Not According to Plan…

Remember how I told you I was back on a training plan for my marathon next month? Yeah, I didn’t stick to the plan very well this week. Sunday was Easter and I woke up and just wanted to run, so I headed over to Lake DeGray and ran 6 miles and walked a half […]

Back on a Training Plan and the Womble Trail

Sorry to be posting this on a Sunday, but we just returned from another weekend on Lake Ouachita.  After the Little Rock Marathon, I’ve been kind of lackadaisical regarding my fitness, but never fear, I have finally gotten back on a training plan.  Well, I signed up for a marathon on the 25th of May […]

2014 Capital City Classic 10k {Race Recap}

Well, have you ever run a race, have a blast, and as your driving away think: “Poop, I didn’t take any pictures. How am I going to blog about this?” Oh, only me? Thankfully, the super awesome Arkansas Outside took a bunches of photos and posted them on their Facebook page. It isn’t surprising that […]

There’s a First Time for Everything…

I didn’t really have a plan for my running this week.  I just ran what felt right. On Monday it was brutally cold.  It was also the first night for the Women Can Run 5k training clinic.  I am helping to lead one of the groups, so I had to attend.  I really didn’t believe […]

Running is Better Than Therapy

When I wasn’t allowed to finish the Little Rock Marathon, I felt as if I had failed to reach my goal of becoming a Marathon Maniac.  I understand that everything surrounding my “re-routing” was completely beyond my control, but in my mind I failed.  What if I would have disobeyed the police officer and kept […]

2014 Little Rock Marathon {Race Recap}

First, let me state that the 2014 Little Rock Marathon was re-routed for our safety.  I was only allowed to complete 14-ish miles.  At 11:30am there was a large severe thunderstorm located around Hot Springs Village, and it was projected to move directly over the race course.  The race directors were forced to make the […]

I’m Being Lazy

This weekend is going to be really busy.  I have a lot of very, very fun things planned.  I am super excited, but there is a little problem. I cannot get motivated to plan, pack, or clean the house.  I have been binge watching Sherlock this morning. I am normally a very motivated person.  I make […]

2014 Run the Line Half Marathon {Race Recap}

A few days before Valentine’s Day, Aaron asked me what I wanted for my gift.  I looked him square in the eye and asked for a race registration and hotel stay.  I honestly believed he would say no, but he didn’t.  He asked me which race I had in mind, and I answered “Run the […]

2014 Mississippi River Marathon {Race Recap}

This past weekend, Lisa and I completed the Mississippi River Marathon.  We only have one more marathon (on March 2) before we are officially Maniacs! The always lovely, Delta Moxie allowed us to stay in her home during our trip.  It was lightly snowing when we arrived, but the beautiful welcome banner and good luck […]

Declaration Day

When you read my goals for 2014, that I published on January 1st, you may have noticed that I left out any real running goals.  I did that on purpose.  I do have running goals for 2014, but I wasn’t sure if I was ready to make them official.  Honestly, I was still searching my […]
