  • Down deep but it is there

    Posted on February 23, 2011 by in Uncategorized

    One of the changes I am making and probably the key change is my training for this spring.  I am training for a marathon.  Funny thing, I am not running one.  I will still plan to run the 12 hour race in June and just see what happens.  More importantly for a good marathon this […]

  • A constant struggle–12 hour ultra race report

    Posted on February 22, 2011 by in Uncategorized

    I tried to think of the best way to sum up this race.  It had good moments and it had bad moments.  Strange enough but I can even say I had a good time.  (For the most part)  Although, I do remember at about 12:15 telling Richard that I quit having fun about 30 minutes […]

  • Sacrifice

    Posted on February 18, 2011 by in Uncategorized

    The definition of this word is really good. “Something given up or lost”  I also like “Giving up or losing something precious” In order to get something that we want we all have to sacrifice.  The question is what?  I often hear this question, “How do you find time to run?”  Sacrifice.  That is it. […]

  • It is time

    Posted on February 11, 2011 by in Uncategorized

    It finally began to settle in this week that I am doing this again.  Keep moving forward.  That is it for Saturday.  Find a way to keep moving forward.  One of the most popular questions I get about a race like this is, “What do you think about for 12 hours?”  Honestly, I try not […]

  • Race week

    Posted on February 8, 2011 by in Uncategorized

    I use that title and chuckle a little bit.  Technically it is race week.  At the pace I will be going it will not feel like a race at times!  I feel really good going into this week.  I feel like I have some positives heading into this weekend. 1- Company.  This is really big […]

  • It’s that time of year again!

    Posted on February 4, 2011 by in Uncategorized

    This weekend is the annual running of the Krispy Kreme Challenge!  It is only a 4 mile run!  Of course you run 2 miles and take a little break.  (A donut break, 12 of them!)  Then you run 2 more miles! Nice!  Watch out for debris at the finish line! [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EP9Q1hx6fQU]

  • This is hard to do!

    Posted on February 3, 2011 by in Uncategorized

    That is a phrase I would like to have in front of me on a sign for the entire 12 hour race next weekend.  I have no idea why but sometimes when I register for a race like this I seem to forget this.  It is not that I think it will be easy, but […]
