I ran all day

MissyFoy -

Friday, December 26, 2008 I ran pretty much all day today.  I told a friend that I must be stupid or crazy – or both.  I know my neighbors were wondering what was going on.  I ran a 10K loop at home which is 5K out and 5K back.  I ran it six times.  So, […]

Another long run

MissyFoy -

Saturday, December 20, 2008 I had to do my long run today because I didn’t want to run for hours in a cold rain tomorrow while germs are living in our house (Bob has a cold).  I’m pretty much germ-phobic so he’s not allowed to breathe on me, touch my coffee cup, use my pen, […]

Just getting it done…

MissyFoy -

Wednesday, December 17, 2008 I got an interesting question yesterday:  “how do you just get it done all the time?”  The person asking the question explained that sometimes it gets hard to stay on top of managing diabetes, that the motivation always falters at some point in sticking with a training plan, that simply getting it […]

Sunday’s Long Run

MissyFoy -

Sunday, December 14, 2008 This was a tough one today!  I was tired.  My legs felt dead.  It was cold.  I was really slow.  But, I got through 30 miles.  The plan was for 31 miles, or 50K, but an unexpected dropping blood sugar, and limited carb gel with me, prompted an early turn-around on the last 10K loop.  […]

Running in the Rain

MissyFoy -

Friday, December 12, 2008 We had torrential rain here yesterday.  It wasn’t so bad in the morning and I slogged through 4 miles, but I opted for the treadmill yesterday afternoon.  The treadmill is not my favorite venue for running, but at least I get to listen to XM radio when I’m on the treadmill.  […]

Being a Female Athlete

MissyFoy -

Monday, December 8, 2008 It is a sad, sad day in the world of running.  When I checked my email this morning, I got the news.  Kerryn McCann died in the early morning hours.  She was 41.  She died of metastatic breast cancer.  She is survived by her husband and three children, who are 10, […]

Running a Marathon with Diabetes

MissyFoy -

Sunday, December 7, 2008 I ran a marathon on the trails at home this morning.  I had to do a long run, so I decided I would do my half marathon loop twice, just for the heck of it, running easy.  I had to skip my long run last week because my lower back was […]

Am I Employed or Unemployed?

MissyFoy -

Funny thing, when you’re a runner by profession, you don’t really know what counts as employed or unemployed.  Since I’ve had this hamstring tear healing since the end of August, I haven’t been able to race.  If you run for a living then, well, racing is your job; so at what point does being “out sick” […]
