I signed up for Boston

I’ve been uninspired to write lately. My attitude has been bad and I’ve been grumpy. I made myself throw it all to the side and enjoy our vacation over the weekend but honestly I’ve been a little nasty. We went to Sonoma for a wedding and last minute decided to leave Marshall with my Grandma … more »

Do you have a Running BFF?

I met a new friend during the Carmel Half Marathon this year. Pre Fire Cracker 6 When I race, I almost always say something to other females who I pass or who pass me. (unless I’m dying in the last bit of a race and can’t find the energy!) I know they are working hard. … more »

I’ve been really anxious about the race … more »

Running Scared

For years I’ve done this. It dates back to high school. I got roped into running cross country my sophomore year. The day we had our first meet was a trial meet against our own teammates. That morning, I was so nervous, I cried. Not kidding. Over the next three years, I started getting nervous … more »
