  • First ever triathlon (or how to check your ego)

    August 15, 2011

    Trying to change it up a bit and take a break from pounding pavement for 26.2 miles, it was decided to give it a go at a triathlon.  Now, while I can run until the cows come home, I can’t swim very well.  Actually, I’m like a fish… out of water… in the water.  That’s […]

  • The 2010 Columbus Marathon Experience

    October 21, 2010

    This past weekend I ran the 2010 Columbus Marathon.  It was my 2nd marathon ever and while I felt a little more comfortable while running, it was still a grueling task.  Like usual, I really only trained during the weekends and had very little mid week runs.  So, like anything else, you get out what […]

  • May 2nd 2010 Pittsburgh Half Marathon

    May 11, 2010

    In my never ending attempt to punish my body and hate my knees I’ve been training to what I hope will amount to another full marathon this year.  Along the way I figured it would be a good idea to give a half marathon another shot.  If you’ve never been to Pittsburgh, I recommend you […]

  • 2009 White Rock Half Marathon

    December 17, 2009

    On December 13, 2009 I ran the White Rock Half Marathon and almost didn’t live to tell about it.  I will begin, like my previous post, on how horrible I am at training.  I had been training pretty consistently for a few weeks and was ready for the half marathon about 5 weeks before the […]

  • 2009 Akron Marathon (or How I Wished I Died)

    October 21, 2009

    This past weekend On September 26th, 2009 I ran my first marathon.  The 2009 Akron Marathon to be exact.  Let me tell you a little bit bout it. Background I didn’t get serious about training until about two months before the actual race.  And by serious I mean only half serious.  I didn’t do a […]

  • Fort Worth Zoo Run Run 2008

    April 24, 2008

    Last weekend a couple of friends and I ran this 10k race. The weather was great, but the course not so much. It was really hilly and took a huge toll on you specially when going down hill. Overall, my time improved by around 30 seconds, which isn’t much. Will aim to bring my time […]

  • Butterfly Boogie Customary Action Shot

    April 3, 2008

    This is the customary action shot. I love the fact that they have photographers along the course just taking pictures of you. I only notice them when I’m right next to them so I’ve never really had a good action shot. Like this picture, I always look like I’m about to fall over, but I […]

  • Butterfly Boogie 10k

    March 31, 2008

    This past Saturday we decided to run the Butterfly Boogie 10k benefiting World Craniofacial Foundation. The course ran through Katy Trail, which was my first time visiting that part of Dallas. The weather was great and overall it was a great event. My time was pretty decent and I felt great after the race. A […]

  • Shoes Shoes Shoes

    March 25, 2008

    As some of you know I like to run. I have a 10k race this weekend and I’ve been preparing and hope to kick some butt. Now, one thing that comes with running is shoes. I never really thought that shoes played that big of a part in running. Yes, running in high heels might […]

  • Some of us can follow directions.

    February 26, 2008

    So, a couple of friends and I decided to run the Cowtown Marathon 10k. Which was a lot of fun. So, we got there a bit late since, I forgot to set my alarm to ring on weekends. There were some issues with the registration and I had to stay behind while the race started. […]
