Capital City Classic 10K- Race Report
Capital City Classic 10K- Race Report

Well here we are over a week out after the Capital City 10k and I guess it’s about time I get this race recap written. I’ve actually run another race since this one- the Doc Rock and Run Half Marathon in Jonesboro, Arkansas and you better believe I will be writing about that one too.  I’ll give you a hint-it’s

Penguin 10K- Race Report

On Thursday night one of my running clients mentioned she wanted to add on a last minute 10K to her schedule since it fit in well with her training plan.  Since I am all about throwing in races in training it actually got me thinking that maybe this wouldn’t be a bad idea for me either.  The race was about

Toad Suck Daze 10K- Race Recap

With marathon season officially behind me (for now) I have jumped head first into my 5 and 10K season.   I’ll be honest- sometimes just thinking about running a 5 or 10K makes me tired.  They are just so short and way too fast! But I know they make me a better runner so I continue to sign up for them.

Yesterday I ran in a local race- the Stride To Prevent Suicide 10K.  I have run in this 5K twice before but this was the first time the 10K was offered so I decided to go for it.  I didn’t have very high expectations for my time since this was just 12 days since Boston and I have only put

Yesterday was my third time to run in the Capital City Classic 10K.  If you live in central Arkansas and love to race this is one you definitely want to keep on your racing calendar.  The weather has been great every time I’ve run it and the course is perfect. Last year my big goal was to break 40 minutes

Despite my bittersweet PR last weekend, I spent most of this week feeling a bit out of sorts in my running world.  I think I just needed to process the race and it took me a while.  For months I had built up a certain finish time and race strategy in my mind and when the weather and course didn’t

80 Miles?? And some Goals for 2013!

It’s been a great first week of a brand new year.  2013- I think I’m really going to like you! my BIGGEST blessings! I am still figuring out some new goals for 2013.  I am keeping a lot of my old ones but I have a few new things in mind for the new year. Here are a few non-running

The Escalon 10k- the one I set a course record?!
The Escalon 10k- the one I set a course record?!

It’s been a crazy week. We’ve been on vacation in California and you know me- of course I had to find a nearby race because vacation races are the best! No pressure, new race environment and a fun trip memory. So months ago when we set our trip dates I found a 10k just 15 minutes from our hotel. After

I went into this race with a very specific goal- to break 40 minutes.  I ran in this race two years ago (actually just a few  days before I got pregnant with Ashton). At that time I my goal was to beat my 10K PR- one I had set when I was 17 years old- 41:42.  I finished in 41:43

Well, I have not posted much recently and I must admit I just haven’t been in the mood.  I’ve been busy, I’ve had family in town (my sister recently had a baby!!) and I just haven’t felt inspired to write much.  I recently passed the one year anniversary (March 31, 2011) of my stress fracture and I must say that
