Thirty training logs. One missing; 1987-1988 journal was in my office!

The first person to correctly identify the race where I won the award in the background of this photo wins a prize! You can ask me any running-related question and I’ll answer in confidence. Post your answers on this blog or on Facebook.

Note: I’ll be updating this post daily with each date’s log entry. ln addition, I’ll try to add a story related to the log or about a race at the end of each weekly post.

About nancytinarirunswrites

I used to be known as a competitive runner, but now I have a new life as a professional writer and editor. I'm even more obsessive about reading, writing, and editing than I was about running. Running has had a huge influence on my life, though, and runner's high does fuel creativity. Maybe that's why this blog evolved into being 95% about running, but through blogging I'm also learning about writing and online communication. I'm fascinated by how the Internet has changed work, learning, and relationships. I love to connect in new and random ways!

    No, it’s not cheating, Teresa, but you are days too late! See what happens when you don’t check Facebook regularly? KO, private investigator, supplied the correct answer within an hour of my post.
