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 […]

NOTHING NEW ON RACE DAY. I’ve repeated this little nugget of wisdom to myself and countless other runners. Race day is not the day that you want to have a variable that could cause you unknown stress or make matters worse. You want everything that you can control to be controlled. There are VERY few companies […]
