Hot Stuff

Hot Stuff

Name-dropping.  Bland finger food. Talking about the weather.  Social gatherings can be such a yawner.


Hit the Trails!

Hit the Trails!

Tired of running the same routes?  Need a new running challenge?  Want to add some variety to your training?  Spice up your running by trading in the ashpalt for some dirt.  Trail running can provide fresh, interesting, and challenging elements to your runs that may be just what you need to keep improving.

Running with the Pack

Running with the Pack

Training partners are one of the the most valuable assets you can have.  They keep you motivated, give you a sense of accountability, and keep you company on your training runs, speed workouts, and at races.

Using Visualization to Prepare for Race Day

Using Visualization to Prepare for Race Day

My first experience with serious race day preparation and visualization was in college.  During the cross-country season, we raced every other weekend; so on the Monday of a race week, our coach would lead us through a “chalk talk” in the locker room.  She would go over how the ideal race was supposed to look and which team members would have to finish ahead of members of our rival teams for us to win.
