Aerodaks Review

Today, I’m briefly reviewing Aerodaks, Australian all-weather running briefs, also known as runderwear (the runner-created contraction for running underwear). Disclaimer: I received Aerodaks running briefs to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more...

Pre-Race Trailrun Checklist

Before running today’s Empyrean Trail 5k race, I recorded a brief Periscope on what should be on your pre-race trail running checklist. Will talk tomorrow about the race with my race report and some photos. Enjoy!

The Odor of Effort

A few weeks ago, we were having a great #RunChat on Twitter when a very interesting question surfaced, something like: do your running clothes smell or stink? Boy, did that trigger some interesting discussion. If one’s running clothes do stink, can you say it’s the clothes’ responsibility instead of the runner? Or is the runner […]

Beware the STRIDES of March!

Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears: Remember the “Beware the IDES of MARCH” line in Julius Caesar (Act I, Scene 2 for us Shakespeare geeks), the famous Shakespeare play? Caesar foolishly ignored the warning of the soothsayer and the rest is history. Well, tomorrow is the Ides of March (March 15). And running is […]

Climb Every Mountain!

Let’s talk seriously about mountain climbing and chasing dreams. Sometimes (like amidst a frigid polar vortex) as runners we seek out epic, tough challenges, to dream big, to truly get outta Dodge, “leave town” and take on something that really stretches us. An adventure race. Or at least a great adventure. Besides, running the same […]

RUN like a BRAZILIAN!

Forgive me for my excited exuberance for the beautiful country of Brazil but I ran there virtually today for 12.71 miles and had a blast! This is how we Midwesterners beat the polar vortex-we run inside (in warm, tropical locations if possible) when it’s just too cold or impractical to run outside every day. So […]

RunStreak thru Fatigue

Despite the snowy subzero temps/windchills here, today I’m 80 days into my longest run streak in recent memory (streak began Nov. 19, 2013). How did this happen? This streak was supposed to end after Jan. 1. Not sure I could do this. But fatigue has become an issue. Slamming coffee. Strange blood blister on 1 […]

SunnySnowDog Sneaux Day!

Happy sunny Snow Dog Sneaux Day! We got some snow last night so our daughter and lots of other kids are excited about their snow-or is it sneaux?-day! Many of us noticed today that God gave us a rare, special treat for the polar vortex blast we shoveled and drove through this morning. At first, […]
