I am going into my last week in Texas, and my time here has been glorious. I have seen friends, business partners, and I have had a great deal of time with family. I have worked on setting up my business, and I have gone to a few professional development events. I have checked outContinue reading “Travel & Running”

A Win or A Bust?
The Travel: Last Monday at 7:00am, Japan time, 5:00pm Sunday evening Texas time, my husband drove me to the airport so that I could fly home to see family and do some work. I flew 2 1/2 hours from Okinawa to Tokyo, had a 4 hour lay-over in Tokyo (thanks to the delayed flight toContinue reading “A Win or A Bust?”
I couldn’t do it.
For those of you who actually read the blog, please pardon the redundancy. For those of you who are new, here is the three sentence run-down. I tried to run the island of Okinawa last April, and my friend and I ran seventy miles from south to north. Last weekend I tried to run itContinue reading “I couldn’t do it.”
Running & Fundraising
Why Do They Go Together? I was supposed to write this yesterday. Actually, I was supposed to write it last week and publish it yesterday, but I could not think of what I actually wanted to share this week. After giving it some thought, I figured that I could share what has been taking upContinue reading “Running & Fundraising”
Finishing What We Started
We started our traverse on April 17th at 5:00am, and after 22 hours and 11 minutes, and covering 70 miles, we called it quits. We felt good about our accomplishment. We had been up for almost 24 hours, and it felt acceptable to get in cars and to go home. On May 11th, we decidedContinue reading “Finishing What We Started”
The Intent not the Goal
Intent: “The State of Mind with which an Act is Done.” Goal: “An Aim or a Result.” The GOAL was to make our way up from south of Cape Kyan to Cape Hedo. This would be the southern point of the island of Okinawa to the most northern point (as the crow flies 66 miles,Continue reading “The Intent not the Goal”
When Did I Make Running SO Complicated?
I started running consistently over 20 years ago. I had a 3 mile route that was a simple out-and-back. There was a paved trail across the street from my house, and I could get to the Officer’s Club in a mile and a half, turn around, run back, and be home within 30 minutes. OverContinue reading “When Did I Make Running SO Complicated?”
The Peak Week
When you do something you have never done, consider documenting it. I remember many years ago I completed a 60-mile run week. I built up to it over time, and I was running 6 days a week. I remember feeling like I had accomplished something; yet, other than living in Virginia Beach, I don’t rememberContinue reading “The Peak Week”
Women Running at Any Age
A blog about a blog… I’m a newbie blogger so I’m not sure if this is acceptable blogging protocol or not, but this week, I’m going to write about another blog. I was recently approached by someone on the Marine Corps Marathon staff asking if they could do a short write up about my running.Continue reading “Women Running at Any Age”
Going for an Ultra
As I write this, I know that I probably won’t share the link with anyone but my mom. As I write this, I secretly hope that no one reads it. As I write this, I know that because I am writing it, and I will hit publish, I am taking the first step in makingContinue reading “Going for an Ultra”
