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

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,

The Spa 10k 2016 and the 2016 RRCA Awards

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and were able to relax and enjoy some quiet time with friends and family. This week has flown by and I’ve enjoyed every bit of downtime we’ve had! It’s actually been peak mileage training week and I cannot think of a better week for it than Thanksgiving. Extra time to run and plenty

The Breakaway 10k and Breaking 38!!

I remember a time when the 10k was my most dreaded racing distance.  I ran two of them my senior year of high school and vowed never again!  I knew nothing about 10k pacing and my strategy was basically to go out like I was running a 5k and hold on.  Obviously this is a terrible race plan and makes

Catching up on a few races…

October has been a big month of training with my usual amount racing too!  Right now I’m in a pretty solid training groove hitting between 60-70 miles a week and feeling good with a little more than 7 weeks to go until the 3 Bridges Marathon. My coach and I have had to get a little creative with some of

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!

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

Toad Suck 10K- 2014 Race Report!

On Saturday I ran in the Toad Suck 10k as part of the Grand Prix series.  This race is held every May during the Toad Suck Daze festival in Conway, Arkansas.  There are actually two races- the 5 and 10K with each race having over 500 runners.  I ran the 5K in 2010 and 2012 and last year was my

Not another half marathon! (As well as thoughts on racing, training and more…)
Not another half marathon! (As well as thoughts on racing, training and more…)

Sometimes we need a break.  Maybe not from running all together but from racing a certain distance.  Right now me and the half marathon distance are not on the best of terms.  In the span of 6 weeks I raced in three half marathons.  Did I overdo it?  Yes. Do I need a break?  Yes. Little Rock Half Marathon- 3/2/14-
