Roughly once a month one of my athletes asks for help programming a workout into a Garmin.  I am useless in these requests.  I always have to explain that I don't own a Garmin and therefore, have no clue how to help them.  I'm then met with incredulousness and the foll...

It's crazy that my last blog post was 3 months ago and SO MUCH has changed, yet SO MUCH has stayed the same.  

Quick recap:

My last blog was after a very, very, VERY disappointing Spring.  Low ferritin reared its ugly head in Feb/March, I was making a good come...

Shortly after I had completed my first marathon in 2:50:01, a runner friend of mine said, "just imagine what you could do if running was all you did."

I said no.  I said there is no way that running full time would ever work for me.  I said that I would probab...

TLDR; I DNF'd a race this weekend that in retrospect probably should have been a DNS.  This Spring season of racing and training has showed me I still have so much learn about this sport, even though I have been competing for nearly 20 years. 

If you know nothing a...

TLDR; I qualified for the Olympic Trials on Sunday, running 2:40:11 for 2nd place in the Philadelphia marathon.  If you want the longer version, grab a cup of coffee and settle in!

you have talked to me in the past 10 days, you know I can’t stop talking about Deena Kastor’s book.  

The truth is that it came to me at a time when I really needed to read it.  

From September 2015 – July 2017, I worked really hard on cultivating positivity.  Gra...

On Saturday I raced the US Half Marathon Championships, held in conjunction with the Cap City Half Marathon in Columbus, Ohio.  It seems super weird to write about a race that happened more than 48 hours ago, but I had the extremely rare luxury of not even packing my l...

Truthfully, I can’t believe that I have waited until the final few hours of 2016 to write this post.  After all, I’m a highly reflective person who loves to wrap up days, months, training cycles, races, events, etc. with a complete post-mortem of every. single. occurre...

I am, always have, and probably always will be a little too hard on myself after a race. 

The major problem I have is that, in my head, I have performed far better than my legs have physically carried me in reality, leading me to truly believe that I should be performin...

Less than two weeks from now, barring disaster, I will be writing my post-race recap for my last race of the season: USATF 10 Mile Championships, held in Minneapolis/St. Paul.  

At times I wasn’t sure I would get to this point, and in other instances I felt like I could...
