Coming Back after Plantar Fasciitis

It’s MONDAY!! What a chilly weekend it was too.  My husband, my two oldest children and myself all ran in a 10K on Saturday and I think it was my coldest race to date! Race report on that one coming soon… I decided I was finally ready to write my plantar fasciitis comeback post… If you’ve been following my running

Midsouth Half Marathon Championship- Race Report

On Saturday I ran in my first half marathon since this past spring before my plantar fasciitis got way out of control.  I still have a ways to go until I am back at the race times I was running earlier in the year but I am going to celebrate the progress I’ve made the last few months. In my

Micah Rine 5K Race Report 2014

Is this really the 4th year in a row I’ve raced this?  I’m a creature of habit when it comes to races… I really do love this course and hope to continue doing this race with the kids.  (All proceeds benefit the wellness program/ future girls weight room at their school.)  It was not my fastest time on this course

Will I ever learn?? Lessons from the Arkansas 20K (Race Report)

I’m guilty. Once again I learned (the hard way) that good intentions and wishful thinking do not necessarily make an idea a good idea.  When it comes to running these days I know what I need to do but it’s not want I want to do.  Instead of a good angel/ devil on my shoulders I have a smart, responsible

Sometimes you’ve got to take the bad with the good…

We were on a Break!!

It’s been too long…. I’ve been so strong.  So sane.  I’ve been so good about cross training.  But I’m ready to get back to running.  I don’t want to be on this break anymore! Yes, I did go on a brief leave of absence from blogging.  I just couldn’t muster up the strength to talk about my cross-over into the

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

Injuries- Preventing and Dealing with them in a nutshell!

I think it’s pretty realistic to say that as runners we fall into one of these categories at all times: 1. Trying to prevent injury2. Recovering/ coming back after an injury3. Currently dealing with an injury If you claim to never deal with any of these phases then you are either not a regular runner or you are probably not
