We’ve got history- The Little Rock Marathon

Just 10 days to go until the Little Rock Marathon and I am getting EXCITED!! It’s difficult for me to put into words what this race means to me.  I should point out that it has nothing to do with the course.  In fact, the course itself is fairly challenging.  It is by no means an “easy” marathon.  The Little

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

Heart & Sole Half Marathon- Race Report {the one with a shiny new PR!}

What a day! This morning’s race was the result of many answered prayers and countless hours of hard work and training.  I could not have done it without the support of my friends and family.  The Heart & Sole Half Marathon has been on my racing calendar all year long.  I knew this would be my only half marathon for

An Unoffical Track Half Marathon- aka A LOT OF LAPS!!

This morning I ran in my own little half marathon….  Around the track.  Yeah, it was A LOT of laps.  Thanks to my Garmin at least I did not have to count them!  Once again I veered off a little from my NYC Marathon training to do a half marathon pace run.  First of all, let me say that I

5 Weeks of Half Marathons: By the Numbers

3 Half Marathons in 5 Weeks?  Why not?! Well, I could probably list several reason why not but we made it work and I have my husband to thank 100% for that! If it were not for him I would not be able to do ANY of this.  I know its been a little much so I will be toning

Midsouth Championship Half Marathon: Race Report

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again… Last Saturday I ran a not so good race.  I finished feeling defeated, disappointed and to be honest I was angry.  Angry at myself.  I know I PR’d by a few seconds but I did not run a good race mentally or physically.  I knew I could do better.  I made

Half Marathon. Check!

Usually there is nothing memorable or special about the average workout. Sometimes I feel like I’m just clocking in more miles towards my training goal. Every once in a while there is a workout that stands out among the others. That was the case this morning. I have a feeling I will always remember this one. It was NOT my
