I really wanted a more clever title but the name sort of says it all.  I'm not entirely sure where to begin, except to say that I finished the race and that's an accomplishment. Yes, it took me longer than I had planned but I learned a lot and just have to keep reminding myself that patience is a virtue and that I just need to keep training and running and trying!

Anyway--here's a brief rundown of the race.  

The trail was COVERED in 10-11" of snow.  Powdery,…


I have officially dubbed the shape I'm in as "Confusing"..

Posted on June 17, 2013 at 9:30pm 2 Comments

Not Confusion...but Confusing.  I've started hanging out with the owner of our newly opened indoor climbing gym, who happens to be a mountaineer, rock climber, runner and fledgling swimmer and she's been positively mopping the floor with me for about a month.

It's awesome.  And a lesson in humility.  And a continuing lesson in "Shut Up and Do It". 

We've been doing run sprints, workouts with weight vests, the dreaded burpees, twists, cleans, squats...the…


Well, Turns Out 13.1 Miles Will Teach You Something...

Posted on April 17, 2013 at 11:48pm 3 Comments

...about yourself, your training and your motivation for doing what you do. 

It will also teach you things about layering, socks and just how grateful you can be over a granola bar.

In a nutshell, the lessons I got that were loud and clear were:

1. I could have pushed harder (always true)

2. Cardio and stamina were not my limiting factors

3. 13.1 miles is just the beginning, I think

4. If I can do this while experimenting with a…


The Mental Game

Posted on June 6, 2012 at 10:01am 12 Comments

I have two other blogs that I write at the moment and it seems like they have all been focused, in one way or another, on the idea of the Mental Game...the thing that keeps you motivated and can shoot you down the fastest, the creature that lives in your head...we all know how it goes.


There's always this moment of bliss for me when I start something new, before the accomplishments/goals/expectations can hit..when I'm just doing something that I've never done before and I'm…

Hey there- how do you like the Thursday night girl's run? I'm thinking about checking that out either this week or next. It sounds like fun.

Also, Ellen Young coordinates women's runs in Lawrence in case you didn't know. She works at Gary Gribble's. If you are interested, I can get you added to the email list. There are early morning and evening runs throughout the week.
