Last Week’s Workouts
Welcome to last week’s workouts! To be completely honest, last week seems like it was eons ago after the long Thanksgiving weekend.  So let’s catch up!  Did you run a Turkey Trot?  Score any good fitness deals on Black Friday?  Btw, I’m totally on board with Black Friday sales being available online.  You won’t catch […]

Do Good. Live Well. Make an Impact.
I would like to tell you a story. It is a story of loss, a story of love, and most of all a story of how doing good, living well, and volunteering can have a lasting, positive impact on you and your community. In September of 2007, fresh off of my first half marathon, I […]

The Rundown – Las Vegas RNR Half Marathon Stripped Down
I have never run a race like the one I did in Las Vegas last week. With what seemed like the better part of the Las Vegas police force armed with assault rifles, lookouts with binoculars on top of buildings and parking structures and police helicopters screaming overhead, myself and 40,000 other runners assembled outside of […]

How to Pace Yourself in Running and Parenting

How to Pace Yourself in Running and Parenting
Running. Parenting. Two very different yet surprisingly similar realms of one’s life (should you happen to do one or the other, or like myself, both). Both take an incredible amount of time, energy, commitment, and above all, love. They can both be immensely rewarding, bringing some of the greatest joys and memories of your life. However, […]

The Rundown – Running Toward Las Vegas
Every time I survive the flight to Las Vegas (or anywhere else), I think it’s a miracle. So, any anxiety I may have about running the Las Vegas Rock and Roll half marathon on November 12, is not really new to me. In fact, I can tell you in all seriousness that I still fear […]

Favorite Marathon + Half Marathon Workouts #RunItWednesday
For the sake of SEO I guess I’m ok with using the word “favorite” to describe my pick for this week’s Run It Wednesday topic. However, saying this marathon workout is my favorite is kind of like saying having a c-section was my favorite way to have my kids. In both instances, the outcome was […]

High Five Friday
The first High Five Friday of the new year.  It feels so fresh and so right. 5 from Instagram 1 ) Snow pup.  On Christmas day, my parents and I went snowshoeing in the fresh snow.  Cooper was like a puppy again! 2 ) When the polar vortex is unrelenting and you just want to […]

The Rundown – Off to the Race(s)
Technically I’m only off to one race but just getting to Las Vegas this week will be a series of smaller races to pack, get some freelance jobs finished and spend as much time as possible with the boys before we leave. But, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Last week was a great week […]

Being a dad is one of, if not the, most important jobs of your life. You, along with your partner, are responsible for the life of another human being. It is up to you to make sure they are fed, changed, cleaned, soothed, and loved. You will be their moral compass…you will be their guiding […]

The Rundown – The Other Side
It’s fantastic to be on the other side of the holidays! Even though my kids were home for almost three weeks straight, my dog continues to cause ridiculous amounts of stress and a warm day is anything that is a positive number, I’m still grateful to be firmly in January of a new year. Adios […]

The Rundown – My Mind Is Playing Tricks on Me
I can actually see it both ways. I’m playing tricks on my mind as much as it’s messing with me. Lately I’ve hated seeing actual pace numbers in my training log so my coach starting putting in the RPE (rate of perceived exertion) scale instead. If I see the pace 6:11 I find it’s hard […]
