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 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

I don’t want to miss a great January race. I also find I manage to keep my mileage steady if I… Continue reading Do You Re-Run Races?
