Daily Life

This week has been filled with holiday things.  We had our run group Secret Santa on Monday and tonight we had the Christmas Light Bike Ride.  I was a little worried that it was going to rain tonight and we wouldn't be able to ride.  It was misty, but I still made it.  It was [...]

Race Recap: BCS Marathon

My double header weekend ended with the BCS Marathon in College Station, TX!  We literally finished Brazos Bend and jumped in the car to get to College Station for packet pick-up!  I hate that we didn't make in time for the expo, but we did make it there in time for the start of late [...]

Now that I’m not running…

I have a little bit more free time.  Things have settled in our house.  Willie is officially a marathoner and I've run my last races of the year.  Those recaps will be coming soon but for right now there is something else to talk about. Now that I'm not running I have a little bit [...]

Good comes from a bad day

Yesterday was a pretty bad day.  Things has progressively gotten better throughout the day but it had taken a toll on me mentally.  A series of unfortunate events finally led me to the road.  I needed to burn off some of the stress that had been building all day. I hit the road to clear [...]

Sleep evades me

I wish I had something more exciting to talk about but I don't.  I have been desperately searching for sleep.  I haven't had good sleep since Friday night.  After the marathon, I thought I was going to sleep really good but I didn't.  I spent the majority of the night watching Willie get the best [...]

Please excuse me while I talk about this race with great emotion.  This race was supposed to be my first race last year but we all know what happened.  This year it was Willie's first marathon!  When we arrived in Memphis, I felt like I was running a marathon for the first time.  I was [...]

Brown Thursday, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, those are all over.  It's time for #GivingTuesday. So what is Giving Tuesday all about? Getting together to celebrate generosity by giving! We give all our money to the stores so why not give to help out a great cause. Last year we raised $2500 for the children [...]

The day after Thanksgiving

I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving yesterday. I was hosting this year which took up a lot of time.  It was hard to keep up with everything and keep blogging.  I'll give you the short version of the holiday.  On Wednesday night, we had a little get together with some friends.  I didn't get [...]

GO HARD – Hug a Runner

Go hug a runner because it's time to Go HARD.  It's Globally Organized Hug A Runner Day!  Last year, I missed out but this year I got in lots of hugs! I told you running makes me want to hug people! These are some of my favorite people but not all. So don't get offended [...]

Today I ran a half marathon.  This was one that wasn't on the schedule.  It was kind of last minute and it was a race I had never done before.  Last week I ran a bridge so it's not that bad of an idea.  The race was only a hour and some change away so [...]
