Why I Don’t Want To Run Long Distances

I have no desire to run long distances further than 6 or 8 miles.  There I said it.  I might sound like a sourpuss and may not be considered a “true” runner but that’s just how I feel about it.  I love running.  Don’t get me wrong.  I don’t dread it like some folks.  I used to enjoy it more on the treadmill but once I took it ...

FFFC October Fall Harvest Challenges 2013

What can I say about September?  The kiddies headed back to school and we focused our time getting our miles in the FFFC Fall Fifty Challenge.  We had other challenges going on but they did not take off as much as working to walk/jog/run 50 miles in the month of September.  It's all good though because in October we are just taking it to the ...

Outrun Cancer

My first and last 5K race was the Susan G. Komen race in 2005 I did while employed at Erickson Living.  It was a nice Fall day and I was so invigorated and exhilirated!  I mean I had a real sense of accomplishment PLUS I raised money for a worthy cause.  Fast forward to 2012 (boy how time flies) and I am contemplating signing up and raising ...

Athleta Training Guide

I have noticed that several of my friends have started running.  I went to a friend's birthday party in December 2011 and she looked GREAT!  I mean she was always attractive but in her fitted dress it was noticeable...she had been working hard for the body.  When I asked her what she was doing she let me know she started running.  She started ...
