On Moonshot Goals and Training Plans

Having followed Nike's Breaking2 story for awhile now, as well as Runners World editor David Willey's BQ efforts, has had me thinking about my own moonshot goals, especially since I'm not currently registered for an A-race. Dopey was my own moonshot goal for 2017, and maybe those only come around once every few years. My …

Race Recap/Week 25 Dopey Challenge: Whine Not A Marathon 2016

Week 26 was an absolute doozy! It was a finals week for my students, along with a Dopey simulation week. It also happened to be the week of my wedding anniversary. Timelines were squashed on top of one another, so I had to squeeze in my training in some funky ways. We were planning to …

Week 2+3 Seafair Sprint Tri Training: Stay Overzealous, Friends

Hi party people! Four weeks in to my new training regimen and I'm feeling good. Still squeezing workouts into random time pockets in my calendar but at least I feel like things are somewhat back to normal. Week 2 was particularly momentous because I got some wonderful news: my fracture was completely healed up, and …
