ZOOMA – Coming Soon!

I cannot believe that ZOOMA Annapolis is almost here.  It feels like ages ago that I applied to be a race ambassador and was accepted!  And well, race week is here!  I swear, I love this race but this race must not love me.  Last year, I almost didn’t run because of some family issues that interfered with my training.  And this year, I have to say, with the stress of work and the move, my lack of training has {Read More}

Giveaway! Want to be a SPARTAN?

Disclaimer:  This race entry is provided by Reebok Spartan Race. One of my running bucket list items is to run an obstacle course race.  Yes, that means a run with fire, mud, rope climbs, water hazards, etc.  I have one friend that assured me that it is “fun” and he competes in these types of races on a regular basis.  That being said, I’m still not entirely convinced.  And, I am such a weenie, that I have yet to put one on my race {Read More}

Life Update: Celebrations and the Unknown

Every time I look at the calendar, another month is whizzing by… After work on Friday night, I flew to Florida to celebrate the middle school graduation of my little brother.  He had no idea I was coming so it was a great surprise!  Some look at me like I’m crazy for flying down to celebrate a middle school graduation but I think that it is important to recognize educational milestones, especially very impressionable youngsters.  Since I don’t have the {Read More}

Race Recap: DC Race for the Cure 5k

Saturday, I ran the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in DC.  This race snuck up on me!  I always drag convince my friend Niki to run races with me and this was the first time she asked me to run a race.  How could I say no? The 8am start was really nice for a change.  I didn’t have to set my alarm too early which always makes me happy.  I was disappointed there was no bag check at {Read More}

We Run DC: 13.1

Finally!  Here’s my Nike Women’s Half Marathon DC recap from April 28th! As I do with all my DC races, I woke up very early to hop on the Metro and ride into DC.  I met a really great runner on the way in and that made the metro ride fly by!  We got off and we had no issues  walking to the start. I quickly made use of the porta potties and dropped off my gear at the bag {Read More}

New Goals!

To start off the new year, I wrote a post about my goals for the year.  I wanted to update you all on my progress and set some new goals for myself as we head into the summer. Goal #1. BE KIND TO MY BODY: I stink at this.  I am keeping this as my number one goal because I do not stretch, ice, do yoga and foam roll nearly as regularly as I would like and it shows.  My IT {Read More}
