Night Run – that wouldn’t end

Night Run - that wouldn't end
In July Sheri and I did the Heifer Hustle Night run. It was brutal. It was hot and oh so humid.   We signed up for 5 miles.  You had the option of going 10 and 15 as well.    Headlamps were recommended. We were scheduled to start at 8:15.  We went back and forth ...

State Games Adventure Race 1

State Games Adventure Race
Last Saturday we completed another Adventure Race.    As we got into the car to leave we said…how is it so much fun to run through poison ivy, get scratched up from weeds and tree branches, run, bike, swim for 3 hours? We had another great time.  It’s like being a kid on a scavenger ...

Run, Row, Rock and Roll part 2

Run, Row, Rock and Roll part 2
Race day! The alarm went off at 4:30.  Yuck.  I forget how noisy tent camping can be.  We listened to some coyotes during the night and one of us snored.  I’m not saying which one. We pulled on our clothes which consisted of new socks for both of us, and new pants for me.  Which ...

Mud Sweat and Beer 1

Mud Sweat and Beer
We did another beer run a week ago, the Mud, Sweat, and Beer trail run.  It would be a lot more fun if I liked beer!!    But I do like the trails, the people, and the atmosphere! This was in Ashland, NE at a golf course with beautiful views of the platte river.   ...

Beer Run recap

Beer Run recap
Last Saturday we did a beer run.  The Lucky Bucket Beer run. It was out at a state park and was on a pretty nice trail.  I thought it was going to be through the wooded dirt trails and wore my trail shoes, but it ended up being on pavement the whole way. It was ...

Lincoln Half Marathon recap

Lincoln Half Marathon recap
Sunday was the Lincoln Marathon and Half Marathon.  I ran the half. The only pictures I ended up having are the ones my mom took where they came and watched.  Oops. This was the first time I ran the Lincoln Half and it was pretty cool to see the town come out and support the ...

Trip to DC Area!

Trip to DC Area!
Nothing too exciting has been going on in terms of training or events.  It’s a busy time of year with kids activities and the Lincoln half is now a little over a week away.    We did take a trip to the DC area a couple of weeks ago.  We spent a couple of days in DC, ...

Just how cold was it? 1

Just how cold was it?
A couple of weeks ago we did another trail run.It was cold. Very cold.  -10 to -20 wind chill cold. But we had signed up for another trail run and there would be no cancelling the event.   So 2 of us still went.   I enjoy being part of the group that does these events and ...

Panama Winter Adventure Race 5

Panama Winter Adventure Race
Can you say that without singing “Panama”?    And this was not in the country of Panama.  Which would be super cool.  But it was a small town in Nebraska.  Our first real Adventure Race.  We did the Orienteering challenge in January, but this was first ‘real’ one with biking, running, and checkpoints. This is still ...

Winter Trail Runs 2

Winter Trail Runs
A couple of weeks ago, we ran the Raging Bull Trail Run. Again, signed up for 6, ran 3.  Boo, hiss. We discovered we run downhill like old ladies.  Really.  We picked our way downhill, sliding and slipping the whole way and not at all ‘running’.  The Raging Bull is a 3 mile loop in ...
