So I thought I would give the Week in Review a try to share my fitness journey with you. I tend to keep busy and sometimes I think it’s a good idea to do more than 1 workout in a day. You would think that would be the hardest part of my week. (more…)
I guess at some point I will stop starting my posts with “It’s been awhile and I will post more often…” Hmmm… maybe a New Year’s Resolution that starts early. I find that if I set a resolution before the end of the previous year and (more…)
On January 1, 2016, I started putting another one of my brilliant ideas into action–2016 a year of running challenges. In the Fall of 2015, I said, “I think next year can be a the year of race challenges.” I decided I’m going to push my limits and accomplish some stuff I’ve read about and thought was cool/craziness. I mean why not? Yeah, so what I’m not the typical looking runner and nor am I the fastest (regularly the slowest or close to it)… (more…)
Today is National Relaxation Day according to NationalDayCalendar.com. Relaxing is an important part of life. I feel like I don’t do enough of it these days, but I have been making an effort to carve out 5-30 minutes a day to relax.

Thanks for giving me an excuse to demonstrate my special brand of (running) crazy on June 1, 2016. Four runs in less than 24 hours… maybe a little extreme, but the potential for midweek fun overrode good sense.
I planned this day a couple of weeks in advance. I knew that when you went from National Running Day to Global Running Day that big things were in store (and less sleep, more miles, and great memories too). OK so by plan, I registered for some events and tried to decide on my “How to Stay Awake at Work on No Sleep” plan.
Luckily, I didn’t really have to do much work to find my events. (more…)
