2018 was to be a comeback year after suffering a few injuries in 2017 that forced me to take more time off running than I wanted (really anything more than a few days is more than I want…) I was also determined to learn from 2017. I was going to be stronger, and more importantly, smarter. This meant, taking days off or cross training more when I had a niggle. It also meant a focus on Strength work.

2017 has been full of ups and downs in running. After starting 2017 injured, recovering and running Boston, I was coming into the summer feeling like I was on an up. I was working with my friend Melissa @ We Run the World Coaching, and exciting for a summer of trails.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been a month since Lost Soul already! I’ve been taking it pretty easy on the running front, and am feeling pretty well recovered.

Now that I’m here, it seems like that was an incredibly stupid idea <<Kidding… mostly>>. Continue reading “Lost Soul 100k Pre-race Obligatory Post”
My major goal race of the fall is the Lost Soul Ultra 100k in Lethbridge. I’ve heard so many good things about this race, and back in the winter when I registered for the race I really had no clue what I was getting myself into. Over the last few months I’ve had a ton of advice, and descriptions of the course, everything from “It’s crazy hilly, train on steep hills and be ready to climb and descend”, to “It’s almost too runnable, be used to running trail”. It was very obvious that I needed to see this course for myself and get some time on it. Continue reading “Lost Soul Recon Mission”
