I wanted to share my splits because I was very proud of the way I ran this race. I was very smart about my pace. This is my 5th race, and I really paced myself well so that I could run fast at the end and finish strong. Two days before the race... Read more

Last summer, I would have never thought I could run 10 miles. 6 about killed me. My friend ran a half marathon, and I thought that there was no way I could ever do that. However, I have slowly but surely been adding longer runs every week, and t... Read more

I feel like I'm really in the running zone. I did 8.5 miles over the weekend, a fast 3 miles on Monday, and two runs today. I did 1.5 miles running the kids to the park (which stunk pushing that jogging stroller!) and then this afternoon I did a... Read more

This morning should have been an awesome run. I had 6 miles on my schedule. It was cool and cloudy and a little misty. My first couple of miles I felt great, but around mile 4, I felt really nauseous, so I walked a little bit. I forced myself to... Read more

Today I went to an indoor water park with my husband and two boys. We were there a LONG time. As I was chasing the kids through the pool, we were all laughing. I thought to myself - I haven't had an anxious or stressed out thought since we got t... Read more
First 10K (actually longer)- mixed emotions

Well, it went o.k. I sent my Garmin to 10K and when it beeped I still had 3/4 of a mile left. People said the course was way long, like 6.8 instead of 6.2 and the times reflected that. I kept going; it was very hot, sunny, and almost no shade. I... Read more

I went out for an easy run this morning just to get a short run in before my first 10K tomorrow since I haven't run since Wednesday. I got a cramp at 2 miles, so now I am nervous. I never get cramps anymore. The race doesn't start until 9 a.m. ... Read more

Things I'm proud of: Working out consistently at least 5 times a week for over a year, maybe more. My weight is hovering around 130 instead of 136, which used to be my problem weight. Now, if I can just get it down to 125. I have run 6 mi... Read more

I had my best 3 mile run since September tonight. I did 3 miles in 26:16. I think I could have gone faster if I'd done a slow warm up first then measured the 3 miles. I felt like I was going to throw up the last half mile, and actually stopped t... Read more
