Sham wow phase

As I sit on the bus for our 14 hour bus trip down to t-town Alabama I have been thinking about my past month of training. With the exception of the race in jacksonville I have been really happy with all my workouts. While you always want to bring your best game to a US championship, I knew I wasnt quite ready to go and definitely not ready to go out at the p

Some good and some bad

Todays race was not my best. I didn't run the time I was looking to, I got beat by a lot guys I shouldn't have and just not a good day overall. One good thing that came out of this race was some motivation. Not that I didn't have any motivation before the race but this definitely makes me want train even harder so I make sure I don't have another performance

It’s been awhile but busy

So I haven't really kept up my end of the bargain of posting twice a week on here. But one of my vows for lent is to get 2 posts a week up. In my time off of blogs has been spent training and just being back in school. This past weekend I took a trip down to notre dame to pace part of the mens 5k at the last chance meet. My coach (Artie) was not exactly t

Pacing workout at the Meyo Invite

Tonight I will be pacing the first two miles of the 5k at the Meyo Invitational at the University of Notre Dame. Flotrack will be there covering the races so you should be able to tune into the streaming live coverage and see me out front. As far as I am aware right now I am supposed to be coming through the two mile mark in about 8:58 but that may change de

The whip has been cracked

So after a long lay off of really updating anything, I have made the commitment to start updating twice a week. The last 3 months have been pretty low key with not really racing that much. My last race was US Club Cross Country Championships, I ended up finishing 14th and helped my Hanson-Brooks team to a 2nd place finish. I went out there and went after t

So I really have to get better at this and start making more time to fit a short blog in every week or so. I have been really busy lately with starting school back again at Western Michigan graduate biological sciences program, work, and running. Where I am at running wise, I did my favorite small town race the Minster Oktoberfest 10k in Minster Ohio last we

Strikes and Gutters

I started this blog about a month ago after the disaster of a race at Peachtree but just never got around to finishing it up and then I had some time off to reflect on my last season of racing. I had a long go of it and after taking the small break I have been feeling a lot better running and just reenergized. But when I was down at Peachtree I got to catch

10,000m at the Brute

Well it was a successful trip out to California this past weekend. Battling some windy conditions I was able to come within 2 seconds of my personal best from 5 years ago. I should have a good shot at getting into the 10k at the USATF Outdoor Track and Field Championships at Drake University this year with my 28:51, which was the main goal of the race. I got
