Much more fun with friends

The marathon relay was an absolute blast! I really enjoyed running my 5-mile portion of the relay but following my teammates on their sections of the course turned out to be hectic, fun and tiring. I ran the second leg of the course and then drove around town maneuvering closed streets and slow-moving stoplights to […]

The Relay is On

My original intention was to run the Mississippi Blues half marathon. I began my training months ago but ran into some injuries that have led me to modify my plans. Since I didn’t feel comfortable running 13.1 miles right now, I’ve have put together a relay team to take on the full marathon this Saturday. […]

Painful feet have kept me off the pavement

It has been way too long since my last post. I really don’t have much of an excuse for not writing besides being extremely busy with numerous publications to layout, design and complete in November and December. But I know that everyone is busy. If I truly wanted to write a post, I’d make the […]

Everyone has a different attitude regarding this topic. Some enjoy their run as time away from work, stress, kids, or just people in general. Others enjoy running as a more social activity. Loving the chance to chat, gossip or just catch up with each other. And others may look forward to running with music – […]

When to buy new running shoes

One important thing to remember when training for a half marathon or any other longer distance race is to wear a good pair of shoes. For those of you who have never run a race over 6 miles, you may think that that old pair of sneakers you have in the closet will work fine. […]

Figuring out the hard way

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that training for a marathon or half-marathon is a lot of work. Then adding a 6-day a week workout routine on top of that, some may say it is too much. I believe that we never really know what our bodies are capable of until we push […]

Check out the new poll question

Had a great weekend of workouts and runs. Today my plan was to run at lunch but that will change to an evening run – that is… after my chest, shoulders and tricep workout. Whew! My body should be nice and worn out for plyometrics (jump training) tomorrow. Please take a look at my new […]

Fair is in town and so is the cooler weather

While I am not a huge fan of going to the State fair as an adult, I am glad when the fair is in town because it usually means cooler weather. Since the production of our upcoming NEXT! Life after high school magazine has been completed, I will now have more time and thought to […]

Work, work, work

No time for much else but work this past week, so no midday runs made it into my schedule. I even put in some work hours this past Saturday and Sunday. While I have been keeping up with my P90X workouts at night, starting today I will be taking a 4 day break from that. […]
