My last blog was about the Big Sur Marathon 3 months ago where I was registered for the Relay, but went on to finish the entire 26.2 as a training run for the "real thing" in San Francisco. Well, I did it!! I ran the SF Marathon with a 28 minu... Read more

I registered for the Big Sur Marathon relay months ago with some of my running friends. At the time I wanted to run the third leg of the race because it's the most challenging and the most scenic. As the race approached and I continued to push... Read more

I haven't written here since last spring. Yikes! Lots to catch up on. The top of my left foot was hurting after those two spring 5Ks. Not sure if I mentioned that because it wasn't exactly a running injury. A pair of new street shoes I boug... Read more

I ran the Mermaid Run yesterday and I am so glad I did. It was an all women race which I've never experienced before. I was racing this one for the girly t-shirt and the post race pancake breakfast. I had no idea that racing with only women w... Read more

For the past couple of years I've been deeply involved with a ministry called Theodyssey. The lessons I've learned there have been extremely valuable. They've even helped me with my running. I was cleaning off my desk today and came across a ... Read more

Last year, 5 weeks after starting Couch to 5K, I ran my first 5K at the Turkey Trot. This summer I had the bright idea of starting my kids on the Couch to 5K to run the Turkey Trot. Fortunately, my husband said he'd join us in the training bec... Read more

A year ago I wasn't a runner. I tried running on the treadmill at the gym once or twice, but it was hard and definitely not fun. That all changed last year at the Rock 'N Roll Half Marathon. I only went to cheer for my brother-in-law Gordon a... Read more

Yesterday was my last run before my half marathon. Unfortunately things haven't been going very well at all. I'm so glad I was able to experience that great 10.5 mile run that I wrote about in my last entry because my runs have been pretty rou... Read more

That's what was going through my mind this morning during the last mile of my longest run to date! What a wonderful Maker to design my body to release those oh so wonderful endorphins when I need them most. Today I ran 10.5 miles! I ran 9 mil... Read more

I did it! I finally raced my first 10K. My last race was a 5K on New Years Day and I had planned to race my first 10K back in February, but had to change the plan after I began having issues with my hip. This time my hip was just fine throug... Read more

All has gone well and I'm back to where I was before my break 3 months ago. I think I'm maintaining alignment in my pelvis because my hip pain has not returned. I ran 49 miles in April. My last long run was 6 miles. My last tempo run was 3... Read more
