‘Twas The Night Before Santa’s Race

‘Twas the night before race day when all through the town Not a runner was stirring, they were all lying down.  Their shoes were placed by the back door with care In hopes new PR’s would soon be theirs. The Cruisers were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of age group wins danced in their heads. And […]

2014 Firecracker 5K Recap

On Thursday I picked up my race packet for the Firecracker 5K in Reston Town Center.  Packet pick-up was at Potomac River Running and I got in and out in a breeze!   Since last year’s shirt was a little tight, I ordered a medium this year and it fits perfectly.  The color is a […]

“Come Back Here Turkey, I Just Want To Talk!”

Yesterday’s race was the first time ever that I had a DNF (did not finish)…  It was for a very good reason though, and if you stay with me for a few minutes, you’ll see why! Last week Bill and I signed up for the 20th Annual Ashburn Farm 10K, a race that we’ve run […]

Being Thankful

While I’m preparing to run in our local turkey trot this morning, celebrating post-race by hosting our annual champagne breakfast for the Cruisers, and then busily preparing food for our Thanksgiving feast, I must take time to say a prayer of thanksgiving for my many blessings… Have a blessed Thanksgiving, my friends.  I’ll be back […]

2012, 2010, 1999, And 1997 Ashburn Farm 10K And 5K Race Recaps

Since today is packet pick-up for the Ashburn Farm Thanksgiving Day 2K/5K/10K, I thought I’d write a recap of the previous years that Bill and I have run in this local Thanksgiving morning turkey trot.  We estimate that we’ve run the race about 10-15 times, and some of our friends have run it every year.   […]

All Things Green…

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, today’s focus will be on the color green, and Leprechauns… My legs felt great this morning after my 15-mile run yesterday with Beth, so I decided to go on an easy 6-mile run with my Sunday morning BRF’s Susan and Shawn.  I’m feeling a comeback, baby! I really do […]
