“No one said it would be easy, but they said it would be worth it.”

I hear people say, “running must be easy for you.” Let me let you in on a little secret from every runner on the entire planet: Running is not “easy”. For anyone. If it were easy, everyone would do it. Sitting on the couch is easy. Netflix binging is easy. Eating a pint of ice… Continue reading “No one said it would be easy, but they said it would be worth it.”

Well, that was fun!

On Saturday, we ran in the Derby Mini Marathon in Louisville, Kentucky for the 3rd year in a row! On Friday night we headed to the Expo...

Half Marathon Training Begins!

Training season is back people. I'm not going to lie, I've missed it. Maybe it's my personality type (enneagram 2w3; ESFJ, Blue) but I love structure and having a goal.

New year, new goals

I'm sorry. I've been pretty quiet on here for the past few weeks. I didn't send Christmas cards. I didn't go caroling or sign up for bell ringing with the Salvation Army. But you know what I did?

Seriously, I know you're terrified that you've accepted the challenge, registered, verbally committed, etc. If you're like me, the decision was made a year in advance so I had a WHOLE YEAR to worry and panic :).
