Germantown Half Marathon Weekend Recap
Germantown Half Marathon Weekend Recap

The Germantown Half Marathon is a race I’ve heard about for years but for one reason or another I had never registered for it until this year.  The timing for it is usually two weeks after LRM which makes it hard (for me) to race both.  Since I did not run a full marathon this spring I decided to give

So what do you do when your marathon is cancelled?  As I mentioned in my last post– you register for some more races!  Besides finding a replacement marathon I also decided to throw in a half marathon as a tune-up race since it worked out timing -wise.  Last year was the first time I’d ever heard of this race but

Runners are a very determined group of people.  Sometimes to a fault.  When we have a race in our mind it is hard to deviate from the plan.  I knew before my race that I wasn’t feeling good but I wasn’t about to miss the only half marathon on my schedule all fall.  I didn’t know exactly what was wrong

We’ve got history- The Little Rock Marathon
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

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
