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 […]

The Rundown – So Many Questions!
It’s barely July and I have so many questions. Should I do another 70.3 at the end of the summer? Is it safe to run outside when there’s chance of a thunderstorm? Are my kids having fun at camp? Should I start one of the 100 writing projects in my head? Why does customer service […]
