Running On Empty Documentary Premiere

I finally finished my documentary about running our first 1/2 marathon.  Please sit back and enjoy.  I hope it serves as inspiration to anyone who is thinking about doing something they believe is impossible. 

5 Calorie Burning Moments From Thanksgiving

The wonderful holiday season is upon us, which means a likely ascent in our weight.  I have read stories upon stories about what we need to do when enjoying holiday meals with family in order to ensure our weight stays right where we want it.  We’re supposed to eat less with portion control and doContinue reading “5 Calorie Burning Moments From Thanksgiving”

Want To Run A ½ Marathon? Then Do It!

Rachel and I have been asked many times to recount our ½ marathon experience.  When we finish a person will usually say, “That sounds like such a great experience.  I want to run a ½ marathon someday!”  I would love to respond by simply saying, “Then do it,” but I know everything is always easierContinue reading “Want To Run A ½ Marathon? Then Do It!”

Coming Down…Post 1/2 Marathon

It has been five days since we finished our first half marathon, but it still feels like it was yesterday.  I can still hear the crowds cheering and the bands playing.  I can close my eyes and see the finish line.  Every feeling that encompassed me in the moment I crossed the line is stillContinue reading “Coming Down…Post 1/2 Marathon”

San Antonio Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Bound

We finished our packing for our trip to San Antonio last night, which is always an experience in itself.  I am notorious for being an over-packer.  For me it’s about packing for any situation that can arise and, when you live in Texas, any possible change in weather.  Luckily, Rachel is a bit of anContinue reading “San Antonio Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Bound”

The Last Run

I have posted a video of the actual course we will be running.  We received the video by email and it actually gave me goose bumps.  I will admit that it seemed much longer than I imagined.  Okay it seemed ridiculously long, but still exciting.  I was born and raised in San Antonio, TX soContinue reading “The Last Run”

“Mommy, Why Does That Man Not Have A Shirt On?”

First and foremost, it is imperative to note that this entry is completely G-rated.  Although I am sure most people who perused the title assume that there is a possibility I may have run in the nude yesterday for my final long run, I assure you I did no such thing.  Now did I thinkContinue reading ““Mommy, Why Does That Man Not Have A Shirt On?””

Running With The Worry Monster

We are nine days away from our ½ marathon run and needless to say we are nervous.  Now is the time we are asking ourselves, “Did we train enough?”  It’s a valid question since it’s our first half marathon and safety is of our utmost concern.  With every day that passes the awareness of ourContinue reading “Running With The Worry Monster”

Come Rain or Shine…We’re Working Out

The weather has changed in the last few days.  Rain is falling across the area and temperatures have dropped drastically.  These are the days that curling up on a couch and reading a book sound most enticing.  It is when working out can easily become an afterthought and playing your “get out of workout free”Continue reading “Come Rain or Shine…We’re Working Out”

A Halloween Run To Remember

Training for a ½ marathon requires a lot of discipline and, unfortunately, a lot of time.  For me and Rachel it has meant a bit of a lifestyle change, but one we have been happy to endure.  We have become used to waking up early on Saturdays, running for almost two hours and becoming zombiesContinue reading “A Halloween Run To Remember”
