On February 20th I ran 2 miles, with the intention of running everyday. Long story short: I ate some raw eggs, yada yada yada, bumped up to 3 miles per day, blah blah blah, gave up wise-crackery for lent, blah … Continue reading

I ran 5.5 miles on a new route in La Porte yesterday. It was not a bad route, I’ll probably run it again. It goes through a nice neighborhood right along the bay, and could easily cover 7 miles on … Continue reading

I predicted that I would lose the prediction run real badly.

And I really really wanted to win it. I thought I had a shot, because there were only 40 people or so, and 4 of them get awards, and I run a lot, so I think I should be able … Continue reading

5 milers all around

I ran the bridge yesterday morning with one of my usual training partners, Tonia, and another woman, Mindy, who is considerably faster than both of us. Typically Mindy drops us on the uphill of the bridge and then waits for … Continue reading
