Tillamook Burn 50k - May 1, 2016
6000 feet of climbing. 5 hours and 16 minutes total time. Rock, roots, steep climbs, and treacherous downhills.  It was a doozy. Stunning course but most of your focus is on the trail. The hardest race I've ever done.  Finished 6th overall again, but first ...

Well, life has gotten in the way of my blog posting. I could go into detail and explain why I just "disappeared" to the blog world three weeks prior to the Portland Marathon in October. But why? There are many reasons, however the most relevant is I have fa...

PDX Marathon: Week 16 (3 weeks out)
I felt better this week than I have the previous couple weeks. Happy with both my quality workouts, and I'm feeling strong and healthy. Based off the feedback my body's giving me from the progression of workouts over the past four months, I'm as confident i...

Monday, Aug 24: Fartlek run (58min, 7.7mi) 5 x 4min hard / 3min easy -  I was definitely fatigued from Saturday's long run, but nonetheless I drilled this run for the most part. I screwed up the setting on my watch again, so I had no idea at the time what p...

PDX Marathon: Week 12 (7 weeks out)
I crushed it this week. I got in three "quality" workouts that worked three different systems at various paces. Typically, I would be happy with just one of these workouts going as planned during the week, let alone three. I'm speaking of a VO2 max session,...
