Rest Days: The good, the bad and the ugly.
Rest days are arguably the most important day of the week yet also the day that I dread and hate the most. In my perfect world, I would want to run every day without ever getting injured and without taking a break. I hate the feeling of sitting around with the extra time that I would…
BSIM Training Week 2
Happy Holidays!!! Christmas is finally here and 2017 is coming! So I went a little overboard this week because I’m back in California and back on the trails and treadmills that I love. Yes, there is one treadmill in the world that I do love to run on! Anyway, my ITBS is acting up after…

Saturday Long Run
I wouldn’t normally consider 7 miles my weekly long run but after resting my foot for over a month, this run was definitely a humbling experience. My foot has felt significantly better in the past couple of weeks so I decided to try a 10 mile run this morning to see if I could go…
