As Pam and I ran the Hot chocolate 15K together, I thought it would be fun to to have a he said/ she said type of recap. You can read my recap…here! Take it away, Pam! So, I had this harebrained idea back in the spring that this year I would run the Hot Chocolate... Read more »

No-Weigh Challenge update

A couple of weeks ago I started the No-weigh challenge with Steve and invited readers to join in on the fun. The rules are simple, we weighed in on the 12th and won’t or shouldn’t weigh in again until November 24th! We’re doing this on the honor system. So if  one of us caves and... Read more »

Either by letting the number dictate our mood, by obsessing over the number we get or constantly checking and weighing in. After some thought, we came up with a possible solution. Starting today, after our... Read more »

I’m not nervous, but I am anxious today. Actually, my mind is racing a bit. So bear with me as this post will jump around a bit. I woke up early and got my run in, 40:00 easy, zone 1. I got back around 5:15ish, crawled back into bed and fell asleep! Ha! Luckily I... Read more »

Things I know this year before the marathon that I didn't know last year

Last year, ignorance was bliss. I’ve talked about it. I knew last year it would be hard. But I didn’t really know. A time or two this year I’ve caught myself cringing a little, because I know how hard running a marathon can be. As I sit here 10 days before my second marathon, I... Read more »
