And now for something completely different…..
  Blog much? No, not really. So what’s been going on? Something that is TOTALLY NOT
RUNNING! After I ran a 50k at a 12 hour race last year and decided I
had zero interest in running the 50 mile race I had trained for, I kind of
found myself floundering. I h...

When one of my nephews was about 2 or 3, he was playing in a
fountain. He was so overwhelmed with pure joy and that all he do was scream FUN!!!!! That’s kind of how I felt for most of the race I did on
Saturday. I had a plan of running 31 miles during my 12...

Ready Set..... GO!!!!!
It’s been a weird year. Due to some hypothyroid stuff, the
last race I ran was in July 2015 and it was a half marathon that I knew I
shouldn’t be doing, but it was a great excuse to hang out with a friend on some
new trails for a few hours. Shortly after th...

A Much Needed Run Without a Ton of Running...
So, I’m in this place right now where I’m not really

doctor, and logical brain know that now is not...

I'm Sorry... But
I used to tell my husband that when he said, “I’m sorry, but…..”
that he wasn’t really sorry.   I volunteered at a race this weekend and all day I kept
thinking… OMG this is so fun, but…… It was fun. It was super satisfying and I got to spend the
day with t...

It's not JUST about running..... Thank god.
A couple of weeks ago I got an email from someone
asking to speak with me for an article… for the CHICAGO TRIBUNE! Once my brain
got over the initial shock and I began to process this idea, I of course
emailed back and said SURE! Then I became paralyzed wit...
