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.

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}

My Weekly Training Log {August 25-31, 2013}

I hope you guys have had a great week. Mine has been pretty good.  Nothing terribly exciting, just a good ‘ole week. Y’all know how OCD I am about planning.  I am running the Little Rock Marathon in March again, so I put all my training runs on my calendar.  I noticed something.  If I […]
