A Shout-Out to High-Five Hoodoo

When I first started running, Duane would take me over to Palmer Park to run the Templeton Gap trail. You might be familiar with the trail. It's death in the form of some dirt and rocks. The terrain involves intense, short climbs that will leave you hating running, and your partner, at least it did for me. Duane is also very fast, and I'm pretty sure he could've hiked the 3.8 mile route faster than my beginner legs could run it. I had a lot of special stops along this run "The Hill I Hate",…See More

Kokopelli Kids!

I spend a lot of the year watching kids run, as a high school cross country and track coach. I love passing on my love of running to young adults, in hopes that they will become life-long runners or college athletes. When I knew the baby was coming in February, I decided to take the spring season of track off. Being a great teacher, coach and mom is very difficult...and being a mom comes first.Typically, my spring flies by and I jump into the summer feeling like a stranger in my home. Duane and…See More

Here I Run

The past two weeks of running have been pretty inexplicable. My abilities have changed, daily; and I'm grateful for the natural improvement. Truthfully, I haven't even been trying. It became noticeable a week ago, when I stood at the starting line of Take 5 in the Garden. I had decided to drag my butt off the couch and get moving, but my strategy was to walk every hill and generally take it easy with some 14 minute miles. I was certain that the race would take me over an hour to finish. But, as…See More

"They've had them in the past, and I think they were successful...I'd totally do one during the summer evenings."

Tonia Smith commented on Duane and Jaclyn Roberson's blog post Happy Thoughts
"I think with each baby it becomes harder. It will all come back. Don't be so hard on yourself. The baby is a blessing to be enjoyed. The rest will eventually fall into place."

Duane and Jaclyn Roberson commented on Tonia Smith's blog post The tutu controversy
"I read that story and was disappointed, too. Not that I read Self, because you're right in that they perpetuate an unattainable image and give advice that creates a cycle of 'self disappointment' (maybe a new title for the magazine?).…"

Happy Thoughts

I completed my first trail run since having our son, Rowan. I pushed as hard as I could for as long as I could (no pun intended) and covered 4.4 miles. I felt really strong. But when I returned to the car and checked my new Garmin, I saw that my average mile was 13:41. I had two thoughts:#1, Seriously? Fail.#2, Seriously? Get over it. It's only been 6 weeks.I'm running a lot slower than I did before having Rowan, and I guess I thought I would bounce back a lot quicker. But, if I investigate…See More

Duane and Jaclyn Roberson commented on Nicole Drummer's blog post Lactate Threshold Explained
"If you are using heart rate as a threshold marker, will it be different on the bike vs. a run? I notice that my heart rate is much lower for the same perceived exertion on a bike, compared to a run."

Duane and Jaclyn Roberson replied to Tim Bergsten's discussion Colorado Springs couple embarks on new Adventure Racing Journey in the group Adventure Racing
"I'm glad to see you guys are local. When I looked at the event, the fancy website, etc. made me think it wasn't a local organization running it. We are definitely considering running on March 30th, now."

Crunch time for Fear the Deer race in May

From Duane:

I'm twenty three days out today from the Fear the Deer half marathon, May 10. Quick history: in the inaugural running of the race three years ago I placed third. Then I was injured for a whole year--plantar, a whole other story--and then last year I went back and fell from first position to fifth in the last mile. Fast forward to this year. The race isn't getting any shorter, the competitors keep getting faster, and I keep getting older; nonetheless, I've really…
