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 […]

10 reasons why you should not go out and run

1. I am tired, I didn’t sleep enough last night.  Of course you shouldn’t run if you are tired.  The epidemic of runners asleep at the shoe should alarm you enough to avoid this dangerous practice.  Besides, if you run, you’ll be even more tired, and might fall asleep too easily tonight, meaning you’ll be […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
