Good Life Halfsy Training Tips

Happy fall! Are you enjoying some beautiful fall running with the beautiful fall foliage? It’s only thirty days until the Good Life Halfsy on November 6, the point-to-point half-marathon I’m running in Lincoln, Nebraska. It is a good time to stop and...

7×7 Running Challenge

Today, I completed an unusual 7X7 mathematical running challenge. No, it’s not related to football. But that’s where I got the idea for the numbers: those 7 on 7 drills that are so common for football success. I decided to attempt to run 7 miles or more on...

Agony of DNF

Once upon a marathon in 2012, there was a race that I failed to finish: my only DNF (did not finish). Yes, my biggest bellyflop in a race was in the full marathon distance. As I encounter more runners struggling with how to recover and bounce back from a DNF in a...

Manifest Our Destiny

Today on Feb. 12, 2016, I hosted a blab called Manifest our Destiny, talking about positivity and how we can create, build, and reinforce our mission and purpose in life and fulfill our most important mission. I was joined by my new friend I just met today on blab, Bambi Thompson, an occupational therapist and […]

Running with Friends

Last Sunday, I ran my 15th full marathon in Lincoln, Nebraska. My good friend, Philip McCarthy, was running the race, too (we’ve been best friends since 1st grade as Phil likes to remind everyone). Although we were running at much different paces, I was really inspired by his ability to run so often and so […]

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 […]

Are you Thirsty?

As we approach summer, hydration becomes more important. How do you make sure you are properly hydrated? Remember, when heat and humidity increase, more water/liquids are generally required to keep dehydration and worse things at bay. But you don’t want to drink too much either (see chart). Aim for the middle. Here’s a chart that […]

May the 4th be with You!

Howdy pardners! How are you? It’s Lincoln Marathon weekend and I forgot to taper (HATE TAPERING!), so no marathon running for me this weekend. My daughter and I are volunteering to help for several hours so I’ll be on the giving end of water, sports drinks, gels, and “runner snacks” instead of the receiving end […]
