Posted on August 27th, 2014 by Jess Run/Hike/Bike

I started training just over a month ago for the New York City Marathon. The first several weeks went amazing. I was feeling great and full of energy. My long runs were in the 10-12 mile range which meant that I kept enjoying some nice trail runs. I was also making sure that at least […]

At the beginning of July, our really good friends passed through town on their moving journey from San Francisco┬áto Baltimore.

Well, I really did go to Vegas, but not with Brent nor to kiss the same old life goodbye. During the middle of July, I got asked to go to Vegas for a work meeting. Now I was a littke unsure about going to Vegas without Brent because of how crazy it is there. I […]

Saturday was the Jim Bridger Trail Run. I took it upon myself a couple of months ago to encourage a bunch of my friends to run it with me. There ended up being 6 of us that ran this 10 mile trail race. Which was a lot more than the 3 of us who ran […]

Trail Runs 1

I have been hitting up the near by trails lately and loving it. Several people have been trying to get me to run more trails over the last several years, but I always felt like it was a bigger time commitment. It takes at least 15-30 minutes to drive to the nearest trail and can […]
