Nothing beats nature for teaching balance and strength

"Scarpas. They are more of a hiking shoe, I tend to wear those when I'm hiking as opposed to running. That is Arizona amazingly enough. Flagstaff is about 75 min from our home in the desert! It seems bizarre really to wake up in the desert and…"

Jemez 50k Race report

Posted on May 24, 2015 at 8:00am 8 Comments

I was feeling really good going into this race. Very nervous, but good. This would be my first race of the year, my first race after a few months of living and training at higher elevation. I was anxious to see how my racing would change, if I would feel different. I remember thinking when I ran Leadville in 2012, “someday I want to be able to run UP mountains” I was frustrated because all of my uphill “running” in the mountains reduced me to a slow hike. I could not…


when I can no longer run...

Posted on April 24, 2015 at 5:42pm 3 Comments

I read another article on a former Olympic elite runner,young, in her early 50s I believe, hanging up her racing shoes because she is no longer the fastest. Still running splits most women...and men will never see on the time clock. Her body to some extent, but more evident, her spirit broken. The joy of running and racing gone Because the results were no longer there. I hope to run in a way that I never lose the joy of running AND racing. When I can no longer run, I will walk. When I can no… Continue

Run your heart out.....once in a while

Posted on April 24, 2015 at 3:00pm 0 Comments

Running your heart out just does something to the spirit. Life is funnier, the heart is lighter and more loving and understanding and waaaay less serious. It strips everything away...for a time...but the cool impossible thing is the more I do it, the more stripped away I stay. The lighter I am, the more loving I am.

Inspiration….we all look for it. As runners, I think it is safe to say we not only need it, but desire to inspire others as well. Social media is a great avenue to inspire, but it often paints only a partial picture...mostly of the successes, the most beautiful of all the

pictures, the highlights, the high points, the PRs. That’s one reason I think this website is so valuable. Through this venue runners are able to find advice and confide in the not so pretty struggles we all… Continue
