Hell Hill – Ray Miller Training Run #3

I’m running my first 50k December 2nd. The race is called Ray Miller because that is the first of the many trails we encounter. Today was my third run on the course. In looking at the course description, and in talking to past participants, I’d become familiar with the name, Hell Hill. But I hadn’t […]

Boston – Yes!

I already shared this on my Facebook page… I am officially running the Boston Marathon. I turn 55 in April of next year so my qualifying time was 4:10 so I had a 5:11 cushion. Yeah! That’s all for now. Except to say my first marathon was 5:51:02 on September 7, 2014…that’s some progress!

Quit when it’s hard? No Way!

Most of us have contemplated quitting something. Sometime our reasons are perfectly valid, but not always. I’ve been thinking about this topic, quitting, after my latest fall while hiking (read about it here: Overdoing It). I confess that while picking myself up, rinsing off the blood, and brushing all the dirt off my clothing I thought […]

A Thought on Forgiveness

Then Peter came and said to him, “Lord, if another member of the church sins against me, how often should I forgive? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “Not seven times, but, I tell you, seventy-seven times.” -Matthew 18:21-22 I think these words hit home for many of us because we, like […]

Overdoing It

Does this sound at all familiar? You’re on vacation. In the beautiful mountains. You don’t want to sit in your hotel room. You don’t really want to drive around all day. Because you’re now fit! You can easily do fun things, active things. So you decide a hike is in order. But this is a […]

Revel Big Cottonwood Canyon Half Marathon Recap

I signed up to this race last January, intending to use the marathon as my third try to qualify for Boston. I had just completed my first attempt at Carlsbad (January 2106) and while I had a 7 minute PR, I was still short of what I needed. This was my first race where I’d […]

Tears and Gratitude

A few years ago our church had a series during Lent with the theme of “who are our neighbors?” We invited various people from the community to come and speak. The goal was to help our members begin to understand neighbors that they may not know. One of these weeks we invited two young women […]

Ray Miller Training Run #2

  My husband (Scott) and I decided to do our long run today, 12 miles, on part of the Ray Miller Race (Dec 2) course. It’s probably more accurate to say that he’s a good sport and agreed to go with me. We left the house early to beat the heat, and started running at […]

Hmmm that surprised me – Gratitude 8/28

I confess that I’m a fan of Game of Thrones. I started watching the series when it was in season 3, which was nice because I was able to catch up to all the back episodes. Once caught up I read all the books. The show is engaging enough that I’m always surprised when the […]

Saturday – Gratitude 8/26

It’s Saturday, so its long run day. We ran along the Ventura River today, a 10 mile up and back down. The workout was 2 miles easy, 3 miles at half marathon pace, 1 mile easy, 3 miles at half marathon pace, and the last mile easy. I think this was the hardest effort I’ve […]
