Mercedes Preview Course Run

  Hi. Remember me? I used to blog here. I can’t promise that I am back on a regular basis, but I’m going to give this thing a try again. Especially with my very first FULL MARATHON coming up. I love the Mercedes Marathon… it’s honestly one of the best races that I have ever […]

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 […]

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 […]

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). […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

It’s About Running.

I decided to get up before the chickens and drive to Birmingham Saturday morning to run with the Birmingham Track Club. They have an awesome group that meets on Saturdays and has multiple distances and multiple paces. With it being so flipping cold, The Trak Shak opened and let us hang inside while they went […]
