Pandapas Pond Trail Run – As I mentioned on Sunday, while in Blacksburg last week for the Thursday night Virginia Tech football game, Bill and I took advantage of the gorgeous weather and changing leaves and headed out to Pandapas Pond for our first of two trail adventures. Unfortunately, Bill isn’t able to run a lot […]

Picture This Lošinj, Croatia Run

On a recent early morning run, I hung on every word as my new MRTT running friend Kristina described one of her runs from earlier this year. It was only our second run together and with headlamps glaring in each others faces I didn’t realize who was running next to me and sharing such a fun running saga […]

Picture This Country Roads Run – Spring Edition

I arrived at my Mom’s house on Wednesday afternoon to spend a week with her – my spring break of sorts.  The weather has been typical March weather, and all over the place. Thursday’s high was 74°, and last night’s low was 12°. After driving for six hours on Wednesday, I needed to move my […]

Picture This Snowy Morning Run

Back in August I started a series called Picture This Run.  Today’s installment will be about waking up to a beautiful fresh powdery snowfall and strapping on our Yaktrax before heading out for an adventuresome run. We had record snowfall in the winter of 2010 (actually I just made that up, but we did have […]

Running Hills On A Beautiful Fall Day

Last Saturday while Bill and I were still at my parents’ house we woke up at 8:30 AM to 22 degrees.  Mom checked her little weather station for the overnight low and it had gotten down to 17 degrees!  We waited around until 11:30 to go on our run, and by then the temperature had […]

The Many Shades of My Morning Run

Bill and I headed out for our run at 6:30 this morning and were treated to a sunrise that changed many times right before our eyes!  Every time we turned a corner and looked to the east, the sky was a different color.  Sit back and enjoy the beauty of our morning run… Before we […]

Picture This Huckleberry Trail Run

In anticipation of running the Hokie Half Marathon this fall with Meagan on the Huckleberry Trail, I am going to take you on a run on the 5.76-mile trail that runs from Christiansburg to Blacksburg… The Virginia Anthracite Coal and Rail Company tracks were removed and the Huckleberry Trail was built back in 1966. Bill and […]

Picture This Country Roads Run

Today’s Picture This Country Roads Run is run along the beautiful country roads near where I grew up.  Whenever I go back to visit, I enjoy a very different type of run than my normal runs.  The runs there are much hillier, and I get chased by the occasional dog; something I’m not used to […]

Picture This Beach Run

I am going to start a new series called Picture This _______ Run.  It will be a series of pictures from runs from an area taken on a single run, or over a series of many runs. I won’t call it Rave Runs because David Willey, editor-in-chief of Runner’s World, said, “I wish you wouldn’t do […]

Running With The Horses

This morning Bill and I are driving to the Outer Banks for a few days of rest and relaxation!  To get you in the mood for our vacation, I thought I’d post a few of my favorite beach running pictures from previous years. If you haven’t figured it out by now, I will run with […]
