Leadwoman – Cowtown Marathon (2/24/19)

The week going into Cowtown was rough!  Madison made me do a recovery ride that Wednesday instead of what was on my schedule because I was just done.  The last minute massage from Cyril helped! Cowtown Marathon itself was so much fun for me!  I took my phone and had no expectations.  I ran some pretty solid splits and thankfully just stayed with Amy Clark most of the time (she was the pacer for the...

Leadwoman – the training schedule

I wrote my own schedule to begin with.  I absolutely HAVE to plan ahead.  I was teaching at TCU Spring semester.  I had to consider that LP started a new job and the girls schedules.  I needed to know, generally speaking, what my life was going to look like training and racing over the coming months.  I had coaches Gary Anderson, Madison Flowers and Steve Blackmon look at it.  None of them seemed to...

Leadwoman – training indoors

  Since I had been considering Leadwoman and the need to get better riding MTB, I knew I would have to do some training indoors through the winter and not wait until April when the weather was better like I pretty much did last time.  As I mentioned before, I had reached out to Madison Flowers in October to train at his studio, otherwise known as ‘The Cave.”  I’m not sure why they...

Leadwoman – Ragnar Tampa (12/8/18) and the official sign up

Ragnar came and went.  I had almost ran a marathon by the end of that weekend.  I got more practice running while sleep deprived and running at night with headlamps.  I met a great group of women that were so supportive of each other.  And my two besties were there too!  I mentioned to them I was still thinking about signing up for Leadwoman because the sign up was soon.  I even tried to recruit one...

Leadwoman – signed up for Cowtown marathon training

For Ragnar, I was going to run 4 legs (because we had one runner drop) between 4-7 miles each.  My legs were going to be around 1 p.m., 9 p.m., 4 a.m. and 11 a.m.  I needed to get my butt in gear.  So, I joined FWRUNCO’s Cowtown marathon training with Tamara Ogle and Gary Anderson heading it up.  I started with coach Jack in the 10-10:30 pace group and met a great group of new friends and some old...

Leadwoman – turned 40 and lost my dad

Back to 2016…my dad had landed in the hospital for a surgery in Houston that just didn’t go as planned.  He really never recovered.  Over the next 3 years, he became sicker and eventually passed away in December of 2018. I can remember when he was in the hospital in 2016 talking about my training for Leadville.  I don’t know if he ever quite understood why I did what I did.  But, he was...

Leadwoman – training began

I trained with the local R2R2R ladies through the summer.  Lots and lots of stairs at TCU stadium.  Lots of hiking including some night hikes.  Some running and MTB mixed in.  I also began bootcamp with Shawna Gibson to work on my strength and Aerial Yoga with Amanda Quintanilla to work on strength and flexibility.  Training was fun.  It was hot.  And there’s were lots of popsicles eaten that...
