Vegas Neg Split 1

I’m going to start this post out with a little disclaimer. I do not know any of the women who finished in the top ten at Rock N Roll Marathon, so I don’t know what was going on during their race or if there were other factors that caused their slow down other than starting […]

On 11.17.13 I ran my 26th marathon. I’d be lying if I said I was ready to run 26.2 miles again. MCM was a month ago and I had no intentions of racing. A faster {for you} marathon affects your body differently than a slower {for you marathon} does. I seriously considered stepping back and running the […]

If you are like me – starting ten days out from a marathon you start to stalk weather.com. Instead of stalking the weather this weekend I’ve been getting my information direct from the source! Today’s “guest” on Mile Posts is….. The Running Weatherman aka Alex Liggitt of ABC 7 in DC — Here is his weather […]

Vegas 2012 8

When I first starting sharing my running adventures with others {it was pretty much my mom and my mom reading when I first started this blog} I OVER shared about my running, my life, my dreams, and my goals. This works for some people. It doesn’t work for me. Keeping my real goals close to […]

After I ran my first marathon I had this goal of completing an Ironman race for my 30th birthday. 30 seemed far off enough that I could actually make that happen. This was before kids and before I actually THOUGHT about the training that goes in to completing an event like the Ironman. My 30th […]

Treadmill Ultra 3

Two weekends ago I was supposed to run 20 miles on Saturday and race a 5K Sunday. The run didn’t happen on Saturday. I didn’t run when I first woke up and I kept putting it off. Then I came up with a million and one reasons why it was everyone’s fault but my own as to […]

Vegas 2012 1

I get mind blocks. My mom once went a year with out cleaning her car because she had a block about it. I get it. I get those type of mind blocks and no matter how hard it is to overcome them sometimes I can’t. I get mini blocks about writing race recaps. I don’t […]

I can’t believe it’s race morning and I’m sitting around hanging out. I could get used to this night race thing. No running around stressed the night before. No 3:30 am wake up calls to get up and drive to the race. I had a really yummy in my tummy breakfast [how do you not […]

I’ve been a little out of sorts lately. Okay a lot out of sorts. Stress + lack of running + post marathon blues = very unhappy Dorothy. So when the opportunity arose to run YET another MARATHON how could I say no?!?! I’ve never been to VEGAS and what better way to see a city […]

National Running Day

This picture is too awesome not to share! If you love it too you can visit the Saucony facebook page and hit the share button. Tell us, how did you celebrate National Running Day? I celebrated this morning by pushing both boys for 6 miles in the double stroller – 48:56 with an average of 8:08 Mile […]

Rock N Roll

I don’t normally talk bad about races or even really write about something that I know is controversial but this has me MORE than fired up. I should mention before starting my little rant that I used to work for National Marathon [what Rock N Roll USA was before it got bought by Competitor Group]. […]
