Marathon #11, coming right up.

I suppose I should discuss the fact that I have a half marathon coming up in a few days…Blah. That’s exactly how I feel about it at this moment. Which isn’t a good racing mindset, let me tell ya. Life is just busy right now, and with it being so cold, it’s really hard to […]
