Do you get pre-race anxiety? I didn’t think I did, but apparently, I do. Apparently, it only happens with half marathons. I’ve done several 5K’s & 10K’s, no anxiety. My first (and last) half? I about cried at the starting line. Thankfully, I had friends toeing the line with me that assured me I could do
Oh, hello March! I was really looking forward to you and my 2nd half marathon, but now I have mixed feelings. I’m currently nursing a hip injury/pain and the fate of that half is now in the air. Sigh. Let’s recap February… 1. 64 ounces of water daily – check. 2. 50 miles – fail.
Why can’t people find better hobbies and use their intelligence to cure cancer or something? Came home from a weekend in Phoenix, only to discover unauthorized charges on my main credit card. The card is in my possession and I’ve reviewed everywhere I’ve been and used it. All legit businesses. Sigh. Our home network is
Somewhere, I lost January. Anyone else feel that way? It seems like just yesterday, we came home from Hawaii and now it is February. How exactly do you just “lose” that many days? Anywho. So, how did I do with my January goals? Let’s recap what they were. As you can see, I failed.
If you’ve been following along, you know that I am currently training for my second half marathon, coming up in March. Last time, I just sort of winged it. I had a loose plan (read: very loose), that I somewhat followed. I didn’t get all my long runs in because I was dealing with a quad
Can you believe it is already 2017? Where did December and 2016 go? I’m sad 2016 is over but excited 2017 is here. Ever get those conflicted feelings? I didn’t accomplish near as many things in 2016 as I wanted, but if I take a step back and observe from the “outside”, I really did
We leave for Hawaii on Wednesday y’all. Nothing is packed and my house is a disaster zone. Breathe, Lacey. I finally got my main 2017 race schedule ironed out and paid for. So far, there is one local race and three travel races. I’ll probably pick up a couple more local races along the
I thought it only appropriate that on this 1 year anniversary of running my very first half marathon, that I finally get the race report written. Better late than never, right? Last fall, on a whim, I entered a blog contest for a race entry over on Enjoying The Course. I didn’t give it much
Every month, I set out with some goals for the month. Some months I hit them and other months I ignore them. I thought it would be a little more beneficial to my success to make those goals public. A sort of accountability group for myself. Each month, I will come share how I did
