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 […]

It’s What I Ate (and did) Wednesday!

Welcome to another edition of What I ate Wednesday! Even though this one is mostly what I did Wednesday. Today is my day off and it’s gym day. I am worn out! I warmed up on the elliptical (I got bored after about 8 minutes). Then abs, legs, arms, plank and a cool down on […]

14 miles is….done!

Yep, 14 miles! I finally broke past 13.1. I’ve never tried to, wasn’t sure I could. It’s definitely a confidence booster to accomplish a longer distance. It all started when I said out loud I was hoping to run my first full marathon this year, in December. I’m a part of a great running club […]

We have a winner and a not-so-great run

This morning was my first run since Sunday. I would have thought my legs would be plenty rested, but they had other plans. Let’s just say I’m glad it’s done. I should be good to go for Saturday! I have a 6 mile training run followed by a 5k race. My daughter apparently inherited my […]

Dallas Rock N’ Roll Half Marathon!

It’s done! I was so looking forward to this race and now I couldn’t be happier it’s done. I knew a lot of people running it and really enjoy seeing everyone running and our running family out there cheering! The weekend started with the expo on Saturday. Rock N’ Roll really knows how to put […]

Great run and Empower Fitness review!

One of those great runs! It’s not often but once in a while a run happens to be great! Everything is in line – pace and breathing, I feel like I could just keep running! I had one of those runs this morning, it was “only” 4.28 miles but at a sub-10 pace and it […]

St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I had a really nice weekend. Started out with a 9 mile training run around White Rock Lake, first time and it was so nice. We started when it was still dark, so toward the end the sun started coming up and the views were really great and it was calming. […]
