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.

How To Become a Morning Runner
Beep beep beep beep. I roll over and peel my eyes open to see the time of the alarm clock. 4:40. Who in their right mind would set their alarm for this un-godly hour? Didn’t I just go to sleep a few minutes ago? Why am I doing this again? I could just turn the […]

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).
