Not such a good day

February 19, 2009

Ok, this post kinda has to do with running.  It has more to do with what happened directly following one of my runs. I know everyone is fiending for posts about my running escapades, but you’ll all have to wait until the next one: So, after breaking my foot during the Marine Corps Marathon last […]

What was I THINKING?!!! Wait, was I even thinking?

February 3, 2009

Warning: This blog post has nothing to do with running. So, anyone who really knows me or works with me knows that I’m unhealthily obsessed with being to work on time.  Not just in the building on time, but logged onto my computer and ready to be a contributing member of my staff…on time.  As […]

By request of Pithy…

November 24, 2008

7 quirky, perky, smirky things about me: 1) I can’t touch any cereal and/or milk unless it is chocolate.  The best combination is chocolate cereal with plain, white milk that turns chocolate by the time the cereal is gone. Coco Pebbles, Coco Puffs, etc… 2) I take freakishly long and copious notes (and still manage […]

Olympic Wow’s, tri #2 and New Shoes :)

August 18, 2008

Well runners, I hope everyone’s been watching the Olympics — especially the track and field events — because they have been truly amazing. Saturday night my sister and I caught the women’s marathon. Simply amazing! I’ve always been a big fan of Paula Radcliffe; besides being one of the greatest female distance runners in the […]

Running ‘can slow ageing process’

August 12, 2008

Running on a regular basis can slow the effects of ageing, a study by US researchers shows. Elderly joggers were half as likely to die prematurely from conditions like cancer than non-runners. They also enjoyed a healthier life with fewer disabilities, the Stanford University Medical Center team found. Experts said the findings in Archives of […]

Okay loyal runners, I don’t know for sure, but I have the feeling that the Baltimore Half Marathon is going to fill up quickly. I registered yesterday and urge all of you to do the same 🙂 🙂 So far, CS2 (work schedule permitting), Jen, my sister and I are running the half marathon; and […]

My sister KICKS ASS!

July 28, 2008

Words cannot express how proud I am of my sister Jessica! She did her fist triathlon yesterday in New Jersey! For everyone not familiar with a full, Olympic triathlon, it is 1 mile of swimming (yes, SWIMMING FOR AN ENTIRE MILE!!), followed by 25 miles of road biking and a 10K (6.2 mile) run to […]

The Loooong Pause

July 20, 2008

Well runners, I’m back with renewed vigor! I know it’s been a long time since I’ve blogged about running (I’m just not that great of a consistent writer even though I do it daily and as a way to make my living) but I finally have something to talk about. Three things to be exact. […]

Nothing to do with running…

June 30, 2008

My parents write a weekly (or monthly, I can’t remember) column for a local paper that is syndicated in a few different markets.  It’s called “Behaviourisms” and basically consists of them fighting back and forth over some political/pop culture/social issues.  I found their latest one particularly interesting (mainly because they agree for once in their […]

Stoplights and bugs…yuck to both!

June 12, 2008

One of the things I miss most about Colorado (other than my family…obviously) is trail running.  One of the best feelings in the world is getting out in the mountains or the desert with nothing in front of you but open space.  One of my favorite trails was a desert trail called Lion’s Head.  I […]
