Race to 35 Redux & Dealing with an Injury

October was supposed to be THE month. It was my BIRTHDAY month! The month where my Race to 35 journey would end. Remember? My FIRST half-marathon for my 35th race and for my 35th birthday? Yeah…well. “So, what had happened was…” My running game was off and I wanted to salvage my training. Since I knew … Continue reading

Two is better than zero.

Two is better than zero.

Last Saturday morning after tearing ourselves away from watching ESPN’s College Football Gameday,  my Fave and I got up for a run. I was looking forward to it but also nervous.

Half-Marathon Training – Week 7

May is almost over and I feel like I didn’t train as hard as I wanted to. I can blame it on so many things right now: I was too busy. I was too tired. I ate too much. The NBA Playoffs are on! and so on and so on… I’m not going to dwell on any of that … Continue reading
