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 →

Monthly Mileage: February 2019

Wow, February, there you went. SO SHORT. My total mileage wasn’t super high this month because a) there weren’t that many days and b) I raced twice and we backed mileage down for both. I also traveled the last week of February which forced me to take an off day and then I caught a... 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 →

Monthly Mileage: December 2018

My friend Kaci, left, and I living our best sloth lives this month. Boy, December, you are always a hot mess. Kudos to every runner out there who stuck with any semblance of a plan this month. At the beginning of December we went on a mini family vacation which actually was a good running... Continue Reading →

Monthly Mileage: November 2018

I didn't run fast this fall BUT I did have fun. Shoutout to my friend Mike who went on to run 2:53! If asked over the summer, I would’ve told you November would be a recovery month after I ran the Monumental Marathon. Well, I didn’t run the marathon but I did get the recovery... Continue Reading →

The fall season that wasn’t

Honestly this face sums it up.  “Have you ever felt frustrated with running?” I laughed. The writer interviewing me for a local publication was surprised when I answered a resounding “yes.” “Let me introduce you to the fall of 2018,” I said. This is the season that wasn’t. It’s nothing tragic, I’m not heartbroken, and... Continue Reading →

Weekly Recap 01/15/18

Oh man I’m so behind on training logs. I had high hopes around the holidays to post them and get caught up, and then it kept slipping by and I felt like I could never catch up.So, I’m going to give a really quick summary and then dive right into this past week (which I... Continue Reading →

Weekly Recap 12/10/17

Week two of my new job and I’m getting back in the early morning groove. Monday: 6 miles before work, in the dark, with Morgan for the first mile. I ran hard Saturday and lifted Sunday, and got my mileage back to 50, so this run basically sucked. 8:15 pace, 141 AHR. Tuesday: 8 miles... Continue Reading →
