The history of the marathon

I am a runner.I log a handful of miles each week with my running group, register for a race every season, and bring my running shoes on every trip. I’ve completed countless 5k’s, two half marathons, and will be running my first Spartan race next month; but one distance I have never covered is the marathon. To me it seems like the holy grail of running distances that you have to reach for at least once in your lifetime but most likely once you taste it you’ll want to do it again. My reservations for running a marathon come from my job schedule....more

Run Away!

I like to run.I know a lot of you are rolling your eyes and moaning about how you don’t understand people who talk incessantly about their runner’s high.I know a lot of you are nodding and saying “Yeah. I know that feeling.”I completely understand you. Both of you.I think running was something that I didn’t truly appreciate until it was something that I couldn’t do without thinking about it.Through high school, I played a lot of soccer. That meant a lot of training which, loosely translated, means a lot of running....more

My journey back to running and racing

 I admit I’ve been lazy. As part of my training I hope post weekly about my progress.So how much did I run in the past year and a half? A lot: six halves (including a RunDisney Dumbo Challenge), countless 5ks and even a few 10ks. But something happened, I got burned out and sick. In November of 2014 after many doctors’ visits and tests they finally diagnosed me with mononucleosis. I’ll get into that later. But since November, I haven’t ran or raced that much....more

The Hills Are Alive: 2015 Run the Bluegrass Half Marathon in Review

 Run the Bluegrass was truly an EXPERIENCE! It was held March 28, 2015 in beautiful Lexington, Kentucky. My HB signed us both up for this race--more so of a surprise to me. I'll admit...I smiled when I received the confirmation in my inbox. The HB is a "Bling Chaser" (i.e., he runs for the shine, not the time--yes, that's his mantra)....more
