Ragnar Trail Richmond Ultra Recap, Part 2

Yesterday, I left off my Ragnar Trail Richmond recap as I was snuggling into my sleeping bag, hoping to get a few hours sleep before my teammate Jenny woke me after her run. Meagan had planned to sleep in our tent as well, but decided to stay in her own single-person tent located slightly farther away […]

Ragnar Trail Richmond Ultra Recap, Part 1

Last weekend marked my fourth Ragnar Relay, Ragnar Trail Richmond. After several years of turning down my friend, Chuck, when invited to join his team, I finally drank the Ragnar Kool-Aid and ran Ragnar DC in 2014 with my Cruiser friends – Chuck included. Having had a fabulous time, I eagerly joined our MRTT team to run Ragnar Trail Appalachians […]

2016 Loudoun Half and 8K Race Recap

When my friend Lesley asked if I’d be interested in helping promote this year’s Loudoun Half and 8K on social media in exchange for three free race entries (one for me and two to give away), I jumped at the chance.  Since I had run the half in 2014 I knew it would be a well-run event, and with […]

2016 Run Your Heart Out 5K Race Recap

I hadn’t planned on running a winter race this year until I won an entry into the Run Your Heart Out 5K back in January when I posted a picture of me running in the snow to Instagram and tagged @PotomacRiverRunning. My picture won, and on Sunday I found myself toeing the starting line with the air temperature at a […]

Peer pressure may usually have a negative connotation, but in this case it was a good thing and worked out in my favor. Erin couldn’t stand the thought of missing out on all of the fun, so she signed up for the Run With Santa 5K at the last minute! She even picked up my […]

2015 Ragnar DC Recap – Part 1

Last year’s experience running Ragnar DC with my Cruiser friends was something like I’d never experienced before and I knew that I had to return!  And return I have – twice.  In June, I joined my MRTT team for Ragnar Trail Appalachians WV, and just last week I joined Moms RUN This Ragnar (again, my […]

A Ragnar DC Tease

Exhausted, sleep-deprived, cold, and wet; yet delirious with joy, my amazing MRTT team ran 200.5 miles from Cumberland, Maryland to Washington, DC in just over 35 hours completing the 2015 Ragnar DC…  And it’s weekends like this, that memories are made from!   Later this week I hope to start recapping our Ragnar DC adventure.  […]

2015 Dulles Day On The Runway 10K Race Recap

It’s not every day one has an opportunity to run on an airport runway, and when I heard about this race a couple of years ago, I desperately wanted to participate.  Problem was, I was either out of town for another race or a football game when the race was being held.  This year the […]

2015 Outer Banks Lighthouse 5K Race Recap

A race on a Wednesday?  Of course!  Every day is Saturday at the beach!  Last summer without realizing there was a 5K every Wednesday in Corolla, we came down to our beach house for a quick stay in August from Wednesday to Wednesday, and weren’t able to run in the race.  I decided to plan […]
