SOME HIGHLIGHTS OF MY 2016 RACING SEASON

  • I raced 64 races in 2016.  (plus several of the brewers cup races throughout the year, did most of the brewers cup races easy as several of these were Neilson Challenges and other races which were non-competitive).
  • I had started out the year with right hamstring pain and some Achilles problems until April- then I was able to get back to some real conditioning and training.   I worked through it and overcame the issues with needle treatment and my millions…

Demons

“So, what do you think is the most important mental quality someone needs to have—that can’t be coached—to be a successful athlete?”

My long-time friend Corey Kubatzky posed this question to me as we conversed on an especially slow Sunday afternoon at the running shop we worked at a couple of years ago. Corey was about to take over as the head women’s cross country coach at CU-Colorado Springs, where he had formerly been the Graduate Assistant during my senior season there several…

Goings On

“Are you back running yet?”

I was asked that the other day by a friend I haven’t seen for a year or so while we were catching up. For a second I had no idea what she meant—I’ve been running plenty—I think she may have been referring to my ongoing absence of my former race-every-weekend approach.
