The Outer Banks (and a quick 26.2 mile run while I was there)

November 17, 2013

Race Day!  Oh yes, I almost forgot that was why we came.  With mine and my husband’s ever-evolving, hectic schedules, we never get to see each other.  He is fast asleep when I get home, and gone to work before I awake.  We have a wonderful relationship via texts and Instagram.

I have entered the taper. The bizzaro world of training which makes you feel like you aren’t sure if your body can run further than 8 miles. One weekend, you are doing a straight twenty miles, the next, you are only required to do 10, then 8, then??? You’re just supposed to run 26.2 next […]

I’ve had a pretty adventurous week here in the mid stride of my fortieth year. I’ve been intending on getting a tattoo marking the completion of my first marathon (back in March) and waited until a Bestie from the Westie came to visit from California so we could get them together. We had so much […]

Weigh In 7- The Vanity Zone

June 1, 2013

And so it begins…the between race slump. I was determined to evade its grip, and I felt pretty good about keeping it together and setting goals until I signed up for two more marathons and let myself slide knowing there was a safety net on the horizon. My next marathon is in November, and I […]
