More To Me Than Running


  Yesterday morning wasn’t so bad. My son woke up on his own and didn’t give me an issue getting out the door. The only minor problem we encountered was him blaming me for not putting all of the new pencils we bought over the break properly into his binder pencil pouches. Where was he Sunday […]

Not Ready To Put The Race Medals Away

Runner's World Hat Trick Race Medals

  I am up earlier than I would like to be but I have a feeling it’s because my body is convinced it is time to get ready for another race. Running three races in two days and riding buses in the predawn hours which take you from your car to the starting lines will do that […]

  I thought about skipping out on the What I Ate Wednesday fun this week because it is suddenly October 1st and we need to discuss some happenings. But…. WIAW is part of my routine and without my routine I feel all sorts of off-balance and I don’t want to be off-balance so I figured […]

Rosh Hashanah is a time for welcoming the new as well as a time for reflection. I finally made it a point to run a few hills on Tuesday just so I would feel a bit more mentally and physically prepared for the races at the Runner’s World Half & Festival.
