Good Luck Marine Corps Marathoners and Washington Nationals!

A Fun Day Hanging with Kim in Arlington  A couple of weeks ago, Kim emailed asking if I had any availability to meet her on Friday before the Marine Corps Marathon. She would be arriving several hours before she could check into her Airbnb and had plenty of time to kill. Luckily for me, my […]

Bloggers On Bikes, More About Cosmos, And Visiting The Farm

Last Sunday morning I mentioned that Bill and I were getting ready for a biking date with Deborah and Courtney. Deborah had reached out to me about riding together after seeing a picture on Instagram that I had posted of the LOVE sculpture in Leesburg, VA. Deborah drove to our house and the three of us hopped on […]

I originally hadn’t planned to put the 2017 For The Love Of It 10K on my racing calendar. More often than not, I choose not to sign up for races during January, February, and March. Even though I quite like running in the cold, I don’t like standing around waiting for a race to start while I’m freezing. As […]

Running The Trails At Hungry Mother State Park

Saturday morning I drove to Marion to meet Meagan for a trail run at Hungry Mother State Park. Bill and I ran there a couple of times in October and loved it so much that we decided to run the half marathon scheduled for this spring.  The only problem was that the race was moved […]

A Trip To The Country

Last Wednesday I drove to my mom’s house to visit for several days. I had a beautiful sunny drive through the Shenandoah and Roanoke valleys, and today I’m making the return journey back home. Mom’s Internet was down while I was there, so I could only get online when I drove into town and used […]

Light Up The Night VIP Cocktail Party

My super busy weekend started around 4:45 on Friday afternoon when I left home for the first of the The Fit Foodie 5K Race Weekend events.  I allowed a little extra time because I was expecting to get caught in Friday afternoon commuter traffic, but I was pleasantly surprised that I got to the Mosaic […]

A Run Through Great Falls Park

I’ve been trying to meet up and run with Logan of Mountains and Miles since last fall.  We had a couple of runs planned in October but my dad got sick and I was out of town.  We signed up for a trail race together this spring, but Logan aggravated her IT Band at a […]

2014 Loudoun Half Marathon Race Recap, And A New PR

Today was the Inaugural Loudoun Half Marathon and as expected the Ashburn Area Running Club did a fabulous job in putting this first-time race together.  I first heard about this new race at the Reston Ten Miler and decided that I wanted to add it to my race calendar, mainly because the race proceeds were […]

From Tragedy Comes Good

Perhaps some good has already come from the tragic death of one our local runners.  I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that the trails had been plowed of the nine inches of snow we got overnight from Sunday to mid-day Monday.  Not all of our running trails have been plowed, but the ones that […]

With the help from Leidos, […]
