I tried a new strategy at the Salisbury Half Marathon and am inspired to work on speed

I usually feel like I’m trained to run a half marathon with my regular running and marathon training, but ahead of the Salisbury Half Marathon on April 2, I felt different. My half marathons normally fall during or soon after marathon training, so I’m doing a decent amount of long runs. This time, I hadn’t done a double-digit run for a month. … More I tried a new strategy at the Salisbury Half Marathon and am inspired to work on speed

I’m not sure whether this was coincidence or not, but I found the song funny, as it was true. Oops — I’d signed up … More “On your left!” My hilly, frozen experience at the PHUNT 25K

Year in Review: 2021 started out with a couple negatives and got better from there

Another year is behind us! 2021 got off to a bad start when I was hit by a car while out for a short run near my house. It’s no surprise that was my most-read post of 2021 (as any reporter knows, if it bleeds, it leads). … More Year in Review: 2021 started out with a couple negatives and got better from there

I closed out 2021 with a successful December of running

Before my annual recap, it’s time for my last monthly recap of 2021, about my December running. There were lots of fun runs during this month! I ran 114.46 miles. This was my seventh 100-plus-mile month in a row, which I’m happy about. I participated in one race — as a pacer. This was the … More I closed out 2021 with a successful December of running
