From one who got justice
I am a rape survivor. With all the well-deserved attention garnered recently by the Stanford rapist, his father's stunningly blind and cowardly letter of defense, and his victim's brave, thoughtful, and moving letter of impact, my own experience has been on...

IT83: Looking for that breaking point
When I first heard that people ran races of 100 miles, I was skeptical. How is it humanly possible to do that? I couldn't imagine. But as I gained more experience doing ultramarathons, it became clear to me that I would try. I didn't know if I could do it, ...

Thoughts at 30,000 miles
This is the earliest running photo I could find. It's the St. Xavier Tiger Invite in Seneca Park, Louisville, in August of I believe 1997. I have been steeping this post in my brain for quite awhile, ever since I noticed that I was approaching a hefty miles...

A change in mindset
I've barely touched this blog lately except for an occasional race recap. But I think I want that to change because pretty soon, I'll be gearing up for my first 100 mile race, and I want to document the hell out of it. I'll put it out there because why not,...

Monumental Half Marathon recap: Missing gears
I decided to run the Monumental Half Marathon back in the late summer, after I was accepted into the Flying Monkey Marathon via lottery. If I hadn't made it into Flying Monkey, I think I probably would have opted for the Tunnel Hill 50-miler, or else the OP...

Bourbon Chase 2015: 15 miles of Kentucky countryside on a perfect day
We got perfect weather for this year's edition of the Bourbon Chase, my first since 2013. It was great to be back! I was especially excited because I've been running so much lately that I thought I could really get in some fast leg times and get an idea of ...
