IRTB Silver

I wrote out a whole blog post rambling about how wonderful and crazy life is. Filled with so many twists and turns – highs and lows. It was fun to write and even more fun to delete. My journal has been my best friend lately and all the nonsense I wrote was probably more for my […]

A couple of weeks ago a friend asked me to join her at a R.I.P.P.E.D. class {R.I.P.P.E.D. – stands for Resistance, Interval, Power, Plyometrics, Endurance and Diet}. I had NO idea what I was in for.

I’ve been to doctors about said sweating […]

As a runner, who doesn’t always listen to music, and who mostly trains alone for marathons, I have a lot of time to think. I think about anything and everything. Some days the thoughts can be maddening other days they feel invigorating, as if the run is giving me a gift. A gift I would […]

music

All I find myself doing these days is dreaming of warmer weather. Music is about the only thing getting me through long runs – that and thinking about laying out on the beach sometime in the near future. If you need some new music to help you make it through your runs – check out this […]
