If you ever…EVER…hear me mention changing my blog. Especially without a REAL PLAN. Please, remind me of this conversation. Pardon the “dust” as my blog is refusing to grow old gracefully and is going to fight it every step of the way…as we all should! I just wish things would cooperate a bit more! S

Season of Thanksgiving…

As Thanksgiving approaches, many are making holiday travel plans, creating menus, making guest lists, holiday shopping, and more. Sure I am doing some of this as well, but I really take this time to reflect. It is interesting as I have found several others in the last 2 days alone that do this too.

This was a light year for me with regards to racing. No major races or goals, more about fun, and getting back into it. Some was due to schedule constraints and some just getting healthy and staying there! The last couple of months of 2015 will bring me a couple of 5k races, maybe a […]

Injuries…more specifically, sports injuries…suck. No sugar coating that fact here. Sure, no injury is “fun”. Many injuries are accidental. Not saying that a sports injury can’t be accidental, but many are preventable. If you fall down when running and bang your knee, sure your knee is likely going
