5 weeks until March 1 (so...almost spring??) That means 5 weeks until the Atlanta marathon (and cheering for the Olympic trials the day before!) Here's how training went this past week: Monday: I had the day off from work, so I met up with my friends Christie and Julie for a run at 8 am. They only wanted to run six miles, so I ran to the Calhoun Beach Club to meet up with them, ran 6 Continue Reading
Weekly Recap: 12 Weeks Until the Atlanta Marathon!
Happy Sunday! I'm here with my weekly recap of training for the Atlanta Marathon on March 1, which is just 12 weeks away! Training this week included a lot of treadmill time; the temperatures weren't terrible outside, but the trails were terrible, so I opted inside for the safety of the treadmill. Dustin was also traveling for work, so I felt guilty putting Ruth (our younger vizsla puppy) in Continue Reading
One Week Until the Indianapolis Marathon!
Just one week to go until the Indianapolis Marathon! I've been counting down the weeks to the Indianapolis for quite a while now. Though this will be my fourth marathon of 2019, (Houston, Antarctica, Brookings), it's the first one where I feel like I might be close to where I was pre-broken leg. My goal is to break 3:35, though I think I would be happy with anything in the 3:3X zone. I've put Continue Reading

Ruth is as cute as ever...but a handful! But back to marathon training, here's how things went last week: Monday: 9 miles with some hills, 9:27 min/mile pace. My coach wanted me to seek out Continue Reading
Weekly Recap: 1 Week Until the Brookings Marathon
Happy Sunday and welcome to May! I'm so glad spring is in full swing; it's wonderful to run outside without worrying about whether or not the trails will be icy, isn't it? Here's how training went this past week for the Brookings Marathon that I will be running with my sister (her goal is around 4:20-4:25): Monday: 6.65 miles with my friend Christie before work, Discover Strength Continue Reading
Thanksgiving and a Cutback Week
Happy Thanksgiving! I hope those of you that celebrate the holiday had a wonderful long weekend. (If you only check in here for the weekly recap, be sure to check out the final recap post of our recent trip to Norway: "Fits on the Road in Flåm and Oslo!") My holiday weekend coincided with a cutback week in mileage for training for the Houston Marathon (my 30th full at the end of January!) It Continue Reading
Weekly Recap: 9 Weeks Until the Houston Marathon
It's Sunday and weekly recap time! If you only check in on Sundays, be sure to read this review from earlier this week of the SPIBeam hat. It's a great product! I am nine weeks out from the Houston Marathon. Here's how training (and life!) went this past week: Monday: 9 miles on the treadmill in the evening. I had hoped to do this run before work, but without combining it into a run Continue Reading
