Sooo, today I was descending a long and very rocky trail flanked by tons of cactus. I got to wondering, "If u trip and fallLori, would you rather land on the rocks, which will surely leave a good…Continue
Takes 30 minutes or less! Cheated on some of the prep to make it quick!1 fully cooked chicken shredded (I just buy a rotisserie and pull all the meat off)A whole bunch of fresh broccoliA whole bunch…Continue
Just want to share my experience with some newer handhelds and hydration packs and thought this might make a good forum for discussion....BIG thumbs up on the Ultimate Direction handheld "Jurek…Continue
"I can understand this woman because it's hard to train hard knowing that any objective you might reach is lower than results you may have reached in the past. As a newbie, I don't have this problem because I can only get better !! This…"
"LOL! You are *so* not the only nut out there! I'm *constantly* saying little things to myself, on long runs, short runs, fast runs, slow runs. Keeps me sane. Part of the "me time" joy of running. I can say all kinds of crazy stuff, to…"
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.

When I can no… Continue
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.

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

I debated whether or not to do a “race report”. I signed up for this one last minute. My husband was already going and it would take the place of my scheduled longer run. The trick was to NOT race. Training trumps racing right now and if I raced it would leave me needing to recover instead of train. My goal races this year are a ways off. Currently, I am working on building strength and stamina at altitude. My passion is to gain strength and experience, and have the ability and confidence to be… Continue
Go Lori Go, I don't know if you will log on again before you run, so it maybe after youv'e finished that you read this. But I will be thinking of you on Friday while you run sending you all the good vibes I can.
