Catching up on a few races…

October has been a big month of training with my usual amount racing too!  Right now I’m in a pretty solid training groove hitting between 60-70 miles a week and feeling good with a little more than 7 weeks to go until the 3 Bridges Marathon. My coach and I have had to get a little creative with some of

Run, Walk, and Boom 5k

My family has a history of running and racing together so it’s no surprise that we usually find a local race whenever we all get together. A 5k in a strange city? Sounds great!  We found the Run, Walk, and Boom 5k several months ago when we had our trip dates set but I waited until about two weeks before

Rock Run 8k- 2016 edition

The 8k is an interesting distance to race. Maybe one of these years I’ll learn to race it right! This was my second year to run the Rock Run 8k (4.97 miles) and while I did set a “PR” by a whopping 6 seconds I know I have some work to do. Pre-Race Friday night Anna had a softball game

Marathon Recovery and the Most Surprising Race of All!

The week after a marathon is always full of many emotions for me.  My mind likes to replay every mile of the race and I tend to analyze everything.  The entire Little Rock Marathon experience was amazing in every way and I celebrated it to the fullest.  I am never one to jump back into running right away after a

Little Rock Marathon- 2016!

It’s been three days since the Little Rock Marathon and I’m still feeling the love.  Thank you so much for all the messages and comments after Sunday’s race!  I really appreciate it.  It’s still very hard to believe this happened.  Ten years ago I had my first experience with the Little Rock Marathon.  I went as a spectator and a

The Valentine’s Day 5k & One Tough Long Run

After months of racing longer distances jumping into a 5k can be a little intimidating. I didn’t know exactly what to expect on Saturday in Russellville but I definitely went into it with a “no pressure” attitude. J was out of town until that evening so it was just me… and all the kids. Any sort of racing strategy was

The Jacob Wells 3 Bridges Marathon 2015 Race Recap

It’s been a little over a week since my last race of the year and before this one gets lost in the mix of Christmas and New Years I guess I should get up some sort of a recap!  The Jacob Wells 3 Bridges Marathon was my 14th marathon (and 3rd this year).  Typically months of dedicated training goes into

The Chicago Marathon Race Recap

The Chicago Marathon is truly one of a kind.  To sum it up in a few words- I LOVED this race!  The crowds, the course, the atmosphere- it is the full package!  I would definitely recommend it as a must run marathon. Marathon race reports are always the hardest to write because one small recap doesn’t seem to do it

The Heart & Sole Half Marathon 2015 Race Recap

This is it… Only five more days until the big race!  I’m working up a post specifically about my Chicago training cycle and hopefully I’ll have it finished in the next day or so. I’ve had some time to reflect on the past few months and what I’ve learned during this process.  I can’t believe it’s almost here! As you

Toad Suck 10K Race Report- Getting Back to Business!

I guess it’s about time I get around to writing my Toad Suck 10k race recap! This race is 8th in the Arkansas Grand Prix series (and my 5th) for the year.  The next one is this Saturday so I better get moving! Race: Toad Suck 10k Date: Saturday, May 2, 2015 Location: Conway, Arkansas This was my fifth year
