It’s the last day of the year and I feel like I should put the final stamp on the year so I’m not writing about 2014 tomorrow.  I have so many things I want to say but I know it’s stuff that everyone wants to hear/read.  2014 was a great year for me.  I found my voice in 2014 so in 2015 I hope I can gain some comfortability with my voice.  I traveled across the world and across this great country. I ran two big dream races: The Great Wall of China and Marine Corps Marathon in the SAME… View Post

My best friend Melissa is a sucker for chocolate.  I told her about these races and I was pleased to see one coming to Austin so I asked her if she wanted to do a race.  Of course, she was happy to do it.  She will run for chocolate. I like running 10K because it’s short of “longish” for a run!  I woke up Saturday to run 6.5 miles before the race so I could get my miles in.  This wasn’t anything serious for me.  I was really doing this race for fun and to hang out with my friend.… View Post

Sunday I ran the Austin 10/20 with my running friends.  I didn’t realize so many of us were running! There was a huge group which always makes for a great picture. I won’t lie, this race isn’t my most favorite race in the world. But I like the atmosphere and the people which essentially end up making it a great race. The course is uber boring. The Austin 10/20 is 10 miles with 20 bands. There are a lot of people who run this race and the bands are pretty good. I stopped to take pictures of my favorite bands.… View Post

It’s a big day for all who want to run Rock n Roll races next year. TODAY only you can save up to $20 on races for next year! As you all know, I love these races for many reasons. These races have great sponsors, great organized races, great staff and volunteers and many great opportunities to run a great race. I also love these races because it gives me a chance to see the country. I set my PR at RnR Dallas, ran the hardest race of my life at RnR Denver, Willie ran his first half at RnR… View Post

I had a pretty uneventful weekend but it should have been eventful.  There was a Halloween party but that was really bust and I was supposed to run a relay with Willie on Sunday but the skies opened up and he didn’t feel comfortable running in the rain.  It was a wash! That was really a shame because we woke up at 4 AM to make it to the race and then it was delayed so we sat around wet for almost 2 hours by the time the race was about to start it was still raining but we were… View Post
