Before every race I run I look up the past years results. I look who came in first with what time. I look at all the girls in my age group and what place I would come in if I ran close to what my PR already is at that distance. I’m a race geek. […]

I know this race happened over two months ago BUT I just got my finishers paper in the mail so I was reminded of it. I also happened upon another runner moms blog the other day where she was talking about Cherry Blossom and my competitive spirit was unleashed. Reason number 5230948203948 why I love […]

After having run 10 marathons I decided it might be time to finally run a 5K. I had no idea how to race it and definitely learned A LOT from the experience. I hadn’t run once that week leading up to it….I was trying to rest my body from running another marathon(5 days prior). It […]

I recently learned some very helpful information on hydration and the runners body. This had led me to believe that my diagnosis of being in a chronic state of dehydration is right. So last night when I went running again – I took my trusty hand held water bottle with me. I think even though […]

Tonight I had the brainiac idea to go running. I thought that maybe it might start working for me to run at night after the kids go to bed – this would allow me to run alone – but also mean that my husband wouldn’t have to watch the kids. I was promptly reminded why […]

Senior year of high school and I was supposed to come up with a blurb to go next to my yearbook picture – I chose a quote instead – “Happiness is as a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.” […]

Ever noticed how you don’t truly miss something until you don’t have it anymore? Every day I open my closet door and turn on the light to get ready – this weekend my light blew and I was too lazy to find a light bulb and replace it. Every time I went to my closet […]

Kids clothing and the sport of running don’t mix…..I’d be rich if I had a dollar for every soccer, basketball, football or baseball piece of apparel I’ve seen for little boys – but try looking for something – anything related to running and you will find just about nothing. Why is this? Why is it […]

I’ll admit that even though I try to be an optimist I’m a bit of a cynic. I sometimes focus too much on the negative instead of the positive. I’m a complainer even though I have nothing to complain about. I can be overly sensitive about nothing and usually am a bit paranoid as well. […]

Heartbreak Hill – most think it has this name because it’s the hardest hill in the Boston Marathon – which really isn’t the case. According to wikipedia (which I love almost as much as google) – Heartbreak Hill “originated with an event in the 1936 race. On this stretch, defending champion John A. Kelley caught […]

…that I used to laugh at. My friend Claire and I tell this story to each other over and over again – we also like to tell others but I don’t think they find it as funny as we do. When I first met Claire – she was one of my moms friends – they […]
