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! It was such a fun weekend full of friends, good food, and of course running. To really capture everything I want to share, I'll split… Continue reading Race Recap: Yeungling Shamrock Dolphin Challenge – Part One
I will admit, I have been in a funk the last couple of weeks. I have re-gained some of the weight that I worked so hard to lose, I haven't been running or working out so much, and my eating has been crappy. I had been doing great with my training plan (only one month… Continue reading Race Recap: BARC St. Pat’s Races
I have been racing against myself for the past few years. It is really awesome to see my mileage and speed improve each year.

This January was the best January for miles… Continue reading Banking the Miles 2016: First Update
2016 is off to a great start for running! Although I have not exactly stuck to my training plan, I have been running 3-4 days per week.

As you might recall, one of my goals… Continue reading Race Recap: Winterlaufe 2015 8k
We are more than a month into the New Year, and I have gotten a great start to my Goals for 2015. Although a bout of the stomach flu derailed some of my momentum at the beginning of January, I did follow through on my goal of running a race, even though I did not… Continue reading Race Recap: The Snowman’s 5k
It is a New Year again, and I have already seen an influx of "Resolutioners" coming to my gym. The aisles of my local grocery store are stocked with protein powders, weight loss shakes, and slimming supplements. I'm even guilty myself of focusing more on fitness in the early months of the year, and of… Continue reading Goals for 2015
This post will be my go-to for the races I want to run this year. One of my goals is to run one race every month in 2015. My big goal of the year is to run a half marathon! I will probably aim to run the Mid-Land Half in November, but who knows... maybe… Continue reading Ready To Go in 2015!
