    Let’s talk about dealing with injuries or illness or anything that prevents you from running for more than a few days.

  • Race Recap: Phoenix Half Marathon

    After taking 4 weeks off and just coming back from my foot injury, I knew this race wasn’t going to be pretty. Plus, with a predicted storm happening during the race, I didn’t want to set any real goals – just go out and run 13.1 miles. I made a promise to myself that I […]

  • Training Update: Feb. 24th – March 2nd

    I went to my chiropractor on Monday and was complaining to him about my sore foot and he helped me make an important realization. I’ve been wearing custom orthotics for about 8 months now and I pretty much wear them all day every day. Since the orthotics are supporting my feet, my foot muscles don’t […]

  • Training Update: Feb. 17 – Feb. 22

    This was a strange, touch-and-go week for me. Monday and Tuesday felt great, but then after my run on Tuesday my foot was a little sore. I decided to do the smart thing and take a few days off, so I cross-trained Wednesday and Thursday. Right after my run and for the rest of the […]
