More miles going around in circles …

I’m kinda ready for this winter thing to pass. Seriously. Being regulated to treadmill and indoor track running is starting to make me slightly nutty. Well, okay, that wasn’t what made me nutty. And, that’s a whole post for another day. There’s simply no time to explain that all today. Anywho … I’m just ready for spring. I don’t run outside in the snow or in below freezing temperatures — there’s too much risk for…

Running miles and miles and miles while going nowhere fast …

Aw, treadmill running. I hate it. But, you know what? I also kind of love it. But, I hate it. Well, to be honest, I hate that I love it. Because I hate the treadmill. [I’ll let you wrap your mind around that last paragraph for a second]. I guess what I am trying to say is this — under any other circumstances, I wouldn’t choose to run on the treadmill. But, during the winter…

This should be my 2017 race schedule …

Okay, I think I’ve got my complete 2017 race schedule figured out. I think. Which is a definite maybe. But, let me explain it a little bit. I have a race each month except December. I might add a race in December, but I am not planning on it. It’s a good rest month after a long year of running. My busiest month is June. I have seven races planned for the month. Yes, seven….

Keeping it all in the family …

I’ve been slowly getting a hang of this Hashimoto’s “thing” as of late. Transitioning into the new diet has been a work in progress. My doctor gave me a list of foods I should avoid and eat after my diagnosis. A good chunk of that list was avoiding gluten and dairy products. And, I won’t lie — that’s been the hardest part. Actually, not so much gluten — because there are some pretty good gluten-free…

Figuring this Hashimoto’s thing out …

It’s been an interesting couple of weeks for me. Besides figuring out this whole Hashimoto’s Disease out — I’ve been dealing with a beastly bout of bronchitis. I feel lucky it hasn’t been the flu, but that hasn’t stopped the fatigue of restless nights from coughing up a lung and a half. I thought I was turning a corner after sleeping most all day on Sunday, but I ended up coughing all night Monday night…

Coming to terms with Hashimoto’s

Hello moto. Okay, that’s a pretty lame way to open a blog post, but I’ve had that stuck in my head for WEEKS. Not only because of the stupid commercials, because I’m constantly reminded every time I say, type, mention or research Hashimoto’s Disease. Anyways — if I haven’t told you now then you should know now — I have Hashimoto’s Disease. After a couple years — well, probably more like 2.5 – 3 years…

The Run Before Christmas …

Welp, Christmas is over. I hope you’ve all had a great Christmas. Mine was spent mainly with family — which is the best way to spend Christmas if you ask me. We didn’t do anything fancy — just the usual. My Dad does a reading of The Night Before Christmas on Christmas Eve for all us kids — and grandkids. So we did that on Saturday night. And, then on Christmas Day we had our…

#FitnessFriday: Farewell July my ‘ol friend

Such a strange week — it’s kinda odd thinking that I ran a half marathon on Monday. It kinda seems so long ago. But, then again — my quads have been reminding me what I did pretty much all week long. All. Week. Long. Luckily, I am feeling now feeling a bit refreshed — in time for tomorrow’s Timp Half. I really, really want to push for a sub-2:30 again. But, I won’t lie —…
