Two for One Special {Weekly Training Log}

I just realized that I didn’t post my runs last week, because of the epic stomach bug.  So this will be a quick two week review. For the week of Jan 12-18, I only got to run twice.  Sunday: And Wednesday: Both were good runs.  On the Wednesday run, I tested out a new jacket. […]

Makeup That Lasts 26.2 Miles

Last year I ran a really great trail race on Lake DeGray.  I knew the trail very well, and placed second out of the women and thirteenth overall.  I know this is so vain and please don’t think less of me for my next statement.  I was not happy with the photo that was taken […]

I Actually Listened {Weekly Training Log}

Well, y’all know I ran the 3 Bridges Marathon last Saturday.  I set out on a nice marathon recovery plan to start the week and on Sunday I ran a slow 2 miles:   Monday, I walked 2 miles and my legs felt great.  I was recovering nicely! Tuesday was a running rest day, but […]

Inaugural 3 Bridges Marathon {Race Recap}

This post is long and I am not sorry. Running the 3 Bridges Marathon was one of the best things that happened to me in 2013.  After being plagued by injury all summer, I needed something to restore my running confidence.  You see, I’ve only been running for two years.  People assume I have been […]

My Weekly Training Log {Marathon Training Weeks 11 & 12}

Well, week 11 started off pretty normal.  I beasted my short Monday run and mid-distance Wednesday run with no problems. Saturday, I was supposed to run 16 miles.  I skipped.  I did not feel like running, so I didn’t.  Gasp! Week 12 started out super busy and it was my last rest week for this […]

My Weekly Training Log {Marathon Training Week 10}

My training was kind of wonky this week. Since my long run was on Sunday afternoon of last week, I rode my bike for 30 minutes on Monday instead of running. I ran a quick 2 miles before class on Tuesday. I was supposed to run 8 miles of speed work on Wednesday, but you […]

My Weekly Training Log {Marathon Training Week 9}

Well, week 9 is over.  It was a pretty good week. On Monday, my weekly short run was fun. There was a torrential downpour on Wednesday, so I ran on the treadmill.  I did a 7 mile tempo run.  It was super boring. You will be so proud.  On Thursday and Friday, I completed a […]

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 […]
