I started writing my race report for the Las Vegas RNR half marathon, but got distracted by life. And when I don't write when I have inspiration, I lose my motivation and train of thought and my potential blogs disappear into oblivion. So, hop... Read more
My pace has been picking up, but I may have over-did it. That and moving my runs around too much to match my sleep schedule. I wasn't getting enough sleep and was letting myself sleep in on Tuesdays and sometimes on Wednesday when I am suppose... Read more
Ok, so here's a warning. This blog may contain semi-graphic descriptions and images. If you are squeamish over the slightest sight of blood, or have a sensitive gag reflex, leave this blog, now. Not that it's really that horrible. Just want ... Read more
So, MapMyFitness was running a promotion where you could sign up for a month of VIP membership for free. I signed up two days after it ended. But I still got it for free because they sent me an e-mail saying, "Last chance to get a free month o... Read more
So, it's been a while.
At least my training is much more regular than my blogging! (although, looking back at my calendar, that could be debatable...)
So, I got my training runs back up to 2.5 miles a week before the 4th of... Read more

But, this morning I woke up at 5:15 and knew I needed to get moving, so I went ... Read more

I woke up at 4:45, again, this morning. I ran to the gym and then back after a 25 minute workout.
Then our daughter woke up early and then was being a typical stubborn, screaming 2 year old.
And in the midst of her tantrum, I took my ... Read more
The last time I ran was Dec 18th. Long enough that I had to look at my workout calendar to find out.
At the time, I figured I would start running again sometime this month or next, or maybe in March. At least I think that was the plan.

Okay, that was a lame alliteration, but let's move on.
Yesterday, I did my 3 miles despite a constant drizzle and 45 degrees. I should remove the "despite" because I rather enjoyed it. Well, except for having a hard time seeing because of... Read more
Got out and ran again, this morning. 2 miles. Sure beat the extra few minutes of restless sleep I would've gotten had I stayed in bed.
Tomorrow I'm planning for 3. Then 4 on Saturday and 5 on Sunday.
15 miles over 5 days? I can tot... Read more
Last week I didn't run at all until Saturday when my parents were in town and I got to run with my dad. You see, my daughter had been sick with a fever, so I had been going to bed late and waking up multiple times a night.
