Joining A Trail Running Tribe

I started running over a year ago. Completed one 21k, another 23k while training all by myself. I really enjoy running solo, but big challenges request big changes. Last January I decided to run 42K in 2020, so I needed a trainer. After overthinking a lot (an I mean A LOT), I finally contacted a couple of trail running teams …

Virtual Race: Getting Some Skin In The Game

I ran my first 10km when I was 13 and have been running on and off since then. My usual pattern is building up a solid base, hitting my target distance, and then fizzling out and taking an extended break.

March! The month of transformation I’m told. Winter into spring; hibernation into regrowth. You know, that sort of thing.

Surely, I can say something awe-inspiring about transformation. I have reached the point that …

Run Free (For Me)

When it comes to running, I consider myself a “late bloomer”.  Throughout school, I considered academics my athletics and would do what I could to avoid physical activity. As I got older and graduated from college, I would start (and stop) exercise routines.  Walking, cycling, 30 day arms/abs/plank-you name it, I started it.  These routines would never last, and they …

Transformation Tuesday

May 26th 2013 I finished my first ever race! It was 10km. Nothing out of the ordinary. Something that anyone can do. But it was my first one. The one I trained so hard for. The one that gave me “la piqure” of running. The people in the streets cheering, the bands, music, everything made that first race “magical”.  And …
