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 […]

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 […]

Seven Hundred

Wow here we are at post SEVEN HUNDRED!  Seriously how did I get here?  It seems like just yesterday I started this little blog to keep my family up to date on the crazy marathon thing I decided to sign up for.  Who knew that I would still be here, 10 marathons later, 700 posts […]

Double Digits

I still remember the very first time I ran 10 miles.  It was such a big deal to me to be in the “double digits” and it was when I knew I really loved running.  Before that day I couldn’t imagine actually running that far and it was a really big obstacle for me to […]
