Little Rock Marathon 2017

Winning the Little Rock Marathon last year was an experience that I’ll never forget.  I spent the next 12 months knowing that I wanted to run it again but it was very intimating. My 2016 race win would be a very tough act to follow but I knew I wanted to try. Training for LRM started at the beginning of

The Jacob Wells 3 Bridges Marathon- 2016 Race Recap

In the weeks leading up to the 3 Bridges Marathon I was confident and sure that this was going to be my best marathon to date. I’d had a strong training cycle with my highest and most consistent mileage.  I was running my best workout times and my tune-up races were right where I wanted them to be.  I knew

Little Rock Marathon- 2016!

It’s been three days since the Little Rock Marathon and I’m still feeling the love.  Thank you so much for all the messages and comments after Sunday’s race!  I really appreciate it.  It’s still very hard to believe this happened.  Ten years ago I had my first experience with the Little Rock Marathon.  I went as a spectator and a

The Jacob Wells 3 Bridges Marathon 2015 Race Recap

It’s been a little over a week since my last race of the year and before this one gets lost in the mix of Christmas and New Years I guess I should get up some sort of a recap!  The Jacob Wells 3 Bridges Marathon was my 14th marathon (and 3rd this year).  Typically months of dedicated training goes into

Go! Mile 2015 Race Report

This past weekend I ran in what I can honestly say is my most intimidating race of the year.  Yes, it’s only one mile but it’s ONE MILE!  Was I ready for it? Not quite.  I think I was more ready physically than mentally. The week got off to a rough start with the stomach bug which hit myself and

Another Mother Retreat 2015 Recap!

A little less than a year ago I got an email about the Another Mother Retreat which was scheduled in Little Rock, Arkansas. That’s right, Arkansas! (I actually went back and re-read it.) I assumed they were having retreats in various places all over the country but after talking with a friend I realized they chose one central location- Little

Capital City Classic 10k Race Report and a Change in Plans…

Hello there!  Long time…  I am a few race reports behind- 3 to be exact!  I really want to get caught up so forgive me if this seems a bit condensed!  I thought I would start with my favorite race in Arkansas and go from there. 🙂 The Race: Capital City Classic 10k The Date: Saturday, April 4, 2015 Time:

A Few BIG Annoucements and a Little Blogging Reality

Once again a few weeks have gone by since my last post.  I think of posts all the time that I want to write but life happens and much of the time writing gets pushed to the back burner.  Will I ever be one of those bloggers who posts every day or even a few days a week?  Probably not. 

Fast Firecracker 5K- 2014 edition!

The Fast Firecracker- I love this race.  The course, the atmosphere and the fact that it’s on the 4th of July.  Did I mention it’s also very fast?! Last year was my first time to experience this race and as soon as I crossed the line I knew I would be back!  This race will always be special to me

The RRCA National One Mile Race- go! Mile Race Report- 2014

If you think the expression “digging deep” applies to solely to marathoners I would have to disagree.  I don’t think you can truly appreciate the term until you have raced ALL OUT in a ONE MILE RACE.
