Croom Fools Run

Croom Fools Run

A couple weeks ago, I made a last minute decision to run the Croom Fools Run 16-miler. Though I’ve been running, I haven’t been doing what I need to for my other upcoming races so I figured a race would force me to get it […]

Doggies 4 Duchenne 5k

Doggies 4 Duchenne 5k

I ran the Doggies 4 Duchenne 5k last weekend. First 5k I’ve run in two years. As an ultra runner, it’s hard for me to justify paying to run 3.1 miles but I love this race and the charities it supports; The Humane Society at […]

Upcoming Races

Upcoming Races

It’s time to get my ass in gear. In the past two years I’ve done a mere two races; croom zoom 100, a dnf, and then a year later the Croom Zoom 50k (pretty much untrained) as the only course revenge that I could muster. […]

Still Streaking

Still Streaking

My streak has yet to break. Thirty nine days straight of at least two miles, 50 sit ups and 50 pushups. I’ll spare you the daily details on every pathetic little run or walk. Yes some days I’ve resorted to merely walking two miles but […]

The Vegan Skinny

The Vegan Skinny

I had to share this recent Facebook post by my boyfriend Don. I am giddy madly in love with this guy and so proud of what he has achieved. Not in terms of weight loss but rather the personal moral satisfaction he has found by […]

Ellie

Ellie

This is Ellie. She’s insane. Certifiably! She’s a 4(ish) year old border collie pittie mix with an energy level that is ALL border. Ellie came with my boyfriend. She was given to him by another dog trainer who “didn’t have time to give her what […]

Streak Week: 2

Streak Week: 2

I’m still streaking. Haven’t missed a day yet. I have to admit there have been a few times that I had absolutely no motivation to run but I don’t like to lose so the competition side of this is keeping me in the game. I did […]

Little Red Wagon: A Long Haul Recap

Little Red Wagon: A Long Haul Recap

This past weekend I paced and crewed my friend Sandy at a 100-mile attempt. She ran this same race, Long Haul, last year as her first hundred and I was honored to be a part of that crew as well. She’s had a couple rough […]

Streaker

Streaker

On January 1st I started “streaking” with a group of friends. No not THAT kind of streaking though sometimes in the brutal Florida heat it’s tempting! A required minimum two mile run, 50 sit ups and 50 pushups every single day. Though it’s mostly a […]

Mommy Needs A New Pair Of Shoes

Mommy Needs A New Pair Of Shoes

The first few years of my running I ran in Asics. I can’t say I tried many different shoes but that’s what I somehow landed in and that’s what I stayed in. Until I found Newtons. At the time, all the talk on the street […]
