Race Recap: Disneyland Paris Half Marathon 2017

Every mile is magic, especially when you run them inside of a Disney park! This run took me all the way to Disneyland Paris. The week leading up to the race I've began noticing some changes - a lot of mood swings, overall anxiety, particularly high irritability about everything. I don't think it had anything …

Monday Morning Stand Up: Seafair Weeks 6-7-8 + Portland Weeks 1-2-3 2014 Training

For lack of a better way to combine the concurrent training threads, I'm now officially lumping them both together in the headline. The last few weeks have been insanely bizarre.

An Extended Season Retrospective: Remember Why You Started

So if you've been following my training lately, you'll probably notice that I've logged significantly less time swimming, biking, running. After about 11 months of intense training (as well as the ebbs and flows that come with it), and all the stressors that come with life in general, I think my body finally gave in. …

Week 8 HITS 140.6 Palm Springs Training: Action Always Beats Intention

What a week, folks. I've been thoroughly stressed out about things non-training related (for once!) and I'm so glad to have a community of people who I can rely on when things get really tough for me. Thank you. You know who you are. It was actually a bit light on the training side during …
