Santa Fe Trip–Part One

I can’t believe this was almost two months ago! I’ve finally gotten around to getting some pictures together in the form of a blog post. I’m splitting in into two posts–the fun stuff, and then the race recap. Not that the race wasn’t fun (sucking air at 7300 feet is SO FREAKING FUN!), but I’m […]

Feeling Hopeful Again

I’m kind of at a weird place in time training-wise because we have only three weeks in between two halfs. Neither of us has done that before, although I know there are tons of people who do this routinely. My goal is to keep my weekly mileage up (upper 30s to low 40s) and get […]

Taper Week and Something Exciting

Tapering this week for the Emerald City Half on Sunday. Here’s how my week went: Monday: 4 hot and hilly miles with Ryan after work. Followed by a glass of wine (or two) with Kelly. Guess which was the best part? Tuesday: First day back to school! I know everyone says this, but I feel […]

First Week of Cap City Half Marathon Training

….and nothing went at all as planned. But first….Kelly and I are both signed up for this race which has always been near and dear to our hearts, since we both used to live in Columbus. It’s a nice course (read: FLAT, my favorite four-letter word–unless of course, we’re talking mile 22 of a marathon, […]

Five Favorites Friday–2nd Edition

1) Let’s just start right off with this: Not that I’m loving this cold, gray bucket of suck currently, but it did make me laugh. I KNOW there are plenty of you out there who can relate. I mean COME ON already. We just got pounded again Tuesday night and rumor has it there’s a […]

Five Favorites Friday

Something new from us–and what will hopefully become a regular feature! 1) This is what I’m currently reading: No Meat Athlete by Matt Frazier. One of my goals for 2014 is to eat more cleanly, and as I mentioned I was contemplating going vegetarian. For almost two weeks now, I’ve gone without eating meat, eggs, […]

Back to Reality…

So what has happened over the last month and a half since I have posted? A Whole Lot of Travel DC Watched four of my favorite people run the Marine Corp Marathon. Hawaii We spent three nights in Hawaii relaxing and enjoying the sunshine. We stayed at the Hyatt Waikiki and loved spending time on […]

MCM Recap Part One

So the MCM was such a big weekend, I thought it deserved to be divided into two posts. If you follow us on Instagram, you probably already know how I did, so I’m not giving anything away here. I am, however, going to start with the easy (non-running) part first. My sister surprised the girls […]

We are SO on!

Second week of the taper. It really hasn’t hit me yet. It’s been a busy and unfortunately rough week at work–therefore my mind has been distracted. Monday: 4 very easy treadmill miles in 39:04 Wednesday: 5 MP miles outside in 42:28 Thursday: 4 treadmill miles in 37:02 As most everyone knows, on Tuesday MCM registrants […]

He stressed the importance of carbohydrates to […]
