About Me

After years of sloth, I am now a mama who runs and practices yoga. I write about exercise; parenting a grownup child as well as two little kids; and whatever is annoying me at the moment.

Fall race goals!

This fall, I'm trying something a little new. And I'm super pumped.

I signed up for a fall marathon, DPRT, on Oct. 17, and a 50K on Nov. 14, Palezoic 50K - Permian Fall.

I ran my first 50K at Paleozoic last fall, and excited to do it again. It's such a great race with great people.

Both are trail races, which are much kinder to knees and hips.

Best part -- some wonderful friends have signed up for at least one of the races, and one of my running besties is doing both races, too -- her first 50K!

I typically have done a big fall race, but only one. So we put together our best guess at a training plan to cover both races. OK, my triathlete friend did -- note the swimming I will mostly like ignore, haha.

I think every training plan should have "party" at the end!
