I signed up for my friend Angie’s 100 miles in November. Let’s just say this was a major fail this November. I didn’t even hit 25 miles – maybe the reason I picked a photo where you can’t really see me for this – as I had a ton to do this past month and… Continue reading Running
Most of my writings have been about books – reviews through a group I am part of called Beck Valley Book Tours – this past year. I have started to blog again and then fallen off the track. I am starting again now. New Place to Call Home I have some great news. I am… Continue reading I’m Back
I put my bicycle back on the road – yes, the actual road – a little over two years ago. I absolutely love cycling. It is my cross training of choice and could easily become my primary sport or method of exercise. Now, I admit I’ve made what I consider a few improvements to my… Continue reading July is Cycling Month
I haven’t stopped running. I’ve just gotten sidetracked. And, there may be mention of female issues in the writing below so read on at your own risk. I had some health issues in January that caused me to not run for a period of time. Hopefully, this particular issue will never surface again. I… Continue reading Running
I’ve made it through the beginning of March. With March 1 being the start of Lent, this meant adding an additional part to trying to decide how March will proceed. I think it is going to be a great month. My oldest was in Nashville last week and stopped by to visit briefly. No,… Continue reading Living in the Mountains
I have to let y’all know that my favorite way to see a new city is to walk around. The problem is that normally I only see the downtown area by doing this. Enter a local race, like the Pittsburgh Marathon. Even with a new course this year, the marathon in Pittsburgh, PA will take… Continue reading Pittsburgh Marathon
I’m not quite ready to race this winter so am focusing on two very important spring races. I wrote about them previously but here is a vlog about where I’ll be this spring. Are you running Blue Ridge or Pittsburgh? If so, get in touch!
I was going to give each race its own separate post but somehow yesterday was lost in church work and a few other things that had to be done. Consequently, here are the two big races I have planned for the first half of this year and why I love running each. I will be… Continue reading Roanoke and Pittsburgh, Here I Come!
I would love to say that I have planned out my year to the race but so far I have not really done that. I was looking at a 25K in February that will most likely not happen. I have yet to run a step in 2017 and it is the sixth. I’ve been having… Continue reading A Year of Racing
It’s been just about two weeks since I ran the Conquer the Mountain Half Marathon in Franklin, NC. Funny! When I bought my Subaru in NY, the guy asked me if I knew where Franklin was as he was heading there for a wedding in June. I had no idea and had never even heard… Continue reading Conquer the Mountain Half Marathon
