Throwback Thursday {link-up}

I am loving this Throwback Thursday link-up. I’ve been going through old posts and reading race re-caps. It’s been fun! Here is the re-cap of my very first half marathon, it’s also one of the first posts I wrote so it’s kinda blah. Not too many pictures and the paragraphs are all run together. It […]

Find your strong: Patriot Half Marathon recap

This race is in my blood it seems. I know how tough it is, but I love it because it was my first half.  I set out to run this race and get a PR. I have been training toward that goal and I know I have it in me. That being said, I did […]

Race recap: the (not) Too Hot to Handle!

Sunday was my first 15k race, the (not) Too Hot to Handle! By it’s name it should have been a warm and humid race. We had this crazy cold front come through Saturday which brought rain and cooler temps. It was welcomed with open arms! This also means that next year’s Too Hot to Handle […]

#GoalsCheck, weekend in review and giveaway!

A long run and a 4k!

Saturday was busy, busy! I am officially 2 weeks from Rock N’ Roll Dallas half marathon, so yesterday’s long run was 10 miles. Straight into the wind. And it was humid. It was a rough run. That was followed up by the Tap N’ Run 4k at 5PM. The weather here was threatening crazy storms […]

5k race, training and a new recipe!

Today’s 5k race was Ally’s one year running anniversary! She ran her heart out this morning, I’m so proud of her! Packet pick up was a breeze, they were extremely organized! She came in 2nd place in her age group. Still waiting on results, but her unofficial time was 27:53.    My training and 5k […]

Let’s get this party started!

Anyone heard of a 4k by Tap N’ Run? Well, I’m running it in Dallas next week and one of you lucky peeps will be running it with me!  Well, we might be walking since the “water” stops have beer instead! No worries, it’s a 4k, so that’s only 2.49 miles. Give me your best […]
