Who wouldn’t want to run 100 miles a week through the hottest part of the summer? It was June 2020 in Florida. I wasn’t training for anything and any planned races were canceled. So what in the world possessed me to do something like this?
I did plenty of running in 2020. You just couldn’t see me. While I didn’t stop running – in fact, I think I ran more mileage last year than any other year – I did disappear from social media. It was almost 17 months, I believe. And I realized after very recently starting to put […]

A couple of weeks ago I ran my first trail ultra marathon. I didn’t plan this at all. No regrets! And I learned stuff from the experience. This race showed up in my recommendations a couple of days before the event. It was only five days since my recent marathon in Toledo and I was happily […]
You know how, when you’re training for a race, there’s always something that gets in the way? I figured out that’s just life. There will always be some obstacle to deal with.
