Earlier today I posted a blog on the ICEdot Athletes page bearing the same title. In that post I talked about how we take for granted how far we've come. It's important that we celebrate our victories no matter how small. Where do you want to... Read more

That sounds like a good title to a book doesn't it? That's because it is. It's a book written by Meb Keflezighi. I've read a few running books and for me the key is getting to know the runner as a person. I already know they are a great runn... Read more

I know many of you were aware of National Running Day being on June 6, but how many knew about National Trails Day on June 2? That day is equally as important to me. I’m... Read more

It's been 2 years!? Time does go by fast when you are having fun. It has indeed been a very exciting year. I went from 6 races in 2010 to 50 in 2011. Don't worry, I'll never do 50 again. This second year of running has not been withou... Read more

What's the one thing that seems like we are always working on? I think no matter what type of program we are on, the constant battle is with balance. Have you ever been so focused on training that you unconsciously neglected something or someo... Read more
Why run alone?
Tuesday, May 01, 2012      21 comments

This was the title of a blog I posted last week. I think the title speaks volumes. In no way am I saying that you must run with a partner or a group. Running alone is a time when many of us have those much needed therapy sessions. We solve p... Read more

Running is a serious passion of mine, but so is writing. I've been writing as much as I have been running these days. I thought I'd share some of my most recent experiences with my SP family. Last weekend, I ran a 20k trail race at Petit ... Read more
