Before feasting, Nolan and I ran the 2019 Life Time Turkey Day 5K at the Deerfield, OH Life Time Fitness. The weather was great for running, the route was good, and Nolan got a 5K PR!
It took me about 2 weeks to listen to The Lost Girls of Paris by Pam Jenoff audiobook. “Inspired by true events”, it’s a very riveting story of the British female radio operators working in Occupied Europe during World War II.
Call me crazy, but two weeks after the Marshall University Marathon, I ran the 2019 Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon! It’s such a fun race!! I got the usual pre-race jitters, but as soon as I got started those went away and I loved running the #stripatnight!
The 2019 Marshall University Marathon was my 4th marathon and and my 2nd fastest time, but I still made mistakes. Thankfully my very supportive crew from Tri-State was there to get me to the finish line.
Just like that, the leaves changed and started falling, the temperatures dropped, the beloved PSL came back! Wrapping up October 2019 with a short recap of the month.

The past weekend was the 2019 Queen Bee Half Marathon in Cincinnati. I had been really bummed about not getting into Chicago, but was grateful to be able to run this fun race again. The week leading up to the race I was traveling for work. I missed a few of my runs and didn’t…
The 2019 Michigan Ragnar started in Muskegon and finished in Traverse City on beautiful Lake Michigan. I knew it was going to include some running and lots of laughter, but nothing could have prepared me for the actual experience with this group of goof balls.
