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

The RussVegas Half Marathon Race Report
The RussVegas Half Marathon Race Report

Two weeks ago John and I made our way to Russellville, Arkansas for our first experience with RussVegas. Last year was the inaugural race but at the time I was unable to participate because of my spring marathon.  I had heard great things about it and I was really excited to do it this year. My friend Jackie and I

Capital City Classic 10k Race Report and a Change in Plans…

Hello there!  Long time…  I am a few race reports behind- 3 to be exact!  I really want to get caught up so forgive me if this seems a bit condensed!  I thought I would start with my favorite race in Arkansas and go from there. 🙂 The Race: Capital City Classic 10k The Date: Saturday, April 4, 2015 Time:

The Spring Fling 5k Race Recap and Breaking 19 Minutes… again!
The Spring Fling 5k Race Recap and Breaking 19 Minutes… again!

Coming back from an injury can take a while and it’s hard not to get a little discouraged during the comeback phase.  For the last several months I’ve been comparing myself to where I was last year before the plantar fasciitis started.  My foot has felt good for a while now but my confidence in my ability has not been

Updated Racing Schedule, Spring Break, AND… a 2 Mile Race Report
Updated Racing Schedule, Spring Break, AND… a 2 Mile Race Report

Thank you for the kind comments on my blog, Facebook, and Twitter recently.  As you can imagine it was very hard to drop out of a marathon at the last minute but it is what it is and I’m much better now- physically and emotionally!  I think the hardest part was accepting reality and officially making the decision.  I did

River Trail 15K: The 2015 Edition!

Better late than never, right?  I actually ran the RT 15k almost two weeks ago.  I am now 9 days away from the Little Rock Marathon so I figure I better get this one posted!  The 15K is a very interesting distance to race.  I only race one a year and it is this one- the River Trail 15k.  It’s

RnR New Orleans Half Marathon Race Report!

Last year several of my running friends ran the RnR NOLA Half Marathon and Marathon. When they asked me if I wanted to join them I was very interested because I’d heard about what a great course both races were. Believe it or not, I’d never run a Rock and Roll series yet and I thought this would be a

Spa City 10K- Race Report

This is my last race report for the year! It is not the last race I ran but this one sort of fell through the cracks during my racing rampage of November and early December.  Why bother writing it at all?  To tell you the truth, I often go back through my old race reports before running them again.  It

Breakaway 10K 2014- His First 10k!

This is by far the most belated race report I have ever posted.  I thought about summarizing this race recap in another post but it just wouldn’t do it justice.  This was my husband and my oldest son’s first 10k and running 6.2 miles at any age is a big deal and should be acknowledged!
