Lansing Marathon Training, Week #6 recap

Am I the only one who really doesn't give a crap about the Super Bowl?  Maybe it's cause I wasn't invited anywhere to watch it, so I'm bitter?  Nope, I think it's just cause I don't really care about it.  I will confess, I have it on, while I blog, do my taxes and a …

20 Miles of Awesomeness!

Lansing Marathon Training, Week #3 Recap

I got 9 hours and 45 minutes of sleep last night!  Woot!  I needed that.  I usually get 6 1/2 hours of sleep a night, but this week has been 4 - 5 a night and those are fitful hours.  I woke up feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the 1001 things on my to-do …
