Running Smart and Tough Decisons

Image
I had a strong summer and fall of good training. My Life Long Endurance coach definitely had me working hard and building up to big things. I had lofty plans for the beginning of the year. But as all runners know, we sometimes have to make tough calls when things don't go according to plan.


Starting Off the Year with a 50k Finish!

Image
It has been a rough last few weeks. Heck, a rough month really! Between battling one virus or bug over another, holiday craziness, and more. My body has been worn down. But I was determined to start off 2019 with my 50k finish and I did it!


So My Ultra Was Cancelled... Now What?

I was super pumped for my North Face Endurance Challenge 50k in San Francisco. But life sometimes throws us a curve ball. And sometimes for good reason!


Ultra Training and Taper Week Jitters

Image
Long miles, sore legs, and anxious nerves! I've put in the work for my next ultra, but calming the taper week jitters may be just as tough as the training.

Ultra Training with Nutribeet

I know I haven't posted in a bit. Been busy getting those miles in! As my next ultra gets closer, expect to see some more updates from me soon.

While putting in 30-40 miles a week, on top of instructing cycling classes, I've been pretty exhausted. Lots of wear and tear on my body. I've seen a lot of OCR athletes posting about Nutribeet so decided to give it a try and see if it the power of beets could help me!

Cryotherapy and Running Recovery

Chances are you've probably heard about runners using cryotherapy. But what is it really? Does it help? Is it worth it? I've used cryotherapy plenty to help aid in my recovery and I'm here to share what I know and how it's benefited me!
