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!

We thought it would fun, if not for our readers for ourselves, if we wrote about what caused us to start running in the first place. There are tons of reasons we run now. Our journey in getting there however, those first miserable, slow steps, is mildly pathetic and somewhat amusing. Once again, Lydia will … Continue reading In the Beginning…

We've told you about some of our long term, as well as some of our dream goals, but this post focuses … Continue reading Monthly Update: It’s time to get March-ing!
When looking for a race to run in February, we stumbled our way across My Better Half Marathon and thought it looked like a winner. We know Orca Running always puts on an awesome race but this was exceptional. First of all, the bibs are the cutest ever. This was a "couples" run, which meant … Continue reading Will You Be My Galentine?
At the beginning of the year, we bust out our calendars and our phones (for googling purposes) and plan our races. As we were looking over 2018 we had an epiphany...we should "bless" our readers with details about these races! So, for better or worse, here's a little bit about three different kinds of races … Continue reading Run All the Races
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!
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
The Polar Bear Dive (Resolution 5k) was a blast...and this is our first review. Hooray! In December, we decided to do a Polar Bear Plunge and decided on this one solely because the shirt is adorable. A word of advice, choosing your race based on the cuteness of their swag is the way to go! … Continue reading Polar Bear? More Like Polar Brrr
