Go! Mile 2017 Race Report

Well I’ve put off writing this race recap for about as long as I can.  It’s not nearly as much fun going into a race when you’re not prepared and for some reason it’s even more intimidating when it’s a one mile race.  Go! Mile was the 10th race in the Arkansas Grand Prix schedule this year and the only

Go! Mile 2016: RRCA National One Mile Championship

I can honestly say that I’ve considered myself a runner for about as long as I can remember.  As a young girl I would cheer for my dad on the sidelines whenever he raced and I ran my very first 5K around age 6 or 7.  Somehow I always felt like I was “part of the the club.” In eighth

On Saturday I ran in a one mile race.  Yes, you read that correctly- ONE MILE. The last time I raced an all out mile I was 18 and a senior in high school.  That was over 16 years ago.  In college I ran the 1500 a few times but usually the 3000. When I first read about this race
