10 Tips to Control your Holiday Feast

Don’t blow the last 6 months of progress just because you have an excuse to… We are headed into my least favorite time of year… The holidays are filled with overeating, candy, food gift baskets, parties, booze, and everything else I fight off every day… Don ‘t get me wrong, I love the positivity surrounding […]

Halloween Hangover…

So you had a bad day… UGH! I can already feel the roughness of the Holidays upon me… It starts with Halloween Candy, moves to a huge Thanksgiving feast and then to Christmas Dinner.

Addiction- Food, Drugs and Running

It’s 3:30 pm and I’m having the same conversation with myself I have every day. Should I eat a piece of candy? Should I walk across the street to the convenience store and buy a can of chew? Or should I just sit here and suffer the mental headache that comes with the constant battle […]

50 miles- Just a long training run?…

I wish I could tell you my 50 was epic… Truthfully though, it felt more like a really long training run. I have known for a long time I wanted to do the Leadville 100. It was one reason I wanted to do Silver Rush as my 1st 50. I wanted to know what it […]
