Sport for Girls at the Collegiate Level #NGWSD

Well this is my second attempt at this blog as I wrote quite an insightful first blog only to have it crash on my iPad before it saved. So I apologize if this isn't as insightful as I had originally done the first time. Sport has had a huge impact on my life as a girl. This is pretty apparent as a cross country and track coach at the University of Louisvil

Sac Relays with all intentions of running in the 10k in addition to balancing my coaching responsibilities.

Track Season & Product Review

This weekend kicks off the start of the outdoor season.  Currently, I am on the bus on our way to the Alabama Relays with a bus full of athletes.  14 hours on a bus to a track meet may seem a bit excessive but it truly is a great way for our team to bond and come together before the final stretch of the semester.  Plus get out of the cold of Michigan this

Staying healthy

The holidays are a wonderful time to be with friends and family.  Also, a well deserved break from the athletes I spend most of my time with.  With a month to get some good training in I was excited to only have to worry about myself.  As they say be careful what you wish for, because time to concentrate on myself turned into getting healthy.  I got some

Rally for Girls’ Sports Day

Sports have shaped almost every aspect of my life.   I grew up in a household with four brothers, and sport was an inevitable part of my daily activities.  Summers were spent running amuck with my brothers, cousins, and neighborhood kids.  There was never a short supply of players for dodge ball, basketball, roller hockey, or tackle football teams.  Eve

Buy what you are selling

As the cross country season wraps up for our women's team at Western Michigan University, I have had some time this past week to reflect on the accomplishments of our distance program over the past year.  Last fall we finished tenth at the Mid American Conference Championships out of twelve teams.  At the Great Lakes Regionals we had a slight improvement u
