After accomplishing a couple of incredible PRs in the half marathon distance, I decided to "seek discomfort" (as my friend Katelyn puts it) and push to get a 10k PR. The 10k is my least favorite race distance. It is too short to take it easy, and a long distance to go all out. It … Continue reading Race Recap: Greater Midland Dow RunWalk 10k 2019
April ended with a bit of a weird feeling that hung around for a while in May. May was a busy month between doing a run streak, training to beat my 10k PR, and having fun in my social life. So although I'm a little disappointed that I did not do any blogging last month, … Continue reading April & May 2019 Training Recap

Anyway, … Continue reading What I Ate Wednesday: Roadtrip to Shamrock Edition!

I wanted to run/walk 1000 miles total in the year, which was a pretty lofty goal considering I had done just 835 in 2017. I wanted to … Continue reading My 2018 Running Year in Review
Every year I set goals for myself... and although I find that putting it in writing makes a goal real, sometimes I'm too hard on myself when I don't hit them. So instead I'm going to write down ideas... some may really be goals, maybe they're just wishes and dreams... for what may come in … Continue reading My Ideas, Goals and Dreams for 2019
