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

So, I am back to running after a 4 month medical and PCS hiatus. Why, why do I always do this to myself? It is at that point of sucking. Royally. I know it will get better, but for right now, I just want to die. Huge goal though, 3 half marathons in 2017. I’m
Yes, this report is REEEEAAAALLLLY late. Cut me some slack okay, life is CRRRAAAAAZZZY! :-) Last year, Bryan and I decided to run a race together and it just so happened that the ET Full Moon was within a couple of days of my 1 year post-chemo anniversary (yes, cancer patients celebrate ALL the anniversaries).
On August 28th, I celebrated two years post-chemo. Two years of kicking cancers ass to the curb. Two years of suffering through side effects and living life anyway. What have I been doing in those 2 years…well, let’s see. Obviously, NOT blogging. LOL! I RAN my first 5K in 5 years. I spent a week at
