Greetings everyone! It has been another busy week (evidenced by light posting) but was a great training week for me. It also just so happens to represent 1 month till race day and, as we have arrived at the end of March, it's a perfect time to admire how great this training plan has been … Continue reading 1 Month Till Race Day + This Week in Review

I figured … Continue reading The New Addition to Our Family…and it’s not what you’re thinking
With 7 training weeks left before the Nike Women's Half Marathon in D.C., I have just enough time to really up my training effort and see what I can do.
