When A Pity Party Turns Into A Fantastic Run

I’ve mentioned before that what I miss most about not being able to run marathons anymore is not the race, but the long training runs. I LOVED those runs and referred to them as a party on the trail. When else can you have that much uninterrupted time with your friends? Long training runs were […]

One Can Never Have Too Many Running Friends

We’ve got seven runners representing the Cruisers tomorrow morning at the George Washington Parkway Classic Ten Mile Run, and I’m one of them.  This morning would have been the perfect morning to sleep in, but a healthy dose of FOMO (fear of missing out), got me out of bed at 6:20 and on the running […]

Moms RUN This Town, My Local Chapter

On a cold January morning in 2014 while out on a Saturday morning group run with the Cruisers, we saw our fellow Cruiser friend Amanda running with a group of ladies we didn’t know.  We stopped to say hi, and I teased her about two-timing the Cruisers.  Later that day, she asked me if I […]

A Group Run, Fat Bastard, And Katy Perry

Pre-run photos are getting harder to take now that it’s staying dark later in the mornings, especially since our MRTT running group starts at zero dark thirty most mornings.  Since we run so many different distances on Saturday mornings, taking a large group picture at the end of our run in out of the question.  […]

Moms Take Over Erin’s House!

On Sunday, we had our first local chapter MRTT open house appropriately named the Fall Showcase Open House!  Our chapter leaders, Erin and Amanda, put a lot of effort into making it perfect and fun for their 300 members.  No, we didn’t have perfect attendance, but the turnout was really good! Erin had transformed her […]

Group Runs Are My New Norm

Joining my local MRTT chapter was one of the best things for my running. Of course as with all things, you get out of it, what you put into it.  I happen to be fortunate enough to be part of a very active and fun chapter.  It’s very easy to want to meet these ladies […]

Must Be Monday…

Notice anything different about the look of my blog? I’m considering myself lucky, very lucky…  This morning I updated my theme and this is what I got.  It’s never a good thing to see those two words, “Fatal error.” Fortunately, I always backup my website before updating anything.  A quick Goggle search showed that other […]

2014 TKO Melanoma 5K Race Recap

This morning’s TKO Melanoma 5K was a ton of fun; well, except for while I was running which was hard work!  This second annual race was in memory of Theresa O’Conner, a loving wife and mom, who lost her battle with melanoma in 2012.  Running this race yearly and spreading the word about melanoma is […]
