The Good, The Bad, The Funny

The Good, The Bad, The Funny

I’ll break this up into three sections. The good. The bad. The funny.   The good: Halloween and Baby Girl’s room = success!!! I took the rather freaky approach to Halloween and went with how I feel: she’s trying to escape. I definitely freaked a few people out, but hell, it’s Halloween. I had about a … Continue reading

Publix Half Marathon Recap

Publix Half Marathon Recap

Kevin and I picked up our race packs at the Expo on Saturday and I was feeling like a boss. I was 100% certain I was ready for the hell ahead of me. Y’all. I was not.                   I woke up Sunday morning feeling a bit under the … Continue reading

Half Marathon Jitters

Half Marathon Jitters

Petrified is an understatement. As I was falling asleep last night I sat up and looked at Kevin and said, “I should have done a 10k race before. Then I’d be more prepared.” Why? I have no idea. I’ve run nearly double the distance of a 10k during training, but for some reason I’m petrified. … Continue reading

Where is my beer?

Where is my beer?

Kevin and I ran the Michelob Ultra 5k on Saturday. I absolutely loved the course. Tons of rolling hills, but for some odd reason I really enjoyed them. The course was pretty too, lots of farmland and that old country feel to it.  I certainly didn’t set a PR, but considering I haven’t actually trained … Continue reading

13.1

13.1

So, I did it. Well, actually I haven’t done it. But I’m going to do it. I will press the “pay” button and have registered myself (and Kevin) for our very first HALF MARATHON. I pressed it. WTFWTFWTF This is the same feeling I had as I was contemplating my first Tri. The self doubt. … Continue reading

5k Epiphany

5k Epiphany

Here it is: I am no longer an athlete…but I will be one again. It’s incredible how quickly you lose it when you don’t train all the damn time. Wow! My morning started out GREAT! I’d lost 3.2lbs and felt back on track – finally. A sense of accomplishment and confidence overwhelmed me. I didn’t … Continue reading

Why you rain on me?

Why you rain on me?

Look how excited I was after the ride was over…the only time it wasn’t raining. So, Up the Creek Without a Pedal was – let’s just say I needed a damn paddle. It rained Oh dear God did it rain. It rained lightly, it rained in torrential downpours, it rained for an hour…it didn’t stop … Continue reading

My thought on hills…

My thought on hills…

I almost hate hills as much as I hate running…maybe more – it’s a toss up. I hate everything about hills – especially the way my boobs take on a life of their own. I digress, I’m doing the “Up The Creek Without a Pedal” ride tomorrow. It’s 45 miles. I was assured by Kevin … Continue reading

The Hashing Hulk

Have any of you heard of this glorious thing called hashing? Apparently it’s when you do races/run and incorporate drinking. On Saturday I partook in my first run that involved alcohol: the Atlanta Tap N Run. I ran, mostly walked and occasionally jogged this race with my husband and my best friend and we had a blast. There were … Continue reading
