Again
I feel like I've started at the beginning so many times that there's not really any point to a "starting over" post.  Actually, at this point, I'm not sure there's any point to any post at all, since a year of radio silence (or however the heck long it's be...

Kicking into High Gear
When I signed up for NorthCoast 24 in 2014, it was a "What the heck am I doing?" kind of moment.  It sounded fun (as much as running is ever fun for me), and I thought, why not.  Bucket list kind of thing, right?   Afterwards I quit running entirely and jus...

Sunny Days
I'm really good at deciding to do things.  I'm less good at following through.   We've all heard that the road to hell is paved with good intentions, right?  Well, for me it's not so much hell as fat and lazy town.  Although, according to my Fitbit, I've be...

Holes Filled In (not dirty!)
When we last left our heroine in the fall of 2014, she had just completed the North Coast 24 Hour Endurance Run   and then ... well, then she fell off the face of the blogging planet, only to return a few days ago with a "Oh, hey.  How's it?"   What dark my...

1.8
I got home from work last night (see, I told you a lot had happened recently) and I was so tired and cranky that I nearly just plopped down on the couch and gave in to a severe case of "I don't give a crap."  But I'd told friends I was going to go for a run...

The Real Slim Shady
After basically quitting running back in September, I arrived in the New Year even more unhealthy and lumpy than I was before.  Which, if I'm perfectly honest, is kind of how I've started every New Year since I've had kids.  I mean, I've never been 300 lbs ...

Starting Over
Man, it's dusty in here.  Lots of cobwebs build up when you don't post for nearly 4 months.  Also true for running.  Lots of cobwebs. Or something. So a ton has happened, and yet nothing has changed - or maybe things have changed, but things are still the s...

Cleveland Rocks
Take 170 runners, a few dozen volunteers, a bunch of friends, relatives, and puppy dogs, and put them in a park in Cleveland on a sunny Saturday, and what do you get?  If you're lucky, you get the awesomeness that is the North Coast 24-Hour Endurance Run . ...

I have been soooooo tired lately.   Is 35 the new 55?  Some days it feels that way.  I think I could sleep for about 20 hours if someone let me.  As it is, I got to sleep in this morning and didn't get up until 9:30.   That may be a record for me (since hav...

More Thoughts On ES6
After getting some sleep, lancing a few blisters (ew), and looking over the preliminary results from yesterday's Endless Summer 6 Hour Run , I realized that there's another blog post I need to write. Yesterday's post  gave the bare bones, "this is what happ...
