    One of the things I love most about running is that you can do it anywhere. This has always made training while traveling very easy. As long as I take my shoes and running clothes with me, I can run anywhere while on vacation. This is definitely not the same with triathlon training, as I […]

  • Product Review: EnduroPacks

    I was not paid or compensated for this post. I bought EnduroPacks with my own money and all opinions are my own.

    Unfortunately we’ve reached that dreaded time of year when it’s hot and miserable outside in many parts of the country, but especially in Phoenix.

  • Relearning What “Easy” Means (& it Comes With a Slice of Humble Pie)

    I’m finally getting used to this whole heart-rate based training thing and so far it’s going well. But if there’s one thing I’ve learned so far, it’s this: I’ve been doing my “easy” runs way too hard. And I think – no, I know – that most other runners are guilt of the same crime. […]

    Saturday was the Payson Sprint Triathlon in Payson, AZ. My family and my parents were planning on spending the holiday weekend in Payson anyway, so there was no way I could pass up the opportunity to do it. Plus, my mom agreed to do it with me, which made it even more fun. It was […]
