The TCS NYC Marathon IS Happening for Me This Year!

So, here’s the thing with me and the NYC Marathon. Last year, I was fortunate enough to get in through the lottery on my very first try. Y’all, that doesn’t happen very often for anyone. As fortunate as I was, I had to defer when Brooke and I became a family of three. I deferred for financial reasons. I was unsure of how exactly our little guy was going to affect our finances. It was a wise decision. When I deferred, I learned that I could cancel my spot last year and have a guaranteed spot this year (provided I paid my race fee this year). If you’ve followed this blog, you know I’ve been banking on running in the 2017 TCS NYC Marathon ever since I cancelled last year. To get there, I knew there were several gates I must get through first. Read more ›

Always Compete So You Can Win Forever

Y’all, I’ve been wanting to share this video forever. When I watched it the first time, all I could think was that I needed to share this video on my blog. I had a downer of a workout week. So, I thought I’d share something positive instead and make this a “Motivation Monday” instead of the weekly recap. I know that this video is nearly 2 hours long. However, it’s so worth a listen. The good news is that you don’t have to actually watch the video. You won’t gain too much from watching over merely listening. Read more ›

Long Ago, In a Race Far Far Away – Star Wars Light Side Half Marathon

With the Star Wars Dark Side Half Marathon going on this weekend at Walt Disney World, it reminds me that I never got up a race recap for the Star Wars Light Side Half Marathon at Disneyland. So, let’s rectify that.

I was up at O’ Dark Hundred hours again to head off to Disneyland to finish the Rebel Challenge. The race costumes were pretty great (yet again) for this race. I even ran into Barf from Spaceballs in my corral! Read more ›

Catching Up…

The past few weeks have been a little crazy in my house. So crazy that I haven’t completed a single workout in two weeks time. After the week of getting back to 4 workouts in one week, I was wiped out. So much so, that I didn’t get out and run in the middle of the week. I took that Friday off because….

I had a rehearsal for the Azusa Pacific University Choir and Orchestra 36th reunion concert! I had initially thought I’d get in my track workout in the morning before the rehearsal. Then, my car broke down and I spent the morning waiting on it to get fixed. The car was back and in good shape by 3pm. Unfortunately, I needed to be in Azusa by 5:30pm. So, no time for running.
