Dallas Marathon race review

I’m finally getting this done. The last few weeks have been a blur. I really enjoyed my time off at Christmas and got stuff done at home. But got no blogging done at all. The Dallas Marathon was supposed to be my first full in December 2013. But a little ice storm kinda halted that […]

Marathon playlist

With the Dallas Marathon 10 days away, it’s time to update the playlist and get my iPod ready to go! I have lots of different music and this is just a sampling of some of my current favorites. Some are new and some are just “new to me”.  I don’t normally listen to music when […]

Marathon Monday: training update

I know you all haven’t heard much from me lately. My family has had some heartache these last 2 months and I just haven’t been blogging. I have been running, with the exception of one week off. I’m still training for my upcoming races, but I’m unsure about setting goals for them just yet. Part […]

Marathon Monday: training update

This last week wasn’t quite what I had hoped it would be. Life has been crazy, my family is going through a rough October. I was supposed to run a half marathon Saturday but opted not to. I was emotionally and physically exhausted. By the time I was home Friday night, nothing was ready to […]

Marathon Monday: training update

8 weeks and counting! I’m starting to feel a little more confident about my next full, but still doubting my sanity at about mile 17 of 20. My friend and I decided sane people don’t run 20 miles. Sane people are at home drinking coffee, reading the paper, doing normal things. Of course I remember […]

Marathon Monday: training update

This is the 2nd Monday in a row we’ve woken up to storms. Lots of wind and heavy rain. We need the rain here badly, our lakes are drying up. It’s not a good sight. When we moved someone told me it would take a year to get the everything settled, I didn’t believe them […]

Marathon Monday: training update #3

It’s a rainy Monday morning here. I got woken up about 5AM to some crazy lightning, thunder and then a hail and rain storm. We need the rain badly, but I can do without the hail hitting the house and cars. Oh, how I love to sleep in on days like this too! Less than […]
