RACE #145: Saltair Half

Going into this race — I wasn’t having a very good week. Last weekend during the Riverton Half I started having a little pain in one of my molars. I didn’t think too much about it, because it was cold and I just have very sensitive teeth. But, this was the same tooth that my dentist couldn’t work on because he couldn’t get me numb. It needed a crown, but he just couldn’t do anything…

It’s never too early to start planning for 2017 — right?

We’re halfway through 2016 and I am getting excited for next year already — as odd as that might sound. But, that’s been my life as a runner the past 5+ years. I love looking ahead to my races.

I know this is getting a bit TMI — but, I’m still hurting from Ogden. My legs have recovered nicely — but, I seriously chafed like no one should ever chafe. Like, I have scabs all over my body.

There are two roads to Boston

Running has been a life saver, a blessing and very much a savior…

Friday Matters: The week that was … or wasn’t … I think I might just need a nap?!

I am not going to lie — it’s been a tough week. I’ve just been drained. Not sure, why? Or what’s going on? I just don’t have much energy. It could be allergies? It could be my hangover from PrepperCon last weekend? Heck, it could just be my time of the month? I don’t know? My two runs so far this week have been slow and steady (well, okay, that’s most of my runs). It…
