“Plan for Everything Control Nothing…”

Deena Kastor (2004 US Olympic Marathon Bronze Medalist) 🇺🇸🥉 Today I was out early as the weather is finally really warming up. If I wait too long to head out for a long run, the heat reminds me of how costly sleeping in can be. Today's workout focused on a negative 10k split. Normally I [...]

Adios April 😀

Today's track workout consisted of 3- mile intervals at a 7-minute pace. Even though speed work is challenging, I enjoy these workouts because they bring quantifiable results. April has been a productive month, with 2 half-marathons completed under 1:40 minutes and 181.5 miles ran over 27 days. 📆 The spring racing season will soon be [...]

Moody Mother-Nature ☃️

Mother Nature thinks she's funny. 🙄 She waited till I packed away all my winter running gear to sneak in one last April snow storm. ❄️ Today's run was a easy zone 2-3 HR recovery run after Saturday's race. Too bad for Mother Nature I run year-round now despite her pranks. This hideous face is [...]

Letting my HR dictate the pace provides ample opportunity to enjoy the warm sunshine, beautiful flowers and birds chirping among stunning mountain view's. Spring [...]

Running Therapy 🏃🏻‍♀️💗

Wednesday is always speed work and interval training. Improving speed and racing performance happens long before I lace up my shoes on race day. It starts in my mind and is proven the moment I set foot on the track or at the starting line. My brain and body must work together to create a [...]

Majestic Mountain Beauty 🏔💗

Sunrise in Northern Utah's mountains never disappoints. After a long work week, there's a temptation to sleep in and relax. However, as the spring flowers bloom and weather begins to warm, this familiar canyon calls my name. In this picture I stand approximately 10 miles from my front door. Behind me, glorious 11,752ft snow- capped [...]
