Kelly and I headed to Utah for the Big Cottonwood Half and Full Marathon. Visions of PRs danced in our heads. But guess what? Race day it was hot. H-O-T. Well, it was very cold at the top of the mountain, but by the time we got to the valley many thousands of feet below, […]
It’s Dallas Love Field’s 100th anniversary. As a centennial celebration, we ran a special 5k with lots of our Dallas Galloway friends. I mean really, who wouldn’t want to participate in a race called Run the Runway – where you actually run on a runway?!?
Our first-ever 5k training program was more fun than we could have ever imagined. Our members trained hard during the slightly chilly spring (we gave winter a miss in Texas this year). Then they ran the Esperanza 5k in Plano and made us all proud. So did the Dallas Galloway half and full runners who […]
We’re trying something new with Dallas Galloway this spring: A Getting Started 5k Training program. We thought it might be fun to see if there was any interest in a 5k training program for new or new-back-to-running runners. Plus we wondered if we could start to build a base of runners closer to home for […]
Members of our Dallas Galloway Trekkers pace group wanted to run Little Rock and asked if we would join them. Since this feels a little like teenagers wanting to hang out with mom and dad, we OF COURSE said yes! Seriously, though, this is a fun group to hang out with and makes for our […]
We recently ran the Hot Chocolate 15k for the 2nd year. I wasn’t really in the mood to run and I don’t particularly like chocolate, but neither of those factors has ever stopped me from showing up. Plus I had friends waiting – even though I no-show them fairly regularly on Monday runs. But that’s […]
There are several things that make the annual Donut Dash 5k a wonderful experience. Let’s get the obvious two out of the way first: But seriously this is a mostly for-fun 5k, filled with strollers, dogs, runners, walkers and (if you look around carefully) members of your running club. And the other fun aspect? Kelly’s […]
Last weekend was the annual running of the Houston Marathon. It’s easy to be all smiles before a race. Even the morning of the race… But at some point you have to run a race. And smiles usually fade, though from looking through old race-day course photos I’ve learned my grimace face looks a lot like my […]
For six years we ran the New Year’s Day 5-miler as a way to kick off the year with a bit of competitive-driven exercise. Sadly, the race shut down after the 2015 race. What to do? In 2016, the answer was nothing. This year I was determined to find a replacement race. And, given that we […]
It may have been just one week after he ran another marathon and he may have been in the middle of battling a terribly head-and-chest-cold, but Kelly successfully once again ran the Tyler Rose Marathon.
