Two Weeks til EUG

I can’t believe my first marathon since October 2019 is only two weeks away. The AirBnBs, yurts and rental car are booked, I’m pretty sure my husband’s new passport is at the courier depot, and we are heading out in just over a week for an Oregon coast/Eugene marathon adventure!!! After such a solid halfContinue reading “Two Weeks til EUG”

5 Weeks til Eugene. That was a big one.

Getting so close to the Oregon trip and marathon weekend! We’re leaving in four weeks from tomorrow (well..as long as my husband’s effing passport is here in time…if not then only I will be leaving..) and taking five days to drive from Vancouver to the Oregon coast down to Florence and then inland to Eugene!Continue reading “5 Weeks til Eugene.

“Start where you are” and Half Marathon training!

Hi! Been a while! I went home up North last week and a good friend said, “it’s like you moved to Mars! How is it??” ahahahaha (Love you, Shelby!) She was describing it like that in a good way, and I totally agreed with her. I moved to another planet to put my head downContinue reading ““Start where you are” and Half Marathon training!”

PUMP up the JAMmie! – Weeks 14 & 15/16

Getting so close! One week til Jack & Jill’s Marathon! Husband and I were on Haida Gwaii for an overdue honeymoon for the last week and a bit. With respect to the taper for this race, it was good to be away and distracted. Lifelong Endurance┬áhas me maintaining some good intensity over the last twoContinue reading “PUMP up the JAMmie! – Weeks 14 & 15/16”
