10 Miles– coming soon to a race near you


10 miles coming May 24th. Finishing on the Soldiers Field 50 yard line.

Am I ready?


The weather–  has not cooperated and I have a difficult time running on the big girl hamster wheel.  Some days I can do it and some days I just can’t.

Injury–  I pulled something in my left hip area in the beginning of March that has made it difficult for me to run.  I knew if I didn’t rest enough, I would just make it worse.  So rest I did, and now I’m facing the set backs.

But now…  the weather is breaking, and my hip is healed.  I feel there is new life to the run. 

Now, I just need to wake up bright and early like I promised myself I would do and get out there and go.

My memories are something that I treasure.

Whether it's something that just happened or something that happened years ago, I want to have it to keep.

    I love “running on the big girl hamster wheel.” I will never look at a treadmill the same way again- so funny!
