All About a Summary (February 13-

Yes I’m a bit late with the summary.  Work got a little kinda sorta ca-ra-zay. After the gluttony of the previous foodie weekend and an almost healed foot, it was time to get my butt back in gear.  The runs were short but I wouldn’t call them easy.  With my spikes imparting a newfound sense… Continue reading All About a Summary (February 13-

I read a post on a Facebook page that I follow and the poster made an interesting statement: they said that all athletes are runners but not all runners are athletes.  Their reasoning was based on an obstacle course that they had recently participated in.  Along with the other competitors, there was an elite-level ultra… Continue reading So am I an Athlete Yet?

Race Report (a bit late)

If I Knew Then What I Know Now…

My previous post and the comments that I received (thank you everyone who commented which makes this whole blogging thing so much more fun) got me to thinking.  Kit is one thing, but what about the other things?  Like what would I do differently or what went well?  I am not an expert.  I have… Continue reading If I Knew Then What I Know Now…
