It Starts With a Two

Long runs are 100% what made me fall in love with running.  All those years that I spent hating to run, I had just never gone far enough!  Of course then, one of the things I loved the most about training for AR50 was that I got to do two long runs in a row!  […]

Marathon Eve?

Tomorrow I will run my 13th marathon – the Napa Valley Marathon! I am really excited for this race.  This is one of our more local races that I have always wanted to run, but it sadly has never fit in to my schedule very well.  When I decided to train for AR50 and made […]

Paces Galore!

I have received some comments and emails lately asking about the different paces I use during training and I thought it deserved a post on it’s own!  I was even more sure of this when I was trying to explain to a coworker the other day about my training plan and pretty much just ended […]

Saturday vs. Sunday

When I first started running and through my first few marathon training cycles I always did my long runs on Saturday.  It worked best for me and I liked the way it synched with my weekends.  However, when I started upping my mileage (running both days on the weekend) and adding group workouts to my […]
