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…

It is January in Colorado, right?!

Okay....I'll say it....where the heck is winter?!  I look forward to the Winter Series because it's usually a frigid sludgefest with biting winds, inches if not feet of snow and muck that makes your feet ten times their normal size.  What happened to old man winter?  Is he sunning himself on a beach in Hawaii...basking in the glow of misguided missile warnings?  It just seemed weird to not see one bit of winter on the course Saturday.  It was chilly at the start.  Overcast and 29 degrees. …

Changing Plans

Sometimes when you think life is done throwing you curveballs for a while, the biggest one is yet to come.
 

Please forgive my subsequent melodramatic musings. They're certainly not intended to be written with an air of self-pity and I hope they don't come across that way, but I'm a verbal processor and to write things out…

This is me!

Beep, beep, beep...darn it!  It's 3:30 a.m. on November 18, 2017....time to get up.  I'd been awake for about half an hour already.  Just trying to squeeze in those last few precious minutes of sleep.  Rolling out of bed, I head downstairs in the condo for coffee and oatmeal.  I spend a few minutes getting the last few items I'd been charging.  Pack for today's race is waiting for me to leave.  Back upstairs, I grab the outfit I'd laid out the night before and head to the bathroom for last…

Behind The Rocks, I found the Kevin Costner to my wolf

I am not an elite athlete, but trail running provides an untapped well of estactic warmth in this woman. 

This last year I threw out previous notions and stopped 'training' or timing myself (bye suunto I still love you).

Starting trail races at an eight minute mile snuffed my fire three miles into the run. Each start meant the thrill and adrenaline rush transforming me to a child. 

In order to reign this enthusiasm I had the pleasure of pacing with friends. Carrie and…
