ZOOMA Texas Race Weekend (My First DNS Race)

This past Friday morning, my husband and I headed to Bastrop for the ZOOMA Texas race. I was tired, but excited for the day ahead. After a couple of stops along the way, we made it to the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort. […]

Plano Balloon Festival Half-Marathon

Hey guys! How was your weekend? I had an awesome one! The weather could not have been any more perfect, which is one of the reasons that I ended up running a half marathon on the spur of the moment. You see, my brother sent me a text a few days ago and told me that he was running the Plano Balloon Festival Half. He had originally planned to run the 5k, then decided to switch to the half at the last minute. Running the Wounded Warrior race with him was really fun, so one thing led to another, and by Friday afternoon I had one of these in my […]

Wounded Warrior Half Race Recap

Mustangs of Las Colinas

This past Sunday, I ran my second half-marathon! I woke up at around 3:30 and couldn’t go back to sleep. I got up and drank some coconut water (my usual pre-race drink), then laid back down to see if I could get a few more minutes of sleep.

I never did get back to sleep, so needless to say, I was exhausted. I let my husband sleep in […]

A Salute to Veterans Shoreline 10k Race Recap

This past Saturday, we got up at the crack of dawn to get ready to head over to The Colony so that I could run the American Heroes: A Salute to Veterans 10k race. This was somewhat of a last minute decision. You see, my brother and I were going to run the Big D 30k relay this coming weekend, but he had to back out because he hadn’t been able to get his training in. I’m really not sure why. He only has a full time job and three kids to take care […]

The Showdown Half Race Recap

showdown half-marathon

This past Saturday I ran the Showdown Half Marathon. It was my very first half, and I can’t tell you how proud of myself I am. It was honestly THE hardest thing I’ve ever done physically. After the race, we had to head out of town for a birthday dinner and didn’t get home until late, so the last couple of days, I have basically just been getting plenty of rest and haven’t even turned my computer on until […]

My First 15K Race!

This past Saturday, I ran my first 15K race! Running in a race was something that I had been thinking about doing for several months, but hadn’t actually followed through on. I learned a few weeks ago that my brother was training for his first half-marathon. That’s when I decided to look and see if there were any races coming up that I could participate in. […]
