OMG… what did I just do!!?!
Running
It’s official, I have signed up for the 2017 Houston Marathon. I’m very excited! As mentioned in my 2016 running goals post, training for this marathon was one of the goals I had for this year.  It brings me one step closer. In other news, I have taken a week of from training for my half marathon.  I’m having pretty …
Loving these flip-flops!
Product Review
I purchased the OOFOS OOriginal flip flops when I started amping up my mileage.  I had read several reviews of how after a long run, these flip-flops felt really good.  A few weeks later I was in my local running store and decided to try them on, I couldn’t believe it… they felt like walking on clouds. They were out of …
Welcome 2016
Running
I love New Year! I enjoy reflecting on the outgoing year as I dream of what I want to accomplish for the incoming year.  Most people I know make New Year Resolutions and they seem to be focus on a negative aspect of yourself.  I like to create New Years Aspirations and have them focus on making myself a better …
2015 Running Year in Review
Running
In April I started out my training with the C25K app.  I finished in early June and signed up for a 5k. I started training with the Runkeeper app for the 5k and on August 1 I ran that 5k and really enjoyed it.  So much so, it got me to start thinking about what else can I do. I …
Elves On The Run
Race Recap
Saturday I ran in the Elves on the Run 5k.  It was a night time race through the streets of Houston.  The weather was going to be interesting, as we were expecting a front to move through… timing was going to be critical. I carefully chose my outfit paying more attention to the precipitation aspect instead of the temperature. Flat …
Race Junkie
Running
I may or may not be becoming a race junkie.  A mere 72 hours after I signed up for the Jailbreak Half Marathon I got a notice of a discount code for another race.  This time it is a 5k, and I was looking at running it anyway.  I decided to take advantage of the discount and signed up for …
New Goal Race
Running
I just signed up for my next race… and I’m super excited!  It is the Jail Break Half Marathon in Baytown, TX.  I had originally thought I would run the Rhythm & Blues Half, but I looked at the course and decided I would rather not do a double loop course and the Jail Break run was just one week …
New Shoes!
Running
Who doesn’t love getting new shoes?  It is one of my favorite things!  I recently read a blog post about Altra shoes and the large toe box and decided that I had to try them.  I have bunions on my feet and one foot is definitely worse than the other.  A lot of the shoes out there are too narrow …
Wow has stuff changed…
Running
The last time I was seriously into running was in 2002-2003.  I did have a few non-cotton running outfits, but mostly everything I ran in was cotton based, including my sports bra.  Fast forward to 2015… most everything is now made from tech fiber that wicks your sweat. Best of all, it can be found everywhere, so it is accessible to …
New Race Goal – Half Marathon
Running
I just signed up for a half marathon!!! It will actually be the second one that I want to do next year, I haven’t signed up for the first one. I’m excited and a little scared. This one looks like it could be a fun one… complete with boas, tiaras, and hunks! Looking forward to running in Galveston, I have missed …
