Race Recap: Ragnar Napa Valley

How does one recap a 33.5 hour relay?  In the interest of my time and yours, I’m going to try to keep this as brief as possible.  “Try” is the operative word — y’all know that brevity is not my

Tiny Glimmers of Hope

I can already tell that my MAF training experiment is going to be full of highs and lows.  A little over a week ago, I was in a funk after my 2nd long run.  Then, as if the running gods

Everything in Moderation (Kaiser Week 2)

Well, it seems that I got a little too excited about training and bit off more than I could chew this week. (I blame Mick Jagger and his sweet dance moves.)  Let’s just say intense running + Christmas overindulgence =

Weekly training recap: 3/4/13

Mon: REST. Tues: The plan was for 5 easy miles. Not only did I come up short, but I felt tired and sluggish. I guess the back-to-back runs the weekend before (especially the trail run at Briones Reservoir on Sunday)

On Sunday, I ran the Healdsburg Half Marathon, organized by Events with Sole. (Not to be confused with this Healdsburg Half Marathon, organized by Destination Races.) Why I wanted to run this race: 1. Training for CIM. 2. My first
