Ramblings of a Long Run

Today I went out for my last long run before my first marathon - 8 miles on a beautiful day all by myself. About halfway through my run, I had this thought: "I should blog about all of the things that go through my mind during a solo long run!" After all, 8 miles is… Continue reading Ramblings of a Long Run

2015 Running Year in Review

As promised, I'm giving my running its own post for 2015! This was a big year for me. I ran further than I ever have before. I ran faster than I ever before. I ran races that I never thought I could. I ran after my goals and I crushed them. So first, lets talk… Continue reading 2015 Running Year in Review

Banking the Miles: July/August Update

I'm running the Crim in less than 2 weeks. To say that I am nervous would be an understatement. This will be the longest race I have ever run... by a whole lot. I haven't even run an official 10k in more than a year... and in less than 2 weeks I will be running… Continue reading Banking the Miles: July/August Update

Race Recap: The Chip River Run 2015

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

Race Recap: The Snowman’s 5k

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

Ready To Go in 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!

Goals for 2014, Month of Movement

Month of Movement

I can't believe that it is already February.  January flew by!  Especially the last two weeks... and I have no blog entries to show for it.  I also haven't been using MyFitnessPal and I missed a week of Zumba.  Oh and we won't talk about my project 365... :( I have fallen into the resolutioner… Continue reading Month of Movement

Getting Past Setbacks

So I posted not too long ago about a challenge that I was going after - a 6 week 5k training plan.  I went into the challenge head on and hard - I pushed myself to run at a faster pace and I completed the first week of the workout.  On the very last workout… Continue reading Getting Past Setbacks
