A Drop in the bucket

A Drop in the bucket

The year was 2007 and I was 29. I know you’re waiting for some epic statement to follow like “It was also the year that my life changed for good.”  Or “I’ll never forget what happened to me in that pivotal moment.” Sorry.  I don’t have that kind of story for you today.  2007 was simply the year that the movie The Bucket List was released. I still haven’t seen the movie. If it’s worth watching, let … Read entire article »

Catching up with SlimKatie

The basics: 30 year old blogger/stay at home mom from Southeast Michigan When/How did you start running? I started running in March of 2010. The only reason I started was to fulfill a bucket list goal of running a 5K race. I had never run a mile in my life, so it was a challenge. But as I started running farther distances, I became hooked on the sport. Why do you run? I mainly run to maintain my 120ish … Read entire article »

Calling all Running Stories!

Yowza!  What a crazy summer I’m having!  It’s been almost a year that I’ve been writing for Digital Running, and through it all I’ve gained a modest following of readers who’ve been with me through marathons, half marathons, PR’s, family victories and footwear woes. This summer there’s no slowing down… thanks to the fantastic training plans Coach Brian has developed for me, I’m looking at a potential breakthrough in my half marathon time (Can I really hit 1:45? Can I? Stay tuned!). I’m heading out for my first 50k (how many ultra-marathoners do you know? Well, hopefully you can soon add another one to that list!). I’m taking a page from my Coach’s book, and I’m training my son to run his first half marathon! And, believe it or not, there is … Read entire article »

A reason for running

A reason for running

Last night I went for a late night run with my son. It makes me smile to say that.  In all the years I’ve been running I never thought I’d be able to say that. To look at my son, you’d think there’s no reason why he wouldn’t be able to go running with me. Justin is a slender, fit, active 13 year old. He runs up and down the stairs and through the hallways of our … Read entire article »
