Another Mother Retreat 2015 Recap!
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.

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

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.

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

In January my main marathon goal for the year was to break 3:20.  I didn’t know when I would do it but I knew I had three chances this year and I was going to do my best to accomplish that goal.  I felt fairly confident that this was a realistic goal for me based on my times in other

Tapering & Training

Exactly one week from today I am running in my 4th marathon.  That means this week is my least favorite week of all… The final taper week.  This is typically the week that I question my training, my ability, my racing strategy and my sweet tooth. (For some reason, eating any and all desserts is not as fun when you’re

My Little Rock Marathon Training (so far)… and other random thoughts

Well, this marks my first and last “hard” week of training for the Little Rock Marathon.  Houston and Little Rock are 7 weeks apart and I am right in the middle of them now. I have only ever raced two other marathons before Houston and they were separated by ten years so having two planned 7 weeks apart is a
