Race Recap

“If you aren’t in over your head, how do you know how tall you are?”

Trains, planes, and automobiles has been the story of my life the past few weeks.  I had originally started this blog almost two weeks ago, only getting the chance now to actually sit down and write it entirely.  This past weekend I traveled to Mt. Sac Relays with all intentions of running in the 10k in addition to balancing my coaching responsibilities.

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

Long 4 weeks

I had a great time out there being able to see friends, coaches, and family out on the course cheering me. Coming

It was a tough decision to come out because it meant I'd miss being at Penn Relays with the State College girls, most of which have never experienced Penn Relays before. It's tricky because both coaching and my running are my career so I often have to make

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

Last week and upcoming races

Last week I competed at the Grand Valley State Univeristy's Big Meet on Friday. They just built a state of the art 300m facility last year, that is only an hour and a half away from Kalamazoo. I started off running the mile trying to get a good hard effort in and then come back to try and keep a steady pace for the 5k, 45 minutes later. In the mile I went o
