Race Recap: River Bank Run 25k

by Mindy @ Just A One Girl Revolution on May 16, 2017

in Running and Training

After the half marathon in Nashville, I felt very undecided about how to approach the River Bank Run. I registered for the 25k several months ago, maybe as early as January. When I finished the half marathon two weeks prior, I really didn’t know if I’d be able to repeat that distance plus another 2.4 […]

Nashville Changed My Mindset

by Mindy @ Just A One Girl Revolution on May 10, 2017

in Running and Training

Two years ago, I was crushing it as a runner. I worked really hard and it started to pay off, as I felt strong and fast. I almost added a fast (for me) disclaimer, but thought against it because I did feel fast. There is no sense in the comparison trap. I felt fast, end […]

Race Recap: Rock ‘n’ Roll Nashville Half Marathon

by Mindy @ Just A One Girl Revolution on May 3, 2017

in Running and Training

A year ago, I registered for the 2017 Rock ‘n’ Roll Nashville Half Marathon. At the time, I was running less than ten miles a week at most. Apparently, I had high hopes for a comeback because I registered with an expected finish time of 2:15, a PR. Fast forward to now and those high hopes […]

From Marathoner to Couch to 5k

in Running and Training

It’s no secret that I’ve struggled with my running for over a year now. While it’s humbling to start back at square one, today I’m sharing the journey of how I went from marathoner to Couch to 5k. I started having hip pain while I trained for the Bayshore Marathon last year. Those aches and […]

MSU Gran Fondo 4: I Linked Up.

in Fitness,Running and Training

On Saturday, June 25, I participated in the MSU Gran Fondo, a cycling/fundraising event in downtown Grand Rapids. The money raised from this event goes to skin cancer awareness, prevention, and research. I feel fortunate that I don’t have a compelling story to share for why I’m raising money for skin cancer, but I know […]

Grand Rapids Sprint Triathlon Race Recap.

by Mindy @ Just A One Girl Revolution on June 13, 2016

in Running and Training

I’m moving the usual Monday weekly recap until tomorrow so that I can talk about yesterday’s sprint triathlon! I’ve only done one other triathlon prior to this, another sprint back in 2012. I didn’t have the most amazing experience at that one and I think it made me shy away from the sport a bit. But, […]

Race Recap: River Bank Run 5k.

by Mindy @ Just A One Girl Revolution on May 15, 2016

in Running and Training

My second 5k ever was at the Fifth Third River Bank Run in 2008 and I finished in what still holds as one of my best times for that distance to date. This race is one of the biggest events in Grand Rapids each year and the energy that surrounds it is one of the things […]

Spring Race Plans, Take Two.

by Mindy @ Just A One Girl Revolution on March 22, 2016

in Running and Training

“We plan, God laughs.” Cliché, I know. But the thing about a cliché is that they only get to be that because they have some modicum of truth in them. In January, I wrote about my racing plans for 2016, including the Gazelle Girl Half Marathon and the River Bank Run 25k. Then, life got hard. […]

Inspiration: Olympic Marathon Trials.

by Mindy @ Just A One Girl Revolution on February 14, 2016

in Running and Training

Over the course of 2015, my love of running faltered in the midst of serious burn out. While I have spring races that I’m eyeing, they are admittedly more of a pipe dream at this point. I’ve had the hardest time finding the desire to run. I’ve logged some miles, but in truth, I’ve been […]

My 2016 race plans (so far).

by Mindy @ Just A One Girl Revolution on January 13, 2016

in Running and Training

Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been putting together my plans for races and training in 2016. While the training plan itself is very much a work in progress, I’m officially registered for two races and have a couple more on the radar! The main consideration is that after a rough training season in […]
