New Year, New Me?

With the start of 2017, there is so much information about resolutions and goals, improvements and changes. How many goals do you have? How will you achieve them? Did you write them down?

This Boot Was Made for Walkin’

A lot of fun things happened this week in the Weekly Wrap...but sadly not much running... Why? Remember that on and off nagging foot pain I'd been writing about. Well, let me clarify, I've had PF in my left foot that had been flaring with my increasing Houston marathon training mileage and really didn't get a… Continue reading This Boot Was Made for Walkin’

NYC Marathon Training Week #18

What an exciting week of training! I'm really behind on blogging after a whirlwind weekend and playing catchup yesterday. I really enjoyed my first week of taper...maybe a little too much! I ran 30 miles and biked 12 miles this week. A far cry from the previous week of 57 miles! No taper crazies...yet. The… Continue reading NYC Marathon Training Week #18
