How do you feel about running when you aren't training for anything? After being on a training plan for 2 marathons in 6 months--that means I've been running on a structured plan for almost a year--I won't lie. I feel a li...

This past week felt like the longest, hardest race I've ever run. And I thought Big Sur was tough. Complete with injury, uphills and downhills, pooping, and yes, even "the wall", not all of which involved me, taking an unsche...

What to do, what to do? Do you ever feel lost after a big race or achieving a big goal? No sooner did I cross the finish line at Big Sur did I receive a text from my coach Becky. "Send me your goals so I can work on a trainin...

Now that I'm coming down from my post-marathon high, it's time to get back to business. I'm not currently training for anything, and it's nice to just regroup and reflect on all that is good in the world. I'm thinking about a...
