Running in Dreams vs. Real Life. A juxtaposition.

March 9, 2014

Today’s 18 miler was tough, but I enjoyed it. There were flashes of brilliance to keep me going.  It all started with a dream…. (Wayne’s World Dream sequence noises “Dooddotdurldoo! Durduordudubldo!”) I have got to get this cinnamon into these running snack bags!  I better go meet with the VP of marketing.  They’re down the […]

I have made so many changes since my last post.  I am constantly writing posts in my mind while on a run, that never see the light of laptop.  I didn’t even finish up my big year of forty makeover challenge.  I took the pictures, but in all honesty, I didn’t look any different than […]

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

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. So I sneakily snuck […]

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’m typing this post from the car on my phone after just completing my 20 mile training run. I feel exhilarated. Wiped, but euphoric. There is nothing like running a long distance to clear, organize and focus your mind. These long runs help me straighten out all the tangles I don’t have time to deal […]

Training Lite- How I’m getting faster and the running is easy

I wouldn’t say that I am any kind of an expert on training regimens, although I do have almost 30 years of experience as a runner, and I have spent countless chunks of my life dedicated to studying how best to fuel and treat my body for its best performance.  Nevertheless, I’m not officially certified […]

Well life has certainly picked up some massive speed lately. I have started Fall semester- Organic Chemistry, whee! Added an Honors project, gotten a kindergartener off to his first year of school, and am still stay at home Mom to a three year old. I’m also still working part time, volunteered for the PTA, (got […]
