River Trail 15K: The 2015 Edition!

River Trail 15K: The 2015 Edition!

Better late than never, right?  I actually ran the RT 15k almost two weeks ago.  I am now 9 days away from the Little Rock Marathon so I figure I better get this one posted!  The 15K is a very interesting distance to race.  I only race one a year and it is this one- the River Trail 15k.  It’s typically the second race on the Arkansas Grand Prix schedule.  This race has a sub 60 club (for all men…

Coming Out of a {Mini} Slump

Coming Out of a {Mini} Slump

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 quite meet my expectations I had to switch to plan B.  I know that every race does not go as…

River Trail 15K Race Report (…and the 60 minute club!!)

River Trail 15K Race Report (…and the 60 minute club!!)

Wow! The 15K is a very interesting racing distance.  Love it.  I know it is not the most common of racing distances but if you ever get the chance to run one you should! Don’t let the random distance scare you.   If you recall, last year when I decided to run this race I actually googled the distance of a 15K. Then when I realized it was 9.3 I was like, “duh- 3.1 x 3!!” Not my brightest moment! The…

In sickness and in health… LR training weeks 5 and 6!

In sickness and in health… LR training weeks 5 and 6!

It’s been a while.  Where to begin?! I guess I’ll start with the one person who hasn’t been sick in the past few weeks- thank you Anna! Why can’t we all be more like you! It is hard nearly impossible trying to keep everyone healthy at this time of the year. I do my best to keep things clean and sanitized but for some reason this nasty cough/ cold thing that is going around will not leave us alone!  I’ve…

Overcoming negativity- sometimes I don’t.

Overcoming negativity- sometimes I don’t.

Most of the time I enjoy running.  I love when I can run with friends. I also love the quiet moments I have when I run on my own.  I love the easy run days when I can enjoy the simplicity of it all. And I especially love nailing hard workouts and finishing feeling strong. But every workout is not great and sometimes I do not feel strong.  In fact, I do not feel good at all. I had one…

The River Trail 15K- Race Report

The River Trail 15K- Race Report

If you would have asked me last week what I knew about a 15K I would have had to stop for a second and add up the distance in my head.  I had never even heard of a race this distance- 9.3 miles.  As mentioned in an earlier post, during my run on Monday, one of my friend’s mentioned the River Trail 15K in Little Rock.  I checked out the website and it definitely sounded worth racing.  If nothing else…
