Don't Waste a Moment

How It Begins Now I know you are going to read this and think "what the Heck' but, I had the good fortune to be really, really, sick a few years back, twice. I wondered if I would ever feel good again. I was chatting with a friend about how I was feeling, she had the Canadian Death Race poster on the wall of her business. This poster has a big death skull on it, which was exactly how I was feeling, like death was creeping me.. I decided right there and then if I ever got better I would run that race, 18 months later I did and have never stopped.... Perspective While I was training for this race I distinctly remember thinking, I'm not going to miss a moment of this process. Every flower, mush

Injuries! The Mental Struggle

Lets recap After injuring my ankle in a race (for the 4th time) over a month ago, the mental struggle is starting to wear on me. I limped myself into the walk-in clinic just to see what kind of damage was done this time around. Yes you did it again! Stay off of it for AS LONG AS YOU CAN she says. Apparently she doesn't know me very well LOL. Easier Said Then Done I'm right in the middle of teaching a trail running clinic, they need me to lead, how can I teach without running, I'm training for a big race, all of this and more went through my head. Luckily I have great trail leaders that took over the running part for me and talked me through the 'I must run' moments. Through self talk I remin

Trail Safety

Lets Talk As I'm dealing with an injury right now I haven't been running much at all. I have been out on my bike a little just to keep the crazy's away. I've been watching other runners, not creepily, and their habits. So let's talk some trail running safety and what the heck some road too! Be aware out there. There are wild animals out there MUCH bigger than you. Yes you are lower on the food chain than them too. If you live in bear or cougar (I'm not talking women over 40) country carry bear spray and bear bangers. I know it's called bear spray but it certainly could help in a close cougar encounter.
