I’ve never done a Friday 5, but I figured I’d give it a shot this week. Mar on the Run, Eat Pray Run, and You Signed Up for What?! host a weekly linkup that anyone can join in on. This week is a freebe, so I can post on a topic of my choosing. MyContinue reading “Friday 5 Linkup: My FIVE Half Marathons”

Race Recap: Holy Half Marathon!
After finishing the Holy Half Marathon, I think I can confidently say that I really love the half marathon distance. I was a little worried that A1A was a fluke, in both performance and enjoyment, but I ran almost the exact same time at the Holy Half AND I had fun doing it. And plusContinue reading “Race Recap: Holy Half Marathon!”
Training Update: Race Week!
I didn’t really do a whole lot of running this week besides the race. Frank and I spent a lot of the week going through our stuff. We’ve already brought two carloads to Goodwill! It feels great to be cleaning stuff out, and I can’t wait to move. I know, Kansas might not sound likeContinue reading “Training Update: Race Week!”
Race Jitters and Goals
‘Tis the night before race day… and I still have no idea what I want out of it. I guess that’s becoming a trend with me. I think I’ll just wake up tomorrow and see how I feel, and that will kinda determine the time that I go for. Unfortunately, this is going to beContinue reading “Race Jitters and Goals”
Training Update: Well… not the best of weeks…
I know, I know… I still have not posted my race recap from last week. Things have been very stressful and I’ve been going through some ups and downs in my personal life. Actually, my personal life has been all ups. My work life has really been the downs. I think the stress of theseContinue reading “Training Update: Well… not the best of weeks…”
It’s cold here in the midwest!
Wow… This week has really been a wonderful experience. I really can’t believe A1A is over AND that I totally crushed my A goal with a time of 1:56:45 for my half marathon debut. On top of all of that… I signed up for the A1A Half Marathon again next year. It was an extremelyContinue reading “It’s cold here in the midwest!”
And the training continues…
This week has been awesome! I’m still on a PR high and I am looking forward to all of the training and craziness of my next Half Marathon. It’s only 38 days away… This half is quite a bit smaller, so I wont have the crowd of people to lean on mentally when the goingContinue reading “And the training continues…”
Training Update: Keeping up the Intensity!
Here we are, two weeks out from the A1A Half Marathon. And, I gotta say, this week was great! It was exactly what I needed to get myself back on track after being so sick. I am certainly not quite 100%, though. My husband says that I have been snoring sometimes at night, which isContinue reading “Training Update: Keeping up the Intensity!”
Finally Back to the Training
Here we are, less than one month from my first Half Marathon. I am starting to get a little nervous about the whole thing, especially since my training got pretty messed up after having the flu. But with two weeks of illness behind me, I am back in the game and ready to take the A1AContinue reading “Finally Back to the Training”
training update with very little training
The A1A Half Marathon is 33 days away and for the past week, I have not been training. I came down with the flu and was too sick to be awake, no less to run. This certainly causes some hiccups in the training plan, but I am more concerned about getting over the flu than breaking 2Continue reading “training update with very little training”
