Firecracker Fast 5k 2018

The 5k has always been my favorite racing distance followed closely by the marathon.  I have no idea how many I’ve raced over the years- there’s just been way too many to count.  It was my go-to racing distance in high school when my family would pick a race to run on the weekend. In college I raced mostly 5ks

Saturday’s Double Header: The Moix 5k & Arkansas 10 Miler

What do you do when two races you want to run are on the same day at different times? Why not register for both! On Saturday I ran in the Moix 5k in Conway at 8 am and the Arkansas 10 Miler in Little Rock at 5:00 pm. Race #1- Abi and I arrived in Conway a little after 7

From LA to Vegas… The Speed Project 4.0

Sometimes opportunities present themselves at very unexpected times and if you want it you just need to go for it. This explains how I got caught up running in a relay from Los Angeles to Las Vegas with 9 other strangers! When I first found out that Strava was putting together a team I was very interested but I had

The Spa 10k 2016 and the 2016 RRCA Awards

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and were able to relax and enjoy some quiet time with friends and family. This week has flown by and I’ve enjoyed every bit of downtime we’ve had! It’s actually been peak mileage training week and I cannot think of a better week for it than Thanksgiving. Extra time to run and plenty

Soaring Wings Half Marathon 2016 Race Recap

Not every year is going to be a good running year and that’s the way 2011 was for me.  My sweet Ashton was born that year and I learned a lot about priorities and starting over again.  A couple months after my son was born I suffered a sacral stress fracture from trying to do too much too soon.  My

Arkansas 20k Race Report- 2016

This Saturday marked the 8th consecutive weekend I had a race. Yes, this is now my (unintentional) record but I promise the racing streak ends here! Of all 8 races I probably had the lowest expectations for this one and I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised. For the first time in many months I negative split a race

The Best and Worst of 2014 {…30 races later!}
The Best and Worst of 2014 {…30 races later!}

Yes, it’s time for my annual year of running review.  It’s really hard to sum up an entire year of running in one post but that’s what we do at the end of December, right?  I like to break down the good and the bad in one post.  Don’t worry- not every race performance is mentioned.  That would be a

The Poconos Marathon Race Recap!
The Poconos Marathon Race Recap!

What is harder than running a sub 3 hour marathon?  Trying to do it again.   This distance has intimidated the life out of me since crossing the finish line of the 3 Bridges Marathon nearly five months ago. I had built up “the big sub 3” for so long and when it happened I was elated but after I came
