I’ll tell you what, getting back to running just three times a week is quite an adjustment! It’s the strangest thing, looking back, it felt like I barely ran at all, but I actually ran just a little over twenty miles…really almost as much as I ... Read more

This Sunday, I marked the halfway point in my Madison Mini Marathon training. Six weeks down, six to go! This week was probably one of the most challenging, not so much due to physical effort, but because it really pushed me to re-examine my g... Read more

Another week of training is in the books! I can’t believe that I am almost halfway to the Madison Mini Marathon now. Hmmm…why is it that every week I make the same boring comment about how quickly the time is passing? Maybe I’ll just have to ... Read more

Well..yet another week of half marathon training has passed by in a complete blur. Seriously...where is the time going? This week, I enjoyed (or didn't enjoy, as the case may be) a wide variety of running conditions. It made for an interestin... Read more

It all started with a step. A hesitant step onto the "dreadmill" after experiencing the magic of the Disney Princess half marathon. The first step of a weeknight 5k program, accompanied by a dose of the Biggest Loser. And it all ended with a ste... Read more
