NYC Marathon Course

…I am going to the New York Marathon! (Refer back to my previous post about entering the lottery here.) The drawing was held on Wednesday as I kept checking my email over and over again to see if I heard anything. Finally around 4 in the afternoon, I saw an email with this: I never […]

Run to the Pub 2014

Posted on March 18th, 2014 by Jess Run/Hike/Bike

The first race of the year has now come and gone, but it was a fun one! The Run to the Pub takes place every March on the weekend of Saint Patrick’s Day. There is a 10k and a half marathon. I tried to get everyone that I knew to run it, but only ended […]

French Cafe 4

You know that moment when you find some little restaurant or cafe that you just find yourself craving all the time? You don’t just crave the food or coffee, you crave the atmosphere and the love of the unique little place you stumbled upon. A few weekends ago we went with some friends to their […]

And it’s happening…

Happy March first everyone! For those of you in the warmer climate, I invite you to join is in Bozeman to finish out this lovely winter we are having! Ha! On second thought, I don’t think I can take that feels like temperature anymore. Can I come visit you? Enjoy your warm weather for me!

I had to say it.

I just had to say that I was back in the full swing of running again after the weather snap didn’t I? It is now about a day and a half after my last post and things have changed. Last night when I got off work, it was 9 degrees and slowly dropping. I made […]

Training Update

Posted on February 24th, 2014 by Jess Run/Hike/Bike

I realized that it has been a few weeks since I have updated everyone on my marathon training. The week of cold weather was a little bit of a set back. I did get into the gym. I made the most of my shorter runs on the treadmill trying just to pound out the miles […]

Challenge Accepted

It is week four of marathon training and another week of below zero temperatures. My rule is that I don’t run below 5 degrees. What do I do? Where do I go? A few weeks back Brent and I bought a bike trainer because it is hard to get outside in the snow and ice. […]

Happy New Year!

We rang in the New Year with some of our closest friends. It was fantastic! Then Brent and I had a fabulous New Year’s Day! (I know I am really late posting about this.) After a lovely New Year’s Day run, we took the dog, grabbed the snowshoes and headed up to the mountains. It […]

Seriously…love training with friends.

Posted on January 22nd, 2014 by Jess Run/Hike/Bike

I just can’t get over the benefits of training with friends right now. I blogged last week about my tempo run and how great it was for me. (Read about it here). I ran that tempo run by myself and I felt great. Last night one of my friends joined me for my tempo run. […]

What are friends for?

Posted on January 17th, 2014 by Jess Run/Hike/Bike

I love having friends that are willing to help me out with my training. I have always been really bad about taking the time to do core workouts and anything other than running. I knew I needed some help. I have done a few things off and on with the last marathons, but I was […]
