I think I'm going to call it a day and say that my training to pace my longtime BRF Leighanna at Burning River 100 is finished! I started training in early June after just coming off a typical for me training cycle (last minute race decisions, large increases in mileage, fast long runs, no rest … Continue reading #Pacertraining Week In Review
Actually I heart all running really. I like running on trails, I like running on roads, I even like running on the track sometimes. And I've even grown to love running itty bitty distances for time at my gym. We regulary run at 200, 400 and 800 meter intervals at the gym. While I wish … Continue reading I Heart Trail Running-Pacer Training Week in Review
That has to go down as one of my odder titles for a post. And also be foreworned that this post get's a bit vulnerable. The genesis is from something I noticed about myself a few weeks ago. As I was putting chalk on my hands before snatching, I became aware that each time I … Continue reading The Chalk Bucket of my Insecurities and other Random Anxieties
It's been a busy start to my summer and June has seemingly passed by in the blink of an eye (as it usually does!) In the two weeks since my last update, I've continued to run trails, lift weights and I even made time for a short trip to Charlotte, NC to see my sister … Continue reading Week(s) in Review

After a whirlwind day Saturday (8k race in the morning-swimming lessons-graduation party-driving over 100 miles-solo parenting-collapsing in bed exhausted at 8pm), I woke up Sunday morning with that feeling of just being ready to get the race over with. I had gotten a good night of sleep but knew that I had another long day … Continue reading Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon 1/2 Marathon Recap
Saturday morning began with a relatively late wake up call of 6am. I had pre packed everything the night before which was clutch because this race wasn't a solo endeavor. Nope, I'd be pushing 40 pounds of stroller and 30 pounds of human through the potholes of Cleveland for this one. Due to my husband … Continue reading Rite Aid Cleveland 8k Recap
May 17th marks the one year anniversary of my first day at EpiqX Fitness and Performance. My first day. I felt SO strong holding the barbell like that If you know me in real life, you know that although I love fitness, I don't like trying new things. I've done some stuff in the past … Continue reading Year 1 Reflections
Last week I reduced my running in preparation for the Rite Aid Cleveland 8k and Half Marathon. I only ran twice (out of 3 total planned runs) and cut my mileage pretty significantly. I've talked before about my struggle with resting/recovering but I think I took it to a new level these last few weeks. … Continue reading Week in review-taper time!!
Ok and just like that, peak weak has come and gone. And if there was ever a great peak, this was it. You know that feeling when your legs are primed and your mental game is strong? That was me. Yes its a short short short training cycle but the positive side is that I … Continue reading Cleveland Half Marathon-Peak Week In Review!
