I originally posted this on my coaching blog http://neoendurancesports.com, but thought it would be a good one to put here on Pikes Peak Sports.
Last night I had the wonderful opportunity to speak to a group of women at the Colorado Springs Bicycle Village Ladies Night. As local female coaches, Alison Dunlap and I kicked off the presentations for the evening. Alison had an entertaining slide show…Continue

I will be honest. I am a "middle of the pack" runner. Granted, as I have gotten more consistent, I have improved. However, I don't know that I'll ever win a race and very rarely will I place for my age group (especially while living in Colorado Springs with so many fast runners).
Now, don't get me wrong. I love to win. I'm not super competitive when it comes to sports, but I do like…Continue

This year I decided to run the Winter Series. And in Colorado, you never know what kind of weather you're going to get. Reminds me of this quote from Forrest Gump...
"Life is like a box of chocolates...you never know what you're gonna get." ~Forrest Gump
Therefore, deciding what to wear on race day has been one of my toughest decisions. I don't want to be too hot and yet I don't want to be too cold either. Decisions, decisions!!…Continue
A few months ago I wrote about handling recovering from an injury that needed surgery to repair it. It's been just over 3 months since my surgery (More specifically 14 weeks tomorrow as I write this.)
While the time has gone by quickly, it's definitely not an easy process, but I am making good progress and not missing out on too many activities along the way (except for running.) I've been going to physical therapy (Orthopedic Rehabilitation Associates near Powers/Dublin) religiously…Continue

The Book of HURT is essentially a welcome guide for the hundred miler on Oahu. In it contains specific mention of wild pigs, leptospirosis infected streams, serpentine roots, shoe stealing mud, and exposed cliffs. The course consists of five 20 mile loops with 24,500 ft of total gain and 24,500 ft of total loss, all between 300 ft and 1,900 ft above sea level. This is the elevation profile:…Continue
