Why I'd rather run in the morning
Thursday, August 26, 2010      0 comments

There are lots of reasons why I'd rather run in the morning, not the least of which is the fact that a run is just a great way to start the day. Other things are the temperature and the fact that my kids are still asleep. I was reminded of just ... Read more
Prep for Half Marathon

Hi SPers! My 10k a couple of weeks ago was such fun - way more fun than a 5k. I felt like I had time to really enjoy it.... and I finished in 59:22. I was hoping for under an hour and there it was. Perfect weather, flat course, lots of encourage... Read more
Hilly 5k shocker!
Saturday, June 26, 2010      1 comments

So it turns out that even though I really dragged UP the hills ... and even walked a few times... those downhills really helped my time! Official time was 28:30, and a new PR. :) My friend PRd as well and now we are wishing we had dug a lit... Read more
Tomorrow's very hilly 5k
Friday, June 25, 2010      1 comments

My friend and I waffled a little bit before signing up for a 5k tomorrow because it is VERY hilly. I have done very little hill training and both 5ks I have run in have been mostly flat. Rather than worry about times, though, we are going to tre... Read more
5k PR! :)

A shout-out to Zorbs13 who commented that I could probably run a sub 30 5k (rather than my goal of sub 31). I did it!! It was hot, and I definitely felt like my head might explode at the end but I did it!! My Garmin 305 said 29:29, and the offic... Read more
5k goals part 2
Monday, June 07, 2010      0 comments

I skipped out on my friend's Sunday night run (she wanted to do a timed 5k, I wanted to do an easy 2 or so since I had run longish Saturday) and ran this morning. Nice breeze, beautiful morning. I ran 3.1 about 30 seconds slower than I did on Sa... Read more
Goals for 5k
Saturday, June 05, 2010      3 comments

I have my next (second!) 5k coming up on 6/12. The first one was brutally hot and I was glad to have survived the heat, and I ran with a friend and stayed on pace with her. We are both running in this one, but I plan to run at my own pace and ho... Read more
Ice, ice, baby
Friday, May 28, 2010      5 comments

I am completely dependent on ice. Yesterday I ran and didn't have time to ice before work. I think the school nurse (where I work) thinks I am little nutty but I went in there for ice as soon as I got to work. It makes an amazing difference in m... Read more

We Are the Decisive Element I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make ... Read more
Garmin 305
Wednesday, May 12, 2010      1 comments

I got a Garmin 305 for Mother's Day - whoo-hoo! I am really excited about it. It is ginormous but the newer, smaller version was more than 100 dollars more and didn't seem to do much more except look better. This morning I ran with it for t... Read more
Reflections on first 5K
Saturday, May 01, 2010      4 comments

First of all, no race should take place in May at 11 am!! The heat and humidity were BRUTAL! Other than that, I am pleased that we made it through our first race and can't wait for another (preferably in less oppressive heat). My friend and... Read more
5k on Saturday!
Wednesday, April 28, 2010      2 comments

As the day approaches for the 5k, we've hit a couple of glitches. My friend and I are scrambling for child care and are SO thankful for our church family, since both of our husbands are working on Saturday. People are really stepping up and thes... Read more

We are finally back at school/work after more than two weeks out. We probably shouldn't even be going today since some of the roads are still questionable, but I'm glad to be back in civiliation. I did love hibernating for two weeks, but it is N... Read more
30 day shred update
Friday, January 29, 2010      2 comments

So, I have been doing the 30 day shred, but realized early on that due to the high impact of the cardio, my knees can only hack 4 days a week rather than 5. I am still planning to continue but have adjusted my finish goal to when I'll have 30 do... Read more
Praying for Haiti, counting my blessings
Wednesday, January 13, 2010      4 comments

I have a friend who is on a mission/work trip to Haiti right now. He is safe although his plans to come home may be altered. I praise God for his safety and I am just completely overwhelmed by the devastation of this earthquake. Haiti is already... Read more
