I’m so excited! I just made my first YouTube video for y’all. I’ve been promising this since my first 50 mile ultra earlier this year (or maybe even before??) and I finally got a new camera lens that makes filming myself much easier! Just please excuse my total lack of professionalism and quality as I’m… Continue reading Foam Rolling for Runners
What an awesome weekend! The Knights won yet another Regional title and I survived yet another marathon! I’m going go ahead to put this marathon in the ‘Bad@$$ Category’ on my resume.

And having just run the New… Continue reading My First Ultramarathon!

Previously I had only run two full 26.2’s and they were both back in 2008 (Houston and San Antonio). At the time I swore I’d never run another. My official race times were around 4:44/4:45 for… Continue reading New Orleans Marathon – a PR for me!
Today I ran the Natural Bridge Cavern Half Marathon Trail Run – the world’s only half marathon to begin in the belly of a cave. It was my third time to run this race and as before, it didn’t disappoint!
