Why I think we run races (& pay a lot to do them), and 6 years of blogging!!

One last run on the Arizona dirt trails until the next time I am in town.  I held about an 8:06 average for an hour and that felt really comfortable.  I am taking that as a sign that the post-marathon recovery has gone well and that my body is starting to wake-up again. It only … Continue Reading

Arizona running, what the rest of the crew is up to and YOUR running accomplishments!

Arizona running (other than during the summer months) is one of my favorites.

Six reasons why I adore early morning running and family reunions at Costco.

Josse and I hit the running trail quite early and even though I woke up 4 times in the middle of the night freaking out that I was late meeting her for our run, early morning runs are my favorite for a few reasons.  *Please note I will be most likely changing my tune on … Continue Reading

Little guy has quite the cool hair style these days. Andrew and I have been craving sweet potatoes for quite some time … Continue Reading
