When it comes to racing I tend to be a creature of habit. 2017 marked my 5th consecutive year of running the Cabot Spring Fling 5k. Three of these years have been within 2-3 weeks of finishing the Little Rock Marathon but it’s just hard to pass up this one since it’s only 30 minutes from our house and it’s
Once again Little Rock Marathon recovery has included a 2 mile race! Why would I do this? Well, besides this particular race being in the Arkansas Grand Prix series this is an all around fun race for the whole family- including our new puppy Pepper! After last year’s surprising 2 mile race success (6 days post marathon) I decided to
It’s been one week since the San Francisco Marathon and wouldn’t you know- I’ve already run another race since then… I’m sure this comes as no surprise. The Batesville 4 Mile Classic was the 12th race on the Arkansas Grand Prix series and it’s been on my running calendar all year. This is my first year attempting Iron Runner (running

I’m back! It’s been a while since my last post and I’m not sure why. I just haven’t been very motivated to write. I’ve been back in training mode for two weeks or so now. As I mentioned in an earlier post my right foot was giving me some grief so I took some time off so it could heal.
Happy 2014… one week later!! 🙂 I had very good intentions of promptly posting some updated 2014 goals but obviously never got around to it! My older three started back to school yesterday so life is slowly starting to get back to normal. The Christmas decorations are finally put away and at one point we had the house entirely cleaned.
Happy Thanksgiving week!! I’m enjoying a week home with all the kiddos and a more relaxed schedule. Let’s just say we had quite a few Thanksgiving/ Pilgrim & Native American events last week. I’m very thankful for a quiet week home because I know the next few weeks leading up to Christmas are going to be busy! Hangin with
