working out

I'm excited for a couple of things coming up, but for me to really enjoy those things I have to be healthy and strong.  I've got Marine Corps Marathon in October and I never thought I would have the chance to run that race so I want to make sure I make it through all [...]

At the beginning of the summer Willie started this water drinking thing because he felt like he wasn't getting enough.  He started doing it so of course I jumped on it too.  I just didn't use that annoying app that has reminders to drink all the time.  (Truth: Every time that sucker went off I [...]

Happy August everyone!  It's the start of a new month which means anything is possible.  Start thinking about the things you hope to accomplish this month. Yesterday was my momma's birthday!  It was kind of a chill day for her.  My  momma likes to celebrate occasions with food which is hard for Willie and I [...]

It was a big weekend because I did my 20 miler on Saturday.  Yesterday was a rest day.  Rest days are important to give your body a recharge.  It may sound funny coming from me because most people don't think I take a rest, but I know when my body needs a rest.  Always remember [...]

This morning started off very early for me.  It's the day in every marathon training plan people look at and think..."20 miles is a long way to go without someone cheering you on."  Well today was my day.  Honestly, I was skeptical about completing all 20 miles in the Texas heat and humidity but I [...]

Good mid-morning my readers.  I hope everyone is having a great day because it's FRIDAY.  The weekend has arrived!  I was supposed to be in San Jose for Blogher but I had a little incident last weekend.  I thought it would be better on my pocket book if I stayed home this weekend.  It's a [...]

I'm late posting this morning because I was sidetracked. I hate it when that happens. On Saturday night, I ran El Scorcho. It's a race that typically starts at midnight but if you were doing the 50K option, you had the choice to early start. You have until the sun comes up to finish the [...]

I don't have much to report from the weekend. I've enjoying the weekends of not doing much because I was on the constant move earlier in the year. I also know I'm going to be on the constant move towards in the fall too. I'm taking the time to enjoy summer. Only bad thing, I [...]

Failing at recovery

This shouldn't be an issue. I'm on Team Chocolate Milk. I should be mastering recovery, but I'm failing. I noticed after I ran the half marathon on Sunday that I was a bit more beaten up than usually. I just figured it may have been due to the fact I ran the back half of [...]

Five Things On Friday

This week has been a little bit more laid back than last week. I feel like last week was a lot of prepping and this week has been a little bit less of that. That doesn't mean it hasn't been busy though. When the blog posts don't come frequently, you can pretty much assume I'm [...]
