I don't race you. I race me. Oh, wait. Let's be honest. If you come up out of nowhere and try to pass me at the finish line - the race is on.
I love running. It keeps me sane and provides all sorts of benefits, but it is the first thing to go when I have to take something off my list in order to get life done. Unless I have a plan.
I'll admit it, even though I'm running the Dumbo Double Dare as part of Team TSA (to raise funds and awareness for the Tourette Association to find a cure for Tourette's Syndrome - check it out!) in just over a month - I have avoided running this summer because I live in Atlanta and it is...

So this is how crazy ideas get started. Back in January I ran a 10k that was hard. For real. Seriously y'all, it was uphill and uphill some more. I didn't plan to run it at any fast clip, I was just out to have a good time, oh and not keel over. Less than... Continue Reading →

So, I'm feeling a little nostalgic. My friend, who was "Sherpa" on the venture I share below is about to do a century bike ride (that's 100 miles, if you didn't know) in Moab, Utah (aka: the middle of nowhere). I wish I could be there to return the Sherpa favor, but since I can't... Continue Reading →
After running in The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™ 10-Miler since its inauguration, I can tell you that things get spookier each year. And by spookier, I mean better! There are more characters on the course, there is more lighting on the course (though I'm not sure that some of the pyrotechnics count as lighting),... Continue Reading →
