It has been a week since I ran the Detroit Free Press/TCF Bank International Half Marathon, and it's about dang time that I write up my race recap. TL;DR - It was a whole lot of fun, with some crazy ups and downs thrown in, and I'm not just talking about the bridge and the… Continue reading Race Recap: Detroit Free Press/TCF Bank International Half Marathon 2019
Today marks one month until I stand at the start line of another marathon. To say I have mixed feelings about this is an absolute understatement. August and September had some major ups in my training and running accomplishments, and also some major downs. Just like hills are an important part of a training plan,… Continue reading August & September Training Recaps
When your training hits a speed bump, especially while you are on vacation from work, you start to reflect on a lot of things. Today I’m reflecting on the fact that I don’t blog nearly as much as I would like to. And I have missed some recaps of races along the way. So here’s… Continue reading 2019 Race Recaps (So Far…)
With how many races I have run over the years, you would think it would be difficult for me to choose my favorite race. But hands down, Crim is it. This year was my 5th year in a row running this race and it was another incredible year! Each year has its own special memories,… Continue reading Race Recap: Crim 10 Miler 2019
Here we are, halfway through August, and I am just getting around to writing my July training recap. I also am realizing that I have slacked on updating my blog lately.

As I sit here on my first day of my long weekend and reflect on June, I am realizing... wow. It was a busy month! Besides my own training and racing, I cheered on friends at a few races, worked at a trail race and a triathlon, helped my friend get her house ready to… Continue reading June Training Recap
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
It has been 3 weeks since the Glass City Owens Corning Half Marathon and I am still struggling to write this recap. I would love to give the excuse that life has gotten so busy and I haven't had time (and I have been busy, so that wouldn't be a lie) but it is honestly… Continue reading Race Recap: Owens Corning Half Marathon 2019

Good morning everyone! How are you doing on this Marathon Monday? I will be at work today, checking in on the app to see how my friends are doing, wishing I had taken the day off so I can watch the race live. It is on my bucket list to go to the Boston Marathon… Continue reading Marathon Monday 2019!

This was my first time running back to back races on different days. I have run the Irish Double… Continue reading Race Recap: Yeungling Shamrock Dolphin Challenge – Part Two
Ooof, it has been 2 weeks already since I completed the Yeungling Shamrock Dolphin Challenge in Virginia Beach, and I'm finally getting around to writing a recap of my experience!

Happy Wednesday to my followers and readers! To me it felt like a Monday... it was my first day back to work after a 5 day vacation.

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