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 […]

WIAW on Thursday

No, I didn’t look at the calendar wrong. I realize it’s Thursday, but I worked yesterday and it was too hard to get a post out. So, my What I Ate Wednesday is Thursday this week. Started my day with a 5 mile run at 5AM, it was cold. And it sleeted on us the […]

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 […]

What I ate (and did) Wednesday

It’s What I Ate Wednesday! I’m a creature of habit so I had my usual breakfast of bagel, peanut butter and banana. I was going to eat Almond butter but apparently I put it in the pantry and it’s supposed to be refrigerated. So, I’ll have to buy another jar. I went to the gym […]

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 […]

Random stuff and a winner!

This is a random post and we have a winner. I know you are probably more excited about that than my randomness! Today’s workout was a 5 mile run, it was actually one of the best 5 milers I’ve had in a while. It was still colder than I wanted it to be, but it […]

Starting out

Some of this is on the “About Me” page but I get asked a lot about how I lost my weight and how I got into running. It didn’t happen over night, it took years of me being over weight and “trying” (not really) to lose weight. I told myself I was a happy person, […]

Nike Training today

Went for a short warm up run today. Here I am in my glow in the dark shirt, can’t miss me coming! I downloaded the Nike Training app a few months ago and I really like it. They have 15-45 minute workouts, you can play your music in the background, the app tells you when […]

Cold morning run

I picked a nice, cold morning for my first early morning run in a month. Ran 5.44 miles at 5AM today and it went well, walked just a little bit of it. It was a hilly route but it felt great to be back out there! I also dusted off my Brooks Pure Flow running […]

Half Marathon Training

I’m in week 6 of my half marathon training for the Healdsburg Half in October. I started over with this training since I didn’t keep my mileage up in the summer. I am running a little faster and am able to keep it up for longer periods of time. I think running all summer in […]
