So I had an emotional afternoon. Actually it’s been an emotional month but it hasn’t hit me till today. I thought I was going to be okay. But my heart really hurt today. I did the only thing I know how to do when I feel this way. I ran. Even with a sore knee. […]

Running With a Purpose.

I run on purpose. However lately it seems like running has fallen by the wayside. Running seems a bit hard and if you know me at all…you know I’m a scaredy cat and my threshold for pain is NIL. I am an instant gratification kind of girl. I want one run to build upon the […]

In June of 2004, I was at work. It was another regular day. Nothing extraordinary happening. Except I hadn’t cleaned my house and my parents were coming that weekend and the only time I had to clean was at midnight. And then I had to be in Santa Clarita the next morning, meaning I had […]

So this weekend I went to complete another “resolution race”. The weekend ended up being a huge lesson in priorities. How does running alter my life in so many different ways?! The last time I did this race, it was in 2009 and my time was 2:31:25. That was the time to beat and I […]

Today is a new year. It didn’t really come with all the hype and anticipation previous years came with. I have a few resolutions, all of them having nothing to do with weight loss—and all of them having to do with LOVE. This year, for whatever reason, has come quietly. I did not go out […]

So I went to the doctor and he took X-rays and it turns out I have a bone spur and that caused some hip strain on the opposite hip and he suggested I get physical therapy for four weeks and learn how to stretch as well as learn strengthening exercises and take a daily “ibuprofen” […]

Dear Dad, I don’t even know where to begin. There are so many things on my mind. All my childhood memories are scattered and mixed up with my adult memories. One time I wrote you a long letter, and to be honest with you, I don’t remember exactly what I said but I do remember […]

So yesterday I showed up for a trail race I wasn’t sure I was ready to do or even wanted to do. My recovery from the gallbladder surgery has kept me OFF the road more than on. And I haven’t been running 4x a week like I was. PLUS I have had some heel and […]

So we are tapering. My legs feel restless and at night when I try to sleep, my legs want to move. I have been sleeping fantastically while running but the past few days….I am feeling like I need to be MOVING. The other night when I couldn’t fall asleep…I went back out to the livingroom […]
