Originally posted June 2011. I love to reread the posts from my early days of running with Team in Training. It reminds me how far I’ve come. Our team had arrived at our longest training run – the 18 miler. This can be great fun when you have an awesome pace group, like I do…. [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.
While I think it’s fantastic that they’re adding so many new events to the Rock ‘n’ Roll marathon series, it’s kind of a bummer that they’ve also added a new heavy medal above and beyond Rock Legend. It’s called Rock Idol and you need to complete 10 events to claim the prize. They don’t even… [Read More]
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]
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]
