The RussVegas Half Marathon Race Report

The RussVegas Half Marathon Race Report

Two weeks ago John and I made our way to Russellville, Arkansas for our first experience with RussVegas. Last year was the inaugural race but at the time I was unable to participate because of my spring marathon.  I had heard great things about it and I was really excited to do it this year. My friend Jackie and I actually registered in the fall, several months before the race (which is really early for me) to make sure we…

My friend Jackie joined…

Another Mother Retreat 2015 Recap!

How could I not join in on the fun?! If you’ve never read Run like a Mother by Sarah…

Welcome!

Welcome!

As you can see there have been some changes to the Arkansas Runner Mom site.  I’m very excited about the new look as well as the added content which highlights some of the areas I am most passionate about including running with kids, racing in Arkansas, and coaching runners.  A special thanks to a group of MIS students in my husband’s class who worked hard to develop this site.  Please bear with me as it may take a few weeks…
