Trail Running 2019…

And I’ve signed up for another trail marathon….not because my last 1/2 marathon went so well (ie it totally didn’t) but because I want to prove to myself that I can do it and because I really really love trail running. Even if I’m super slow and fail terribly at it. Although I think this…

The Final Mile…

Last week I finally hit my goal. For the last number of years I set a goal of running 1000 miles in a year, and the closest I’ve ever gotten was 820. But this year on December 6th I hit that 1000 mile mark. I wish I could say that it was a gorgeous trail…

That Time I Almost Finished Last In A Race….

Um yeah….so that happened this weekend. Technically I wasn’t last, I finished 30 minutes before Clint who had an injured foot and a 20ish year old girl with bad knees, and then about an hour before a 50-something and 3 60+ year olds….so by all accounts I was pretty much last. Granted those running the…

Bolder Boulder 2018

This past Monday on Memorial Day we ran the Bolder Boulder, it was my 6th (I think), Leighton’s 4th, Clint’s 2nd, and Caedmon’s 1st. Leighton and I ran together because he qualified for a faster wave and Clint and Caedmon went together. It was the perfect running day as well, it started out cool and…

Collegiate Peaks Trail Run 2018

Sometimes in life I have really great ideas. Other times….well not so much. After finishing Imogene Pass Run last fall I decided I wanted a spring race and I wanted it to be pretty and not too long. Not too specific but those were my criteria. So in my google searching I stumbled upon the…

Putting the Miles In…

In just a little over a month I’ll be running up some mountains for a trail marathon. I haven’t run a marathon since 2007 and the running part of that was questionable at best as I struggled from mile 13 on and walked a good portion of that race. So I haven’t attempted a marathon…

Running Doubts…

I am two weeks into my trail marathon (or 25.4 mile race which is close enough to a marathon I just call it that) training. It has been a long time since I trained for a distance that long, and when I did last train for a marathon I can’t really say I trained that…

Running Mountains Again….

Well I’ve done it again….registered for a long trail race/run. I’ve really enjoyed running Imogene Pass the past couple of years, but I wanted/needed something to run in the spring. In the past Clint and I have done the Colfax 1/2 marathon, but honestly I get real tired of running on pavement and up a…

Up And Over Again….

The weekend after Labor Day is going to start becoming a tradition for me…the last two years I have spent it running up and over Imogene Pass in south west Colorado from Ouray to Telluride with about 1200 or so other crazy people.  I trained differently this year, more endurance and longer distance runs. Granted…

Running On No Sugar…

So I’m about a month into the no sugar thing. How’s it going you might ask….well today instead of ordering white chicken with my rice bowl I told the lady taking my order that I wanted white chocolate….oops. And the other day when Clint came home from the store I asked him what sweet things…
