My Running Journey Mile by Mile :)

Addictions!

This was not an easy list to create. Initially I thought this post would take 10 minutes, but oh no! It was a lot harder to narrow down things that I’m really addicted to versus just really like. When something popped in my head I’d ask myself, “Self, could you live without this?” And obviously I could live without everything on this list, but hey, what kind of boring life would that be?! So, here is goes: RUNNING- duh! Publix- I look forward to their new weekly ad every Thursday! Target- or Targe, enough said OATMEAL- I have a huge bowl […]

Perfectly Bad Timing

Timing: There is never a good time to get injured. No one wants to be sidelined from something the love doing… especially when the end goal has to be postponed or even worse, cancelled like mine (Tallahassee Marathon). Perfect: I’ve been pondering the idea of starting a blog for a while, but wasn’t sure where to begin or what exactly I would write about- other than running of course.

Knock Knock!

For those of you who know me, you know that when I am home alone I DO NOT open the door if someone knocks or rings, unless I am expecting them. I’ve had people text/call me from the front door telling me they know I’m home and to open up, haha. So this morning when I heard the dreaded ‘knock knock’ I signaled Riley to bark and scare the bad guy away. A good ten minutes later I opened the door… Now THIS is my kind of surprise delivery! I was down to my last two canisters of Cafe Du […]

Ohhhh February 3, 2013…

Today I was supposed to run in the 49th Tallahassee Marathon. It would have been my 8th 26.2 mile race and a hopeful PR of under 3:10. The course is super flat and the weather was perfect, high 40’s and sunny. Was I toeing the line at 7:30 this morning? Nope! I was making pancakes for the hubs while he was out doing his long run and starting this blog- super fun! Let’s backtrack a bit… I’ve been running for 5 or so years now, have quite a few races (of all distances) under my belt. I’ve brought my marathon […]
