Bear Lake Marathon Trifecta!

When I set out to go a little crazy and do some type of extreme event, my litmus test is always to see if I get people to tell me that I am crazy for doing it. Running 3 half marathons in 3 states in 3 days fit the bill perfectly. And on my honeymoon nonetheless!

Happy Summer Solstice!

And a happy Midsummer to those of you still close to your northern European roots. Anyone put up a midsummer tree? (Maybe some Danish-Americans in Greenville?) It’s just getting dark now here near Indian River, and it seems like a LONG time since my five-miler this morning to start the day. I hope to see some Champions at the Reeds Lake Run on Saturday.

Sharing your belief with others….

On Saturday, June 17th my husband and I had the opportunity to run the Meijer LPGA 5k in Rockford for Team Aquinas College-The Saints!  Even as we woke up that morning we weren’t sure if the race would happen.  It was raining pretty hard with lighting.  The race ended up being postponed for 45 minutes.  At 8:40 a.m. they lined us up at the start.  AQ Senior, Johnny Agar, spoke to everyone before we were given the start gun.  It ended up being a cool, but muggy morning 5k.  The route was pretty good…a bit hilly at the end…but all in all it was a nice route.  Read More »

Gr Tri; it’s a different race every time.

I am learning, although the course maybe the same, its a different race every time.

The weather, my training, gear, confidence, fellow competitors. The weather leading up determines what outdoor prep can be achieved, as much as mother nature on race day! Read More »

Only One Cheat Meal???

As others have stated, I’m not sure how you can just pick one cheat meal!!!  Mainly because I like food!  And I’m 33 weeks pregnant, so my cheat meals or cravings sometimes change weekly!  My go-to’s are nachos, pizza and breadsticks!  Read More »
