Heat index of 105 degrees – YIKES Probably not the best weather for attempting a Yasso track workout but I did it anyways. mile repeats – 6:39, 6:38, 6:42 – haven’t run mile repeats in I don’t know how long – so this felt like a hard workout even though the actual fast part was […]

Last night I ran the Friends of the W&OD 10K race put on by race director Jay Jacob Wind. With temps in the high 80’s and a sunny 6:30 pm start I didn’t have high expectations for myself. I was shocked to notice a decent amount of good runners at the start of the race […]

I’m thinking the hot weather + the lovely humidity *insert sarcasm* is what is causing my tiredness. I’ve sort of taken it easy this week because I plan on running a 10K tonight. It should be pretty hilarious considering how hot it is out and the fact that the start time is 6:30pm. I broke […]

I’m more tired today after a fast 14 with Meredith than I was after running my last marathon. Yes I was more sore after running a full 26.2 – but I’m walking around today like a zombie – I might as well have just run a marathon. I’m useless! I think I’d be really sad […]

The other night after a ‘family run’ my husband challenged me to a race (A family run being defined as me running pushing the babies and my husband running beside us listening to his ipod – I’m still not sure if the music is for extra motivation or to drown out my talking??). A dash […]

Stranger Than Fiction – About 10 minutes into this movie my husband fell asleep – he woke up an hour later and asked if it was good – I said without thinking – “it’s strange” Midway through a run the other day I realized that blogging has made running feel like MY life is being […]

Youth is wasted on the young. I’ve heard this before many times but when my grandmother said it to me this morning it really stuck. I have been DEAD tired lately. I don’t know if it’s my body catching up from a year of sleepless nights or if it’s running in the heat in the […]

It’s that time of year again. Tour Time. I’ll admit that I was a bit of a fair weather friend. Once Lance retired it didn’t have quite the same excitement as it did before. But he’s back. And so am I. The Tour reminds me of good times. My skinny summer with Claire where all […]

Lately I really have been seeing a difference in my running based on what I eat. On days that I eat really healthy making sure I get enough protein, good fats and carbs – I feel good the next day on a run. The days I splurge and eat whatever I want(whatever = crap) I […]

The word makes me cringe. I run – I don’t jog – I never have. I used to run 11 min miles – I ran then walked – ran then walked – never jogged. I think whatever pace you run you are still running unless of course you are speed walking or power walking but […]

There would be paths in every town longer than a mile or two. There would be more water fountains. I would plants more trees. I would outlaw concrete sidewalks and make them something a little more knee friendly. I would mandate bike lanes in all new development. I would give tickets to people who honk […]
