The Day Someone Asked The Right Question

Before I start, I should back up to explain how I’ve come out of running retirement. 🙂 With the Boston Marathon experience in 2013, I wanted to keep in running shape to do Boston again in 2014 to go back and experience it the right way.  During the year, it reminded me 1) how much I enjoy running and 2) that I can be okay at it if I just train correctly. After Boston 2014, I decided to keep on...

Boston: The Redemption

    Some of you may not know how I qualified for both 2013 and 2014 Boston Marathons, so I’ll start there.  In 2011, after an attempt to qualify at Marathon to Marathon in October, I failed.  However, I FINALLY broke the 4:00 mark and ran a 3:58.  As crazy as it sounds, for me, that was the best thing that could have happened.  I have been running 4:00 marathons since the beginning, but...

Bandera 50K Race Report….it’s a long one!

The strange thing about Bandera, unlike any other race is I never got nervous about it.  I think I knew going in it was going to be a long day no matter what and I wasn’t racing it, so I just never got nervous about it.  I never questioned whether I was going to finish (like I’m freaking out about the 50 miler as I write this!)  It was pretty much just another race.  Because life is so hectic for...
