2019: My Year In Blogging

I’ve now been doing this blogging thing for a few years. Every time I think I’m starting to get the hang of it, something else comes along and I realize I still have so much to learn. But I do feel […]

Woodside Ramble 35k Trail Race: Race Recap

Woodside Ramble 35k

I haven’t run many races in the winter the past few years. I’m a coach and pacer for my running club’s marathon training program and we focus on March’s Oakland Marathon as the goal race. This means we have group […]

Salmon Falls 50k Training Recap: Week 8

This was an odd, all-or-nothing week of workouts for me. I spent the first part of the week traveling to the frozen tundra (Minnesota) where there was zero chance of me running outside in near zero temps. Then I ended […]

Salmon Falls 50k Training Recap: Week 3

I feel like I’m finally back into the rhythm of training. This was my first week of back to back long(ish) runs, and I continue to actually do strength/core work. Granted, more than once I did the core work right […]
