I hope you are having a beautiful day!  I was away from the computer most of the weekend but I’ll have a race recap in the morning for you.

Time to see if I can race the Timpanogos fatigue out of my legs.

And two quick sales to let you know about:

*Backcountry’s July 4th Sale is up to 50% off summer gear and apparel HERE!

*My favorite LIQUIDIV is increasing the normal discount to 30% off when you use the code HUNGRYRUNNERGIRL.  I drink this EVERY single day.

What are you up to today?  Have the day off?

We finished our run by completing 4 x 30-second hill sprints on the road. I was grumpy during them (they hurt) but happy afterward, even though it … Continue Reading

(bra, shoes, shorts) I knew that if I tagged along with Kaydi and Carolyn for their run that I was going to be pushed… I was very right. These two are fast and kept me moving when I really wanted to quit. 4-mile w/u, 10 x 2 minutes HARD with 60-second recoveries, c/d and a … Continue Reading
