Thankful for Running
Now that I’m back running, I’m so thankful that I’m able to do something that I love.  I was thinking about how good I was feeling during my 30 minute run yesterday that I felt myself tearing up.  And yes, you did read that right.  I ran 30 minutes straight with no walk breaks.  When […]

The Rundown – Hot Mess
Those two words pretty much sum up how I feel after the Thanksgiving holiday — a hot mess. I have a holiday hangover, only a few short weeks to get all the shopping, wrapping, photo card, giving and party planning done and the boys had half days for what seemed like an eternity. It is […]

Last Week’s Workouts
Last week’s workouts were way better than the week prior.  The pain from the pinched nerve in my neck got better with each day.  After taking a week off from all strength training, it felt good to get back to it. Monday 30 minutes Arc Trainer 15 minutes Stepmill alternating 20 steps forward, 20 steps […]

The Rundown – Las Vegas RNR Half Marathon Stripped Down
I have never run a race like the one I did in Las Vegas last week. With what seemed like the better part of the Las Vegas police force armed with assault rifles, lookouts with binoculars on top of buildings and parking structures and police helicopters screaming overhead, myself and 40,000 other runners assembled outside of […]
