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? We thought it would be fun to write about each of our favorite races thus far in our running "careers". Lydia's Story … Continue reading Favorite (or just least hated) Race So Far

The Ups and Downs (Literally) of the Whidbey Half Marathon

  So we ran another half marathon.  That's right, you read that correctly, we (Lydia and Annie) ran another half marathon two weeks after the Everett Half *gasp*. Skeptical? We don't blame you, but we'll explain: We have this amazing friend, Jessie, who had a miscarriage and lost her grandma all in the same week.  She … Continue reading The Ups and Downs (Literally) of the Whidbey Half Marathon

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

Irish I Didn’t Have to Run!

St. Patrick's Day, let the shenanigans ensue!! We ran the ShamRock & Roll 10k on Saturday which was both entertaining and exhausting at the same time. The volunteers were really nice, encouraging and plentiful. Also, Annie dressed up...which is obviously the best part. Granted, she refused to wear the leprechaun tutu Lydia brought for her, … Continue reading Irish I Didn’t Have to Run!

Bucket List? Nope…Run-it List!

We love to run races. We like (almost) everything about it: training, planning what ridiculous outfit we're going to wear, the anticipation/nausea at the start line, the finisher's medal, free T-shirt, the bananas, the "after" selfie, and the bragging rights. We like it all...aching recovery aside. A topic always under discussion for us is that … Continue reading Bucket List? Nope…Run-it List!

Lace Up Those Shoes, It’s Time to Go Streaking

I saw a thing on runnersworldmag about a run streak from Thanksgiving Day through New Year's Day. This seemed like a no brainer because we ran a Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving...so we had a head start, obviously. I sent Annie a text and we were off and running; literally. (Please note: For this entry Lydia's … Continue reading Lace Up Those Shoes, It’s Time to Go Streaking
