Three Things Thursday (a.k.a. I need an alternate Title)

Three Things Thursday (a.k.a. I need an alternate Title)

(I need an alternate title if I’m going to write 3 random things. There’s nothing wrong with TTT, but … hmm.. would like to be a little more creative) 1. I’ve been soooo tired this week. Could be excess work, could be stress, could be getting only 1.5  running days (I walked one of those days) and those were past 8:30pm. I’m a get ’em done by 8:30 AM kind of girl, so the pm doesn’t really do anything for…

When work interferes with running

When work interferes with running

This says it all. (I don’t know their web url, so linking to facebook.) ps: I’ve been reading about themes in blogs – Tanget Tuesday, Wordless Wednesday, Three Things Thursday, etc. Maybe I’ll borrow from it so I can keep my blog flowing when work is interfering with blogging. Dang work …. can’t live wihout it, can’t live with it. 

Bucket List of Races

Bucket List of Races

Inspired by Today’s #dailymission over at Dailymile What race would you most want to do, if you didn’t have to worry about any logistics (money, family, work, injury, etc.)? Yes, I have a bucket list of marathon races in-spite of having just one year of running under my belt. And please ignore the slight fact that I have never yet run a marathon.  London Marathon  (Last year, after I saw “Run Fat Boy, Run”, I had a dream that I was pregnant and running London;…

New BFF on Saturday Mornings

New BFF on Saturday Mornings

Finally, after months of wavering, I joined a running group. I’m hoping that Get Fit Atlanta will help me get to the start line at Chicago. I’ve had 3 group runs. I found out that I’m still very very awkward running in a group – especially where everyone is faster than I am. All 3 days, I was the straggler. I’m sometimes embarrassed, when someone slows down to stick with me and sometimes sad, when everyone else is getting valuable advice…

Wings to carry you to the finish line, literally – Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend. Run Disney announced their latest race in January in Disneyland. Maybe this is one I’ll do with my girls over a long vacation when they are all grown up.

The Mecca of all Marathons

The Mecca of all Marathons

Almost everyone who runs long distance is aware of this special event – The Boston Marathon. One of the Race Director’s started the event after attending an Olympics marathon; and selected the Patriot’s day to celebrate the US’s great runner – Paul Revere. Its since grown in prestige and getting a BQ (Boston Qualifier) is a huge huge deal. This day, all records were smashed as the first 4 male runners broke the world record. 2:03:02 – An amazing time…

The Best Compliment of them all

The Best Compliment of them all

Ever since I’ve been consistently running, I’ve received a lot of compliments from people; even after I stopped worrying about weight loss and concentrated on just having fun. I got my best compliment today. I stepped into the house after a run – hair wild from the wind, sweat running down my face and stinking from the sweat, wearing my regular Brooks running Capri and full length shirt. As I was trying to find a snack to fuel on, the…
