Kona with Gatorade Endurance

I ran today. It didn't go as planned. I hate plans for this reason, because often {or more than often} things don't go as planned. Thankfully my coach is also my best friend and she helps keep me on a non-plan plan. It's one of the many reasons I decided to hire her as my coach. She gets me as a runner and as a person. I don't think there has been a week, that she has been my coach, that something either didn't go as planned or I changed the plan. She still loves me. A good coach in my … [Continue reading...]

KV -1423

Hi friends! It’s been awhile since I’ve written here. A long while…. It wasn’t on purpose and then it was on purpose. For the sake of my sanity and simply because there really isn’t enough time to do everything I want to do, something had to give, and blogging was it. What I learned during my […]

RNR Virginia Beach #rnrva

It may sound crazy to run three races in one weekend, but to someone who likes relay races, three times seems completely normal. I’d venture to say that running a 5K, a mile on the sand, and then a half marathon is probably going to be easier than any relay I’ve ever run anyways. I’m […]

RNR VA Beach - Mile On The Sand Pin

Last week I wrapped up my first week of 45 miles since before Boston. To be honest, it could be my first 45 week this year, I didn’t track my mileage during my Boston training, so I’m just assuming I ran that one week. I seem to remember being happy about that number this year, […]

On my way to Chicago for the Rock N Roll Half Marathon my flight was delayed, and delayed and delayed…..literally. We boarded the flight on time, but then after sitting for a bit not moving, they let us deplane if we wanted to. Then they boarded us again and we taxied to the runway only to […]

Mile Posts: Marathon Training On Strava

Hey hey happy Thursday! Shoes: Saucony Kinvara I haven’t talked much about training lately. Since this is a running blog I should probably talk about running every once in a while 😉 Marathon training is in full swing and in 21 days my kids will go back to school and I’ll be able to run […]

What A Turtle Taught Me About Help

Last Friday I headed out for my “easy” run when Eric got home from work. I could have run on the treadmill in the morning but I’m trying to do as much of my training as I can outside on the pavement. I was lost in thought when I saw a turtle up ahead. It […]

Rock N Roll Chicago Half Marathon 2017

This past weekend I ran the Rock N Roll Chicago 1/2 Marathon with my sister. 13.1 miles through the streets of Chicago. 13.1 miles gives you a fair amount of time to think. In this case it was 1 hour and 52 minutes worth of thinking. I feel good. I feel crappy. This is hard. […]
