Grandma’s Marathon Race Report

I’m going to start this race report with two lists. First, a list of lessons I learned. We’re all here for the takeaways, right? Don’t trust people who tell you races are flat. Always wear sunscreen. Don’t part your hair down the middle for marathons. Don’t skip the warmup ever ever ever. Go ahead and... Continue Reading →

Monthly Mileage: February 2019

Wow, February, there you went. SO SHORT. My total mileage wasn’t super high this month because a) there weren’t that many days and b) I raced twice and we backed mileage down for both. I also traveled the last week of February which forced me to take an off day and then I caught a... Continue Reading →

Race Report: Anthem 5k 2019

It’s always fun to line up for the Louisville Triple Crown series — a 5k, 10k and 10 miler each two weeks apart.

I usually just plan one season at a time, setting my A race and figuring everything else out. But I worry that lassiez-faire approach hurt me this year. My goal race wasn’t enough of a priority — and I think some of that is being too comfortable with Monumental.  As I was concluding I wasn’t running a... Continue Reading →

Cool things that happened: Placed second at the Carmel Marathon and almost tied my PR in not-great conditionsSet a new women’s course record at the Backside Trail Half Marathon and won two other half marathons all in...

Monthly Mileage: December 2018

My friend Kaci, left, and I living our best sloth lives this month. Boy, December, you are always a hot mess. Kudos to every runner out there who stuck with any semblance of a plan this month. At the beginning of December we went on a mini family vacation which actually was a good running... Continue Reading →

I’m in a magazine!
