My #kindawesome Experience

A few weeks ago, KIND Healthy Snacks sent me a “good luck” fuel box to use while I am in this cycle of marathon training. Since I live in rural Arkansas, I have only seen KIND Healthy Snacks on a few shelves.  You guys know how picky I am, so I never bothered to try […]

My Weekly Training Log {Marathon Training Week 8}

Yippee! Rest week!  I was mentally ready for this week and it went pretty good. On Saturday, I was the final victim of the stomach virus that swept through the family.  I thought I felt pretty good, but as my time tells, I was doing pretty bad 🙁 Oh well, no more running after stomach […]

2013 Cossatot River Trail Half Marathon {Race Recap}

I gladly hopped out of bed at 4:15am and drove an hour and a half to participate in this half marathon.  I entered the GPS coordinates into my iPhone and drove off into the darkness. I arrived at the Cossatot River Visitor Center at 6:28am.  I accidentally drank an entire pot of coffee during my […]

My Weekly Training Log {Marathon Training Week 7}

  Ok, sorry that I haven’t posted my last two weeks, but I have completed all my runs.  It was normal. I had fun. Now for week 7. On Monday, I had a nice short run.  My legs were pretty sore from that hilly half, so I kept it slow and ginger… I was busy […]

2013 Bismarck BBQ Bash XC 5k and Parade {Race Recap}

This is the second year I have ran the BBQ Bash XC 5k.  The start line is a little over a mile from my house, so I have no excuse to not run this race.  Last year, I ran for speed and I came in second overall.  This year, I ran for fun and came […]

My Weekly Training Log {Marathon Training Week 4}

This was the first rest week of this training cycle, and it was a weird one! I knew my week was going to be scheduled pretty heavy, so I decided to run on Sunday after church.  I have experienced ocular migraines since I was in my early 20s.  They are a very weird type of […]

My Weekly Training Log {Marathon Training Week 2}

  Well, week 2 of marathon training is over and it was uneventful.  Those are my favorite kind of weeks. On Sunday, I cross trained with a 30 minute plyo workout.  My PT said I should do these to help strengthen my hips and knees.  It isn’t all that hard, but I always feel really […]
