Improve Your Sleep Hygiene for Consistently Better Rest

“Get more sleep.” An often-lauded recommendation to improve not just your running but your entire life, and it sounds SO SIMPLE except … how? And how much? And, um, can we go back to how? I’ve concluded that I cannot, in fact, add an extra couple hours to my day just for sleeping. And there... Continue Reading →

Training Logs – 6/24 to 7/14

After a training log hiatus, I’m going to jump back in this season. Hopefully, anyway. Starting with a pretty light log of the two three weeks post-Grandma’s Marathon. The irony is real, guys. I wrote two weeks of logs last Saturday and then was going to post on Sunday after I worked out … and then never... Continue Reading →

Grandma’s Marathon Race Report

I’m going to start this race report with two lists. First, a list of lessons I learned. We’re all here for the takeaways, right? Don’t trust people who tell you races are flat. Always wear sunscreen. Don’t part your hair down the middle for marathons. Don’t skip the warmup ever ever ever. Go ahead and... Continue Reading →

Monthly Mileage: February 2019

I also traveled the last week of February which forced me to take an off day and then I caught a... Continue Reading →

Race Report: Anthem 5k 2019

It’s always fun to line up for the Louisville Triple Crown series — a 5k, 10k and 10 miler each two weeks apart. While we have lots of races throughout the year, the Triple Crown is when everybody turns up. It’s a big reunion! This weekend was the Anthem 5k and I was feeling good... Continue Reading →

Monthly Mileage: January 2019

As Gabe Grunewald pointed out on Instagramrecently, January is all about survival. A LOT of my miles this month were run on the treadmill. I watched both seasons of the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on the ‘mill this month. And, how did January both feel insanely long but also fly by without me getting nearly as much... Continue Reading →
