In May, I ran my first half marathon – it was the Tinkerbell at Disneyland. That was an accomplishment I was super proud about. Who knew I could do such a thing? And now I can say I’ve completed two half marathons! Besides a Disney event, the other event calling my name was the Rock n Roll half marathon in Las Vegas. I thought it
This is my third year running at the Garlic Fest in North Plains, however this was my first time taking part in the 10k. I sometimes like doing the smaller races that aren’t all hyped up and crazy. But, mainly I chose to do this one because it’s timed. In about 2 months I have to submit an official time to Run Disney for my
I have taken a step back on running this summer and have been concentrating instead on getting in at least 10,000 steps a day according to my fitbit. However, I signed up for my 2nd half marathon.

This was my first organized race in 5 months. Although I took a break from running in December, I went right back to it in January beginning to train for my first half marathon in May. So I thought I was prepared to run this 10K. I absolutely underestimated the hills on this course. They were real killers. I finished with an ok time, but
Previously I had done 2 color fun runs & my boys were wanting to do one, so we did the Color Vibe. The nice thing was that kids 12 and under could do the event for free. Of course they didn’t get any swag, but no biggie, I just bought extra color packets for them to throw. Buying color packets isn’t necessary to do the
Almost exactly one year ago I signed my hubby, John, & I up for the Warrior Dash. It was much cheaper if we committed so far in advance. So, I signed us up. Then waited. I have friends who have done it and this muddy, obstacle filled race was on my bucket list of 5k’s. This weekend was finally our time to give our all
