Runcation, Part 2

Greetings, Tribe! By now you all know that the “Thugs of the Forrest,” (aka Bears) changed our runcation plans completely. After the bitterness subsided, we slept, ate a lot of good burgers and craft beer, and then we got back out there. Partially because of the less rocky terrain and partially because it was a … Continue reading Runcation, Part 2

Runcation, Part 1

Greetings, Tribe!We survived the first half of our runcation! Our original plan was to leave first thing Sunday morning, but my partner in crime was summoned to work (remotely), so we got a later start. A much later start. My dear friend (and host home in Reno) Vanessa dropped us off at the base of … Continue reading Runcation, Part 1

The next hour would be a whirlwind of us evacuating the house … Continue reading Runner Interrupted

It’s almost as though it knew I was going to start my training season too hard and just wanted to warn me to slow down and ease into … Continue reading Taking a Knee

Moving Forward

Greetings, Tribe! It’s been almost two weeks since my half marathon and it’s time to look ahead. Between my half marathon and my marathon training, I will have had two weeks of unstructured running. Week one I didn’t run at all and week two was all about falling in love again. I never fall out … Continue reading Moving Forward

Ta ta, Treadmill!

Greetings, Tribe! As someone who works late, and therefore sleeps relatively late (until around 7-8am), it’s hard to get outside for a run in the winter. Plus, the days are short and with no one on the same schedule as me, I would be forced to run alone in the dark. Not an option. Therefore, … Continue reading Ta ta, Treadmill!
