San Francisco Marathon Training Cycle Details

San Francisco Marathon Training Cycle Details

This is it.  Just a couple more days until I head to San Francisco to put months of training into one race!  I know I’ve done my best and I’m anxious to put it to the test Sunday morning.  I think no matter how long I’ve been running I am constantly learning about the sport. This summer I’ve experienced and learned more than I ever imagined I would preparing for the San Francisco Marathon. Every training cycle is different and…

A vacation, a race and a trip to the emergency room…

Has it really been over two weeks since my last post?! It seems like most of our summer activities have been crammed into the last few weeks and we are officially one week away from the first day of school for three of my little people. I cannot believe that in just a few days we will be back to earlier bedtimes, making lunches, and functioning on a much more structured schedule.  I’ve really enjoyed the lazy days of summer. …

Summer Runnin: Things I’m Lovin!

Summer Runnin: Things I’m Lovin!

Hello Summer Time!

This picture makes me smile! LOVE the awkward “Ancient Greek” pose! I thought I would follow up my running in the heat and humidity post…

Surviving the HEAT without skipping a beat…

Yes, it’s July and the best place to be is inside in the air conditioning. You have two options: run inside on a treadmill OR outside where it is blazing. What are you going to do? Personally, I usually prefer to run outside. In the summer months I run early and try to stay up on my fluids to avoid dehydration. On Saturday I went 7 miles with a friend and we planned a water break a little over halfway…

Summer is here…

Summer is here…

School’s out for the summer and everyone’s home! I honestly love this time of year. I love when we’re all together and I don’t have to make sure lunches are packed, homework is done and we leave the house at a certain time to get to school. They are still not to the age where they sleep in. That would be nice but I think I’m at least 5 or 6 years away from that. My sweet little Ashton likes…
