Running my first 5k – with Foxy of course

I let Mark convince me into signing up for a 5k at Pinchot Park last week. I’ve never run a race before in my life – never actually been in any kind of race – biking or otherwise – in my adult life. I was a little nervous. I was going to run the 5k and Mark was going to run the 10k.

I knew if I was going to do it, I would have to bring Foxy, so I was relieved to find out that dogs were allowed.

Raise your hand if your job is really getting in the way of your summer. Long bike rides, early morning runs, open water swims, kayaking trips, not to mention barbeques, campfires, and mesh shorts. (Zippers and buttons are for suckers) … Continue reading

Volunteers needed for the Y-TriDu5K

If you’ve ever participated in a race you know, races are made possible only by volunteers. They dole out smiles and encouragement while directing runners and riders along the course. When I’m racing I make a point to thank whoever … Continue reading

I can’t believe I am admitting this

My boyfriend, Mark, and my good friends Jane and Craig are cyclists and runners. They are always trying to convince me to run, and I am always reminding them that I don’t run. What’s that joke? If you see me running, start running too, because it means a zombie is chasing me. So when Mark and I went hiking on the “goat trail” at Lake Redman yesterday, with Foxy the wonder dog, no one was more surprised than me when I started to run.
