Vegas Running 4

Rock N Roll Vegas Marathon 2014 did not disappoint. In fact, 2014 proved to be bigger and better than 2013 and 2012! This year was crazier schedule wise for me than the previous two years. This year I had the honor of being one of the guest speakers at the expo. I honestly have a […]

16 Miler 11-3

I highly recommend skipping a long run or changing up your schedule if you are sick. There are however going to be situations where you still need to get it in and will have to make the best of a not fun situation. The weekend before last I skipped Marine Corps Marathon – I had […]

Vegas 2

Here are my top 5 reasons why you should join me in running Rock ‘N’ Roll Las Vegas. 1. You get the big marathon experience with a smaller marathon feel. I’ve run large marathons and small marathons. I’ve finished first and I’ve finished 2,049,823,498 (slight exaggeration). When I run a larger marathon now, it’s typically for the […]

April 1 - 2

April is my favorite month of the year. Its not too hot – not too cold – just riiiiiiight. The thought of April approaching in March makes my heart leap. April 1st is a very special day for me. It’s the birthday of my great grandmother who died of TB when my grandmother was very young, I […]

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 […]

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 […]

Alex and Ani 3

It seems that everywhere you turn these days there is a gift guide for what everyone thinks you should be buying for Christmas. Some of these guides are helpful, some are annoying. I’m pretty sure that no one in my family would be leaping for joy if they got a huge box of 5 hour […]

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 […]
