Another Race Finished!

About a week ago I got the idea to run another 5K.  This time it was in my hometown area, so that was nice.  Well today was that run, and I finished…in record time! What was really nice about this race was we actually ran through my neighborhood, so I was familiar with the course…

Bumps and Bruises

This as much of a running post as I normally do, but I’ll just go along with it. So as I mentioned a few posts back, I’m graduating on Sunday.  Exciting!  I came up with the brilliant idea to run a 5K the day before.  Not really a problem because I’ve done a 5K before…

It’s Race Week

So on Saturday I am running my second 5K.  Pretty exciting!  I went to the gym this afternoon because I wanted to watch the Bold & the Beautiful (I have an addiction to this show).  I got there earlier than I planned so I just got on the treadmill and ran until the show started….

Am I Crazy?

So I’ve been debating about doing a 5K in my hometown next week.  It’s called the Defeating Duchenne 5K and it’s to help raise money for a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.  I have been considering doing it for a while now, but the thing that has been holding me back is that the race…

End of the Semester

Today is my last day…my last day of classes, but pretty much my last day of undergrad! I have no final exams, so next week during exams, I have nothing I need to be doing.  So excited. Anyways, seeing it is the end of the semester, today was the last day of my spinning and…

It Keeps Getting Better!

So today I decided to try running without taping my ankle.  And good news, it didn’t hurt at all!  I didn’t run as hard or as far as I normally would have just to make sure, but I was happy that I made it through.  I am planning on continuing to run without taping it…

Sore Legs…Time for a Break

I ran today…like I do most Fridays.  My run started out much better today than it did on Wednesday.  I was running at 6mph and resting at 4mph, but after the first mile and a half, my legs were dying and I was having a harder time breathing and it was just no fun.  I…

Last FitMix Class

Tonight marked the end of Fit Mix for the semester…and well, for me in general seeing I’m graduating.  Sad day.  This class has been one of the best fitness classes I have ever done.  All the positive ideas and “challenge by choice” has made it such an enjoyable experience.  As you may recall from the…

Walking with Mom

So back in January I got my mom to agree to do the Royal Family 5K with me.  She’s not much of a runner, but she’s a really fast walker, so I knew she could do it.  Well, now I’m trying to convince her to do the Wine & Dine Half Marathon in November with me….

Home is Somewhat Relaxing

Last night I made my way back home for Easter only to discover my cousins were here and spending the night.  They’re seven year old twin boys, and what did they want to play when I got home? Tag.  Loads of fun.  I told them that I had already biked and did yoga, but that…

Life is Good

Today was fantastic. First of all, it marked the third day in a row that I ran. I also ran 2.75 miles, which is a quarter mile more than I’ve been running since returning from my ankle injury. Even better, my ankle didn’t bother me during or after the run. I felt so much better…

Getting Back on Track

I just ran two days in a row.  Even before I hurt my ankle I wasn’t running two days in a row, so I call that a success! Seeing I’m still recovering from my injury, I’m trying to take it slow (like the doctor to me).  I’m probably not taking it as slow as he…
