Running Like a Spring Chicken

It just has not been my time in internet-land for these past 24 hours. Long story short, upon trying to submit my 200-point, 2 hour final online last night, the internet cut out, forcing me to get into an email argument with the professor and having to take it again. Taking it a second time … Continue reading

My First Half-Marathon: A Recap & a Journey

Hopefully you can see that! If you click on it, it will enlarge (I hope!) Those are my half-marathon stats. Here’s the breakdown: Mile 1 was pretty much downhill so I was coasting down at about a 9min/mile pace and whizzed by the 2:15 pace girl and decided to slow the eff down. Stephen cruised … Continue reading

Half-Marathon: Completed

  My beautiful parents and I after I crossed the finish line of my first 13.1 race. It feels so good, almost too good. But there ain’t no rest for the wicked; I have a ton of homework and lots of finals to prepare for, so I will be back with the race recap a … Continue reading

13.1

13.1 miles in 2:11:39 I did it, we did it; hugs and some held back tears at the finish line. I found Christina at mile 10 and it was a God-send because my morale & my legs were failing me. At around mile 11 and 12 people started dropping like flies. At mile 13.1, all … Continue reading

I’m not sure when it all started, our new-found love for running, but we were hooked when we completed the Illinois Marathon Relay last year. I’ve pretty much taken over the blog … Continue reading

I love this little girl with my whole heart. She’s been struggling with being adopted and feeling out of … Continue reading

Waiting For My Garmin To Charge..

I somehow convinced Yessenia to run with me today. Actually, not really but a series of events lead up to her being willing to accompany me. Right now I’m waiting for my Garmin to have enough battery to last thru the run. While I’m waiting.. here’s an update: I got my body composition checked on … Continue reading

Running & CrossFit

I literally ate myself silly this weekend. This is what happens when I have too much time on my hands- I’m so bored that I convince myself that I am hungry. It’s probably in my best interest to NOT gain 10 pounds before the half marathon in fear that my body will be incapable of … Continue reading
