One Race a Month Update: March

Spring is my absolute favorite time of year for running. There is finally a warm breeze in the air, and all the trees are starting to look green again. Speaking of green, for my March race, I chose to do the Publix Atlanta Half Marathon on St. Patrick’s Day. The last time this race fell…

12 Reasons to Go for a Run

I have been struggling to find the motivation to run lately, which has led me to take a break from writing as well. While I may not always have a reason to write, I know there are always plenty of reasons to go for a run. Without further ado, here is a list of 12…

A Race a Month Update: February

A couple of weeks ago I ran the Hot Chocolate 15K as my February race. This was my 2nd time running this race, and I must say the weather conditions were much more runner-friendly than the last time. When I ran this race a couple years ago, it was almost canceled due to the weather….

A Race a Month Update: January

In January, I was reminded just how much I love cold weather running. I could do without the ridiculously short days and running in the dark and all the rain we have seen, but there is still something about running in the cold that makes me feel powerful, as cheesy as that sounds. I complain…

Training Plan and my New TRX System

This week, a cold kept me from running for a few days, and, naturally, I was feeling a little blue on Sunday when I still did not feel up to running 12 miles in freezing temperatures. There was a silver lining because I signed up for my next half marathon, the Publix Atlanta Half Marathon…

How This Princess Lost Her Crown

Yesterday was a successful long run day. We have picked back up on our marathon/half marathon training because the hubby and I know we want to sign up for another marathon; we just are not sure when and where. In addition to putting off our 10 miler and researching all the marathons happening over the…

2018 Race Recap

This post is a little delayed, but I wanted to recap 2018 with a look back at some of my favorite races. Last year was packed full of races of all distances, and even though I did not meet my goal to do one race per month, it still feels like it was a successful…

Embrace the Lows

In running and life, we experience all kinds of ups and downs. In running especially, I believe that you must embrace the low to feel the high. This weekend we got a LOT of rain. Since I don’t own a treadmill and I do not currently have a gym membership, all the miles I put…

Facing Fears

I know I talk about marathons a lot on here, but ’tis the season! Going into this last marathon, I realized that I did not experience the dread and fear that I used to get. I remember thinking a couple of weeks ago how strange it felt to be confident and ready for marathon #4….
