Taking A Few Days Off…

and not by choice ūüôĀ It happens to all of us right? Illness? family emergency? medical procedures? work? travel? SOMETHING! that prevents us from running that we cannot totally 100% control… This is my reality for the next few days. I had dental surgery – not a huge deal just am not supposed to work …

February aka RUNuary

February¬†… aka RUNuary… at least that is my hope. Run! Run! Run! all month long, well not every day but a lot… Yes it’s the shortest month of the year! And yup it’s the maybe¬†coldest month of the year! Oh and it’s also¬†probably¬†snowiest month of the season. However it will be the¬†best winter month of …

Starting Over?

Am I starting over? or just finding my base, I mean getting back to my base. What is a ‘base’ anyway? I guess it only matters what a base is to me right?… I think of it as a I’m not training for a specific event, or distance, I’m simply running for fun, for life, …

Trying Something New…

So… I’m trying something new… kinda new… I’m trying a 30 day challenge (a combo of a few actually). I’ve never done one before, I have worked on cross training and general strength but this 30 day challenge is a little different because its every day and its what I am hoping will jump start …

Life

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! …

Training update…

74. 74 days until my next half, the half I am supposed to own. The half I’m supposed to be ready for and I don’t feel ready. I don’t feel like I will be ready and I’m super nervous, at least the weather is improving, fingers crossed we are done with snow and sub 25 …
