Motivation From The Past

      2 Comments on Motivation From The Past

There’s a level of motivation missing for me lately.  I’m sure there are a few different reasons behind this but regardless if I can find something that motivates me to get out the door, I’m going to do it.  And on Tuesday that meant running the track at my old middle school. I set out to do GPP’s Run +… Read more »

Fitness Friday – Check!

      3 Comments on Fitness Friday – Check!

I have to admit, I’m exhausted. I don’t really want to complain but I’m very excited for my coworker to return from her trip tomorrow and allow me to get back into my normal routine and have her additional support around the office.  And while she’ll be back tomorrow, I do still have to get through the next couple of… Read more »

A Run is a Run is a Run

      9 Comments on A Run is a Run is a Run

You may have noticed that I’ve been running more lately and while they haven’t been long runs, they have been more frequent, including back to back days. While for some that may not be something spectacular, for me it’s a sign of good things to come.  A sign that my lungs are getting stronger and I’m not allowing my asthma… Read more »

Thursday Thoughts: Sunday Morning Run

I wish I could properly explain what happened on my run Sunday morning but I’m not sure I can get the words right. You see it wasn’t an easy run.  It wasn’t one of those runs where I felt like I could finish.  In fact, I kept trying to figure out if I could talk myself into shortening my run… Read more »

Fitness Friday (After a Long Day)

      10 Comments on Fitness Friday (After a Long Day)

Thursdays are the longest days ever…E.V.E.R.  You may think I’m over-reacting but when I leave my house at 6:15am and don’t get home until 8pm, I think I’m allowed to over-react.  Despite a gym/lunch break in the middle, I spend the rest of my time at work and as much as I like my job, after nearly 12 hours working,… Read more »

Fitness Friday & LockLaces

      19 Comments on Fitness Friday & LockLaces

Except for when I’m sick, you’ve never seen me take so many rest days.  That just proves it was a huge week for me! A 1/2 marathon not only requires months of training but it requires rest before AND after and that was exactly what this week was about.  But I have to admit, I got the itch to start… Read more »

The Outcome

      40 Comments on The Outcome

Out of 1472 runners, I finished 796. While I told no one my goal finish or planned pace (really I just wanted to finish), I finished a good 8 minutes faster than I was planning to pace myself. So…how did it go? It started bright and early with my go-to breakfast of whole english muffin, peanut butter, banana and coffee… Read more »
