The temperature was above 40 on Saturday morning, finally, this meant that I could run my 8 mile long run outside instead of on the treadmill. It was exhilarating. I loved every minute of it. The fresh air, the cool breeze, the friendly waves ... Read more
1/2 training underway
Monday, January 11, 2010      2 comments

16 weeks until the 1/2. Official training began today. I started taking an extended lunch 3 days a week, which means working a little later, but I was doing that already, and it allows for a mid-day trip to the gym for my run. This seems to b... Read more

A cold run
Saturday, October 17, 2009      1 comments

I hate the cold. No, hate doesn't quite describe it.... I despise, loath & dread the cold. My version of hell would be a lake of ice not a lake of fire.... My body doesn't tolerate the cold well either. My core gets chilled, like if I just wan... Read more

Sept 19th, the day before my 39th birthday, I ran my best 10k and it was fantastic. It was absolutely freezing cold, it was only 54 degrees when the race started, and we shivered for an hour at the starting line prior to that. By the time the... Read more

I'm really excited that the race is tomorrow. The news & radio channels have been amping it up, which only leads to the excitement I'm feeling. I guess the USAF Marathon is a pretty big deal around here. :) I pray that I have a restful nights ... Read more

Sabotage
Saturday, August 29, 2009      5 comments

I feel like my training for my 10K is being sabotaged. I am generally a very healthy person. I don't get sick very often, but for the last two months, that's all I've been. I've had stomach issues, infections, flu's, and now a fever in the mid... Read more
