Best Gifts for Runners: 2017 Holiday Gift Guide
Presents for runners should be pretty easy. We love trying new things, we are usually obsessed with our sport, and can’t really give enough gift ideas for runners, especially Christmas gifts, as it is the one time of year we really feel we deserve a treat, especially if it is cold outside. Last year I […]

The Rundown – Running Toward Las Vegas

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 […]

The Rundown – Feeling Like A Master
It’s not a good thing. When I say I’m “feeling like a master” I mean I feel old and every bit like I’m in the over 40 masters age group. Training always ebbs and flows but I’m feeling my age more than usual as I head into the final weeks before the Las Vegas Rock […]

Treadmill Review: LifeSpan TR4000i
It has been a while since I have reviewed anything, but I wanted to share my thoughts with you on a new addition to my life. No, not my 3rd child, though he is adorably cute and doing just fine! No, I wanted to share my thoughts (not a technical review) with you on a […]

Keeping up with the latest health trends is next to impossible.

Fall Running Safety Tips

Fall Running Safety Tips
Fall is my favorite season, especially for running. The warm days, cool nights, and relatively dry weather make it an ideal time for racing distances from the 5K up and through ultramarathons. It is also an ideal time to revisit some key running safety tips, as the days grow shorter and the frequency of your […]

Thankful for Running
Now that I’m back running, I’m so thankful that I’m able to do something that I love.  I was thinking about how good I was feeling during my 30 minute run yesterday that I felt myself tearing up.  And yes, you did read that right.  I ran 30 minutes straight with no walk breaks.  When […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

What a Runner Eats #RunItWednesday
The title of this post should really be what THIS runner eats since, when it comes to eating and running, no two runners are alike in eating habits. Because of that, I will share what I eat as well as what five other highly successful and experienced runners eat, for this month’s edition of Run […]
