Racking up the double stroller miles

Screen Shot 2013-06-18 at 1.25.38 PM

I just posted last week about my introduction to double stroller running and how it hasn’t been easy. Since I know it’s not easy, you’d think I would plan better than to do a silly thing like go for a 10 mile run with that beast. Not so much. My husband and I planned to [...]

A mud race, a tricycle and a tantrum


On Saturday, hubby and 2 of his cousins ran the Warrior Dash in southern Maryland.  This was my third weekend in a row of being a race spectator; I didn’t mind sitting this race out since it meant not getting muddy. It took us about an hour and a half to get to the race [...]

Stepping out of my comfort zone

On Saturday, I was scheduled to run 20 miles.  I knew if I tried to run 20 miles by myself, I would have a tough run.  I would lose my focus and my motivation.  I’ve been doing the majority of my long runs alone for the past year.  Sometimes, I don’t mind.  I enjoy the [...]
