Running my first 50 mile trail race!

I know I said I’d never run another half marathon after my first years back.  I also said I’d never run another marathon after ripping my quad tendon in 2016.  I am the person who said I’d never ever run an ultra. Well now… Continue Reading “Running my first 50 mile trail race!”

So long 2017

With only a few days remaining in 2017, I looked back on this year and can say that it wasn’t half bad.  It didn’t start at all the way I had hoped but I came back from that setback thanks to the amazing support… Continue Reading “So long 2017”

My thoughts on not running Chicago in 2018

I’ll have to be honest that I sat around most of the day waiting to hear if I got into the 2018 Chicago Marathon.  After finishing 2017, I told everyone that I was retiring from marathons.  It’s been hard on the body, the mind,… Continue Reading “My thoughts on not running Chicago in 2018”

Shopping for runners

With the holidays coming up, I’ve been asked for gift ideas that a runner might enjoy.  Now, as many non-runners believe, what else does a runner need besides shoes?  That is exactly what I would have thought until I actually started running a few… Continue Reading “Shopping for runners”

Staying a positive person

While I’m not certain about my future in running after scheduling my surgery on November 29th, I will be positive and strive to get back to the sport that has given me so much.  Over the last couple of months, I’ve been going back… Continue Reading “Staying a positive person”

What I’ve learned from running!

It’s only been a few years into my running adventures and though I’m far from being an expert, I have learned a few things.  This comes mainly from experience but also from friends who also partake in this crazy sport.  I do have a… Continue Reading “What I’ve learned from running!”

My Race Plans for 2017

So I’m in the process of planning my runcations and race schedule for the upcoming year after a long winter of fixing my injuries and strengthening of course.  So far, I’ve come up with a decent wishlist and a certainty list.  I’ll update as… Continue Reading “My Race Plans for 2017”
