Life is…


I’m not gonna lie, I am really looking forward to the weekend ahead.  I’ve packed about as much as one person could into a short three day span and I’m excited to experience all that’s on the schedule.

The North Face Endurance Challenge D.C.


No matter how you cut it, 50-miles is 50-miles, so gearing up to run the distance will likely always be an anxious and exciting event for me.  Any number of different factors can affect how a run goes: sleep, training, fuel, digestion, mentality, focus, clothes, a bad a hair day ; )  To combat over thinking any number of factors that…
