Rock n Roll San Antonio Marathon 2018

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

Marathon Training Week 3: Mollie Tibbetts on my mind

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

I quit the Habenero Hundred 20k

Yesterday I posted about the Habenero Hundred 20k and how I quit the race.  Luckily, I was able to jump back in because I learned a lot from this experience.  All week, I talked about this race. Excitement was in the air.  I shed tears on Monday because when I went to sign up for the race the 20K was sold out and I had to “settle” for the 10k.  Ten minutes before the race started, I was able to upgrade my race to the 20K. Ironically, I quit the race at the 10K mark and I just walked away.… View Post

Marathon Training Week 2: A HOT week

Hey all!  I hope you’re having a Happy Sunday.  I’ve completed my second week of marathon training and I’m here to tell you about it. Now is your chance to read about week one of training. But first, I want to say, I’m not leaving the blog vacant on purpose.  I have blog posts on blog posts, I just haven’t finished them.  Today, I’m taking the time to work on the blog during nap time to get some of those posts finished. But now, you get to talk about my marathon training.  I am pleased to say I had a… View Post

Start of marathon training

You may have missed the news, but I’ve decided to start marathon training.  My first marathon post-baby will be Rock n Roll San Antonio. I’ve run this marathon before and it’s not one of the easiest courses, but the time limit, 7 hours, is the thing that is most important to me.  My PR on the marathon is 4:49:34 and I know I won’t be hitting that time this time around.  I wanted to pick a race that had a “generous” time limit. It’s been a week in my house.  I thought I had everything together and was ready to start… View Post
