Ten Years Later And Hokie Nation Is Stronger Than Ever

Today I’m asking forgiveness from Holly and Tricia as I link my non-weekly-wrap post to their linkup. Later this evening I will be posting my normal weekly wrap, but today’s anniversary weighs heavily and I need to share the good to balance out the negative… ************************************************* I’m often asked what it is that gives me such love for […]

And That’s A Wrap On The Fall Traveling

I have mixed emotions on the title of today’s blog post.  As season ticket holders of Virginia Tech football, our falls are always filled with fun – and a lot of driving.  This year, though, our Hokies are either under-performing or just not that good.  And I’ve got to admit that it’s a lot harder […]

Labor Day Weekend In Pictures

After I finished up with my last client on Friday morning, Bill and I took off for a long weekend in southwestern Virginia.  We had places to go, people to see, and teams to cheer on… First order of business was visiting my mom and enjoying the beauty of that part of the state…   […]

A Girl Can Dream…..

Sometimes it’s hard being a Hokie football fan – like during the 2014 season, and when I was a student. This past fall, Virginia Tech played Ohio State early on in the season, and I was nervous.  Many of our friends went to Columbus to watch the game.  Bill and I didn’t.  I refused to […]

2014 Hokie Half Marathon Race Recap

After a summer of very serious training, our big day finally arrived, and the 2nd Annual Hokie Half Marathon was upon us! Soon after getting up, I drank two large glasses of water, ate a banana, 1/4 of a bagel with a very thin layer of peanut butter, and a few homemade sweet potato fries.  […]

2014 Hokie Half Marathon Expo

Upon arriving in Blacksburg Friday evening and checking into The Inn at Virginia Tech, the host location for the 2nd Annual Hokie Half Marathon & 5K Race Expo, Bill and I were greeted warmly by the staff who immediately asked us if we were there for the race.  They reminded us that the expo would […]

Lessons I Learned as a Young Hokie…

It’s no secret that I’m a Hokie fan through and through, and I’m very proud of my alma mater.  So much in fact, that this spring I wrote What It’s Really Like To Be A Hokie.  So on the eve of the Hokie Half Marathon, I’ll shared my lessons learned at Virginia Tech.   Lessons […]

If All Weekends Could Be So Fun…

Sometimes you have a weekend that’s just perfect!  This past weekend Bill and I went to Blacksburg for the Spring Maroon and White Game.  All the way home we kept talking about how much fun we had!  There’s just something about Blacksburg that makes us both so happy; and we’ve always said that if we […]

No Huckleberry Trail Run For Me

This weekend we were back in Blacksburg for Virginia Tech’s Homecoming game against the University of North Carolina.  Our first order of business was to find a restaurant that could seat 14 people in less than two hours.  Champs Sports Bar was up to the task and seated us immediately!  While we were eating, who […]

Running First, Dodging Rain Drops Later

Since Bill and I were in Blacksurg for the game, we met Meagan for a long run this morning.  When we got to the trail parking area, we noticed a bridge under construction for what we think is part of the Huckleberry Trail extension to the south.  Of course I may be spreading rumors, but […]

2013 Hokie Half Marathon Race Recap

Why was I so happy at 5:30 in the morning?  The day I’d been waiting for since April was finally here, that’s why! And I’d just checked the temperature for the 7 AM race start, and it couldn’t have been more perfect! Everyone in our group had snagged Lot A parking passes (the lot closest […]

Weekend Without a Run

Saturday morning I woke up at 4 AM to get my day started.  Only two things will get me up that early without complaining.  Running and Virginia Tech football… We rolled into Blacksburg at 9:30 AM on a perfect fall day for the 1:30 PM kickoff.  We tailgate with several other couples that we were […]

Are You Ready For Some Football?

Today was one heck of a busy day with lots of driving (riding for me), tailgating, cheering, and all around having a great time; and I’m just now getting around to giving you two minutes of my undivided attention!  Let’s just say that my day involved a little bit of this… And this… Tomorrow  I […]

Virginia Tech 3.2-Mile Run in Remembrance

Yesterday afternoon we drove to my favorite place on earth, Virginia Tech.  I absolutely loved going to school at Tech, and I even met my husband there!   We were thrilled when Joseph, our oldest son, decided to attend VT; and even more thrilled when he met Julie, ‘the cutest and sweetest girl in the world’ […]
