Good morning!! After yesterday’s Debbie Downer of a race report, I thought I would get my South Lakes 10K race report up to add some positivity back into this little blog. On Sunday I ran the South Lakes 10K in Reston, Virginia. I had signed up for this race awhile back, not knowing if I’d … More Race Report: South Lakes 10K
Good morning! Two weeks ago I did my second ever triathlon, the Richmond Multisports Pink Power Triathlon in Midlothian, Virginia. The triathlon is an all women’s, beginner-friendly (in fact, there were 140 first-timers there which was awesome) just outside of Richmond. I’m just now getting around to writing the race report because I needed some … More Race Report: Pink Power Sprint Triathlon
Happy Tuesday! Today I’m linking up with Erika, April and Patty for Tuesdays on the Run Link up. Today’s topic: Running Bras aka my support system.

Good morning! I’m currently enjoying some time in northern Virginia at my mom’s house while Tyler is off on a work trip. It’s just so gorgeous here and as hot and humid as it is already today, nothing beats the country air.

Monday: 5 miles, 54 min, 10 seconds. This was supposed to be week … More Smuttynose Half Training: Week 4
Ah fall racing. Perfect weather-cool, crisp air but the sun still warms you up, it’s my favorite running season. The thought of munching on a post-race/long run warm apple cider doughnut or pumpkin anything (except spiced latte-yuck!) is making my mouth water right now. I’m linking up with April, Erika and Patty today for Tuesdays … More TotR: Fall Race Schedule
Good morning! Last week’s training was a bit different because I was on vacation in Seattle/Friday Harbor and didn’t return home until yesterday, so I didn’t really have any set scheduled workouts except I needed to get in three runs. Monday: rest day….spent by walking roughly 13 miles around the city. Not all at one … More Smuttynose Half Training: Week 3

Good morning from Seattle! I’m busy enjoying a week away from the hot and humid mid-Atlantic in one of my favorite cities, so I’m just checking in with a quick recap of Smuttynose Half training, week 2!
