Wow. Part II.

Finally finding a minute (literally, there hasn’t been a moment in the past week or so) to sit down and start writing about our evening run from a couple of weeks ago, Red Moon Trail Run. We made it home in one piece from the ultra event.  Knowing that we needed to eat something, even […]

Wow. Part I.

It was a good idea…until it wasn’t. Ever had that feeling?  At least I can laugh about it, right? Last Saturday morning was a 50k race on a course that was new to both Dan and myself.  It had been my idea to sign up during the spring, so I had it on the calendar.  […]

New Moon.

New Moon half, quarter, and Crescent Moon 5k – this signals the beginning of summer to me. Every year, for the past 4 or 5 years (I have lost track), Dan and I have done this race.  Except for one year that I can remember, the weather has always been crazy hot and humid.  It’s […]
