half-marathon

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 [...]

It's my favorite race of the year!  I love the Pleasure Island Bridge Half Marathon for many reasons but most importantly, it's just a great race with great people.  I run all over the country but it's nice to run the local races.  I'm so blessed that my community has two great local long run [...]

Sunday morning was the day to run long! This was a taper run for me because I planned on running the Marine Corp Marathon the following week. This was also a training run for Willie who is training for his first marathon in December. It was meant to be fun. My attitude for this race [...]

I was provided with a free bib to this race by the festival but all opinions are my own. Spoiler alert: This race was AWESOME! This race was one I put on my radar last year. I found out about it too late and I couldn't participate but I made sure it made the list [...]

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 [...]
