Photos (of me) from Race the Runways Yes, they are just of me. Yes, I am totally vain. Yes, I made sure to smile at the camera.
When I was a freshman in high school, I took guitar lessons. This was also around the era where I was convinced that I was going to be a rock star and lead a band of girl rebels and boy mavericks. Well, that never came to pass, and I’m way to self-conscious to ham it […]
The race went as good, if not totally better than I ever would have hoped. I finished with a time of 2 hours, 12 minutes and 42 seconds, which translates into a 10:07 mile pace. This is the fastest pace I’ve EVER clocked for ANY run, AND it was my farthest run ever, which makes […]
That is the face of a pre-half-marathon runner. It’s race day! Wish me luck!

It was more than 50 degrees today. 50 amazing degrees. I didn’t get to do a lunch-time run, which was something I probably needed today, because Thursday is Weight Watchers today. I gained 2 pounds from a week ago. That came as a shock. I felt like I was having a very tight, renewed, powerful […]
