Germantown Half Marathon Weekend Recap

Germantown Half Marathon Weekend Recap

The Germantown Half Marathon is a race I’ve heard about for years but for one reason or another I had never registered for it until this year.  The timing for it is usually two weeks after LRM which makes it hard (for me) to race both.  Since I did not run a full marathon this spring I decided to give Germantown a try.  For a relatively small, local race it offers prize money.  You never know who will show up…

White River 4 Mile Classic- Lightening, Thunder and Hills- oh my!

White River 4 Mile Classic- Lightening, Thunder and Hills- oh my!

Last year as I drove myself home after the White River 4 Mile Classic I told myself “Never again!”  I had read about the “challenging” course online but naively went into the race thinking it couldn’t be that hard.  I guess some things you just have to experience for yourself.  Hello hills and hello Arkansas humidity in August… Two variables that are not going anywhere!

Running in the *POURING* Rain

Running in the *POURING* Rain

This morning I had a tempo run scheduled.  As you can tell from the title of of this post the weather was not very cooperative.  It was cold, windy and POURING down rain.  If it were just me, I would have changed up the workout or done it on the treadmill.  But I have a running buddy and I knew she was going to be there ready to run and I didn’t want to let her down.  That is what…
