Whirlwind

Way Too Cool was just the start of a whirlwind month of running.  I didn’t realize at the time how jam packed the 4 weeks following Cool were going to be because I pretty much only thought about the weekend that was immediately coming up.   Now that I am sitting here on my first weekend […]

Focus

As a person who has always had a big next goal, I am constantly asked the question “what’s next?” or “what are you training for?”  While I do have races on the calendar, the spot on my fridge that typically holds a training plan has been happily empty since December. Running without a training plan […]

Instincts

It’s now been a little over 2 weeks since my drop at North Face.  In those 16 days there have been moments of regret, moments where I wondered if I really did the right thing, and mostly moments where I just had to have faith and not let myself consider anything other than the thought that […]

Rest Days

Let’s talk about not running for a minute.  Instead, let’s talk about rest!  A very important part of running. Rest days are kind of a personal thing for runners, just like training plans.  Everyone is different and different things work for different people.  What some people consider “rest” others consider exercise.  When one person needs three […]

What It’s About

Happy National Running Day! This morning I headed out into the cool morning air to meet up with my friends for a short run on one of our favorite trails.  We have done this routine so many times over the last couple years and I still look forward to every single time we meet.  This […]

A Letter To My Legs

Dear leggies, I know I have been asking a lot of you lately.  I have been very demanding and making you do things you have never done before.  Although you have been cranky a couple of times, a majority of the time, you stay strong and exceed my expectations. I know it’s hard sometimes and […]

Run for Sherry

I am one of those people that tries to not think about all the bad things and people that are out there.  I am not naive about it, I know it exists, that bad things happen and I am cautious and safe.  I just try not to dwell on the bad and focus on the […]

The Morning

  It might shock you with all the morning running that I do, but I have a confession…  I am not a morning person.  Not at all.  No matter how hard I try to be, it is pretty difficult to get out of bed every morning.  Every morning I battle my alarms (because I always […]

Vegas Shenanigans, Day 2

Continuing from where we left off. Page had convinced me to sign up for a Santa 5k on Saturday morning.  I knew little about the event but it sounded fun, plus I heard we got Santa suits with our race registration.    This was definitely a true story. We woke up, crawled out of bed into […]

Vegas Shenanigans, Day 1

Hello from Vegas! I have been meaning to blog, really I have, but this trip has just been so busy so far!  Since I am trying to keep myself awake as late as possible tonight (in order to sleep in tomorrow), a blog post is the good way to do it. So, what have I […]
