The Best and Worst of 2014 {…30 races later!}

Yes, it’s time for my annual year of running review.  It’s really hard to sum up an entire year of running in one post but that’s what we do at the end of December, right?  I like to break down the good and the bad in one post.  Don’t worry- not every race performance is mentioned.  That would be a

Why #Run1?

This post was originally published on www.runwithmekids.com Last December I spent the last few days of the year taking a much needed break from running after finishing a big marathon.  My legs and my mind needed a rest but I couldn’t rest long.  The first of the year was calling.  There’s just something about running on January 1st… It’s a

Spa City 10K- Race Report

This is my last race report for the year! It is not the last race I ran but this one sort of fell through the cracks during my racing rampage of November and early December.  Why bother writing it at all?  To tell you the truth, I often go back through my old race reports before running them again.  It

Breakaway 10K 2014- His First 10k!

This is by far the most belated race report I have ever posted.  I thought about summarizing this race recap in another post but it just wouldn’t do it justice.  This was my husband and my oldest son’s first 10k and running 6.2 miles at any age is a big deal and should be acknowledged!

CASA Half Marathon Race Report 2014 – Going out strong!

The last few weeks have been a blur of Christmas parties, activities, work, shopping, baking and RACING!  Ordinarily I consider myself fairly organized but right now I am just taking it day by day.  I would love to write a more lengthy race report but if I do it might never happen.  (If you recall I’m still short two 10K

The St. Jude Half Marathon- 2014 Race Recap

I’ve always loved this quote and on Saturday I rediscovered it. Going into this race I had no idea what to expect. I was full of doubt and uncertainty.  Not only was my plantar bothering me but my right hamstring was also having some kind of issue.  There were a few times I considered not racing but I told myself

Around the House

It’s ironic how so much can change in one short year.  Last December I was in the best racing condition of my life.  I ran my fastest half and was getting ready for my first sub-3 hour marathon.  It’s hard not to compare that to where I am now.  I know I shouldn’t.  I am grateful to be running again

My Birthday, the Great Duck 10K Race Recap AND a BIG Announcement!

Hello! Has it really been 2 weeks?! So much going on and so little time to write about it… Happy December! First, yes, I did have a birthday and I did something I’ve never done before on my birthday- I ran a race! I always make it a point to run on my birthday but believe it or not I
