I haven’t talked about this before on here, but my next project is not about running…well, I will totally make it about running LOL but that’s not really what it is. In late 2020 I had an abnormal Pap test, which is very common and half the people I know have had one of these.Continue reading “Next Project…Hysterectomy recovery from a marathoner & triathlete perspective.”

Eugene Marathon & my first Boston qualifying time!
Wow. The Eugene Marathon 2022 was such an incredible event to take part in! Even though I had a great day and most people LOVE an event where they PR, this event kicked so much ass regardless of my personal result, truly.

I also forgot about the extra-gross feet, as well as how quickly my energy gels disappear! Speaking of theContinue reading “8 weeks til Eugene. I’m hungry.”
10 weeks til Eugene.
In 2019 I made a vow not to run a full marathon in 2020. It was time for a break. I ran a final pair of marathons on back-to-back weekends in October 2019 (Victoria, Kelowna, went better than would be expected) and figured that would do me for a while and let me focus onContinue reading “10 weeks til Eugene.”
