Running - The Gift That Keeps Giving


Running has been pretty good to me.

It got me in shape (13.5 years ago). It toned up my (somewhat) soft body. It built my endurance. After a life of not considering myself an athlete, it proved otherwise.

And, it continues to keep giving to me....

The Off-Season Continues 


Ahhhh, the off-season.

Have I, by chance, mentioned it's my off-season at the moment? Actually, it's not just a single moment, and there are several moments remaining of this annual scale-back-on-the-running occurrence.

Anyways, not everyone takes an off-season. We all have our preferences with what works for our training. For myself, this includes a brief period of re-grouping during the winter. After all, I don't usually have much for upcoming races this time of year. I don't need "all the running" to maintain my fitness when there's other things that work just as well while giving "all the running" muscles a lighter schedule.

Plyo-Infused Stair Workout


We all love fast and furious workouts, right?

Well, this will get your heart pumping and test your leg strength. It may also have you questioning your sanity and sweat capacity.

I don't know about you, but there's a lot that's gonna keep me busy.

Running into the New Year



Hello 2019!

I can't believe I just typed that. Seriously, how is it possible we are already almost an entire week out of 2018? Alas, time marches on, and it's in our best interest to follow suit.

The first (almost) week of the new year went well. Momma N did her best to thwart my opt-outside Run Streak finale, but that's a given (she pulls this colder-than-frigid weather crap on me every year). I kept my runs outside, though, as well as most of my off-season endeavors this week.

January Coffee Chat


Happy New Year! Happy 2019!

There's plenty to chat about...shall we find a (virtual) table, and grab a (virtual) drink of choice?

2018 in Review


2018.
It definitely was quite a year.

After being sidelined for three months (in 2017), from the sport that I love so much, 2018 was all about rallying back. It was a year of gratitude. It was a year of taking nothing for granted. It was a year of new adventure. And, it was a year full of action-packed fun, both in and out of my running shoes.
