Little Rock Marathon

Well, I ran my first marathon and I really don’t know what to do with myself now. This entire experience reminds me of giving birth to a child. You train and have intermittent periods of discomfort. You begin the race and you are so excited, but in a few hours you are experiencing miserable pain […]

2013 Arkansas Trail Run Series Lake DeGray Trail Run

Well, it wouldn’t be one of my trail races without a foggy picture to start the day. I think Lake DeGray is out there somewhere, but I am not totally sure. We met at the Iron Mountain Trail Head to pick up our packets and chat before taking off. I started talking to the race […]

2013 Arkansas Trail Run Series 2012 Mt. Nebo Bench Trail Run

  After a lovely 4:30am alarm and two and a half hour, curvy, drizzly drive I finally made it to Mt. Nebo. This was my first time to travel up the mountain and the views were just wonderful! Ok, it was a little too foggy to see the river valley below, but the clouds did […]

2013 Arkansas Trail Run Series Race the Base Trail Run

This past Saturday I ventured into the world of trail running.  My roomie, Lisa,  from AWBU was directing her first race and being the great pal that I am, I signed up.  I have run on gravel and dirt roads, but never a bonafide trail.  I am kind of clumsy and I hoped this adventure […]

2012 Susan G. Komen Race For the Cure Arkansas 5K

I have signed up for the 5K walk several times, but I this was my first RFTC competitive run.  The atmosphere was magic.  There were so many women (50,000) and so much pink!  The whole race just made me happy. The course was pretty easy with only 2 bridges and a few gentle upward slopes. […]

2012 Bismarck BBQ Bash XC 5K

I was pretty excited to run the Bismarck BBQ Bash XC 5K because the starting line was about a mile from my driveway.  I was kind of sad when the school buses with junior high and high school runners pulled up.  Kids always make us older runners look bad, they are so effortlessly fast.  I […]

2012 Heart and Soul Half Marathon

Unless you have been under a rock, you know that this past Saturday was my 31st birthday and I ran my first half marathon.  It was absolutely awesome. I will say that the two days before the race were the best part of the whole training process. CARB LOADING!  Those two days make the whole […]

Labor Day Weekend 2012

We celebrated the ending of summer by spending the weekend on an island on the north side of Lake Ouachita.  We are huge fans of island camping.  It is nice to get away from people and enjoy your own little corner of the lake. We shared the island with our friends Matt and April.  Between […]

Dam Night Run 5k

My sister-in-law, Amberlee and I got to run with my mother-in-law for her very first 5k. We had such a fun time and I am proud to say that my mother-in-law finished the whole race without walking. She ran the entire route! We finished in 46:51 and we had a blast. The route was mostly […]

Warrior Dash 2012

I am proud to say that I completed the Warrior Dash without injuring myself.  I do have some scratches on my knees from crawling and a large bruise on my thigh from who knows what, but I didn’t break anything! I finished in 45:56.  I was pretty disappointed in that time, but hey, I’ll take […]
