The Day Someone Asked The Right Question

Before I start, I should back up to explain how I’ve come out of running retirement. 🙂 With the Boston Marathon experience in 2013, I wanted to keep in running shape to do Boston again in 2014 to go back and experience it the right way.  During the year, it reminded me 1) how much I enjoy running and 2) that I can be okay at it if I just train correctly. After Boston 2014, I decided to keep on...

Boston: The Redemption

    Some of you may not know how I qualified for both 2013 and 2014 Boston Marathons, so I’ll start there.  In 2011, after an attempt to qualify at Marathon to Marathon in October, I failed.  However, I FINALLY broke the 4:00 mark and ran a 3:58.  As crazy as it sounds, for me, that was the best thing that could have happened.  I have been running 4:00 marathons since the beginning, but...

Poached Halibut

I just finished a run nutrition class last week and in one of the more recent classes, we discussed injury prevention nutrition.  This involves changing the way you see food.  It’s obviously fuel to your body, but it’s also nourishment.  In my class at SMU, I find myself constantly referring to “SAD” AKA Standard American Diet.  But, in my world, it’s really the...

Must pee pee with Narnia Pizzazz (AKA Nueces 50 miler race report)

Wow, I know this race report will be very long considering it’s my last for running.  So don’t say I didn’t warn you. Race day morning was a lot calmer than Bandera considering I actually showed up to the race 45 minutes early instead of 30 minutes late.  And, since I had to travel far for the race to a town that has literally nothing, I had to actually plan ahead.  I had a bag for what I would...

I admit it, I’m addicted….

To RUNNING that is!  Get your mind out of the gutter!  In all seriousness, I do have a very addictive personality like many Type A’s do.  Someone told me once it was genetic, but they’re also blaming obesity on genetics and I don’t believe that for 2 seconds!  So, here I am on this earth learning how to deal with it.  In my life fortunately I have 2 things going for me.  1) I have managed to...

Bandera 50K Race Report….it’s a long one!

The strange thing about Bandera, unlike any other race is I never got nervous about it.  I think I knew going in it was going to be a long day no matter what and I wasn’t racing it, so I just never got nervous about it.  I never questioned whether I was going to finish (like I’m freaking out about the 50 miler as I write this!)  It was pretty much just another race.  Because life is so hectic for...

Take care of your body…it’s the only one you’ve got.

I am truly amazed on a daily basis at the lifestyles my clients lead.  My clients are moms, dads, students, short-order cooks, employees, business owners, husbands, wives, mothers, fathers, grandparents, gardeners, coaches, Presidents of their local trade organizations or PTA, superbly organized AND they still find time for exercise and training. The amount these people can do in one day is unfathomed by...
