  • Well….The Atlanta Marathon is done

    Posted on October 31, 2011 by in Uncategorized

    Part of the charm of the marathon is the unpredictability.  Over the course of 26.2 miles you just never know what will happen.  I am working on a detailed race report which has some good stories I can assure you.  If you can appreciate a laugh or two, you will enjoy.  However, as usual, I don’t […]

  • 1123…That is the number

    Posted on October 28, 2011 by in Uncategorized

    Friday and Saturday are packet pick-up days for the Atlanta Marathon.  I found out my number earlier this week via e-mail and my number…1123.  Finding out my number always gets me excited for the race.  As of Friday morning I sit about 48 hours from the marathon.  I feel about ready to burst!  I have […]

  • Post Race Blues

    Posted on October 26, 2011 by in Uncategorized

    So what do you do next?  I had the post marathon blues real bad after my first marathon.  It is like taking a Disney Vacation (for those like me who love Disney).  If you have your next trip planned it seems to ease the let down of that vacation being over.  I think the same […]

  • No, just No

    How difficult is one word?  Very difficult if the word is…No.  From the moment we can speak is seems to be the easiest word to say.  My boys seemed to pick that word up rather easy.  However, as we get older it seems to be the hardest word we can find a way to say. Do we know […]

    Posted on October 24, 2011 by in Uncategorized

    6 days before the marathon and the only thing left to do, is race.  I have 4-5 runs this week just to keep myself loose.  Speaking of loose just a quick update from the race from this past weekend.  I believe I mentioned we will see which part of me will win out during the […]

The crows above the forest call; Tomorrow they may form and go. O hushed October morning mild, Begin the hours of this day slow. Make the day seem […]

  • Hoofin’ it!

    Posted on October 22, 2011 by in Uncategorized

    I decided to run the Hoofin’ it for Habitat 5K on Saturday.  I could use one last speed-work session and thought this would be a good place for it.  It has been a while since I ran a 5K and my some of my family will be there as well. I do have one big […]

  • Knowing the way

    Posted on October 21, 2011 by in Uncategorized

    One of the things I have always appreciated about preparing for a race, is knowing what to expect.  I remember before running my first marathon in Disney World, I had a chance to read a detailed race report of the course.  I cannot tell you how helpful it was.  I was out there running my […]
