Race Recap: Jackson Hole Half Marathon 2016

My race in Jackson was my 30th. The Tetons were a beautiful backdrop to a particularly meaningful day. We drove in to Jackson from Denver the day before. I think this was the farthest I've ever traveled -- by car --for a race. It was really scenic and allowed us to explore a bit. (We …

Dopey Challenge Week 5: The Mystery of My Broken Footsie

My foot is broken! Well, not the whole thing, just one of the many bones that comprise a foot: The 2nd bone that is labeled there is pretty much split into 2 pieces, hamburger style. The two halves have conveniently aligned themselves into a tendon and have healed themselves into such a position. Well, "healed" is …

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. Not only is my sleeping schedule all over the map, but so is my schoolwork and work-work (because when you say it twice, it's legit). …

Still squeezing workouts into random time pockets in my calendar but at least I feel like things are somewhat back to normal.

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 …

Week 6+7 HITS 140.6 Palm Springs Training: Warrior, Not Worrier

Week 6 and 7 are in the books. Only 10 weeks left to go before the big day! I've spent the last few weeks pretty stressed and exhausted. I never knew what it was like to be so tired that I couldn't sleep. My legs and body would be sore but my mind would wander …
