Slow Motion

So by now I've learned that keeping up with the blogging is much harder this year than it was last time. Sorry, Tim! 

Anyway, less than a month to go before we all toe the line to take on The Mountain. (Hoping our trials against it are more successful than those against the Game of Thrones character by the same name.) Since I last checked in, I've raced twice: the Summer Roundup Trail Run, aka the second leg of the Triple Crown, and the Barr Trail Mountain Race, aka the scrappy little…

Pretty good week!

The past week has included some good training days. In the past 7 days, I have worked out for 5 of them. That is great news, even though it has not included any running. I have used the stationary bike and a couple versions of elliptical machines. In addition, I lifted 3 times!!



I am excited about my opportunity to run the Pikes Peak Marathon and I am going to do everything I can to ensure that I can finish and stay healthy.



An interesting part about cross training is the… Continue

Pikes Peak Elite Track Club: "Think Global, Race Local"

While qualifying…

Frustrated, but Thankful!

 actually wrote this post yesterday and almost submitted it, but chose to sit on it for a day and look at it again today. I don't usually do that, I usually think of something I want to share during a run and then just sit down, write, and then hit submit.

I do not know why I chose to sit on this one. Maybe it was the hope my thoughts about my race would change or maybe it was the sheer vulnerability I put in writing. Truth be told, it was both. My friend Dan Angeles suggested that…

I Ran Laps Right Round Baby, Right Round...

Any time I can use lyrics from '80's or '90's music in life I get happy! This particular song was in my head the ENTIRE time I ran yesterday.

How happy are you that the hill of awesomeness times three is over?!?  I have never run the Summer Roundup before so I'm not sure what the course was like in past…

Leg #2/Summer Round Up--Don't quit!

Summer Round up is in the books. I started the weekend in beautiful Vail for the Vail Hill Climb. It was a great morning with great temperatures. However, my body was trying to get the best of me. My motto was to take one step at a time until I crossed the finish line. I was successful in completing the Vail Hill Climb but it was exhausting. I tried my best to rest and hydrate for Summer Round up.

This morning I woke up early ad tried to prepare as much as I could for the run. Stomach…

I Get to Run In Colorado Springs, CO!!

Now I know I am biased because this is where I started my running career, but I am spoiled.  

I was just on vacation in western New York, Bemus Point to be exact, and the humidity just kills me.  I had to go out on runs at 6am and five minutes into the run I was soaking wet and miserable.   I needed the miles so…

Training Roundup

No time like the present (and a long holiday weekend) to really get serious about this little jog up and down a mountain, right? 

Carrie and I formed an ambitious plan to double up longer efforts this weekend with a Rampart Reservoir loop on Sunday and a high-altitude marmot scramble on Monday. She…

On Super Mario and Mt. Washington

I really thought that I would have oodles to say after Mt. Washington a few weekends ago. It was, after all, anxiously anticipated by me for weeks. And months. And to sort of a weirdly obsessive extent. Maybe because I'm weird and should get a life.

There…

Summer Roundup Trail Run - 11 days and counting!

I just registered for the 2nd leg of the Triple Crown Series! The Summer Roundup Trail Run will be on July 9th! 

I truly love the challenge of Bear Creek Trails. The views are spectacular and the entire race is on trails. There are some good hills that keep runners honest. If you run smart, you also get some good opportunities to gain ground on the long downhills!

The 3-loop course will weed out the runners that have been doing the work from those that have not. I may be in the…
