2017 was a challenging year for our family. Many days were full of doctor’s appointments and hours on the road getting to and from. Lot’s of paperwork to convince the Air Force to move us and then the move itself. We persevered though and made it to 2018. Hallelujah! On a personal level, 2017 was
You know that old adage, “the older you get, the faster time goes”? No? Did I just pull that out of thin air? Well, regardless, it is true. Last I looked, it was January and now here we are, almost halfway through April. I must be getting REALLY old. As crazy as life is, I did
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

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
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
Thirteen Things I Am Looking Forward To In 2017 1. Heading back to college. 2. Jacey taking driver’s ed and getting her license. I think!? 3. The Alamo 13.1 Half Marathon and a weekend in San Antonio. I’m having Texas withdrawals. 4. Hitting 2 years until retirement! 5. Getting stronger. 6. Celebrating 18 years of
