Phase 2 of 4 nine week training phases is now complete which means that my training for my first 100 mile trail run is now half way over (see my Phase 1 recap here)!

Just please excuse my total lack of professionalism and quality as I’m… Continue reading Foam Rolling for Runners

I must say, it sure is an amazing feeling to return from vacation feeling completely refreshed, rejuvenated, and not all bloated from eating and… Continue reading Arizona: Acupuncture, Float Therapy & More!
“It’s never about deprivation, it’s about becoming who we were meant to be all along.” I can’t remember where I saw this quote, but I absolutely love it.
