Happiness

Hello there

On Tuesday, as I was huffing and puffing through the first 2 miles of my 6 mile stroller run, a thought kept running through my mind – I really wish I didn’t care so much about my pace.  My comfortable pace is a 10 minute mile, but I don’t want to run a 10 minute [...]

Lessons learned from marathon #3

Rock 'n' Roll USA Marathon

Every race is a learning experience for me – usually because I make a lot of ridiculous mistakes.  The best thing I can do is identify where I went wrong and make sure I don’t do the same thing next time.  For the Rock ‘n’ Roll USA Marathon, I took into account all of the [...]

And the winners are…
