Changing the program!

Changing the program!

A bit of an odd shift for me… I’m making a drastic change for a bit, so please bear with me. For the last 2-3 months or so, I’ve been training for my first 50k. As the training has intensified, I’ve noticed several things, ranging from chronically sore ankles, to a severe drop in free […]

PHUNT!!! And other stuff too I guess?

PHUNT!!! And other stuff too I guess?

I’ve done a thing! This fall hasn’t been a great season for me… while I was able to do a pretty good job (I think at least) with the RVR Half Marathon, after getting hurt at that same race, I hit a slum…. My mileage started to drop, my long runs got shorter, and it was […]

River Valley Run Half Marathon Review

River Valley Run Half Marathon Review

The racing season is upon us once more! This year, my race schedule is much smaller, as I’ve been trying to focus more on training and advancing myself, and a little less on actual races. That said, the races I have and will do this year, I’m using more to push myself. PHUNT was a […]

Local Running Clubs

Local Running Clubs

I’ve posted on here in the past with mentions of the BRRC, which stands for the Baltimore Road Runners Club, and happens to be my local running club. Obviously, not everyone is going to be local to Baltimore, so I wanted to address the topic of local running clubs somewhat. Since I’m a member of […]

Winter running

Winter running

Being a Maryland native, and after being stuck inside for days after the fun of the record setting blizzard “Jonas”, and again for the coldest weekend of the season, I thought it a good idea to address the joys, and possible issues concerning winter running. Bear in mind going in, I’m a HUGE fan of winter […]

Trail running vs road running

Trail running vs road running

I’ve been running for a few years now, and have noticed a trend. In this case, it’s one that I’m guilty of as well. The first time many take the leap from road running onto trails, they assume it’s basically the same thing! I’ve found however, that while both are running, that’s about where the […]

PHUNT 25k/50k 2016 Race Review

PHUNT 25k/50k 2016 Race Review

I’d like to start by prefacing this post by saying I only ran the 25k. While I’m not quite ready yet for a 50k, I’m certainly working towards it! That said, the 50k was simply two laps of the 25k course, so with the exception of the obvious increase in difficulty between the two, I […]

Training for Hills

Training for Hills

If you’ve got a race coming up, chances are you’re going to have to deal with hills. Training on a track is good to help build speed but unless you’re also training for hills, you’ll run out of steam once you hit the first incline! Especially if trail running is more your speed, hills training is […]

Holiday shopping ideas for the runner in your life

With the dreaded Black Friday, and slightly less daunting Cyber Monday looming on the horizon, and the holidays fast approaching regardless, I thought I’d post my list of some Christmas/Chanukah/Kwanza/Etc gifts ideas for the runner in your life. I’ve provided links to my personal choices for your holiday shopping, but make sure to check with […]

Run faster with these two steps!

Run faster with these two steps!

  I’m had the knowledge since I became an RRCA Certified Running Coach, but sat on it before writing an article until I could prove or disprove the practice. Far be it for me to question decades of training knowledge, but I’m a card carrying skeptic in most walks of life, and this is no […]
