December! Recovery Month? Or is it...

What a start to a running month! I was thinking it would be a nice, long recovery period! Hopefully for most of us, it will be... Me? I signed up for the PF Chang's Rock and Roll Half on January 17th in Phoenix! I think it was the RnR bling that did me in... Oh well... Keeps me healthy!

Record your exercise in a comment! Thanks everyone!

What a end to our year as a group! Great mileage!
Congratulations to TinaGirl and Susan! What an achievement!

A Scary Weekkend! Good Thing We Can Run!

I owe Lizzie Lee 6.42 miles! I promise I'll catch it up next week.

Have fun and record your run! I'll be doing my long run as Elvis on Halloween!

Well... I see it wasn't very scary for any of you!

So, as a treat... Here I am running a training long run (10 miles) in my Elvis costume!

Good luck everyone. Those with competitions? Put that training to the test! Go for it!

Next weekend? I will be in Los Angeles! Family fun, but with a twist! Two of these family members will be running the Las Vegas Rock'n'Roll Half-Marathon with me! A long run is in the cards, I bet!

Mostly, though? Have fun while you train!

Great start to a month! I did a hike over the weekend... Started at 9,120 feet and a mile and a quarter later we were at 1,120 feet... It hurt going and coming, but a good feeling knowing that I could do it!

Sweet Ride

OMG today I had the best run. 7 miles or so of bliss. The first mile is always a little tedious but after that I felt like I was riding on a magic carpet. Love love loved today's run. I was pushing it so it wasn't effortless but with every mile I seemed to get a little faster. I almost wish I had my gar min but I'm thankful for this time to do what I feel and not have to worry about the times or splits.

Today was a wonderful run. Today was one to remember... especially in a few weeks when I'm full tilt into marathon training again. I hope this was what I needed to get my Mojo back. It has been deeply lacking for the last few weeks... or months.

Friday, July 31, 2009

August Already?

My Blog

A quick note regarding my blog. Usually, you can find it at but it has been disabled. It seems that Google bots that search for SPAM BLOGS have determined that my blog fit all of the criteria for a Spam Blog. I have requested human review and an unlock from Google.

I am in the process of moving it to my own domain. I will let you know when things have settled out and I have an address.

I have received a word of advice from a friend. "You get what you pay for," he said.

I have a new blog now!

Where did I get that name at?

From home, from work, but not from running. I am leaving for an event of passion for me. I am vacationing with the jeep and my running shoes in Moab, Utah.

So run, friends! Run!

Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend 2011

No, that's not a typo. 2011!

Last year I had an amazing experinecewhen I met Petra, Charlie and Melisa in Chicago. Our first blogger marathon meet up was pretty special.

I've been thinking that I would like to do it again. And create an opportunity for the bloggers to get together again.

What if you had a little warning? What if you had nearly two years, 23 months to plan your training, travel and vacation, just when you need an escape from the cold? Would you be interested in running either the Walt Disney World Half Marathon, Marathon or both?

Who's with me?

Friday, January 30, 2009

Into February!

- - - - - - - - -

Thanks for the updates! What a weekend! It did put us up and over the top!

How many miles for February, folks?

Remember to be active or you may be dropped from the chart!

Report your miles run or walked in the comments section!

Have a great exercise session!
