Workout Wednesday: Do you pick things up and put them down?

Whoops! A workout Wednesday post on a Thursday! I’m sure you all know how it is when life gets busy and sometimes it is just hard to adult. Did the time change for daylight savings affect anyone else this week?  I didn’t think an hour could really have that kind of impact but I am definitely feeling it – especially… Read more »

Workout Wednesday: Onward and Upward!

      3 Comments on Workout Wednesday: Onward and Upward!

Just kidding spring is not coming as I over-zealously stated in my last Workout Wednesday post!

(We were lucky to be down there for a week at the end of February) Good news though, I… Read more »

Running Against My Body

      4 Comments on Running Against My Body

Have you ever felt, when you run, that no matter how much you love to run it feels like your body is revolting? Like, heels in, arms crossed, refusing to help in any way to make running a little easier – or at least not so much effort?

Race Recap: Pioneer 8k!

      No Comments on Race Recap: Pioneer 8k!

WOW! The Harrier’s Pioneer 8k was a great start to the New Year and the race season! I had a better-than-expected race and was surprised to find I placed 6th in my age group!

It’s time to change it up!
