Last week I was nothing but nerves because after running my 20 miler, the top of my foot was so painful I could hardly walk. I did all kinds of RICE: rest, ice, compression, elevation. On Wednesday I went with my friend Christine to a free injury clinic at a local running store. The PT… Continue reading Two Weeks til Marathon #3!

As I was scrolling through Facebook this afternoon, I saw a friend post that she was doing Couch-2-5k. This overwhelming excitement built up inside of me... and inspired me to write this post. You Know You're a Runner When... (or at least this is how I knew I was a runner) You get overly excited… Continue reading You Know You’re a Runner When…

After my awesome performance at the Cedar Point race, I set my sights on training for a 10 mile race - my goal is to run the Crim this year. I have been super diligent about my training plan, and it is definitely paying off. I have been doing run/walk intervals... I'm sure there's mixed… Continue reading Race Recap: St. Mary’s Bee Healthy for Life 5k
Well guys, I have really been slacking. I have been slacking on my miles and I have been slacking on my posts! So much has happened in the last few months... a few of my friends and family have gotten engaged, pregnancies have been announced, my best friend moved to another state, and another friend… Continue reading Banking the Miles 2015: May Update
This is my third year running this race, and every year it has been so very different. Not only the course but the conditions. Each year presents its own challenges, but this year... this year was definitely the most challenging. My lack of posts coincides with my lack of training. I have been seriously slacking.… Continue reading Race Recap: The Chip River Run 2015

Yesterday I ran my first race since my 10k back in March. In the meantime, I have really been "banking the miles" (I'll post an update on that later!) and staying very active. There were a few races in between that I could have done, but because we are trying to save money to fix… Continue reading Race Recap: Chip River Run 2014

Along with it, I posted my weight, my thoughts on dieting, and my goals for myself. On 1/3/13, I weighed178.4#. I was just barely starting to run again. I was using MyFitnessPal here and… Continue reading Public Humiliation Update
