Vegas 2012 1

I get mind blocks. My mom once went a year with out cleaning her car because she had a block about it. I get it. I get those type of mind blocks and no matter how hard it is to overcome them sometimes I can’t. I get mini blocks about writing race recaps. I don’t […]

So here I sit, a in a state of self induced force, writing my own words down so years from now #21 doesn’t mesh together […]

The other night I as a read Amby Burfoot’s book, The Runner’s Guide To The Meaning Of Life, I found the perfect words to talk about my post Marine Corps Marathon experience with Shalane Flanagan.   When I ran into her post race at MCM, near the Nissan For Endurance Booth, I felt GIDDY. She remembered who I […]

My heart gets carried away every time I take a break from running. 6 days full recovery. No running, no cross training. NOTHING. It felt good up until a point. I needed to run today. My mind needed it, my body needed it, my heart needed it. Living so close to my favorite place to […]
