I haven’t run a Turkey Trot since 2008. In fact, I haven’t run a 10K since 2011. And even more in fact, this was only my fifth 10K ever! Since my only experience with 10Ks was back in the day when I used to be so very much faster than I am now, it is […]
Don’t worry, I’m not actually going to talk about ketchup, or catsup (like my dad says). I just figured that since I fell off the blogging planet for the last nine months that maybe I should say a little something about where I’ve been and what I’ve been doing. Not having a baby, thank goodness, […]
AR 50–Rabbit Report
“Here comes P with her cotton tail… Hoppin’ down the AR50 trail…” Technically, my title was pacer, but what with the cute song, the tie-in with Easter and the fact that this was a totally “hare-brained” idea, I’m going with a rabbit theme here. Work with me. IronHubs decided last year – somewhere in the […]
Thank you all for your kind thoughts and comments on my last post. I wish I had a happier update for us all, but my dear friend’s son passed away September 28th. The injuries he sustained after being hit by a car while riding his bike home from school were simply too traumatic. There are […]
Gone for a While
Friends, I haven’t been keeping up with blogs this week and probably won’t get back to it for a while. My very, very dear friend’s 14-year old son was hit by a car while he was bicycling home from school on Wednesday. Tom is a great kid with a big heart, and he is fighting […]
(Rather Random) Friday Five!
One of these days (but apparently not this week), I will write a blog post that includes an actual narrative. Until then, however, I am all about the bullet points. Ha, ha! Here’s my Friday Five: Today was pretty much the best mail day EVER! First up, I ordered a pair of these bad boys […]
Another Monday…how’d that happen? I had one of those weekends that doesn’t feel very weekend-y (I worked), so today’s post is brought to you by my dear friend, the bullet point: I ran EIGHT MILES yesterday!!! You might not think that is worthy of three exclamation points, but I totally do. Eight continuous miles is […]
Done! Oh, how I love the start of a new training plan!! Ordinarily, this would mean a rest day for me. Mondays are always rest days, but not this cycle. I mentioned that I was changing things up this time, so now Monday is a run day. “Easy 2” – done! Today is also the […]
Number 1. Everything sounds more fun and festive with “a-rooni” attached to it. It’s a fact, try it. “What are you doing today?” “Getting a root canal-a-rooni.” See? Number 2. I’m still recovering from last week’s race (and still eating like I’m training for the half-iron I did in May. Duh.), as evidenced by the […]
Dancing is Totally Cross-Training, Right?
I have a race on Saturday. Am I prepared? That would be a big fat no. It’s the third race in my summer duathlon series, and until recently, I was hoping to set another PR. Well, not recently recently. More like way back when I signed up for the series, I envisioned myself building up […]
