Dances with Dirt & What Now

I got to join the Quaff On girls relay team last weekend for Dances with Dirt. I was thinking of doing the half so when they asked me to be on their team, I thought this would be much better than just doing the half by myself. These girls are fast and I was definitely the weak link on my team. Before the race I said "So are we running hard or just kind of hard and for fun". Anne took off first and … [Read more...]

Indy Mini Race

I was super pleased with my first race back post Louis. I was thinking I'd run between 1:40-1:45 based on what I've been running.

500 Festival Mini THIS WEEKEND!

Still a lot of building an work to do, but we're getting somewhere. I'm … [Read more...]

Week Rundown & Cyrotherapy GIVEAWAY!!

I felt much better this past week and was able to add some miles in! Glad the plague is behind us. I hit 34 miles and Glenn was around 55. We are slowly getting back up to where we'd both like to be. Having another kid is no joke. I mean beyond the whole body adjusting thing, it's a time thing too. Glenn has usually always been a 5:00am runner, but has taken that 5:00am kid shift the past couple … [Read more...]
