A few days ago, I posted a blog with my goals for December. The plan was to get in GREAT shape to start training for the Flying Pig. But, my leg has been hurting. Not like the stress fracture, but like it hurt right before the stress frac... Read more
My December Goals

I am making an honest effort to get onto Spark more frequently, and post stuff on my Spark Team Page (Flying Pig marathon). I plan to run the full marathon in May. However, I'm not signing up until April, because I want to make sure I can do t... Read more

OK, I haven't blogged for a while. Have been too busy remembering how much fun all the other non-running exercise can be once you get back into it. I was not allowed to run for 6 weeks. Well, I did not run. Not at all, until one day before m... Read more
Stress fractures mean no marathon for me!

I know I haven't been around. My life for the past two months has been crazy and hectic. Getting onto the computer for things that don't pertain to my job has been tough because we've been so busy here at our house! But anyway, because I ... Read more

I have been MIA, from Spark but not from training. I have been diligently training for the Columbus marathon, and have a serious question for those who have run multiple marathons. I have run 4, but always tapered for 3 weeks. Has anyon... Read more

Chicago R-n-R Half marathon was a lot of fun. I did NOT do well; in fact,it was my slowest half marathon ever. I just can't seem to "get" the half marathon. I mean, if I can split a 2:07 for the first half of a full, howcome my PR for the ha... Read more

Getting back on track

I admit that I have been MIA around here, but after looking at the video my DH made of us on the beach at Hilton Head, I DEFINITELY see the need to re-focus on weight loss. I mean, what was I thinking that I looked OK in a bikini??? So, h... Read more
A couple 5K's later...
Wednesday, June 02, 2010      2 comments

I ran two 5K's in two weeks. The first one was the first annual Forest Hills 5K. It was in the neighborhood where I grew up, to benefit the school district - an out and back, with a turn and another short out and back. I finished it in 33:39.... Read more

Did anyone catch the weather report for Ohio yesterday? Well, it was wet. Really wet. Like monsoon wet. Scary wet. We ran the Flying Pig in the rain. It rained before it started, while we were at the starting line, while we were running, w... Read more

Is a PR possible?
Monday, April 05, 2010      5 comments

I have been wondering this more and more lately. I went back through my paces in my running log, and on my Garmin, and it seems that I have pretty much left the 12 minute miles and have gone into the 11 minute miles. So, I'm starting to get ... Read more
Strides of March Race Report
Sunday, March 07, 2010      2 comments

Yep, I said it "race report." I ran a 10K yesterday. My time, although close to 20 minutes slower than my best, was still OK considering I was hurt and ran hurt for an entire year. I finished at 11:30 pace (exactly 11:30). It was the first r... Read more
