Chi Town 10k Race Recap

      9 Comments on Chi Town 10k Race Recap

It all started the night before.  I guess I should know better but I’ve eaten pesto lately with (little to) no problems but that wasn’t the case.  I felt my stomach churn.  I should have known better.   Morning came way too soon.  It was early, I was tired, and my dinner proved to be troublesome.  My body just felt… Read more »

Can I take a moment to brag? Not necessarily brag but share a new accomplishment for a me; one of those moments when you realize your hard work is paying off.  I had that moment yesterday.

Okay, first of all, how did no one notice this last week?  Did you still not notice? Someone get me (and maybe you!) another cup of coffee…we’re LONG past August…! 😉 Second, can you believe it’s officially FEBRUARY?!  January seemed to fly by for me, which was both good and bad I guess.  I’m definitely still working towards living my… Read more »

      4 Comments on Mezamashii Run Project

It was about 3 1/2 years ago when I first decided I wanted to start running.  Looking back, I may have been out of my mind.  I had been diagnosed with “severe” asthma and had my second knee surgery about 9 months prior.  I had never been a runner but I wanted to be one and that’s what was important….
