2014 Goals, Coaching, Life and Marathon Recovery

2014 Goals, Coaching, Life and Marathon Recovery

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.  If only I could stay caught up on the laundry…. A few days ago I found a list my daughter…

The Best AND Worst of 2013- A Year of Racing!

First of all… THANK YOU for the generous comments on Facebook, Daily Mile or in person after my race yesterday.  It means the world to me!!  A goal I set this past January was to break 3 hours in the marathon.  It might have taken me all year but on December 28, 2013 it happened!! Official time- 2:59:19.  (Wow- does it feel weird typing in a 2 instead of a 3!!)  Three Bridges Marathon- 12.28.13 I will definitely be writing…

The BEST and WORST of 2012: A Year of Racing!

It’s been a little while (almost a year to be exact) since I wrote my New Year’s Resolution Post but I decided to go back and check out some of my running related goals when 2012 started. One of my goals was to run a race every month!  This included 5K’s all the way to marathons. I knew this would not be possible if I got injured but as long as I could physically do it, I wanted to run…

It’s Houston, Baby!!!

It’s Houston, Baby!!!

We made it! The past 24 hours have been busy! We had Ashton’s 1 year birthday party last night and then it was time to switch gears and start race packing. This morning I finished all the packing (it takes a while packing up 6 people) and then this afternoon John, Ashton and I flew to Houston. The three big kids are with Nana and Papa. We are so thankful to live by them! The flight from Little Rock to…
