Two magic words for running (and life)

Our whole family went out for a run early yesterday morning. What a treat to all run together at an easy, conversational pace! This last month has been a “cut-back” month for me, something I needed both mentally and physically.

The care-free country runs on vacation helped me to fall in love with running all [...]

Flashback: Running in the 70′s

We made it safely to PA, and I’m already enjoying the chance to run, snack, nap, and blog whenever I want, thanks to all the grandparent time!

When to call it quits?

I ended the Runner’s world running streak this week. I’m not injured, but I felt my body accumulating a fatigue that I did not want to tolerate for another few weeks, so I decided to take a complete rest day to give me legs a chance to recover. I made it over two weeks, which [...]

Purposeful Running- Tia’s story (racing mom of 4)

This girl is such an inspiration to me. Tia is a mom of four, woman of faith, and has maintained an impressive running resume, with serious speed! I’m always learning from her and admire her family-running balance. I’m so excited she was willing to share with you all today! I can definitely relate to her [...]

Triathlons and baseball

Thanks to some of my triathlete friends (Corey, Holly, Jamie and others), I’m strongly considering a sprint triathlon. Holly told me about several in the next few months, and the one that’s most appealing is at the end of June. It’s a 300m pool swim, short 10 mile bike, and 3 mile run. Very doable.
