This weekend I ran the Fox Cities Half Marathon as my final long run/preparation for the Wine & Dine Half Marathon. I was slated for a 14 mile training run anyway, so doing the run as part of an organized event with course support, shirts, meda... Read more

Catching up on this week's blogging :) This one is from Thursday night. I actually combined biking and running into a workout, just to do something a bit different and challenging. It was a fun (hilarious in parts) experience, and definit... Read more

Big milestone Wednesday first bike ride since college! It felt amazing, fast, exhilarating, and just purely awesome, even though I was actually bumping along at a whopping 9.0 MPH. Hehe. I can feel that my bike and I have many go... Read more

Ironman inspired me, what can I say...yesterday, Bruce and I had a "date" in our garage, where we fixed up my old college bike. We dusted off the cobwebs (which it really had, how sad is that) and put it in working order. I purchased a helmet ... Read more

This blog is a fairly emotional one for me, as it covers my experience of the 10th anniversary of 9/11, as well as spectating Ironman Wisconsin. It may not seem at face value that these two things can really be tied together, but somehow I feel... Read more

Okay, so I'm a day or two behind in blogging, as usual, so this is from yesterday's training run. I had a quick 3.31 mile spin around the neighborhood, and it was hot, hot, hot out there! Grateful for the warmth and sunshine, though, since in ... Read more

On Thursday night, I wrestled with a running-related problem that I haven't really seen since I last ran on the treadmill, a few months ago - BOREDOM! Seriously?! Does this ever happen to you? Wonder if this was just a one-time fleeting thing... Read more

Pretty typical training run (although with extra good weather) in the midst of a very stressful sort of week! Not only was there a LOT LOT LOT of work, but also we got smacked with a *gulp* $3000 car repair bill! NOT fun, right?! In better ne... Read more

Yesterday, I was treated to some BEAUTIFUL early fall-like weather, so had to take the opportunity to get out for my first training run of the week: 7.1 miles around town...a completely scenic tour including a couple of parks, downtown, the loca... Read more

Monday, September 05, 2011      3 comments

Due to a severe lack of training this week, due in part to lingering illness (which thankfully is better by now) and complete overload at work that had me working after hours three nights during this work week, I only have one particularly notew... Read more

Very miscellaneous blog from Sunday. I squeezed in a training run of about 10k, and it went better than Saturday's, although still pretty tiring and labored. I'm still fighting the ear infection, unfortunately, even though I had almost convinc... Read more

I'm a couple of days behind on blogging, so this entry is for Saturday. I struggled through a very tiring, overheated training run (that ended up being a walk) but in better news, I finally fit into a running skirt that's basically been too tig... Read more

Last night, I was able to get out for my first training run since Madison Mini Marathon. I'm happy to report that it was a success! I think I'm just about over my illness *knock on wood* and my post-race "recovery" is feeling very much like a ... Read more

I hoped to start training for W&D last night, but as luck would have it, my ear infection is still keeping me out of the running (literally). So I took another easy rest day yesterday (other than some Wii workouts...), continued to contemplate ... Read more

I'm still up on cloud nine after the Madison Mini Marathon, but it's time to shift gears and think about my next event, the Wine & Dine Half Marathon (at Disney World!!) in six weeks. Last night, I was due for my first post-Madison Mini trainin... Read more
