Asheville Marathon March 3, 2013

It is time to start the spring marathon season and what better way to start than the Inaugural Asheville Marathon at the Biltmore.  This should be a great event and Ellen’s first marathon.  We knew that she just could not resist the marathon fever much longer.  We wish her great success and many more marathons.



This Aint No Twinkie!

Moon Pie!Good luck to all the runners who are headed up to Bell Buckle Tennessee to run in the 17th Annual RC Cola-Moon Pie 10 miler! This blogger-runner is not sure if they are headed there to run or to eat Moon Pies! Rumor also has it that there will be a side competition on race day. Apparently half the group is eating at Bread of Heaven the day before. For those of you who do not know, BOH provides a hearty soul food, country cookin’, all you can eat buffet! So the competition will be between those who buffet and those who do not!

It should be a hot day so be careful everyone! My final request is that someone bring me back a souvenir…. and by a souvenir, i mean a Moon Pie!!


Whose afraid of the 3 hilly loops?

WhiteStone – February 28

Not wind, not rain, not snow, can keep us from running Whitestone (and if you have participated in this race the last few years you know exactly what we are talking about).

Hopefully all those hill workouts Tuesday morning will help us survive this course …..


Here Piggy, Piggy, Piggy

Here Piggy, Piggy, Piggy

Once again, we are returning to Cincinnati on May 6th, 2012  for the Flying Pig Marathon (did we mention it is one of our favorite marathons of all time?).  After all, what is not to like about a 3d Piggy finishers medal with a finishing banner that reads ‘Finish Swine’?


Santa and Fairies … 11 miler

Santas and Running FairiesOnly once a year do you get to run with Santa and the Running Fairies dressed in tutu’s.   Join us December 24 at 6am in Maryville for our annual holiday run (followed by coffee and treats at Vienna Coffeehouse).



Reindeer Run December 4, 2011

Some of us are running the Reindeer Run in Maryville on Dec 4th. Rumor has it that this run could be the run of the ages. There is some serious trash talking going on between nephews and grandsons. We’ll see who is eating the humble pie at the end.


Secret City Half Marathon, November 20, 2011

Secret City Half Marathon

Get your race shoes ready! Most of the running crew is planning to run the Secret City Half Marathon in Oak Ridge this Sunday, November 20.  Registration is still open so sign up today. Race time is 8am.


Columbus Marathon in October

A few of us are planning on doing the Columbus Marathon in October. If you are interested/thinking about joining us you may want to book a room at the Hyatt on North High Street (2/3 block from the start/finish). They have a marathon rate of $139 while the rooms are available and the hotel phone number is 614-463-3034. You can cancel 24 hours in advance without penalty. Columbus is a very flat course (there is one slight hill around mile 17/18) and the crowd support is good. Wayne and I have PR there twice which should give you a clue how easy the course is! We are planning on going up Saturday and returning on Monday (I think it is a little over 6 hour drive).
