Race Recap: Star Wars Half Marathon Dark Side

Wow, where do I start?  It was a most interesting race (in the you may live in interesting days way).  I cannot stress how important the weather is for a race.  This one should have been in the evening. My last great race was an evening race. True, in Florida, the weather is unpredictable on…

To Fundraise or Raise Funds, What’s the Difference?

TCS NYC Marathon bound!  After my short lived bout of insanity, I signed up for the NYC Marathon, after the lottery results said I was not accepted. I decided to run for a charity. Yes. I did it.                                  …

Beginning The Journey…Again!

Well, I have been thinking a long time about my blog. As, I sit at home convalescing with tonsillitis, I feel a need to plan my recovery. Lately, I have gone back to feeling like the Goodyear Blimp or maybe just a parade float, but I know this is only temporary. Weight is temporary. I…

Star Wars Light Side Half Marathon Race Recap

My flight to Los Angeles was totally packed. We were sardines all going to the same destination. Our Super Shuttle to Anaheim was difficult to confirm as usual. But this did not stop me from having a great time at the Star Wars Light Side Half Marathon. We had cool weather, in the upper 40’s…

Wine & Dine 2016 Race-Recap

The year, 2016 was my Worst Running Year ever! I had my rock bottom moment and my short rebirths, but I had all of the classic symptoms of someone who did not want to run. Demotivation. Moodiness. Depression. Did I say demotivation. A new injury. All of these things made my running painful and the…

It’s Coming – World Run Day!

Today I’m motivated again. I’ve got mail! A package arrived today. My brain was so fried from the heat and humidity that it never registered what it was until I opened the package and found this.  It’s coming. November 6, 2016 is (was National Run Day) World Run Day! Sometimes you need that jolt to realize…

A Tale of Three Runs

Run Disney has done a virtual running series this year where you run a 5k and register and receive a lovely Disney medal. Now that sounds silly for most, but I love virtual races because they motivate me to keep running even when I want to just chuck it and enjoy my summer. I’ve lost…

Global Running Day!

June 1st is Global Running Day! This Year it looks like National Running day is now Global Running day. This reflects how many people actually run nowadays. Before there were only a few diehard runners who challenged themselves and others.  During the last 3 years it has exploded into something almost ever other person does on…

So,Two at Once – the Disney / NYC choice

This year,  I am not sure if my running dreams will come true. Every year, my family and I get to make a choice of a few races. Some of them are Run Disney races so I can visit the happiest place on earth. Other races that we run are local, so we can choose to a marathon,…

Running in Bad Weather

So far, this spring has not been spring in the Northeast. It has been cold, damp and rainy for most days, with a few warm spring days to tease me. Most runners seem to love running in the rain. I’m not one of them. I guess I never saw the point of it. I have…

Looking Back, Going Forward

As I looked back on the very start of this venture, my blog. I had just suffered a few psychic and superficial blows by the had of people I used to work with and respect. I realized that there people neither respected or wanted to deal with me in the future, therefore I needed to…
