The dirt Half of Half and Half
I tan the 6th annual Half and Half Marathon today, wisely opting for the trail half. I have done the double half (trail first then road) twice in the past, and 13.1 miles of pavement mostly flat after frolicking through the woods over hill and dale is a let...

POOP Trail Run
REALLY?? How can anyone NOT want to run a race with a name like that?? I shared the link with friends and there was a lot of interest, but Johnna, Betsy, an I were the only ones (I think) who made the trip from Tulsa to poop in the woods with friends. Johnn...

Ghost Towns, Old Bridges, and Unexplored Trailz
I'm still carrying around extra Thanksgiving gluttonous fat (but the pecan pie was SO GOOD, and it WAS reduced at whipped cream) and I ran Thursday, Friday, and Saturday--not long, but my legs said enough was enough. So I decided to find a ghost town or two...

Turkey and TATURs--the 12 year
I'm finally getting around to catching up on blogging as of late. Turkey and TATURs was a few weeks ago and Dana and I ran as a team and tackled the 25K. I suppose I had enough base left what with my lackadaisical training lately, and Dana had a lot of desi...

Pumpkin Holler Hunnerd 2017 a few pics and words

Hanging out at Lapland--Heartland 1100 id station
I worked the Heartland 100 Lapland aid station this past weekend. Twice in the past few years, Dana and I have manned this stop set at mile 16 and mile 84 on the out and back jaunt in the Flint Hills in Kansas. This year, however, Dana could not make the tr...

Blue Whale run
Each year--usually in the fall, a group of RunnersWorld friends assemble on 11th Street aka Route 66 and make a trek eastward toward Catoosa to see the Blue Whale. It's a 31-mile round trip and is a good training run for an ultra that someone may or may not...

**
Do Wacka Do was this past Saturday. I have missed only one--I think. This is one of my favorite runs, and if I'm counting right, I have only missed one. This year, I had grand plans of running the 50 Mile. I had my mobile aid station right by the path into ...
