How do you make it happen? You just decide to do it.

This is a lesson I've learned a time or two. This spring, I've been running at a slower pace than normal. I've been wondering why I can't get back to a faster pace. Even my 5K pace is slower than at other times when I've been in the same t... Read more
Train like a beast, eat like a beast...

That seems to be the mode I'm in. I can't seem to shake the bad mood I've been in lately, so I've been pouring it into my workouts. Heavy music, heavy intensity. It's been fun, and feels great but my wrist and knee are feeling it. I should be ta... Read more
Now is not the time to falter...

I'm really, really struggling this week. I'm just not in the right mental place. I've had a difficult time focusing at work, my nutrition has not been great, and the kids have been driving me crazy. (I only have one, but I take another one on in... Read more

12 Miles Down
Monday, April 07, 2014 2 comments
I did my 12 mile long run on Friday. I actually went into my schedule (self-made) on Thursday and restructured it. I'm ahead of schedule and didn't want to peak too soon and start tapering, as my half isn't until April 26. So I planned to run on... Read more
How things have changed since the Joplin Tornado

I live in tornado alley and always have. Right now I live only a few miles from Joplin, which was hit by a bad tornado in 2011. The evening it hit I knew severe weather was coming, but I was training for a marathon and had 9 miles to run. My tho... Read more

Here's to My Off Week...
Tuesday, March 25, 2014 2 comments
It looks like I'm going to have a really off week. I have a girls weekend coming up, so I'd already scheduled myself to not have a long run this weekend. I still have a month until my half and I ran 11 miles last Friday. I'm in good shape there.... Read more
The best NSV!

Probably the number one reason that I started to get healthy a few years ago was my daughter. She was about two and starting to eat "real food." She was starting to eat the food I was eating, sometimes straight out of my hand. Nothing puts more ... Read more

Friday I had the 10 mile run. 10 was a big deal because it's been the hurdle I've needed to jump to get back into running half marathons but for some reason couldn't seem to break the barrier. I started out Friday battling a migraine, which wasn... Read more
Just when you're about to chuck it...

The holiday weight is off. For weeks now, my scale has been hanging out around the same number that I've been around for the past two years. I felt like chucking it all. I'll see the numbers dip a bit after long runs (obviously, I know it's wate... Read more
Struggles with Half Marathon Training
Monday, March 10, 2014 0 comments
The good: I haven't run that much in the past couple of years and I'm still able to complete my long runs without too much trouble. Relatively speaking. I can run them without stopping to walk. Friday's long run was 9 miles. I can't remember the... Read more

And then there was the gingerbread incident...

A Gingerbread House in March? How does that happen? My former mother in law sent a kit home with my daughter recently. It was probably marked down post-holiday stuff. I gave it to my ex with strict instructions to make it at HIS house with ... Read more
