Lost Soul 2017

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.

2017 Goals

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.

Hey 2016, I think you were pretty great!

I think there are a lot of people who are happily giving 2016 a big ole shove out the door this weekend.  While I am saddened by all the celebrity deaths, especially Carrie Fisher this week, personally, I had a really good year, and want to celebrate it.  So here goes, I’ve got 12 13 photo’s for you, with 12 13 highlights through the year.

Daughters of Distance Review and Giveaway!

Before kids, I was an avid reader, I would frequently plow through a book in a weekend.  I still love to read, but these days it’s hard to find enough time to myself to get very far in a book.  I often pick up a book and will read a few pages, get interrupted, go back to the book days later, and have to start over again.  I discovered Audible a few years ago.  It’s an audio-book subscription service by Amazon.  Since then I’ve been back to plowing through books again, but now I “read” while I run, while I drive or while I work.  Continue reading “Daughters of Distance Review and Giveaway!”

Lost Soul 100k 2016

I hope you like Ultra’s, Ultramarathons, and Ultra-Race Reports.  I have a feeling that this one is going to be lengthy.  I had registered for this race many months ago, back in January.  It seemed at the time to be an eternity away.  I was focused on training for the Calgary Marathon, and it was easy to mostly ignore the looming goal that I had set for the fall.  Continue reading “Lost Soul 100k 2016”

Ironlegs 2016 Recap

This past weekend I ran the Ironlegs 60k in Kananaskis.  It was my second official ultra (my first was the Grizzly 50k last fall).  It’s a little strange to think of it as my second ultra.  I trained all last summer for the Grizzly, it was a big deal, and it was hard.  Ironlegs was definitely hard, but my thoughts going into it were much more nonchalant.  I purposefully tried to not take it too seriously.
