half-marathon

This past weekend was a busy one.  My littlest brother graduated from high school. I'm very proud of him. I know he will do great things with his life and will see amazing things. Graduating high school is such an important step in life and I know he will make the decisions that are right [...]

Remember in February when I did The Biggest Loser Run Walk in Mobile, AL? We ended up doing that race because the Beaumont date was moved. But guess what? The series is coming to my town on May 3rd and there's still chance for you to come! It really bums me out that we can't [...]

This weekend was full of races.  On Saturday, I ran the Zooma Women's Texas Half Marathon in Bastrop, TX! We're all crazy. Half marathon on Saturday, 10 miler on Sunday. We had to get up super early to make it to the race but when the sun came up we were all optimistic. Missy was [...]

I'm a racing fool!  I like the energy and it keeps me motivated to run!  Sometimes I can just go out there and do it and other times I need people screaming at me to keep going.  It's what works for me.  The Biggest Loser Run Walk series is going across the country for these [...]

Excuse me for this being late, I was too lazy to blog yesterday. When my daily mile report came out yesterday it was all kinds of wrong. NO ONE should work out that much unless they are training for something and I AM NOT training for anything in particular. On Sunday I ran my 14th [...]

Santa Hustle complete

Today I finished my 14th half marathon of they year.  No time to really talk about it that will come tomorrow.  But know it is done and enjoy the pictures. We got cool shirts but... Too bad it was too hot and I had to strip at mile 6. Glad I wore a tank top [...]

On Sunday I ran my 13th half marathon of 2013 in Birmingham, AL at the Magic City Half Marathon and 5K, all apart of Ruben Studdard Celebration Weekend. It was very cold on race morning, something like 28 degrees and it was very windy! I had taken two rest days because I was driving and [...]

It's soo nice to be able to run a local race. I wish we had more of them. I love being able to run with my friends and feel like I belong. I've spent a lot of time running this year and I've come to appreciate the local runs a lot more because of the [...]

How did I get into running?

It's question and answer time and this week I decided to answer a running question since I'm becoming a crazy runner with all these back to back races.  I'll be heading out of town for Rock n Roll Denver and I will be running with Got Chocolate Milk Team Refuel.  But the question is: how [...]

I finished my 8th half marathon of 2013 yesterday! It was a really great experience. I did set out with a pretty lofty goal of trying to finish in 2:15 which is more than doable for me, but I forgot one thing: this WAS THE HILLIEST RACE I'VE EVER RUN! The race was about three [...]
