Post Half-Marathon Thoughts.

by Alumni Posts October 22, 2012

If you’re a loyal follower of my blog, surely you remember my overjoyed post about my first half marathon, which I ran in April. My time was a disappointment, but the experience definitely wasn’t. And I think of all the obnoxious pictures of me as I’m crossing the finish line are proof that, although I […]

You Set the Tempo, Set the Pace.

You Know You’re a Runner When… 1.)  You can devour a whole stack of pancakes (and the side of bacon you requested, too) from Crepes Etc. without feeling like a total fatty because, hey, you just ran 13.1 miles and need to “restore your glycogen reserves.” 2.)  Hills don’t intimidate you whatsoever. 3.)  Your runs […]

Reckless and Relentless

by Alumni Posts April 16, 2012

If someone had told me last Friday night that I would be running in the Go! St. Louis Marathon on Sunday, I would have had a hearty chortle and dismissed the idea as preposterous. Why, I’ve just finished a track meet! I’m not even registered to run on Sunday! Sure, it sounds like a good […]

I knew you would be. Quite frankly, I don’t understand how to identify chemical compounds utilizing IR, NMR, or any other acronym, for that mater. Give me a […]

Running Down a Dream

by Alumni Posts November 28, 2011

Well, I had my last cross country meet of the season last weekend, and I must admit I miss it already. Waking up and running solo just isn’t the same as waking up and running with my team (although I must admit, not waking up quite as EARLY to run is a huge plus). But, […]

Happy Trails!

by Alumni Posts October 7, 2011

If you’ve been reading my past few posts, you probably know that I’m (deeply) involved with the Environmental Club. But here’s something I also love – perhaps even more – that I haven’t talked much about lately: RUNNING! I am a proud member of the Fontbonne Track and Cross Country teams, and to me they […]
