Transformation Tuesday: 6.2 on 7/4

I’d hoped to do the Firecracker 10K, but registration logistics didn’t work out and I still needed to earn this US Road Running I Run for Bling medal** that came in the mail earlier this week. It was gorgeous and I Keep Running

Review: Running Like a Girl

this may be the quintessential “don’t judge a book by its cover”, or, by its title. When I first stumbled on it, I disregarded it as probably patronizing. The “Bridget Jones-like writer” endorsement from The Washington Post didn’t really help matters. I Keep Running

RunTheYear / GoTheDist 2017 Halfway Point

Whooah, we’re half way there…Take my hand and we’ll make it, I swear…Livin’ on a prayer It seems like just yesterday I was setting my 2017 goals and now we’re at the year’s halfway mark. I thought I had a Keep Running

#4x5KChallenge: Week 2/3

amazing what a difference two weeks makes. Both after work, same lunch. Weather slightly cooler, but not enough to make a difference I wouldn’t think. I didn’t set out to do a 5K, but wanted to go for a run Keep Running

Turtles Run 5 Miles

so the race that I couldn’t make up my mind about? It was this morning. Once the forecast changed from rain, I decided why not? I’ve run a longer distance with less mileage under me, and I finished. It might Keep Running

letdown run… or maybe not

I’ve known since early March that I can’t run on a full stomach. Found that one out after trying to run after dinner one day. Nope. I generally do manage OK running after work with the latest snack about 4PM Keep Running

#GoTheDist May 2017

so we’ve established that the Saunter is good for steps. I’m really grateful for it because otherwise, May was off from April. Even with the Saunter, May was off. April was 465,416 / 202.87 miles walked with only two days Keep Running

Stepping Out on April

so what happens when you have a 30+** day streak that averages nearly 15K steps? You set a record in March and then obliterate it in April. No final count yet as April has a few hours left but thanks Keep Running
