Running with Kellsie’s Krew [and What Happens Between Races]

Remember when I said I’d get back to what I did after the 10K? I always keep my promises. But, before we get there… we have to start here.

Wrapping Up the PDC [Tink Half 2017 Recap]

I’ll come back to what I did Saturday after the 10K, I promise. But, I thought I’d wrap up the races first. Warning… this is long. This recap begins with my #flatme from the night before the race. I ALWAYS lay out my clothes, shoes, accessories, gels, etc… the night before (and usually I photograph them too).… Continue reading Wrapping Up the PDC [Tink Half 2017 Recap]

Of Long Absences and Other Things

Well, it’s been nearly a year since I’ve written. Apparently. The thing is? I’ve had things to say. Like, it’s been a busy year. Not in the “it’s been busy” excuse style (although for SURE I could use it), but in the stuff happened sense. There was A LOT of running and training. There was… Continue reading Of Long Absences and Other Things

How Do You Measure A Year?

Even if you aren’t big into Broadway, you probably recognize that title. Perhaps you even sang it to yourself? 525,600 minutes. 525,000 moments so dear. So, how do you measure a year?  For 2016, I seem to be measuring the year in race miles: 13.1. 19.3. 13.1. 19.3. Did I tell you I was doing… Continue reading How Do You Measure A Year?

Look Forward: 3 Easy Ways to Ditch the Post-Race Blues
