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]

No Excuses | Get Ready To Fly

It’s time to switch gears – on from Princess and on to Tink. It’s time to find my wings and get ready to fly. I’ve been in a bit of a running AND work out rut since I got back from PHM Weekend. That does me no good when I have seven weeks to a two race… Continue reading No Excuses | Get Ready To Fly

Learning The Galloway Way

The runDisney runners out there probably already know about the Galloway way (named for Jeff Galloway). I’ve also heard it called Gallowalking. From the runDisney website: Jeff’s quest for the injury-free marathon training program led him to develop group training programs in 1978, and to author Runner’s World articles which have been used by hundreds of… Continue reading Learning The Galloway Way

Cross Training Spotlight: BodyFlow™

It’s been awhile since my first spotlight, so it seemed about time for another. So, let’s talk about BodyFlow™. Fun fact: It’s only called BodyFlow in the United States. If you go anywhere else in the world, or are visiting this blog from anywhere else in the world (hi! welcome!), you’ll see BodyBalance™. So, Flow/Balance –… Continue reading Cross Training Spotlight: BodyFlow™

Proof of Time

The runDisney races are BIG. We’re talking thousands and thousands of people. In fact, this past weekend, I read that nearly 16,000 participated in the Disneyland Half Marathon and nearly 29,000 participated in some part of Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend (there was also a 5k, 10k, and several kids’ races – so CUTE!). Wow! Right????… Continue reading Proof of Time

Hill Repeats

Wow! Slacking on my blogging… I need to brainstorm some ideas. 🙂 Today, we’re talking hill repeats. Some of you reading this shuddered at reading it because you KNOW… and some of you are like, uh, what? It is exactly what it sounds like. Hills. Repeatedly. It’s also just as much fun as it sounds… Continue reading Hill Repeats
