Running will always be a love/hate relationship

I have a perpetual problem of overscheduling myself and not following my own color coded google calendar. This being said I ran Ragnar Chicago for the 6th time this past weekend in the seventh circle of hell weather and then had a 5k on Thursday. Both of these runs were with people that I adore … Continue reading Running will always be a love/hate relationship

Tyranena Half Barrel

I love this event. It is so much fun. I first ran it in 2011 when I barely knew any of my awesome Wisconsin running friends. It was the first race Sara and I ran together.

It needs to ebb and flow and not be something that takes over my life. I let running become … Continue reading Brewers Mini Marathon

I was afraid to recap last year. I was terrified to count up the miles. I didn't want to see the number. I didn't want to know how my couch bonding time affected the numbers. I know the numbers are arbitrary, but I also know that I was only injured for about a month of … Continue reading Running Ups and Downs
