Sleep & Insomnia: Counting Sheep Strategies

Back in September 2015, I hosted a blab about Sleep and Insomnia: Counting Sheep Strategies. It was an excellent discussion with a new friend from Southern California. Enjoy the wide-ranging discussion that ventured from sleep, insomnia, fatigue, exhaustion, and ultra...

Frenetically Frozen

Looked for a good last race of winter/first day of spring test race to run and like a good neighbor, the State Farm Run was there. Last Saturday, on day 852 of my runstreak, I ran the State Farm Run 10 mile race in Lincoln, Nebraska. I had not run this race in many...

Outfoxed by Snowfall 50k

What a month January was! 271 miles of running! A new record perhaps. Or slightly less than what I ran in college when I was in marathon training. I logged miles then but didn’t really care about the quantity of miles so much as long as I completed my long runs, it was more about […]

Ran This Year!

Today, on December 18, 2014, on the 395th day (!) of a runstreak and the 352nd day of the year, I ran past my Run This Year 2,014 mileage goal for the year! How in the world did this happen? Weeks before December 31? (I really thought this would be a Dec. 31 achievement if […]

Tenacious Trail 50k

What a WHIRLWIND ADVENTURE! I RAN a Trail 50k! And finished! I’m officially an ultramarathoner! Yes, really! Last Saturday, on October 11, the 327th day of my runstreak, I ran my first ultramarathon:The Market to Market Relay 50k. The surrealism was overpowering until running the race. It dissipated a little when I picked up my […]

Relax! It’s Ultra Week!

Happy Ultra Week! Finally, the last week of ultra training has arrived. And with it the “taper madness” that accompanies the end of distance training for a lengthy race. In six days on Saturday, I am running my first ultramarathon, the Market-to-Market 50k. It just became a lot more real seeing that the race directors […]

Trail Marathon Adventure

On Friday, on the 305th day of my runstreak, I ran my first trail marathon on crushed limestone. A training run for the Market-to-Market 50k next month. It was slow, warm, challenging, and fun. Let me show you what I saw. Early on there were vanishing horizonal views like this… I started at the MoPac […]

Hilly Running Thrills

After running 8 hill repeats today in training for my ultra 50k next month, thought I would write about the challenging thrills of running hills. As you can see from the above training schedule, I’m running at least one hill workout on average (either just hilly or hill repeats). Hills are fun and here is […]
