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 […]

Hello Fall! Every runner’s favorite time of year.  The sun is still shining, the pollen is down, the runs are cooler, the times are faster, and it’s the time of year where being outside makes you feel great to be alive.  I used to be a Summer girl for the majority of my life, but […]

Some of you (a very few) may remember that one of my first posts was about training my new puppy, Oliver the Great, to run. You may also have noticed, that there haven’t been any more successful posts about running with Oliver.  He got a few brief mentions; at the end of this post for eating […]

The Tobacco Road Marathon!

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, […]

Weigh-in #3!

March 2, 2013

You might see here that my photos have a different artistic approach this month than in previous weigh-in shoots.  I had to switch photographers at the last moment due to pressing deadlines.  Instead of my usual Media Arts/Photography major husband and our pretty good digital camera, I was lucky enough to land a new up […]
