Wow guys. I must be busy... since I just noticed that I never wrote a recap for the Winterlaufe 8k that happened at the beginning of the month! Geez.

Every year in June, the hospital that I work for puts on a 5k/10k race.

When I signed up for the race this year,… Continue reading Race Recap: 2016 Bee Healthy for Life 10k
Today I ran my first half marathon. This race has been a few years in the making. I was signed up for a half marathon in November 2014, but due to personal reasons I wasn't able to run. I signed up for the same half a year later, but ended up with a nasty cough… Continue reading Race Recap: Go the Extra Miles for Covenant Kids Half Marathon

I find myself going to the gym thinking there's no way I can run 3 miles... and then I not only do 3 miles, but I do negative… Continue reading Race Recap: BARC Freeze Your Fanny 5k

Last year, this race kicked my butt. This year, I OWNED it. I had both better training and the weather on my side. It was 11 degrees cooler this year compared to last year. I have been running on average about 8-10 miles per week, in June 2013 I was only running 4-5. Oh yeah,… Continue reading Race Recap: The Little Foot Run 5k
