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. Last November, I ran the Infinity Gauntlet Challenge with Kellsie’s Krew. I enjoyed my experience and was so impressed with everything Kellsie’s Hope Foundation does that I signed… Continue reading Running with Kellsie’s Krew [and What Happens Between Races]

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]

Pixie Dust Challenge Begins! [Tink 10K Recap]

And we’re off to Saturday morning and the Tink 10K! The alarm went off SUPER early (4 AM) and I was *so* glad that I was doing the race with my friend because it turned out the outlet I plugged my phone into was connected to the light switch. I turned out the light and… Continue reading Pixie Dust Challenge Begins! [Tink 10K Recap]

Tinker Bell Half Marathon 2016 – Race Recap

Before we get to another 4 AM wake up call, let’s back track a moment. For me, one of the most critical pieces of back to back races was self-care (if you missed the 10K recap, you can find it here). I have problems with my hips even on good days and while I had… Continue reading Tinker Bell Half Marathon 2016 – Race Recap

Tinker Bell Half Marathon [Expo] 2016- Before the Race

Maybe it’s the number of times I saw The Sound of Music as a child, but I’m a firm believer in starting at the very beginning. It’s a very good place to start. This story begins on Thursday at the Expo. After a last minute decision to take Thursday off work, I subbed BodyFlow on Thursday morning… Continue reading Tinker Bell Half Marathon [Expo] 2016- Before the Race
