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
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 then put the number in a random number generator and got number 13 as the winner.… Continue reading Monday Coffee
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
The marathon is just under a month away. I really meant to write this yesterday but just didn’t have time to get to it. I have two other races prior to Blue Ridge Marathon – a 15K this Sunday here locally and either a half or a 10K in Ithaca the Sunday before the marathon,… Continue reading Training Update
How far in advance do you plan your races? I’ve been guilty of registering months in advance – mostly to take advantage of lower registration fees. I’ve also been guilty of registering the morning of the race – mostly for short (5Ks), local races. I am sitting here at the end of October 2012 and… Continue reading Racing into 2013
