April Flashback

Is it just me, or did April fly by? I didn't run as much as I'd planned this month, but I'm still happy with my overall performance. I'd originally had a half marathon planned for May 18th and another in early June, but I'm going to be traveling from mid-May to mid-June for work, which derailed… Continue reading April Flashback

Find Your Inner Strength

"I run because it's so symbolic of life. You have to drive yourself to overcome the obstacles. You might feel that you can't. But then you find your inner strength, and realize you're capable of so much more than you thought." - Arthur Blank

I was having so much fun I didn't… Continue reading Running Like a Girl

Today was race #3 in my 14 in 2014 Race Challenge. One step closer to completion! This morning I ran the Arbor Day 10k at the Morton Arboretum. I loved attending a local race. I rolled out of bed, fed pup, grabbed some coffee and left for the race 45 minutes before the start. What… Continue reading Arbor Day 10k at the Morton Arboretum

Mile Markers

I love reading - books, magazine, name it! For the longest time I only read physical books and magazines and hadn't yet experienced e-reading. But this all changed when my mother-in-law (aka one of the most thoughtful gift givers I've ever known) gave me a Kindle for Christmas this past year. This wonderful lightweight baby… Continue reading Mile Markers
