New (Bike) Day

Apparently "New Bike Day" is a thing in the cycling world, and I got to celebrate it last week.

I never thought I could feel drawn to any other pursuit in the same way that I've always felt drawn to running. Even in high school, at 14 years old and a total noob who didn't own so much as a stop watch, sports bra, or even a real pair of running shoes, I felt compelled to go out for the cross country team the first day of ninth grade. To this day I couldn't tell you why I felt so…

Conquering the Resistance

I have a marathon in approximately 30 days and I’ve run less than 20 miles in the last month. While that sounds crazy and I could give you many excuses why my training is so drastically weak, the truth is that I’ve rarely been prepared for any long race I’ve attempted over the years. Is it because I’m lazy or unmotivated? Perhaps, at times. But I believe it’s more likely due to a routine, unconscious desire to create this deficit for myself so that I am forced to continually face fear and…

Restless Inclination

Are you going to let that skinny girl pass you?" I heard one guy rib another just in front of him as I trudged past them one afternoon on Manitou's infamous "Incline," a one mile stretch of horizontal planks that climbs roughly 2,000 feet in said mile. I smiled at his somewhat douchey but otherwise harmless comment and continued to the top, crossing the last step and taking a glance down at my watch out of curiosity, "26:47," as I started the descent down Barr Trail to do another…

2018 Canada Army Run

Since 2010 the Canada Army Run (est 2008) has been my destination/training highlight race each year. In December I was notified that of the hundreds who applied to be a race ambassador, I was one of 25 selected (and the only Yank) for the 2018 race. Yesterday the official release went out and this will be my third year to do the Commander's Challenge (5k @ 0800 then the half-marathon @ 0930). While I won’t rock my BRC Race Team singlet this year I will still be running in my…

Self Acceptance?

I've been plagued with an issue for a while now.  I wanted to share it with you because I think some runners may feel this way too.  I hope this touches someone out there.

At what point, do you feel like you're a runner?

I know for some that may seem like a simple question.  I put on shoes and I go.  Whether it be 100 yards or 100 miles.  I'm a runner!  It may seem like that on the surface, but, for me at least, it goes way deeper.  

From a previous blog post, you know…
