Mt. Magazine Trail Run

On Saturday I made my big trail race debut and I must say Mt. Magazine did not disappoint. I had no idea what I was getting into but that was probably a good thing! This race was such a crazy, hard, fun, and exciting learning experience.  Now that a few days have passed (and it’s getting a little easier to

Toad Suck 10k- the 2017 edition

There wasn’t really any question in my mind whether or not I would run the Toad Suck 10k this year.  It was the 8th race in the Arkansas Grand Prix series so ready or not I was going to do what I could.  Once again my older two joined me so we left for Conway a little after 6 am

Doubling up! A 5k and a 10 Mile Race

It’s been a while since I pulled a double header so I guess I was due. I’ve had a few 10k/ 5k or 5k/5k combos but I’ve never had a 5k/ 10 Miler.  One thing both races had in common was warm weather! Race #1- Mary Jane Moix 5k Location: Conway, AR Time: 8:00 AM This was my first time

Two races back in April… Capital City Classic 10k- 2017 edition AND Chip’s Share it Forward 5k

I am a few race reports behind so I thought I’d catch up before I forgot all together.  I’m not sure how many people even read these but I tend to be a repeat racer so I guess I’m doing this so I can remember for next time. Race: Capital City Classic 10K Date: April 1, 2017 Location: Little Rock,

Staying Focused and Staying POSITIVE- Spring Fling 5k 2017

When it comes to racing I tend to be a creature of habit.  2017 marked my 5th consecutive year of running the Cabot Spring Fling 5k.  Three of these years have been within 2-3 weeks of finishing the Little Rock Marathon but it’s just hard to pass up this one since it’s only 30 minutes from our house and it’s

Chase Race and Paws 2017

Once again Little Rock Marathon recovery has included a 2 mile race! Why would I do this? Well, besides this particular race being in the Arkansas Grand Prix series this is an all around fun race for the whole family- including our new puppy Pepper!  After last year’s surprising 2 mile race success (6 days post marathon) I decided to

Run the Line Half Marathon 2017 Race Recap

Run the Line Half Marathon is the 4th race on the Arkansas Grand Prix schedule and once again this race turned into a girls weekend. Good times!  I rode down to Texarkana with my friends Natalie and Beverly.  There we met up with Amy and Lorri.  We picked up our race packets and then headed to dinner. After dinner we

Valentine’s Day 5k 2017 Race Recap

I started to write this recap over a week ago but got sidetracked so here we go… Better late than never! Race: Valentine’s Day 5k Date: Saturday, February 11, 2017 Location: Arkansas Tech University in Russellville, AR I was a little more prepared this year for this one.  If you recall I ran this race in crazy race mom mode

The One Hour Track Run and the River Trail 15k- Pacing makes all the difference!

My first race of the year got off to a rough start. I had no desire to even write about it but I decided years ago to share all race experiences- good or bad so I guess it’s time to get around to this one! Last year I loved the One Hour Track Run. I had a great race and

Best and the Worst of 2016

At the close of every year I like to do a short wrap-up post of the year in racing. This year will be extra short as we have company coming over and I have a little more baking to do! My Favorite Race: Hands down- the Little Rock Marathon. Most Fun New Distance: I had never run for time so
