Half Marathon Training Week 1 & Upcoming Races

A few weeks ago, I went into a fugue state and registered for a shit-load of races. I’m pretty sure I will regret this by the third or fourth race, but the price was right on most, and a deal is a deal, amirite? My upcoming races are: Night Nation Run – Orlando: July 28…

Runner Struggles: Runner’s Trots

Guys, I’ve been struggling. I’ve been going back and forth as to whether or not I wanted to share my story, and make myself vulnerable. But I’ve decided to let down my walls, put on a brave face, soldier forth, and put it out there for all to judge. Because, quite frankly, it’s pretty fricking…

Race Recap: Best Damn Race Orlando 10K 2018

So before I get into this race recap, let me start off by saying that I’m super tempted by the idea of geocaching, because I like the idea of finding buried treasure. And not-so-buried treasure. However, my hangup is that if I do it, and spend my valuable time in the outdoors looking for something,…

[race recaps: best damn race and gasparilla 5k]

So before I start, I just want to announce that I got this sweet-ass cheese making kit, I’m excited, and there’s not a goddamn thing anyone can do about it: While I have generally been trying to curb my dairy consumption, there are just some things you don’t say no to, like homemade cheese. And…

[viva la margarita 5k and ava’s surgery]

Before I start my race recap, I need to make known the fact that my little bug had hernia surgery today. They had just given her another shot of morphine before letting us go on our merry little way: Let me just say I had never seen a fresh invasive surgery incision/wound stitch/whatever you want…

[bye, bye, terrible holiday eating habits]

I’ll be honest: since Thanksgiving, I have been eating like shit, not exercising, and generally not giving two fucks about the whole thing. And it has been magnificent. However, this kind of existence can’t last. I know this. And with two 5Ks around the corner (one being THIS SUNDAY), I have to change my ways….

[miles for moffitt 5k]

I just want to start off this post by saying I’m not ready for Cory and Topanga to be parents. I also feel it’s a stretch they have a thirteen year-old. At what age did they have her? They can’t be much older than I. (source) Anyway, this post is about a 5K I ran…

[hooters 5k]

Last Saturday (Easter Saturday to be exact), I participated in my very first beach run. I ran the Hooters Bunny 5K,put on by 727CANRACE.com. This is the second race I’ve run with this company; the first was the St. Patrick’s 5K back in March. Once again, I was impressed with everything my $35 race entry…
