Oops, it’s been over a year and a half since I blogged. I sort of had a nervous breakdown training for the marathon and had to give some things up…blogging was one of them. But, things have since settled down, and I’m hoping to pick up writing my blog again. So, a quick update. I […]

After yesterday’s post, I’m sure everyone wants an update, right? I can just hear you all clamoring to interview me asking, “did you make it to mile 23?” “how did you overcome the wall?” and “why is this a perfect training run?”  The first question is a quick answer, which muddies up the rest, no, […]

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, so I thought I’d catch you up.  I’m just over 7 weeks away from my first marathon.  7 weeks, and 1 day.  Don’t ask me to break it down into hours and minutes and seconds, because I’m nervous enough as it is. Being about 7 weeks out means […]

Remember that marathon in May I’m training for?  Well, my weekend runs are getting longer and longer, and I’m only about halfway through my training.  Last weekend, I ran my furthest distance in almost a year, 14 miles.  Actually, to be honest, it was 14.2, but who’s counting, right?  If you’re a runner, you know […]

A while back, I wrote about how I hurt my knee after a 14 mile training run.  I also wrote about how it healed in time for the 1/2 marathons I was running shortly thereafter.  What I haven’t written about is my newest trauma…a hip injury. Just after The Great Race 10k at the end […]

Several times, I’ve discussed why I run.  I’ve talked about the group on Facebook called, I Run 4 Michael and how I got involved.  I’ve even discussed the little boy who I run for.  Today, I’d like to share with you the words of his beautiful mother to celebrate Downs Syndrome Awareness Month. Yesterday, she […]

Oh my goodness.  I can’t believe that.  I pushed the button.  I confirmed registration for a FULL 26.2 mile MARATHON.  Up to now, the furthest I’ve run is 15 miles in one race, but now I have to complete 11.2 miles OVER that.  OH.MY.GOSH.  I never thought I would commit to that when I began […]
