10 Trail Running Lessons

Here are a few trail running lessons that I have learned over the past year. I thought I would pass them along to see if you can relate to any of them! Don’t eat eggs before you run. They will make you feel heavy and make you even gassier than running normally makes you! This can be a huge problem if you are ahead of your running partner; you may actually lose a partner on this one. Keep your kit tidy! Meaning don’t have earphone...

I run fast past Graveyards

Close to where I live there is a scenic loop trail that I like to run when I’m feeling restless and need to move. The track is wide, has a bunch of intersecting trail options if I want to mix things up, it’s only a 2 minute drive from my door and I’m pretty much in the forest right from the start. It also happens to pass right next to a Graveyard. The first few times I passed by I didn’t even notice it. It’s facade and grounds...

The Season Of Giving

“Trying to be happy by accumulating possessions is like trying to satisfy hunger by taping sandwiches all over your body” Here’s a shocker for you.

Nonetheless the alarm was set early as Leigh was heading out on a hike/climb with some friends and I decided to take a day to myself (yes sometimes we do things separately). I thought I may as well make the most of the...

Do it because you can.

Do it because you can.

I was reading an article in the August edition of  Runner’s World Magazine; an interview with Andre Kajlich, the reigning USA Paratriathlete of the Year. In it they discuss how he went from a 24 year old everyday college student with every opportunity before him, to someone who lost both of his legs in an instant in a horrific accident. This article really stuck with me for a few reasons. First for the amazing attitude that...

Magic number 50

Yes, I have a magic number. Now it’s not magic in that I believe it has any supernatural traits. No, it’s actually more like this number gives me the ability to remember what I am capable of when I am feeding off of my last ounce of energy, physically or mentally. Repeating this number to myself, as if invoking  my brain for some special power it didn’t realize it had, is a way of getting myself through some tough...
