MY 4TH MARATHON ~ CLEVELAND 2010

Yesterday was the BEST day!  Not only was I ABLE to run my 4th marathon but I was able to break my 4:19/20 curse (the past 2 marathons) with a new PR of 4:10.  The BEST part of the race was sharing it with my husband, kids & an awesome group of friends!  My friends Carla & Natalie ran their… Read more →

CAPITAL CITY HALF MARATHON 2010 ~ 3 Lessons Learned

It was a decent race today–fell 7 minutes short of my goal, but still a PR by a minute plus.  I struggled a little with some abdominal pain from mile 6 that I’ve been dealing with this past month (possibly my gallbladder)  but was able to push thru and even tried walking at 3 different times to see if it… Read more →

Preparing for my 4th marathon – Cleveland!

Since I didn’t want to see Cindy train solo for her appearance at the Boston Marathon, I made the decision to try my hand at running a spring full marathon & train with her (I usually run a 1/2 and I still plan to do that as well…2 weeks prior to the full!) The Cleveland Marathon is about 4 weeks… Read more →

STEAMTOWN MARATHON ~ Success vs. “The Wall”

BibRave Race Review   They say “The Steamtown Marathon Will Humble You”…they aren’t kidding! There is a reason why it’s the smallest field of runners of any U.S. Marathon! I also see why people do run it and why the field of runners grows each year. It’s an unbelievable experience…more than just a “marathon”. The weather was perfect! 50 some… Read more →
