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 […]

St Patrick’s Day Decor

I have a secret. I LOVE St. Patrick’s Day. Okay. That’s not really a secret.  I also love themed holiday decorating. Since I’ve been snowed/iced in a lot lately, I got a little crafty. If it’s glitter… chances are, I want it. I’m in love with this pot of gold. He’s so cute! Do you […]

Running Lately

Getting out of my running funk was a bit of a struggle, but I’m happy to say that it has happened. Hood to Coast helped, as well as signing up for the next sub 2 half attempt at Talladega. I must say, Talladega will be warm but I think a cool front is moving through […]

I woke up Friday morning to an empty hotel room… all of my roommates had already hit the road for Mt Hood. Those of us that were still around, grabbed some breakfast and then finished getting ready. I debated on whether or not to share this info, but I woke up with some, um, female […]
