This winter, I don’t think it will ever end. When I got up yesterday it was -10F with a windchill of -29F. For real, -29F, those are some seriously cold temperatures. And school didn’t even give us a delay. Even my car cried a little when I started it to Read more →

And there it is, my last race of the year in the books. This was my second year running the It’s A Wonderful Run 5k and this year’s weather was much more amenable to running. It’s a great race to end the year with and this year was no exception. Read more →

This week has been tough, but good overall so far. I’m trying to take the time to get myself back on track. I need my training to start increasing in intensity and I need my eating to get back on point. For me, those two things function entirely hand in hand. I miss Read more →

A few things worth reporting.  First, I caved and bought full length cold weather gear compression pants. Although I managed my 16* run Sunday in the snow in capris, my legs were quite cold. I didn’t notice while I was running so much, but either way, if I want to Read more →
