First off, exciting news- I finally got professionally fitted for running shoes after being a runner for 2 years. I did go see a podiatrist when I was having Achilles problems and she recommended New Balance shoes for me, but beyond that I’d never had any professional critique.

But my experience at Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend really blew me away. Unforgettable. But first, if you’re not familiar with my [...]

Saturday- Samurai Jingle Bell Run (Samurai Hash House Harriers) Yesterday (Saturday) Dan and I chose to run at the Samurai hash because A- it was a Christmas run, B- [...]

I’m ridiculously pleased to say that training for Goofy’s Race & a Half Challenge is going really well. Or at a minimum, FAR better than last year (when I didn’t train). I haven’t missed a distance run yet and my mileage is climbing. When it was time to run 16 miles I couldn’t fathom it. [...]

Alternate working title- Nobody Puts Peacock in the Van!! This is an event put on by the Samurai Hash House Harriers. (More on hashing here). A hashathon is a hash where you run 3 legs in one day totaling 26.2 miles/ 42 kilometers, or a marathon, give or take some distance. It’s a day long [...]
