Marathon Monday: training update

It’s just under 2 weeks until Rock N’ Roll New Orleans full marathon! A lot has happened in the last few weeks after Dallas. I finished Dallas not wanting to run New Orleans. I know that’s crazy to decide at mile 26 never to run another full again. But, oh well. So, here I am […]

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 […]

2014: My year in racing {link-up}

Thanks to Montana over at Pretty Lil Mudder for hosting this link up!   Here is my run down of racing this year! Most Scenic Course: Dallas Marathon, this course went all over Dallas. There was always something to see. Lots of pretty houses, Greenville Avenue, White Rock Lake, Highland Park Fire Station had a […]

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

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 #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 […]

Marathon Monday: training update

I am in the throes of marathon training. Not really sure where/when the plan began, I’ve been training to train at a faster pace for a while. This summer has worn me out and made me feel like I couldn’t run another step. Part of that was heat and part was just plain emotions and […]

Weekly recap

I’m starting to get more in a routine again. Moving is hard work and it gets in the way of running, that’s for sure. We are still house hunting and hope to get settled soon. It has been hard getting used to the humidity and not feeling like I suck at running.  But, I do […]

Cowtown race weekend, part 1 {2014}

I don’t even know where to start. The last few days have been a roller coaster. Who am I kidding, the last few months have been. This has been a 7.5 month journey, thanks to “Icemageddon” 2013 and the Dallas marathon being cancelled. We headed to Ft. Worth Friday night, it just makes the weekend […]

Marathon training, virtual 5k and a valentine cookie

8 more days until I’m at that starting line. I cannot wait! I have checked the weather and it looks gorgeous right now, just praying it stays that way. This week is either going to be the quickest or slowest week ever. Training this week: Sunday: Rest day Monday: Gym day, very light workout with […]
