It’s no secret that I am a numbers freak.  Not only does my job revolve around numbers (CPA!), but I generally just love them when it comes to pretty much anything.  Obviously that includes running.  My running spreadsheet (yes I have a running spreadsheet) has columns of data with sums, sum if formulas and pivot […]

Anniversary Run

I have so many blog posts to catch up on now that the blog appears to be back in order. But first, I have to interrupt those posts because today, August 3rd, is a special day in my little world. Four years ago on August 3rd, I crossed the finish line of my very first […]

Longest Run {Yet}

Today I ran 28 miles, which is the furthest I have ever ran.  For now. It was anything but easy. I have every other Friday off work which is making ultra-training life so much easier with these crazy back to back long runs.  It gives me an extra day to actually have somewhat of a […]

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 […]

Today I crossed the 1,000 mile mark for 2011!  The best part is I did it on one of my favorite runs, in one of my favorite cities and with some of my favorite running friends! After a week of blah running I knew I needed a little soul refresher, so when Alyssa texted me […]

Number Ten

I can’t believe I am actually going to be at the start line of my TENTH marathon this weekend.  I still remember being at the start line of my very first marathon like it was yesterday, it’s hard to believe I have actually finished 9! Each marathon I run I always learn something new, so […]

Three years ago today I wrote my very first post on runner’s rambles.  Today, on my blog’s third birthday, I am posting my 600th! At the time, I had a few friends who had blogs.  They were not about running, but I loved reading them and thought it would be a fun outlet to have […]

Three years ago today… I ran my very first mile of my first marathon training. I had never run more than 3 miles at a time. I had no idea what tempo, BQ, VO2, or really any running terms meant.  I didn’t really know there were running terms. I had no idea if I could […]

28 things

Tomorrow I turn 29.  As I leave behind being a 28 year old, I thought it would be fun to list 28 things I will remember about being 28.  Since my birthday is at the beginning of the year a lot of it will be the same as my 2010 recap, but in a bit […]
