Yesterday I ran the Run Houston Minute Maid Park 10K in Houston. This was a race I was planning to do but didn’t sign up for until this week.  I’m being cautious about all of this stuff, but these races are a good excuse to throw myself into mileage.  I will use time as an excuse not to run longer so the races for me to make it until the end.  This race was the second in the race series.  I’ve never run any of these races but I’ll get to that later. I woke up early to squeeze into… View Post

This is a post that I didn’t want to make but I have to say it.  I need a break.  I have too many things going on right now.  My blog has always come first since I started it but right now with the new baby, I just can’t keep up.  I can’t plan the way I want to plan, I can’t provide the content I want to provide because time management is just something different right now.  Things are getting easier but I’m still making a transition.  I hope to be back on track in a few weeks after… View Post

This was… View Post

I’m not really going to pretend this was a serious race for me, because it wasn’t. Most people run this race to qualify for the Houston Marathon! Well I’m not running the Houston Marathon so this was just another race for me. It’s probably not my most favorite race in history but it was my first 10K two years ago and last year I ran it after my grandma passed. This year I wasn’t going to run it but something in me told me to run it. It wasn’t a big tadoo but some of my running group friends were… View Post
