Catching Up!

Catching Up Wow, we are past the first week of August already and I have to admit I haven’t been able to regain my blogging momentum as much as I had hoped.  I find with blogging that as much as I enjoy writing and interacting with my relatively small circle of regular readers, there is… Read More »

The Comeback Trail

Comeback Finally time to reflect on my first week on the comeback trail.  I think coming back may apply to blogging as much as it does to my running right now.  But, now that I have been able to return to some easier workouts, I’m feeling a bit more inspired to spend some time on… Read More »

Pacing a Marathon Training Plan

Pacing a Marathon Plan A few weeks ago I wrote a post about developing and planning my next marathon training plan.  After some considerable deliberation, I threw away the plan that I had drafted and reviewed what I had done previously in 2015 when I trained for my most successful marathon in Chicago.  I realized that my preparation for… Read More »

Monthly Goals Check – May

There’s still a couple weeks left in the month so probably not too late to get to the Monthly Goals Check – May edition!  And, if it is too late, here it is anyway because I’d hate to get to the end of the year and be missing one month!!  Blogging, much like my running,… Read More »

Motivational Music Monday #11

There was a week that just flew by and before we know it, it’s Sunday night and I’ve got to get to the tunes! Not enough time for any other posts in the last week but hopefully I’ll catch up a bit over the next few days.  I’ve also decided to undertake my Project Management Professional… Read More »

Marathon Training Checkin

It’s been several weeks since the last marathon training update and, behold, in just 3 weeks we will be heading to Salt Lake City, Utah for marathon number 2 of 2016 and state number 6.  So, time for a marathon training checkin. The past few weeks have been crazy busy, up and down, and wreaked havoc on my… Read More »

Friday Thoughts

I was going to post an update on the marathon training status as it has been a month or so since I’ve checked in on progress for the Salt Lake City marathon.  But, it’s been a crazy busy week and me and Wifey have spent a fun happy hour catching up on the trials and… Read More »
