I spent 7 weeks injured this winter, I’ve also had a lot of friends who’ve dealt with injury this year, including one of my best running friends. I’ve been reflecting a lot on injury, and how best to survive (mentally and physically) during the injury, and how to return from injury. I wanted to post about some of my lessons and thoughts.

So everyone else is all like, here’s my race report from last weekend, and here I am, crap, I still haven’t finished my Boston race report!?!! It’s been half written for weeks, so here goes! I’m not going to do my typical race report with splits, and details like that. I had no real pace/time goals, so the splits don’t matter.
I’ve been back for a week, and still have not written my recap… life has been crazy busy, but I need to get this done before my memory fades! Luckily I took about 1,000,537 photos, so that should help. I’m planning to break this into two posts, one as a summary/recap of all the not-the-marathon stuff that we did, and a marathon recap. First up, the not-the-marathon! Continue reading “Boston Marathon Week Part 1”

Gosh it’s taken a lot of time to get here. And I’m not home free yet. But I’m running again.
I was hoping that by now I would be writing a post about how I came out of the other side of this struggle, stronger, faster, and in better shape, that I was better off for having gone through this. I was putting off writing a post until I was on the other side. I realized though, that there might be as much, or more value in sharing this spot in the middle, where I’m waiting for the after to come.
A year ago I posted that 2016 was going to be a year for risk taking, and setting big goals. My big goal was to run the Lost Soul 100k. I was really nervous going into it, but it turned out really well, and I am really glad that I decided to push myself past my comfort zone and into the longer distance. I want 2017 to be another year of going past my comfort zone, but in a different way. Continue reading “2017 Goals”
