10 mile Trail Run

10 mile Trail Run
This winter went by fast and we’ve had some excellent spring weather. We have some exciting (tough!) events coming up and I’m all over the map with my training.  I haven’t been able to settle on a good plan.   I’ve been active consistently but need to be more intentional with runs and bike rides. ...

February Trail Running

February Trail Running
That was a cold one!  6 mile trail run in a beautiful state park. Who said Nebraska is flat? The ground was frozen  which was a nice change from sloshing around in the mud but did present it’s own challenges in a few places.  But we had fun with it!       Any advice ...

January Trail Run

January Trail Run
You never know what you’re going to get running in January.  It’s been 50 degrees and muddy and sometimes it’s cold and snowy. This one started out pretty decent but definitely got colder and cloudier by the end. We did 6 miles.  The trail was pretty icy in patches and I got to use my ...

Valentine’s Day trail run

Valentine's Day trail run
I really want to tell you about this last weekend’s events, but first we have the Valentine’s Day Trail Run!   There was more snow on the trail than we thought since it had warmed up a little in the days prior to the run.  Back in the trees the trails were still snowy but ...

Now that’s just Ugly

Now that's just Ugly
This week we did a 4 mile run on Saturday in mixed conditions.   The snow was melting and freezing so it was pretty icy in patches and I am paranoid about falling and breaking something.    By the afternoon it had warmed up quite a bit and was a nice day especially for Nebraska in winter! ...

Catching up...and gearing up for 2015.
2015 is  going to be a great year!  Although I’ve missed posting a few events lately, I wanted to start off with 2015! January has started out a little slow, with me being sick more often that not.  I’m really ready to start feeling good again. Earlier in January we did a 6 mile trail ...

Frontier Triathlon 2

Frontier Triathlon
This is a recap of a different kind of triathlon. Run, shoot a rifle, run, shoot a bow and arrow, run.    It was a blast!    It was the day after the relay so we opted for the short course which was 1 mile for each run segment.  Long course was 3 miles for ...

Our first Relay!

Our first Relay!
Whoop whoop!  We participated in our first relay a couple of weeks ago.  It was an incredible experience and a lot different than we expected. It was the Nebraska Market to Market where we started in Omaha and finished in the Haymarket in Lincoln, NE. After a lot of stress and losing members and adding ...

10 hour Adventure Race

10 hour Adventure Race
We did it.  We participated in a 10 hour adventure race.   It was pretty good for 8.  The last 2 were brutal. It was very hot and humid that day.  Like over 100 degrees hot. We were on our way by 5:15 and made it to the starting lake at 6:00 for check in. ...
