Race Recap – The Virginia Ten Miler – Be ready to suffer.

Well hello there! I haven't been posting nearly as often as I used to, but when you have something worth posting you go for it. Lots of things still aren't back to "normal" yet, but we're working on it. One of things that we did manage to get back is Lynchburg's beloved Virginia 4 & …


Blue Ridge Marathon Training Weeks 3-7 – Track is back. Hills for breakfast (lunch and dinner too).

Woah. Time flies when you're having fun. I wrote up a post for weeks 1 and 2 and planned on sticking to an every other week schedule for posting. I guess that fell through cause here I am finishing up week 7 today. I plan on an easy 5-6 miles later today, if my legs …

Shamrock Half Marathon Race Recap – Catch Meb, or Blow up Trying

I'm back from a long weekend that involved not quite 2 hours of running, but involved over 7 hours of driving. Needless to say, I'm in need of a rest day. That was a lot of driving in a 24 hour period, but it's not all the time that I get an opportunity to run a race that I'd heard SO many great things about.

I'd heard many great things about Shamrock and the legends are real. It's really not just the race though, it's the whole kitten kaboodle. There's an 8k on Saturday, which I unfortunately could not attend and of course they have an after party for that. Sunday is for the half/full marathons, which both start at the same time and the same place. I like that.
