Lakefront Marathon 2011

How did it go … well, the bus ride with the other DM’rs was a lot of fun Jeff. picked me up at VERY early o’clock, we were first to the bus stop. Go figure. I’d expect nothing but that from Jeff. Soon we were met up with John C., John P., Laurie S. and […]

The run is almost over

This is a photo that I took on the last mile of my very last long training run for the 2010 Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon. Passing the water tower meant that I was finally to the top of the hill and that I was ALMOST done. There’s only seven weeks left to train this year. This week […]

Pigtails & VFFs

I just got back from the Firecracker Four where I ran 4.02 miles in 44:52. I almost went back to bed. I literally had my “I’m going back to bed, good luck!” text all typed out to Nesa and was about to press send when I realized I was being a baby, and needed to […]

Zapped by the sun

  I did my first Strider build-up run today for the Lakefront Marathon, it was only six miles and it started at 8 a.m. down by the lakefront. It was already in the 80’s by that time this morning and I knew it was going to be a hot run, but I didn’t realize it […]

Five days to go

Five days to go until the marathon. Time really went by quickly, didn’t it? In that time I’ve built up to a 20.1 mile run, bought a Garmin GPS watch, dropped a pant size, cut all of my hair off, turned 41, realized that running outside is pretty sweet after all, and discovered that I […]

Early morning run

Today was the last Saturday run prior to the marathon, only 8 miles. This is the 4 mile turnaround point. Gorgeous!
