Hot Chocolate 15k

Saturday, February 14, 2015      11 comments

Today I took a little bit of a break from my half marathon training and I did a 15k. I guess that wasn't really a break was it? Today's half training called for 8 miles at a 12.0 min/mile pace. I did 9.3 miles for the race. I did it for fun ... Read more

Week Three of Half Marathon Training

Saturday, January 24, 2015      10 comments

This week didn't really turn out as I had expected as far as training goes. It wasn't bad or anything, it just wasn't what I had planned! This week's schedule called for a two mile run on Monday, a three mile run on Tuesday and a three mile ru... Read more

Week Two of Half Marathon Training

This morning we had our second group training for the Country Music Half/Marathon. I got everything ready last night, running jacket with pockets - my preference so that I don't have to wear a running belt to carry my keys in - pants, shoes, so... Read more

Today was the first group run for half marathon training! We started on our own last week but today - with the whole gang! It was very exciting! I think that there are about 400 of us doing this. I got up at 5:00 a.m. and got ready. When I... Read more

Long Run

Saturday, January 03, 2015      9 comments

Running has been pretty hard for me but I am determined to keep working at it. I run about six miles pretty regularly now but that still seems like a hard thing! Last weekend I did almost seven with the local running club. It was my first tim... Read more

I Used to Live to Eat

Friday, January 02, 2015      7 comments

There is a book out there called Eat to Live. I haven't read it, but I have heard of it. Maybe there is more than one book by this title because it seems like I have been hearing about it for a while. Once I thought that I would read the book... Read more

Today was my first race for the year, a 10K - called the Frostbite. I know that it is not that cold here compared to other places around the country (and world!) but I thought it was mighty cold! I started preparing yesterday by trying to eat ... Read more

Wednesday, December 31, 2014      8 comments

Wow, 2014 was something wasn't it? I really loved this year - it was full of goodness and blessings. No, it wasn't perfect, but there was a lot of awesomeness! One thing that I accomplished - I had a major exam to take. I was so swamped at w... Read more

It has been over a year now since I started to run. It has been a real struggle for me. But I am doing it and I love it! Actually, I should say that I have a love hate relationship with it. I don't love it so much when I am doing it. But I ... Read more

I'm just stopping in for a minute to check in. I've been having some knee issues and then I had a pulled muscle in my groin, but I am still running. Doctor wanted me to cut back drastically on the running for a while and I kind of bargained wi... Read more
