Certainly, there are days that are easier than others. Today, I had planned to run 10 miles, but it appears from the map that I cut it a little short. About 9.69 miles in 1:45. Not great, but a little better than last week, I think. This route is all uphill and then all downhill. [...]

I had the pleasure of being a running buddy to Haylie, a new friend who’s in school here in Asheville. Her mom is the GOTR coach at her school, and due to some knee pain that neither ChiRunning nor I have been able to help (I am chagrined by this fact), I was the lucky [...]

I feel like everytime I write a new post, it’s about running in the rain. So, guess what? I did my LSD run in the rain today… I ran this route, about 7.5 miles. Wasn’t sure when I left to go running this morning how I was going to do. Surprised myself with it, and [...]
