My January Goals

It’s the end of January 2018! It is time to revisit our New Year’s goals and tasks. Did we accomplish some or all that we hoped to?  Between starting a new sport and adding new tasks to my to do lists, I’ve noticed that I’m more tired and run down. Not a good way to […] Read more…

I ran 500 miles this year!

With a few days to spare, I met my goal of running 500 miles this year. It wasn’t easy. I know many runners run A LOT more than 500 miles yearly so this may not be impressive to most. As a new runner who started my running journey in January (it took me until May […] Read more…

I’m a 2018 Nuun Ambassador!

On Monday, I woke up to great news that I was selected to be part of the 2018 Nuun Ambassador team! I have been using Nuun products since training for the Area 13.1 half marathon in May. It came highly recommended from a sale associate at my favorite running store. My stomach could not handle […] Read more…

Atlanta Jingle Bell Jog 5K PR

I ran the Five Star NTP Thanksgiving Turkey Trot. They offered distances of 5K, 10K, 15K, and half marathon. I originally registered to […] Read more…

When will I be ready to run a marathon?

Today is the NYC Marathon. You better believe I tried to enter that race via an online contest but alas, I’m at home in GA. When I entered the Team Ultra giveaway for a shot at a bib, it didn’t occur to me that I may not have enough of a base to try to […] Read more…

I finally PR’d and ran a sub-30 5K!

I started my racing season this year with two 5K’s in May and June. I ran both 5K’s over 30 minutes (see my races page for all race times). I wanted to challenge myself with a 5K since August but I’ve been busy every Saturday, so I was ecstatic when I finally found a 5K […] Read more…
