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’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!
Yes, a title like that could get into just about any topic and maybe I will. Or maybe I’ll stick to the topic I was thinking of when I came up with the title. I’m having trouble staying focused this time of year. Normally, because of a spring marathon on the horizon, it is not… Continue reading This Time of Year
I’ve been meaning to get a post like this up for some time. I want you all to know why I review certain items and from where these items come. I will, regardless of where the items come from, always be 100% honest in my reviews. I do not want to read the standard line… Continue reading Where Do I Get Products, Books, Races to Review?

I do though, have a race in March and April and, in keeping with my thought process on the first of… Continue reading New Year, New Race Schedule
Wow! Seems every weekend in Roanoke is better. Now to find a job there and move. Other than loving the area, I am sitting here today, on the third day after this half, and still a bit sore from it. There are not words to describe the fun in running this race, the fun in… Continue reading Blue Ridge Half Marathon – A Recap
I’m hitting the road again tomorrow. I am off to Roanoke, Virginia. I had never been to this area until last year at this time. I fell in love with the area. City life with mountains nearby. My trip to Asheville reminded me a lot of Roanoke. So, Saturday morning, I will toe the start… Continue reading Packing Again
People said I was crazy last year when I said I was heading to Roanoke, Virginia to run the Blue Ridge Marathon. Who thinks it’s a good idea to run a marathon that owns – and proudly so – the title “America’s Toughest Road Race?” I do and I loved it so much I’m going… Continue reading Come #runBlueRidge
I believe I left you at the Star on top of Mill Mountain. If you recall, I had sort of caught up with Angie. We headed, not together but close, down Mill Mountain. The down was curvy and a fairly sharp incline. Not far down the hill, about a half mile or so, there was… Continue reading Blue Ridge Marathon Recap – Last 13 Miles
