Leg Compression for Athletes Recovery

 Athletes who undergo rigorous training often cause damage to their muscles and joints in which impacts further training and success.  This damage can cause exercise-induced inflammation, repetitive stress and trauma to the muscles. Symptoms include soreness, swelling, and tenderness, in part secondary to local increased lactic acid resulting in decreased range of motion. Therefore, quick recovery is crucial for athletes to regain and strive for optimal performance…

the incline

From Incline user Jennifer Strait

it used to be a private, narrow gauge railroad; a funicular. there were small, open passenger cars that slowly articulated the mile-long slope. it wasn’t too long ago when that ended, and the trespassing began.

it might be…

Just Because It's a Bad Idea Doesn't Mean It Won't Be Fun!

Go ahead and admit it, we’ve all done some stupid things before.  Some of you may recall childhood memories of trying to “fly” off your roof with an open umbrella to more creative endeavors as a college student powered by the sweet allure of cheap beer…

"Get out and get doin'...That's all I gotta say." KN

I use the CASE method of marketing (Copy And Steal Everything).  Keeler North came up with my title.

The Pikes Peak Ascent was last Saturday.  It was like Christmas at my house.  With 5 Eversons running the Ascent and 1 running the Marathon, it was a packed house for a week and it was a blast.

My musings throughout my Mighty…

Pikes Peak and the F*** It Moment

What. A freakin’ weekend.

Pikes Peak Marathon and Ascent is arguably the biggest deal in the Colorado Springs running ‘hood, and it was a blast being totally immersed in it all weekend long working the expo. Then later seeing old and new friends kic…

the coin of shame

I wish I only had to write about the Ascent.  Had a great day there.  Going into the race I thought my fitness would allow for a 3:29 and I would have been really happy with that.  So I was ecstatic when I got a second wind above Barr Camp and shuffled my way to a 3:12.

The good vibes continued on Sunday, where another 3:29 up goal was met with a 3:17.  I felt great, and I was prepared for the bomb back down the hill.  The first mile of that downhill went…

A Lesson from the Peak

Running the Pikes Peak Ascent can never be taken for granted.  I consider myself to be in pretty good shape.  Although I haven’t spent really anytime on Barr Trail this year, I have been training for the various events I have on my calendar.  I have done Pikes Peak many times before, so knew what to expect going into the Ascent.  What I didn’t anticipate is having to travel for work the week leading up to the race and then coming down with a cold.  I definitely wasn’t feeling great on race…

Christmas on Pikes Peak this weekend

Thousands of runners from all over the country will attempt to tackle the Pikes Peak Ascent and Marathon this weekend. This is a mighty feat with 7,815 ft vertical in 13.32 miles for the Ascent and an added descent for those brave enough to take on the Ultimate Challenge! Each runner has trained for months, if not years, and has mentally prepared herself/himself to persevere to the finish line. With only a couple of days…

Running for Pepaw!

Am I really climbing Pikes Peak in 48 hours???

My emotions have been swinging wildly this week: "I've got this!"  "I could have trained so much betttttter!" "This will be fun!"  "What was I thinking???"  The usual things that go through your head when you're crazy enough to sign up to run up a mountain. 

The unhappy news that there may be some snow/bad weather this year on the last three miles has put a little bit of a damper on things because I'm an awful…
