2013 Little Rock Marathon {Race Recap}

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 […]

Week 14 Recap {Marathon Training}

Week 13 Recap I had to get a little creative this week with my schedule.  I am thankful I was able to get all 32 miles completed.  This also marks the last official increase week.  I finally reached the magical 20 mile run and it was emotional. Sunday: I was able to get a little […]

Week 13 Recap {Marathon Training}

Week 12 Recap Last week was good.  I practiced a little better time management skills and moved a run to a different day and it all seemed to work out.  My right knee did begin to hurt a little, but it has eased off with no anti-inflammatory required.  I will just slow my pace down […]

Week 12 Recap {Marathon Training}

Week 11 Recap This week flew by.  This was the first full week of all my classes and labs and I really had to work at squeezing in runs and scheduling my time appropriately.  I have to make running one of my priorities or I can easily make an excuse to skip a run or […]

Tailwind Nutrition Endurance Fuel {Product Review}

First, let me start by saying I purchased this product with Aaron’s hard earned money. Tailwind Nutrition did not ask me to review their product or compensate me in anyway. BUT, if Tailwind does decide to send me some swag, I love the Mandarin Orange flavor. 😉 Sorry about the wordiness in this post, but […]

Week 11 Recap {Marathon Training}

Week 10 Recap This week was a little exciting.  I was able to finally purchase a Garmin Forerunner 910XT.  It is magical.  I went ahead and bought the Triathlon bundle, which came with a heart monitor and a speed/cadence sensor for my bike.  This new equipment has opened my eyes to the importance of a […]

Week 10 Recap {Marathon Training}

Week 9 Recap This was a pretty normal, boring week.  I like those. Sunday: I rested Monday: I ran 4 miles in 38:06 with an average pace of 9:32 minutes/mile.  It was a little chilly, but I am getting better at dressing.  By the time I get used to the cold it will be over […]

Week 9 Recap {Marathon Training}

Week 8 Recap {Marathon Training}

Week 7 Recap Well, this week was kind of a lost week.  Mother Nature forced me to rest.  I suppose she knows what she is doing, but I really wanted to run. Sunday: I weighed in at 137 lbs. Glad most of the previous weeks damage came back off, but with Christmas coming up next […]

Week 7 Recap {Marathon Training}

Week 6 Recap Ok, I have either done something genius or really stupid.  Since I am running the Little Rock Marathon, I decided to join their training group and run their plan.  I did not do my long run last weekend because of the trail race, so I figured this would be a good week […]
