Courtney Dauwalter: Can You Find the Reserve of Strength You Never Knew You Had? -R4R 063
Today’s interview is with Courtney Dauwalter, an Ultrarunner, who was the first finisher in the 2017 Moab 240….yes the first, not the first woman, the first finisher.  She finished in a mind blowing 58 hours, 10 hours faster than the second place finisher.  She was a DNF on her first 100 mile race and has […]

The Rundown – A Quiet Place
I’m less than three weeks from my Half Ironman race and I find myself in a quiet place. I’m stuck between the rigorous 11 hour training weeks and race day, between thinking “I’m going to crush this!” and “there’s a chance I could actually die out there.” It’s taper time people, or what I like […]

My Kids’ Thoughts on Having a Mother Runner

Last week when one such exchange took place, the guy on the other end of the phone turned out to be a two-time Ironman, so we talked about my upcoming half. “You will suffer, that’s for sure,” […]

It was an ordinary early morning at the gym. I was doing a side lunge with a DB clean in front of the big mirrors at the gym.  As I watched my form, my eyes fixated on my legs and arms. Visible muscles popped out with every move. Damn.  I looked jacked! Was it the […]

When coming back from an injury seems like forever away…but suddenly seems too soon
Coping with injury is never easy for runners. We really love what we do. When you have a running injury, once you figure out a rough plan of how long you will need off, the anxiety from being unable to run quickly begins to build. Which is exactly why I previously gave you the 12 […]
