Not running!

So, it’s been quite a while since I have gone running. Once the majority of the kitchen renovation was done, and contractors were not here so often, I tried to get back into a running routine. However, my ankle started bothering me when I would run. It’s the inside of my right ankle. I was … More Not running!

In a rut!

Ok, it’s time to admit I’m in a rut. I can’t seem to get back to a regular workout routine. I was sure that once the daily kitchen renovation work was done, I’d be able to get back on track. And I did, for a week or two. But, now, I seem to have lost … More In a rut!


I’m kind of back into a regular running schedule again. However, some of my runs end up being a run/walk. The inside of my right ankle has been bothering me. I’m not sure what is wrong, I don’t remember injuring it in any way. It doesn’t bother me all the time, but I’m afraid to … More Run/walk

On the run again!

The weather here in Michigan finally feels like spring! We’ve even had a couple of days that felt like summer! As a result, I’m getting back into a more regular running routine. It’s been kind of hit or miss during the winter months and early spring. However, on days when I couldn’t be outside running, … More On the run again!

Back on track

I’m getting back on track with my running. The weather has been a little better, no snow or ice to worry about. And the temps are just a tad warmer. I hope it lasts. But, this is Michigan. Last week, I got three runs in! I haven’t done that since before Christmas. It felt good. … More Back on track

Too cold!

Mother Nature is wreaking havoc on my running schedule! It’s freezing cold here with a windchill that is below zero. And our street is a sheet of ice that is now covered with snow. I know lots of people run in any kind of weather. I am not one of those people. I don’t feel … More Too cold!

Still going!

I’m still running, in case you were wondering. I try to get three runs in every week. I’ve been pretty consistent. The weather has been pretty good. The cold, when we’ve had it, doesn’t stop me. What does stop me is pouring down rain and gusty winds. I don’t feel the need to run in … More Still going!

We did it!!

We did it! Today was the day! Adam and I ran our first 5k this morning! It was cold, there was frost on the car windows. I knew once I started running, the cold would not be a problem, but I was freezing while we waited to run. The half marathon started first, and 30 … More We did it!!

It’s happening!

It’s gonna happen. Two weeks from today we will be running our first 5k! I say we because Adam has decided to run with me. I’m so excited about that! I was thinking that I would be on my own doing this. But, before I registered he decided to run too. I am excited and … More It’s happening!


I had my first fall today while running. Not sure what I tripped on, a stone, a stick, I don’t really know. I just know I hit the pavement quite hard!! I’ve got some nasty scrapes. Scraped up my knee pretty good, and put a hole in a brand new pair of running pants. Also … More Oops!
