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 →

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.

Side note: people frequently asked how I have time to do "all that." The honest answer is, I really don’t do much else. I... Continue Reading →

Weekly Recap Feb. 28

Less mileage this week as we head into a somewhat intense race season. This Saturday was the Anthem 5k, which kicks off a three-race series in Louisville, each distance two weeks apart and increasing in length. Monday was an easy 6, early and easy in the dark. Coach had scheduled 6-8 but I didn’t have... Continue Reading →
