2013 recapped!

I recently saw a few “2013: My year in running” posts and thought it a stroke of genius since I seem to suck at race reports and it wraps it all up nicely in one post! The early part of 2013 consisted of training for the spring Flying Pig Marathon. Running through ice, snow, blizzards…you […]

Now that we are done talking about 13 seconds….onto the important stuff! ;)

As we told you here we had an awesome run at the Flying Pig Marathon but also a great girls weekend with a few amazing girlfriends. Our friends decided to join us for the weekend to cheer us on, so we decided to make it a girls weekend! We traveled down on Friday night (lets not talk about […]

Groovy girls know….

Different people react to this change differently, and have […]

Away from the snowstorms and cold weather and conveniently sandwiched between the intercoastal river and the Ocean…..decisions, decisions! Lots of time for paddling (sorry that I don’t have more photos but I am too afraid of […]

Flying pig here we come!

It’s official…..the training has begun…..we are going to the Flying Pig Marathon!   Ooooh – I just noticed the PINK medals! Anyhooo…… After a great run at the Bank of America Chicago Marathon last year working with Megan Lizotte of Hit the Ground Running (we’ll be featuring some flashback posts to share the funny stories from […]
