Running the Alphabet: Races and Locations S Through Z

Why Run the Alphabet? I loved the challenge of finding a race I’d run for each letter of the alphabet so when I saw it as a prompt for the Tuesday Topics Linkup, I set myself into gear to finish a draft I’d started months earlier after seeing similar posts by Judy and Darlene. Having the alphabet broken […]

Why Run the Alphabet? When I first read Judy’s post way back in April (and then later Darlene’s) listing places traveled and races run according to the alphabet, I thought it would the perfect way to reminisce about my own races. I challenged myself to create a similar list; however, it took seeing it as […]

Training for My Next Century The Reston Century is three weeks from today. I rode 100 miles on June 21, so the distance doesn’t concern me. The 5,705 feet of elevation gain; however, does – I know I can do it, it just might not be pretty. Prior to last year’s Reston Century we went […]

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links   Garmin, Don’t You Know Who I Am? I ride back-to-back days on the weekends often, but with a new heart rate monitor (affiliate link) linked to my bike Garmin (affiliate link), it spit out a little bit more information than this self-described cardio junkie wanted to see.

I had promised to help my neighbors with the project – removing the extremely well attached fence from around their […]

Brag Time: Remembering the Good Ole Days of Marathoning

Blogging Specifically to Recap Races After my 2010 Boston Marathon, I wrote up a recap in a notes file on my Facebook. A couple of years later, I started blogging specifically to recap races. By the time I started my blog, though, my marathon days were behind me. I had so many fabulous memories from […]

Taking Advantage of the Longest Day of the Year This time of year, I love that it’s already daylight as I make my way out of our bedroom at 5 or 5:30 AM and I don’t need to use my phone’s flashlight to guide the way. I’m not sure why, but this year I was […]

Running Less, Cycling More I have a draft blog post entitled “How to Know When It’s Time to Trade in the Running Shoes for Cycling Shoes.” I started it a couple of years ago during a pity party while sidelined with my ongoing back issue caused by minor disc herniations that love to act up […]

Advanced Blogging Over My Pay Grade Totally unrelated to my workouts, and feel free to skip ahead, WordPress notified me a few weeks ago that I was running an old PHP version (scripting language – yes, I had to look it up) which would no longer be supported in July. Updating it myself seemed overwhelming […]

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links   Figuring Things Out A busy week kept me off of my bike so I wasn’t able to give my knee a try after Saturday’s little flare-up during the Tour de Madison. I ran Tuesday morning, but that didn’t go as well as hoped and after about a mile […]
