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…Continue

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…Continue

At the 2017 Super Half-Marathon
The Garden of the Gods 10-Mile Run has come and gone. Last time I ran it felt like another lifetime ago, AND it was a different course, but it was still hard not to compare my…Continue

As many of you all know, Colorado Springs has an amazing running community. While I don't have anything to compare it to, I can not imagine it could be better anywhere else.
This year my training, racing, and life in general has been significantly improved by that community. I don't believe I would be as fit as I am or as far into my "comeback year" as I am if it weren't for the community, especially my "neighborhood." The past two weekends have really brought that into…Continue

No lions on the course this year for the Garden of the Gods 10 mile and 10k, but there were plenty of runners and one bear. I did not witness the bear on the course but Don Sanborn snapped some pictures and those pictures went viral. Thank you to the bear that wondered out on to the course and helped make the Garden of the Gods race world famous. Each day I am seeing…Continue

Tthe first part of the Triple Crown of Running is now complete. Before I get in to my ramblings, I feel I have to give a shout out to everyone who made Garden of the Gods 10 Miler possible. So, thank you to Tim Bergsten, Race Director extraordinaire, and the race staff: Ron Ilgen, Micky Simpson, Susan Gyunn, and Alicia Pino. Also a big thank you to those who did the timing, and as always, HUGE SHOUT out to the volunteers! What a great group of people. I was a…Continue

What a day this turned out to be! I woke up at 0430 to get ready for the first leg of the triple crown series, Garden of the Gods 10 miler. I have been running this race since 2011, but I was nervous. This year was a new course; I was also a Mighty Marmot. I didn't want to fail being a part of this team. I knew from previous years, I could finish this race within the time requirement for the Peak. I was still nervous as I could be. My husband, Gerald, was nervous too. We didn't know what to…Continue

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. I only run my favorite races more than once. The challenge and beauty of the Garden of the Gods 10 miler always brings me back. I ran GOG several times through high school and 3 times after I had my two children. Below are my times, after being a mom.

I celebrated the day by going on a run. It was a beautiful morning and I was lucky to enjoy it on a nice, peaceful EASY 3 miles! 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…Continue

So, what does that mean? Why was I chosen to be a Marmot? What do I have to write about? What do I have to offer you all?? I have been told by many (and have even said it myself) that I have a "good story." But, it feels weird to say that because it is not a story I want to have. Except for the latest part. And maybe that is the part that…Continue

I'm nervous..... Holy (insert colorful metaphor here) I am nervous. First, I have never been a blogger. I don't really read blogs, and I'm not sure about the "blogging rules." I'm definitely a wordy person, I love to write, and I have volumes and volumes of personal diaries dating back to when I was 10 years old, so I think that blogging may eventually make a lot of…Continue
I have thought hard about what I might share with you all, as I train for the Triple Crown of Running Series. I have chosen to not only share exciting recounts of my mileage, but how I struggle with family, work, life balance, daily. I…Continue
