Why I’m Excited To #RunRichmond Once Again!

Summer is heating up, which means it’s the perfect time to start planning your fall races! Last year, about this time, I was feeling a little worn out and decided not to run a fall marathon.  I felt like I needed a break.  However, that break lasted a lot longer than I planned… and while I did run a spring marathon and a couple of halves, my training has been extremely unfocused.  And those races were pretty mediocre. When I {Read More}

Weekly Marathon Training Recap 9/7 – 9/13

What a week!   I’m a few days late with  my recap, but better late than never, right?! We’ll just jump right in… Monday – Labor Day. We pushed our long run, (usually on Saturday) to Monday because of the holiday.  So the week started with 16 miles.  Not a bad run, but we (my husband and I), got a pretty late start so it was midday and super hot by the time we finished, and our pace was slower {Read More}

2014 Richmond Marathon Recap

  Well here it is, a few days after my marathon and I’m finally getting around to writing my recap. What a fantastic weekend! It began on Friday afternoon when we hopped in the car and headed to Richmond.  We had kind of a late start, and arrived at the expo just before they started closing up.  We took a quick tour of the booths, grabbed our packets and t shirts with out any problems, and headed back to my Sister-In-Law, {Read More}

Homemade Pumpkin Spice Creamer

It’s that time of year again.  The time of year when everywhere you look, you see pumpkin.  From food to  drinks and candles… and I love it!  My favorite way to get my seasonal fix, is in my coffee!  But if you’re like me, you may occasionally go to Starbuck’s for your Pumpkin Spice latte, but you’re not likely to do that everyday.  (Or in my case a couple of times a day, because I have a serious coffee addiction)! {Read More}
