Work took me to Orlando for a week and, as luck would have it, there was a 5k the morning after I arrived less than a mile from my hotel! I was able to squeeze this in before work and am very glad I did. The weather was certainly humid and warm but not yet… [Read More]
Fitness for the body, mind and soul.
I want to be ready for any adventure with a sharp mind, capable body, and loving soul. These posts are my workouts, challenges, disciplines, and prayers on how to be fully fit.
A bit of a detour from marathons, but a few of my TNT teammates were trying to get a 12-runner relay team together for a 194 relay event on April 30th/May 1st. So, naturally Jason & I signed up! Best thing we ever did. I would much rather say we spent our 2 year anniversary… [Read More]
On March 17th I registered for the San Jose Half during a promotion that Competitor was running for St. Patty’s. On April 12th, I got the following e-mail: Congratulations, Tiffany! You have been randomly selected as a winner of Dodge Rock ‘n’ Roll San Jose Half Marathon’s “Double Your Luck” promotion! As a winner, you receive… [Read More]
Originally posted in January 2011 during my quest to run 7 Rock N Roll Series events in one year and earn the Rock Legend Heavy Medal. I’ve completed the first event for the year: P.F. Chang’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Arizona Marathon. I ran this event in 2009 and it was hot and the water on… [Read More]
Originally posted December 2010. Apparently this was my very first actual yoga class! Well, I didn’t get in a run today. However, I DID go to my first yoga class! I’m not so sure that it counts as a running substitute. More like a supplement. It reminded me a lot of our strength training routines… [Read More]
Originally posted December 2010. Early Running Journal blog posts remind me of those growing years when I didn’t identify as a runner yet because I had to take walk breaks. It helps to reread these and remember where I was at and see how far I’ve come. Christmas Day: Bullard, TX – 3.1 miles, 2:00 PM, 40… [Read More]
Originally posted December 2010. I keep these early blog posts to remind me where I was at in the first years of learning to run. Two things going against me: 1) My newest pair of running shoes is trying to shave down my ankle bone for some reason and I think that has caused me… [Read More]
Originally posted in October 2010. I keep these blog posts from my early running days to remind me how far I’m come, how much I’ve learned, and keep the “beginner” mentality fresh so I can be a better coach. One thing about marathon training is that it forces you to put more focus on the… [Read More]
Originally posted in September 2010 when I was a new runner doing intervals with Team in Training. These old posts are a great insight into my early running mentality. In the beginning, my pace group was put at 3:1 intervals (3 min. running and 1 min. walking). Our target was 12 min. 30 sec. miles…. [Read More]
Originally posted in September 2010, when I was still walk/jogging with Team in Training. I still am not a huge fan of running in the heat but I’ve since learned how to survive with less mental anguish. The Heat Factor I have a big issue with running in the heat. I’m not talking about… [Read More]
