2012 in Pictures

When looking back on 2012, this year wasn’t about the miles I ran, the goals I accomplished, or the finish lines I crossed.  2012 to me was about where I got to run and who I got to run with.  I don’t think I would be able to come close to doing the year justice […]

I think in all years prior to 2012, August was probably my least favorite month of the year.  Being an avid summer-hater in the past, August was always just hot and dry, and I was always counting down the days until we were closer to fall. But this year it’s a very different story.  I […]

July was a transition month for me, both in running, and for lack of a better word, in life.  First off, July was about getting back in the swing of running and training after a slow May and June.  I started gaining my confidence again with running, took some risks and stopped being as scared as […]

June… and I Guess May

Apparently I let May pass without a recap. GASP!  I think that was a first. It was probably because it wasn’t my favorite month in the world, especially when it started.  But now that I can look back on it, I realize it was still a good month running aside and there were some positive […]

Remember how close I was to a new monthly mileage high in January? Remember how I really considered going on a 5 mile run just to beat that old high by a fraction? Remember how I said that I decided not to because I had a feeling February was going to be a good month?  […]

The First Mile

It was February 9th, 2008. I woke up with a nervous stomach, not sure what to expect from this adventure I was about to embark upon, not sure if I even wanted to go at all.  It is always easier to talk about doing something, but to actually commit to doing something is a whole […]

So close! January was only 4.7 miles off my highest mileage month ever (last March) coming in at 271.4 miles! While I definitely considered going out on that second run tonight to get me over into the new monthly high, I just decided that I would rather save those 5 miles for February.  I have […]

2012 Race Schedule, Part 1

This might be a little late to the game since I have already run 3 races this year, but I have been meaning to post my race schedule (that I know of) for at least the first half of 2012.  After that, who knows what will happen. So here it is, what is on my […]
