The end of this week marks the half way point of this cycle, and although I am feeling likeContinue reading “Life Update!”

Colfax MarathonWeek 7: Feeling better and crushing some miles!
After a short hiatus from running and spending a few days sleeping more, I am feeling better. I still have a little sinus pressure and I am queen of the snot rocket, but I am back to training! Woohoo! Although the week did have a bit of a rough start with two rest days onContinue reading “Colfax MarathonWeek 7: Feeling better and crushing some miles!”
The Friday 5: My 5 Favorite Balancing Poses
Hey everyone! For today’s Friday Five I am going to talk about my five favorite leg strengtheners. This post was inspired by Judy’s post on the importance of single leg stability. It’s super important for runners to have strong legs, but also have stabilizing muscles in our legs for balance. So these five yoga posturesContinue reading “The Friday 5: My 5 Favorite Balancing Poses”
A1A Half Marathon Race Recap!!
Wow… it has been a long time since I raced. I was hurt in September last year, which put an early end to my fall season. Luckily I am back, healthy, and back racing! On Sunday, I ran the A1A Half Marathon in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I had intended to PR and was even shootingContinue reading “A1A Half Marathon Race Recap!!”
Colfax Week 5: Racing, Fun, and Travel!!

Now that the A1A half is finished, I feel like the marathon grind is in full gear, and I’ve gotta say, IContinue reading “Colfax Week 5: Racing, Fun, and Travel!!”
Made it to south Florida!
I made it to Florida! The way here was certainly not easy! My flight was cancelled and I was forced to change my entire itinerary. I didn’t make it home until about 11:30 pm, but after a good night’s rest, it seemed pretty worth it. It is nice to have some warmer weather AND IContinue reading “Made it to south Florida!”
Colfax Marathon Training Week 4: Upping the speed!
Well… I didn’t see Sage Canaday this week, but that’s to be expected since I don’t think he visits Kansas much. I did have some solid training and put up 34 miles in my last week before the A1A half. Some miles were good, some were ok, some were pretty miserable. I guess that’s to beContinue reading “Colfax Marathon Training Week 4: Upping the speed!”
A1A Half Marathon Goals
One week from today, I’ll be heading down to South Florida for some warm weather, family time, AND to run the A1A Half Marathon. Although I have been focusing on my training for the Colfax Marathon in May, I think it might be time to talk a little about my goals and expectations about thisContinue reading “A1A Half Marathon Goals”
Short Core Sequence for Runners (and everyone else too)!
Core work is usually everyone’s least favorite exercise to do. In yoga classes, I rarely get suggestions for it, and when I do sequences with a lot of core exercises, usually everyone complains or makes some pretty mean-looking faces. Even though people don’t like it… it’s still important to do. In fact, I think theContinue reading “Short Core Sequence for Runners (and everyone else too)!”
Colfax Training Week 3: I saw Sage Canaday on a run!!!
I saw Sage Canaday on my long run this week. Let me repeat that… I actually SAW and RAN BY Sage Canaday while on a run in Boulder. I’m pretty sure that my running life is complete. He ran by at a crazy fast pace decked out in some Hoka gear and some sweet sunglasses.Continue reading “Colfax Training Week 3: I saw Sage Canaday on a run!!!”
