That, my dears, is the sound of relief. No, this is not a blog about my backfield being in motion - thank goodness that is fine and dandy!
It’s the sound of relief after the building pressure of being unable to run for the last two weeks ha... Read more
This blog has been a long time in the making. To quote myself from Facebook…
ý6 months of training, short runs, long runs, gels, chews, honey, electrolytes, strength training, laughter, tears, shin splints, compression sleeve... Read more
So I noted on my status earlier today that I was trying out a late afternoon cuppa coffee to see how it affected my energy for my maintenance run. I had my 8 cups of water in already for the day, so I wasn't shorting myself that way. It was quit... Read more
So my status on Wednesday was that I didn’t get my run in on Tuesday, but I DID get a BodyBugg! Yay me!

It feels like I've been trying to blog for-ev-ah but just haven't had the time. I exagerate, of course. It's only been a few days, but still!
Let's see.. Saturday. I ran with the Tribe. We met at REI and ran up to Lincoln High School track,... Read more
Bill and I have been married for 3 years, as of June 2. We've had a few bumps in the road lately (queen of the understatement indeed) but we are together and just like getting fit and healthy takes commitment and determination and work, so does ... Read more
