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. So I sneakily snuck […]

20 Miles of Smiles

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 […]

OK, here’s the pics.  I know you just saw them the day after the marathon, so it’s only been 2 weeks, but I have to keep it legit and post on the first of every month.  No one else is going to make me accountable, and knowing you are taking half naked pictures to post […]

I am a brand new inductee into an elite society: Marathon Runner.  I am not an elite member among members, merely a humble finishee, but I got the medal nonetheless.  And I am super duper proud of myself.  I trained well, and I put much thought into my nutrition, outfit, and hairdo (all equally important, […]

Hitting the wall and the friendly treadmill

My training has been going relatively smoothly despite its obtrusiveness into mine and my family’s schedule.  That has without a doubt been the biggest challenge.  I am juggling a part time job, part time school, and raising two toddlers without using day care, grandparents, or babysitters.  I have had days where I leave for the […]

Oh, You Saucy Little GPS!

Today being Saturday is the day for my distance run.  Last week my training plan gave me a break and dropped me from the previous 13 to a mild 8.  It couldn’t have been better timed, as that was “day one” that I started slipping under the weather with something that was not-the-flu.  I was […]
