Running Ramblings

Our Husbands Got the Runs…

Funny story, we were having dinner with a group of our friends, chatting about running and how much we hate it. Somehow, as the evening progressed, we managed to convince our husbands, our friends, and their husbands to run the Craft Classic with us.

Favorite (or just least hated) Race So Far

So, the other day, we were working out (mostly chatting) and started talking about what makes a great race. Is it just getting a good finish time? Great swag? The weather? The company?

Everett Half Marathon…or Full Rainathon

Last Sunday, April 8th, we ran the Everett Half Marathon. If you're a Pacific Northwest local, or have ever spent very much time here in the Greater Seattle area, you'll know "spring" actually means "rain".  Sunday did not let us down. It rained. A lot. Other than that, the course was well marked, the volunteers … Continue reading Everett Half Marathon…or Full Rainathon
