I DID IT! And now you get to hear what I think about while I run!

I am still super excited that I complete the Pikes Peak Marathon, yesterday! I can honestly say, even up to the point where I was toeing the line, I doubted whether or not I could do it. I kept telling myself, "Just be SMART!!"I listened to myself and started out with an easy run up Ruxton and onto Barr Trail. I would walk when it got a bit too rocky or a bit too steep. There were several times that I felt a twinge in my right foot/ankle and it would make me a bit nervous. Throughout the race I…See More

7 days until PPM!!!!

To say I am excited to participate in the Pikes Peak Marathon, next week, would be an understatement! To say I am nervous to participate in the PPM, would be an understatement.I felt my nerves during my drive to participate in the Woodland Park Mayor's Cup, yesterday. Driving towards the west, seeing Pikes Peak in front of me, flooded me with many emotions. Some of those emotions were excitement and others were of doubt and regret.It has been a lifelong goal to run the marathon and with the…See More

Forgive yourself! Be flexible!

When I wrote my last post, I was literally boarding a plane to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. We headed to this beautiful part of the world as a graduation present for my step-son, Dylan. As I packed for this trip, I packed workout gear for everyday. The hotel we stayed at had a good gym, including spin bikes. My motivation to workout was high, especially coming off one of my best training weeks, in awhile.I don't know how many of you pack workout gear and never touch it, but that was me on this…See More

Pretty good week!

The past week has included some good training days. In the past 7 days, I have worked out for 5 of them. That is great news, even though it has not included any running. I have used the stationary bike and a couple versions of elliptical machines. In addition, I lifted 3 times!!I am excited about my opportunity to run the Pikes Peak Marathon and I am going to do everything I can to ensure that I can finish and stay healthy.An interesting part about cross training is the lack of personal…See More

Frustrated, but Thankful!

 actually wrote this post yesterday and almost submitted it, but chose to sit on it for a day and look at it again today. I don't usually do that, I usually think of something I want to share during a run and then just sit down, write, and then hit submit.I do not know why I chose to sit on this one. Maybe it was the hope my thoughts about my race would change or maybe it was the sheer vulnerability I put in writing. Truth be told, it was both. My friend Dan Angeles suggested that one of the…See More

Summer Roundup Trail Run - 11 days and counting!

I just registered for the 2nd leg of the Triple Crown Series! The Summer Roundup Trail Run will be on July 9th! I truly love the challenge of Bear Creek Trails. The views are spectacular and the entire race is on trails. There are some good hills that keep runners honest. If you run smart, you also get some good opportunities to gain ground on the long downhills!The 3-loop course will weed out the runners that have been doing the work from those that have not. I may be in the later group, but I…See More

Long Term goals still in sight, even through the haze of loss

Over the last few years, I have experienced the loss of many people close to me. From family members to former students. The saddest part is that in my life time I have attended more funerals for young people taken too early. The hardest losses have been the losses of my two grandmas, my grandpa, and my mother-in-law.My Grandma Cherry passed away almost 3 years ago, at the age of 93. She lived with my family through most of my childhood. She helped my parents care for us, came to all our…See More

How many of you are running this amazing race, in one of the most beautiful parks in the United States of America?I am, I am! This is one of my favorite running events.

Happy National Running Day!

My daughter has swim practice near Palmer Park, so I ran from her practice into Palmer Park.My blogs will continue with the theme of "Finding Balance", and I will share my struggles, my triumphs and people that have helped me along the way. While I was running through…See More
