Flying Deer, Rabid Animals; And What’s The Difference Between A Runner And A Jogger?

Today’s post originally ran 0n December 10, 2013, but when another rabid animal attacked a runner in Maine just last month, I thought it was time to update the post with the newest story… You’re not going to believe this story that I heard about on TV, and later read about in this Washington Post […]

Ten Years Later And Hokie Nation Is Stronger Than Ever

Today I’m asking forgiveness from Holly and Tricia as I link my non-weekly-wrap post to their linkup. Later this evening I will be posting my normal weekly wrap, but today’s anniversary weighs heavily and I need to share the good to balance out the negative… ************************************************* I’m often asked what it is that gives me such love for […]

How To Throw An Italian Dinner Party

This is one of my favorite Deb Runs non-running posts, edited slightly to update for tonight’s big event…   Tonight is our annual Italian Dinner Party – a night in February where I can shine and make my husband both happy and proud – happy that he’s getting a good home cooked meal; and proud that I try […]

Merry Christmas, My Friends!

Joy To The World! The Lord Has Come Let Earth Receive Her King…       Merry Christmas, My Friends!   Questions: Are you going to be with family today? If you don’t celebrate Christmas, what do you usually do on December 25 since most businesses are closed? Did you run today?

The Elf In The Gym

This first ran last December and remains one of my favorite DebRuns posts. I hope you enjoy! The basement was quiet without any noise, No banging or clanging of any gym toys. Just a few empty bottles, and a little spilled water, I nervously wondered if we had a free-loading squatter. Forgetting the season, forgetting the time, I was slightly afraid […]

Finding The Perfect Christmas Tree

From December 22, 2014… As a couple, Bill and I have never gone out and cut down a Christmas tree.  For several years, we purchased our Christmas tree from a nursery, but then we started buying them from our local volunteer fire department.  I reasoned that the fire department would surely sell the freshest-cut trees […]

Thanksgiving Blessings

My heart is full! Joseph, Julie, Daniel, and Jess arrived at our house yesterday afternoon, and once again our home is filled with the energy of youth. As children grow up and leave the nest, holidays become all the sweeter with their return visits home. We are truly blessed. I have always loved Thanksgiving….. A time to reflect and be […]

Minor changes have been made to bring it up to date. Enjoy…     In celebration of tomorrow’s 41st running of the Marine Corps Marathon, I’m sharing ten […]

Make Every Day A Skin Cancer Awareness Day

On this last day of Skin Cancer Awareness Month, I’m reminding myself and my readers to make every day a day in which you’re aware of any changes on your skin, no matter how small they seem to be. It is because I noticed an odd looking spot on my lower leg and had it examined immediately, that I […]

What Our Christmas Tree Says About Us

This first appeared on Deb Runs on Christmas Eve 2013. I hope you enjoy…   Just for fun, I’m going to take you on a quick tour of our main Christmas tree.  I suppose you could say there are a few themes going on here and of course running is one of the big ones!   I […]

Memories Of Finding The Perfect Tree

Happy Boston Marathon Day!

Even though I’m not running Boston this year, and will probably never have the privilege to run it again, I’m very excited for my running friends who are in Boston preparing to race this morning, especially those running it for the first time! Please join me in wishing them an amazing fun-filled race!  My advice […]

When The Brooklyn Dodgers Recruited My Dad

What better day than the opening day of baseball to honor my dad, and brag about his baseball accomplishments! Dad would never have told you these things, but if you started asking questions, he would have told you some great baseball stories. Asking Dad’s friends about his baseball accomplishments; however, opened a floodgate of stories […]

One Year Later, And Missing My Dad

A year ago today I lost my dad, and at times it feels like it was forever ago, and at other times it seems like just yesterday that I was laughing at his corny jokes, giving him fitness advice, and talking Monday morning quarterback with him. Shortly after Dad died, I wrote the following tribute […]
