Race Recap: 2017 Twin Cities 10 Mile

This was my 7th 10 mile and 2nd TC 10 Mile. And was a great reminder why I love the distance and this race, specifically! Even though this training cycle included a stress reaction and a hamstring strain, it showed me just how effective cross training can be. My alarm off at 4:15. Breakfast was… Continue reading Race Recap: 2017 Twin Cities 10 Mile

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

Sorry in advance that this is so long: Friday I rushed around all morning finishing up some last minute work, dropping off the little guy at daycare and… Continue reading Recap: Fall Great Lakes Bird Camp (AKA the greatest weekend ever)

Race Recap: Red, White and Boom! Half Marathon RELAY

Race morning was early. Calvin woke up at 3 and finally went back down around 3:30. I tossed and turned until 4:30 when my alarm went off. I ate the breakfast cookie I made the night before and drank a cup of coffee and glass of water. I wasn’t feeling my stride shorts for some… Continue reading Race Recap: Red, White and Boom!

Title Nine Bravangelists to the rescue + a giveaway!

Disclosure: I received a free bra — all opinions are my own. It probably goes without saying that a post about sports bras might venture into TMI territory. But I’ll say it anyways: This might venture into TMI territory. I’ve always felt very lucky that I’ve never had to worry about having a large chest that got… Continue reading Title Nine Bravangelists to the rescue + a giveaway!
