Blog - Colton Digger Truck

2014 has been a year of learning for me. I’ve learned that there are times that I need to speed up and others that I need to slow down. I’ve been practicing patience.  “patience is a virtue I don’t have” One way in which I have made a conscious effort to slow down is with my […]

Chloe Birthday 3

  My brain is in a fog this morning. This weekend was filled with so many wonderful things but the lack of sleep and the go go go, combined with eating things that my body reacted with has left me sluggish at best. I have a 6 mile easy run that I need to fit […]

Kinvara Kids 7

The Kinvara is my go to running shoe. Yes, I often rotate among various {mostly neutral} Saucony running shoes but the Kinvara’s make their way to my feet the most often. Finding out their was a children version of the Kinvara made me way too happy. As soon as Chloe outgrows her current running shoes, […]

Triple Stroller Race

Last night the littles {who actually aren’t that little anymore} and I marked something off my bucket list – run a race pushing the triple stroller. I had mistakenly thought our last triple stroller run had been earlier in the year. I said goodbye to *big red* {the name the former owner gave it} and […]

Run With Santa 5K

I wasn’t sure last night when I went to bed whether I would be racing today or attempting to run long. Rock N Roll Vegas Marathon had been a last minute decision, one that I hadn’t made when I decided to sign up for Potomac River Running’s Run With Santa 5K. I love racing. I […]

Reston 10 Miler 2

10/01/00 is the date I ran my first race. It was a 10K and my average for the 6.2 miles was 10:44 per mile with a finish time of 1:06:42. That was giving it all I had. I am not blessed with a natural running talent. I don’t consider myself athletic. What I learned long […]

IMG_7154

Ever since running the Firecracker 5K on the 4th of July I’ve had the racing itch. Having not raced since Boston I felt like I had gotten out of the rhythm of racing. I at times asked myself if I even cared about racing as much as I had in the past. Was it time […]
