It’s been a long two weeks of traveling, but I’m glad to be telling you about my experience The Flying Pig Marathon. If you’ve been a long time reader, you might remember I attempted Flying Pig three years ago but switched to the half because I found out I was pregnant. I went back to claim my marathon that I missed three years ago. I don’t want to bury the lead. I had a FABULOUS time at the Flying Pig marathon. Flying Pig is a race weekend for everyone. There are toddler races to big kids; there’s a one-miler, a… View Post

It’s time for the marathon training update. The Flying Pig Marathon is two weeks away, so the peak of the training cycle is now complete. For this training cycle, I hired a running coach to help guide me through the marathon training process. Hiring the coach helped me push through some of those tough times and gave me some excellent accountability. Plus, if I had questions, someone could always give me the answers. How has marathon training gone for me this time around? I feel like there has been a struggle this time around. March turned out to be a… View Post

ALL Rock n Roll races are on sale right now!  This is the chance to run a race in the destination of choice and there’s a distance for everyone.  I ran my first Rock n Roll race in 2013 and I really liked the vibe.  The races have changed over the years but I’m still running strong at these races. There are races all over the world.  I’ve never run an international race but I’ve run my fair share of races in the United States.  I love being able to visit different cities.  The best way to see a city… View Post

I’m wicked excited to be here writing about completing my marathon. This was a huge deal for me and something I knew I would put off until the “right” time so I just put one on the schedule. There is never a right time to do anything, and I’ve learned I just need to make some things work.  If I would have waited until the “right” moment,  the moment may not have ever come. I’m not going to bury the lead on the blog post. On December 2, 2018, I ran my 39th marathon at Rock n Roll San Antonio.… View Post

I know you’ve been waiting on pins and needles waiting for my marathon training of week 3, right? The marathon training plan called for four runs this week: 3 miles, 4 miles, 3 miles, and 5 miles. It was kind of a drop back week because I added a mile to my mid-week run. It wasn’t actually meant to be a hard week of marathon training. I don’t know why this week was so hard for me. I struggled to get out of bed. I struggled with every single run this week, but I’m thankful I was able to finish… View Post
