Weekly Recap 2/26/17

“It keeps adding up.” Coach’s words to me after another pretty big mileage week stacked after last week’s, and lots of quality in there. Also, shorts every weekday!

‘There is No Finish Line’

My coach, Matt Ebersole, wrote this great blog post a couple of weeks ago.

Planting Seeds for Spring

After a great year of racing in 2016 that culminated with one of those mana-from-heaven type races at Monumental, I was left thinking, “What next?” I knew — and coach knew — that I needed some downtime mentally and physically before making any decisions. It had been a big year of training with a lot... Continue Reading →
