my every damn day list (and why you should have one, too).

After last weekend’s blizzard – nearly 20 inches of snow… OMG… spring has finally arrived in Minnesnowta in all its sunny pasty white skin glory. And man, is it amazing. Winter was rough this year – the dark subzero days just never seemed to…

why you should run the 2018 desmoid dash.

Chances are, you know a caretaker – perhaps a nurse at a hospital or your parents, who care for your elderly grandparents. You may even be the caretaker for a loved one. So take some time out on Mother’s Day, May 12 to celebrate those…

Did you know that we’re gaining about 20 minutes of daylight a week right now? That extra daylight: gamechanger. It’s so refreshing to leave work when it’s still light. And it’s making after work runs so much better. Now if the foot of snow…

what i learned from a 16-week offseason.

At some point last year, the edge – where I usually thrive – started to feel a bit too sharp. It cut into my training and more often than I care to admit, the easy route (read: quitting) sounded was more appealing. The long runs…
