Tu-Tu Magnificient

Tu-Tu Magnificient

Running world was taken by storm this week. After the selfie bandit runner at the Georgia Half Marathon (who continues to get coverage from media outlets who think her stunt was extremely funny instead of wrong); there was this, SELF Magazine criticizing tutu runners – SELF Magazine’s ridicule of the tutu runners had almost everyone up in arms against them. One of the main reasons runners of every kind – serious, age group winners, recreational, back of packers, fun runners and…

Selfie Bandit at Georgia Half Marathon

Selfie Bandit at Georgia Half Marathon

In any race, you can see all sorts of people – different sizes, different hairstyles, different clothes, different pace, … but there was someone entirely different this Sunday – a Selfie Bandit at Georgia Half Marathon. Anyone who reads my race reports knows that I take pictures during a race. Lots of pictures. In fact, I was chastised for that habit right after my first marathon. But selfies now … Even though it is the easiest way to get your mugshot into…

Georgia Publix Half Marathon 2014 – Race Report

Georgia Publix Half Marathon 2014 – Race Report

I ran with my running buddies and could’ve run 5 more miles after…

Enjoy the Run, Enjoy the Life

Enjoy the Run, Enjoy the Life

As a person who has absolutely fallen in love with running, I cannot imagine otherwise. Choosing not to run and/or choosing not to love running. Maybe it’s just a reflection on my personality for wearing my heart on my sleeve, but I was reminded yesterday why I keep going back to look for those moments. The group run this past weekend was hosted by a local running store as a preview for the Publix Georgia race course. And as race…

Hibernating my Dream

Hibernating my Dream

Back in November, I started the 6 month training path to my “Mystery Marathon“. I had my dream race picked for marathon #5 and all that was needed was to train consistently.  A destination race. In a city that I’ve always loved and I’ve wanted to visit again. I blocked flights for my family last Tuesday with the intention of paying for them on Friday morning. Thursday morning, due to unforeseen, unrelated circumstances, I was forced to change plans. I had…
