Running With a Purpose.

March 19, 2014

5 Comments

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 […]

My Brother-in-law, My Friend…or is it the other way around?

I wrote this blog on August 3, 2013. But I haven’t posted it. I don’t know why. I just haven’t. But I also haven’t run like I was and I don’t know if it has anything to do with this. So I’m going to post and get this out and get back to running. I’m […]

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” […]

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 […]

I saw a Facebook post by a friend “I need to get out and run this weekend or I’m going to put my shoes away so I don’t have to look at them”. So I invited myself. I told her I would want to go run with her…but not “with” her because her ass is […]

So far this has been an amazing year. I signed up with Team in Training and made some AMAZING friends and walked away with some solid friendships. The entire experience was simply incredible. My plan is to return as a mentor. And train with some first timers. I never imagine I would have had this […]

Bye Bye Gallstones–I’ll miss you. Maybe.

So I had my gallbladder surgery. I assumed that “outpatient” meant quick recovery. I also assumed I’d be back in my running shoes by Saturday, which is in 2 days. Nope. First of all, “outpatient” means no hospital care. Nothing to do with recovery time. And I won’t be getting into my running shoes on […]

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 […]

Rewriting History….or Creating the Future??

EIGHTEEN DAYS. I’ve been waiting for this day for six years. Or have I? My first half marathon was a disaster. It was all uphill, even on the flat part. And when I got back home, the uphill became a steep climb that lasted me five years. I have been doing sooooooo much reflecting in […]

“I Ran 10 Miles of Hills Today”

There are 5 Saturdays in September and I was dreading the first four. The long runs! If you have read my beginning blog–then you know that I’ve never trained for a half marathon and never ran longer than 5 miles. I may have done 6 a couple times. 7 maybe once. I just completed my […]
