100_0369

Hey hey! I thought it would be fun to share some thoughts and a recap from Matt (my fiancé) since he just completed the 11+ mile Tough Mudder race on Saturday! If you haven’t heard of it before, the Tough Mudder is basically the big daddy of all mud/obstacle races — they range from 10 to 12 miles and in addition to running they Continue Reading …

Primal Mud Run Race Recap

Yesterday, Matt and I ran the Primal Mud Run in nearby Selma, NC. 4.75 miles through the mud! Obviously the perfect way to spend one of our last days in NC. I love this picture — and yes, that’s barbed wire he’s crawling under Man, I love mud runs. They’re such a ridiculous blast (and an awesome workout, too — my arms/back/shoulders Continue Reading …

Tarheel 10 Miler Race Recap

As you all know, yesterday morning I ran the Tarheel 10 Miler! And man, I’m just going to propose it be changed to the “TarHILL 10 Miler” (I know, I’m hilarious), because good lord was it hard. I didn’t set a new PR, but that’s totally fine with me — I ended up deciding the morning of the race to run for fun instead of time. I Continue Reading …

As I mentioned, 3 of my grad school friends were also running the race — two of us doing the half and two the full. Both races started at 7 a.m., so we arrived bright and early Continue Reading …

Home for the Holidays Virtual 10k

This morning I ran a virtual 10k race! A few of my blogger friends set up the virtual 10k as a fun way to motivate others to stay active during the holidays. Great idea! I was clearly on board (and was happy that they reopened registration this morning for those of us that missed the original boat). Interested in joining in on the fun? Click Continue Reading …

Las Vegas Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon

Hello friends! As you all know, last night I ran the Las Vegas Rock ‘n’ Roll half marathon. It was a blast! Official finish time: 1:59:04. Woop! My current half marathon PR (personal record) is 1:51:47 from the DC National Half Marathon in March, so this was definitely not a PR, but that wasn’t the aim yesterday! What was the aim? To have Continue Reading …

10k Mud Run – The Best Way to Start a Day

This morning, Matt and I ran 6.2 miles through mud with my grad school friends Elle and Lauren. It was awesome. Remember when I did a 5k mud run in April? It was a blast, so when I found the ad for today’s 10k mud run, I knew it needed to happen. Matt, Elle, and Lauren had heard me talk about the last run and were instantly on board. Continue Reading …
