My First Half Marathon: Why I ran and how I felt


Okay, I admit it: I’m quite proud of myself. I ran my first Half Marathon on Sunday, and had the pleasure of crossing the finish line at Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon, where many of the greatest runners in the world have raced. I was expecting to feel relieved. I was not expecting to feel […]

Pre-Marathon Jitters: Getting Ready for the Eugene Half


Tomorrow’s the big day – I’m running the Eugene Half, my first Marathon! I’m nervous, which seems silly. But, if I think about it, running 13.2 miles “just because” seemed silly a few months ago, but here I am, doing it anyway. Just because. Things I’m worried about: Oversleeping: I need to get up at […]

Run, Bike, and Swim? How to train for a Sprint Triathlon


When Sarah over at IronGirl called me to ask if I’d be interested in a sponsorship to their Portland, OR Sprint Triathlon in June, I laughed. My running coach, Robin, over at Every Mom to Iron Mom has been telling me it’s time for me to do a Sprint, but I keep whining about not […]

High 10: How my running partner ran 10 miles without me


I’m a long run dropout. Alas dear loyal readers and cheerleaders, I must confess, I did not make my 10 mile goal this weekend for my Half Marathon training schedule. But my running partner Rebekah did, so Yay her! I truly am pleased as punch for her, and proud too. I wish I could say […]

Running for Waffles at the Winery: Run Momma Run Brunch, Silvan Ridge

The Jeep Jog Stroller Review, and how I ran 8 miles, and lost 10 pounds eating Paleo!


This is the story of how I ran 8 miles last week, and how I’ve lost 10 pounds since I started the Paleo diet four weeks ago. I know it, I can barely believe it myself, but scales don’t lie. And neither does the mileage tracker on Baby Ruby’s new BOB Jeep Jog stroller, or […]

How to Run 7 miles on Chubby Mommy Knees!


My chubby, 45 year old knees and I did something amazing today: we ran 7 miles, in a row! This is the first time I’ve ever run that far. Ever. And thanks to Keith’s Chi Running Workshop methods, I didn’t feel much pain. I did make Rebekah, my running partner, stop every 2 miles or […]

Marathon Training: how to run intervals at the track


Coach Robin taught me how to run intervals at the track yesterday. The idea is to push yourself a bit, but learn to run at a consistent pace over and over. So we ran a lap, then rested, then ran again, and tried to keep the pace the same. This is tricky to do when […]
