Thank you for the kind comments on my last post both here and on Facebook – y’all sure know how to make a girl feel loved! I decided to write a little update post today… Continue reading Mississauga Marathon Training: Month 1
I just felt like writing today. In case you haven’t noticed, I haven’t felt like that in a long time. So, why today? What’s different? Nothing, really. I’m in Tulsa in “my” room in my friend Patty’s house. I’m back for the Route 66 Marathon for the 8th year in a row, although for the 3rd year… Continue reading TALES FROM THE CRYPT

I’ve got some other fun posts coming up soon, too – I just need to sit down and actually… Continue reading LONG TIME, NO BLOG – UPDATES!

You know that I was pretty much crushing it in… Continue reading A SHORE THING – NEW JERSEY MARATHON RACE REPORT
I’m going to be honest – I thought I was in the clear. I made it through my 18 and 20 milers with flying colors just a few weeks ago, and then had two cutback weeks before gearing up for another 18 and 20. The New Jersey Marathon is just around the corner, and I’ve… Continue reading SPOKE TOO SOON
It’s been a busy two weeks and we’re now into the final month of training before the New Jersey Marathon! In some ways, it feels like I’ve been training forever, but in others, it feels like I have just started. After two months of pretty steady build up, these past two weeks have seen cut… Continue reading A LITTLE CUTBACK AND A BIG MARCH
There’s no other way to slice it – this week was my biggest and best yet of this marathon training cycle! I ran my first 20 miler of the cycle and chose my race, too! Monday – 6 miles: After several big weeks in a row (including last weekend’s 18 miler), I was worried that my… Continue reading CHOOSING A MARATHON AND 20 MILES!
Man, where does the time go? It’s like I blink and the week is over and it’s 10 pm on Sunday night and I realize that I haven’t posted anything about my training in weeks. It might lead you to believe I gave up training for my as-yet-to-be-determined marathon, but I haven’t! In fact, these… Continue reading DON’T PANIC – I’M STILL TRAINING
