Today I ran the Marquette Senior High School annual Turkey Trot. I ran the 10K distance at a time of 1:07:54.


There was water at the 5K turnaround none at the 10K turnaround. No water at race ned and no fruit only cookies. Not good for those gluten free runners, eh? I had a water bottle and back in the car a banana.


I had knee issues on the good knee during and after the race.


Took the time to stretch before launching into cleaning and cooking for our guests who will arrive today at 4pm.


Happy Thanksgiving to you all!


I am grateful that my body lets me run! For family! And for the banana in my car 😉


Running with Celiac–First 5K Event of the Year!

April 22, 2011 Leave a comment

I’m a bit nervous, tomorrow is my first 5K event of 2011. My right side has been tight, some IT band issues playing not-so-kindly with my knee and hip. But I went for a massage on Thursday and I’ve been resting, cross training, and doing lots of yoga.

In May of 2009, I ran the YMCA Strong Kids 5K (road) in 39:58

Last year, as I recovered from injury and learned to cope with Celiac Disease, I only ran two races. My fastest race last year, was the Shore Run and I came in under 35 minutes.

I love to run. I want this to work. I’ll report back tomorrow.

Race Results: 33:30.06

I got a brand new shiny…red bike helmet! So I am no longer riding around Marquette risking my cranial health! Last weekend at the Marquette Farmer’s Market was an event put on by The Upper Peninsula Partnerships for Safety. There was also a Bike Rodeo and other family activities! I stumbled across this all on accident. I was just at the Market to shop for Veggies and YEAH! I got a Red Bike Helmet. I promise photos of me wearing it and biking soon! “Cause I want to discuss some road safety and bike path etiquette, soon.
