Capital City Classic 10K- Race Report

Well here we are over a week out after the Capital City 10k and I guess it’s about time I get this race recap written. I’ve actually run another race since this one- the Doc Rock and Run Half Marathon in Jonesboro, Arkansas and you better believe I will be writing about that one too.  I’ll give you a hint-it’s

Capital City Classic 10K Race Report- {Officially} Breaking the 40 minute mark!

I went into this race with a very specific goal- to break 40 minutes.  I ran in this race two years ago (actually just a few  days before I got pregnant with Ashton). At that time I my goal was to beat my 10K PR- one I had set when I was 17 years old- 41:42.  I finished in 41:43

Houston, we have a PROBLEM….

Well, I have a bit of an annoying race problem. As you know, I had planned on registering for the Houston Marathon. The race is January 14, 2012. (Perfect-timing for my first marathon post stress fracture.) It is a fast course which will be helpful in my quest to re-qualify for Boston. That weekend is also a big deal because
