Dead Horse Training: Weeks 2, 3, 4 … hell pretty much all of it

Dead Horse Training: Weeks 2, 3, 4 … hell pretty much all of it

So here’s the hight level summary of my Dead Horse training the last two and a half months: Total planned mileage — 480Total actual mileage — 316 Well crap. I knew I was a tad bit off but didn’t think the shortage was quite that […]

Week 16: It Begins

Week 16: It Begins

Guess what I did. I made a training plan for the Dead Horse 50 miler! Yes an actual plan. Like days and weeks and stuff that include how many miles I’m hoping to … I mean I’m planning to … I mean I’m GOING to […]

I’ll Tri Again Tomorrow

I’ll Tri Again Tomorrow

Well, ready or not (definitely not) the Evergreen Sprint Triathlon is tomorrow. I swam once. I rode once. And I ran — eh — here and there. BOOM! Trained! Ready to rock it. Seriously though … I may die. Just so I knew exactly what […]

Beating a Dead Horse

Beating a Dead Horse

I wanted to write this post on my birthday but somehow I got distracted … for two weeks. I figured an annual milestone is always the perfect place to make life goals and adjustments. Actually the only thing I find more asinine and cliche is […]

Doggies 4 Duchenne 5k

I ran the Doggies 4 Duchenne 5k last weekend. First 5k I’ve run in two years. As an ultra runner, it’s hard for me to justify paying to run 3.1 miles but I love this race and the charities it supports; The Humane Society at […]

Upcoming Races

Upcoming Races

It’s time to get my ass in gear. In the past two years I’ve done a mere two races; croom zoom 100, a dnf, and then a year later the Croom Zoom 50k (pretty much untrained) as the only course revenge that I could muster. […]

Little Red Wagon: A Long Haul Recap

Little Red Wagon: A Long Haul Recap

This past weekend I paced and crewed my friend Sandy at a 100-mile attempt. She ran this same race, Long Haul, last year as her first hundred and I was honored to be a part of that crew as well. She’s had a couple rough […]
