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 […]

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 […]

2021 didn’t find me toeing the line at as many races as in most years, but you can bet that I appreciated each race that was held live after running 100% of my races virtually in 2020. In fact, I spent most of 2020 rehabbing from an injury which resulted in me walking all but […]

Picking My Worst Race Last week I talked about lessons learned at my best race so it’s only appropriate that I give my worst race equal time. There have been some doozies and it was a challenge choosing my worst race… If forced to choose, I’d pick the 2010 Steamtown Marathon because I hit the […]

Picking My Best Race When thinking about my best race, my mind immediately traveled back to my marathons. I’ve run 148 races, 40 of which were marathons, and despite not running a marathon in ten years, I skim over all the other races and land on the 1999 Steamtown Marathon as my best race. What’s […]

Two Local Races Promoting Assault/Abuse Awareness and Prevention

April is both Sexual Assault Awareness Month and Child Abuse Prevention Month; and both important causes are being supported with races during the entire month. The Courage Day 5K and the Fairfax Run for Children 5K/3K are local races that can be run virtually which means no matter where you live, you can register and […]

2020: My Year in Bling

2020 didn’t find me toeing the line at any races, but you can bet that I made the most of the four races I virtually walked or ran. All were local, in fact they were completed on my treadmill, on the circle in our little neighborhood, or on the trails within our community. You can’t […]

...

2019 didn’t find me toeing the line at as many races as most years, but you can bet that I had fun at the four races I ran. The 5K’s were both local, but I traveled to run the half marathon and 4-miler. All were run with either friends or family and I only had […]

...

2018 didn’t find me toeing the line at as many races as most years, but you can bet that I had fun at the seven races I ran. The 5K’s were run with friends, but I traveled to run the half marathon and 25K. Even though I had my husband along as my own personal […]

Jackson Hole Hideout:  The Perfect Place To Stay For The Grand Teton Half Marathon

Nestled in the woods on Heck of a Hill Road in Wilson, Wyoming, the Jackson Hole Hideout was the perfect location to stay for our race getaway. Innkeepers Greg and Beth made us feel right at home and provided a wealth of knowledge about local dining, hiking, and areas of interest. The Grand Teton Half […]

5th Annual Loudoun County 5K For The Homeless

Loudoun County 5K For The Homeless – My neighbor stopped by last week to tell me about an upcoming race he’s been very active in helping to organize. I promised him that I’d get the word out, so if you live in the Northern Virginia area, please be sure to check it out.  On Saturday, November […]

Want To Run The Loudoun Half Marathon And 8K For Free?

Two years ago I PR’d at the Loudoun Half Marathon, a fabulously organized local race benefiting local high schools, and last year I cheered on my friends as they headed out on a beautiful spring morning; many of them running their very first half! Sunday, April 17 Broad Run High School Half Marathon – 7 AM […]
