Last Saturday I ran the Run the Rock 50k in Smith Rock State Park, just outside Bend, Oregon. My hubby and I arrived in Bend on Thursday. We went to check into our VRBO, and realized quickly that I’d messed up the dates on my reservation, we were supposed to be checking in on Friday! Whoops. It turned out to not be a big deal.

First up, the not-the-marathon! Continue reading “Boston Marathon Week Part 1”
Hey, so now that I’m running again, I thought I’d do an update on how I’ve been training over the last couple months. I know for some runners, it’s running or nothing, but I would have lost my mind if I wouldn’t have had other activities to fall back on. Continue reading “Training Update, injury addition”
Gosh it’s taken a lot of time to get here. And I’m not home free yet. But I’m running again.
