A Little Break…

I’m taking, well I have taken, a little break I’m not sure what to write about, I don’t feel like writing and I don’t want to just blabber on about my meh-ness so… i’ll be back, hopefully soon

Running Sucks

Running sucks. Running sucks for a boat load of reasons, every changing, horrible, awful, dreadful, sad reasons. Examples include, injuries, laundry, expensive must have gear, blisters, missing runs, humidity, sore muscles, bad runs, dead GPS watches,  way too freeking early race starts, chafing, RUNger, ice, broken cell phones, lack of PRs, race costs – shall …

408K Recap

I ran this for the bling! 100% for the bling (and the t-shirt! it’s pretty cool, I should have taken a pic before I tossed it into the dirty laundry bin… oops) This was one of the races that I REALLY didn’t want to miss out on the bling, I had such race FOMO/Envy last …

Pi Day 5K Recap

Yay Pi Day! A day for the geeks, nerds, and numbers people (in all of us?) It’s been a very long time since I have recapped a race, even longer since I’ve run one and maybe the first time I’ve ever recapped a virtual race. I decided to do Fitfam’s Pi Day5K because umm Pi Day! …

Cherries

Time for another installment of my semi frequent Foods For Runners themed posts… This time? Cherries! Yay Cherries! Last summer I lived on cherries. (I should note that I was pregnant and not running but still… ) Every day I wanted cherries, cherries, cherries and more cherries. Both the ones you can eat and tart cherry …

Still Chasing A PR

In 88 days (if my math is correct) I am running another Half Marathon, at least I think I am. Hopefully my training continues to progress and I am able to run a half marathon.  I am seeking, chasing, hoping, praying, preparing, training, working FOR a PR. I have a lot of my hopes in the …
