What’s new?

The date is May 16, 2017. I honestly can’t believe it’s been this long since I’ve written anything. So much has happened in the last few years. Good, bad and everything in between. I have so much to say, but where do I start? Injury, oh yeah, that. I started running in late 2011 and […]

Weekly run-down

I made a decision a while back to work on getting my pace down. I’ve been comfy at 9:30 for a while, it’s really become my easy pace. My body automatically goes there. So, I’ve been trying to break that since I want to break a 1:45 half this year. It may just be my […]

The last week was a blur, I’m not even sure I remember everything. Let’s start with the easy stuff: training.

Rock n’ Roll Dallas 2015 re-cap

Since I never got my New Orleans full recap up, I figured I’d better get busy on this one ASAP! This race was a different one for me, in a good way. It’s so fun to be there when your friends hit their goals they work soooo hard to achieve! Ally went with me to […]

Weekly run-down

Last week was busy! Ally started middle school track. They only have 4 meets. The first one got snowed out and the second one almost got rained out. The field events did get cancelled. This week is the district qualifier, I’m not sure how that works since there haven’t been any field events so far. […]

The perfect time to train for a marathon

When is the right time or the perfect time to train for a full marathon? Christina at Crazy Mama Runner asked that question last week in our Sweat Pink Ambassador group. She got varying responses but almost everyone agreed, there’s never a perfect time. Everyone has their reason for running. A marathon is no easy […]

Last week was finally a full week of running and getting to the gym. No snow, no ice, not much sunshine either. But hey, we need the rain. It’s sunny here today though! Training last week: Sunday: Gym day Monday: Rest day Tuesday: Track, 4×1 mile repeats, 8 miles including warm up and cool down, […]

Weekly run-down

I’m holding out hope that this week will be a regular run week for me. The last several weeks have been short because of weather. Texas has lost it! Training last week: Sunday: 10 miles. This is a funny story. We ran at 4:30 in the afternoon! Monday: Rest day Tuesday: Track, 12×400 with 400 […]

Weekly run-down

Guess how many miles I ran last week? Zero. It was a planned rest week and the good Lord agreed when he sent the ice, snow, rain and plummeting temperatures. I did make it to the gym. (some) Sunday: Rain, then the ice moved in. Monday: Ice. Tuesday: Still ice. I did go to work for […]

Weekly run-down

A day late, I know it. We are experiencing #IceMageddon2015 around here and I was distracted by Netflix yesterday. Remeber #IceMageddon2013 when the Dallas Marathon was cancelled? Here’s a good read if you missed it. That storm was way worse than what we have now. Training last week: Sunday: Gym day, did all kinds of […]
