It’s only the fourth month of the year, but I’ve already raced more in 2019 than I did in 2011, 2012, and 2013 combined. That’s because I’m in the middle of my #40years40races challenge, which is my quest to compete in 40 races in 2019, in honor of my recent 40th birthday.
I’m doing stair races and running races, and I’ve done so many races in the past few months that I’m starting to lose count. I need to Read the rest of this entry »

Time to let the cat out of the bag. I’ve embarked on a major exercise endeavor, and I can’t keep it a secret anymore!

Although I didn’t have a specific time goal for the Tram Road Challenge race in Palm Springs, I started the race thinking that it would be great to finish in under an hour. And I made it… in the nick of time!
The results, which I saw a little later, showed my name with a time of 59:59.1 – 9/10ths of a second faster than my goal. It was a fantastic way to end an awfully difficult morning. Read the rest of this entry »

On Monday morning, I woke up with the daunting realization that I would be competing in a running race that weekend. It’s a doozy of a race – a 6k, that’s uphill the entire way. Would I be able to do it? Read the rest of this entry »
