Weekly Workouts: 8/28 – 9/3

I came off of two weekends of more running than my body was probably ready for (Ragnar and Bird Camp), so I took the past week easy. I’m feeling re-energized about my running, getting strong again and getting my symptoms under control and my Hashis into remission. Here’s the first of many shout outs to Coach… Continue reading Weekly Workouts: 8/28 – 9/3

Race Recap: 2017 Ragnar Great River

My alarm went off at 1:45 a.m. and I was out the door by 2:30 a.m. We met at Volee teammate Kaitlin’s place and was on the road to Winona by 3 freaking a.m. After a slight detour due to road construction and missing our 5:45 a.m. start time, we finally made it to the… Continue reading Race Recap: 2017 Ragnar Great River

2017 Great Lakes Bird Camp (WI) Recap

HELLO!! I took almost one year off from blogging (my last blog post was a recap from Bird Camp last year).

A few weeks ago, BiPro reached out about their new protein waters and I was able to check out their launch event last week at the new U.S. Bank Stadium. The building itself (to me), was kind of meh inside, but in… Continue reading BiPro Protein Water Launch VIP Event

Whistlestop Half Marathon Training: Less Than Seven Weeks to Go!

Tuesday: 3.52 miles (9:35 pace) + abs That afternoon, I headed the new and… Continue reading Whistlestop Half Marathon Training: Less Than Seven Weeks to Go!

My fall half marathon plans + Team MwM

I’ve already mentioned that I’m doing the Whistlestop Half Marathon in some social media posts and last week’s workout recap, but I still wanted to write a post about how I chose the race. I spent a good few days SUPER bummed about not getting into the TC 10 Mile and the quit feeling sorry… Continue reading My fall half marathon plans + Team MwM
