Thankful Friday

by MCM Mama on November 27, 2014

Happy day after Thanksgiving!  We had a nice day with family and now we will spend the rest of the weekend playing with friends. Win!  Today’s Friday Five topic is Gratitude, so I’m going to tell you 5 thinks I’m thankful for this year. (And huge thanks to Courtney, Mar, and Cynthia for this fun linkup and for becoming IRL friends.)  While I’m thankful for many things in my life – my family, my friends, my health, my home, my running, I thought I’d offer 5 very specific things I’m thankful for

TOTR: Top 10 gifts for runners

November 25, 2014

So, what do YOU want for Christmas?  Pretty much everything on my list this year is running related.

November 21, 2014

What a lovely day for a run… or not

November 18, 2014

Pouring rain? Thunder and lightning? Code red air quality? High heat? Freezing cold?  Winds that could blow you off the planet? Which one of these have you raced in? That’s right, today’s topic for Tuesdays on the Run, is “Worst Race Conditions.”  When Patty, April, and I started discussing this topic, I was like “oh, […]

I heart Skirt Sports!

November 13, 2014

Of course, you already knew that.  After all, I only race in their skirts and have for the last couple of years. And I own a few. Or maybe a lot. So, what’s different today from yesterday?
